Hello all, My contract with the current client ends on December. What is the next step after that. Whom do I need to approach for next project?. Can we say specific any preference about the project like work timing?
Client was 30 min late to our call, and says I'll join "now", 5 minutes into the call, his phone rings and he says wait a second until I'm done. Never shows up. 😐🔫
I never want to travel again, do you guys think its possible to have an internal CIO project for years and years if I really only look for those ?

Which title would you use on your CV to better position yourself for client side comms roles? I’m at EY as a manager (external ranking)/ assistant director (internal ranking) with 11 years of total experience handling brand, PR, media & content. I’m interested in finding a new role such as a comms manager or senior comms manager at a company that pays better, but don’t necessarily want the responsibility of a director or head comms yet. Any thoughts on which rank makes me a stronger candidate?
On bench. How long do I wait before I quit? Working on personal projects. I don’t want to quit as soon as they try to staff me so I have a better chance at rehire in a few years...

Facing a bit of a dilemma and looking for some advice. I recently took a new job and was told the role was a support engineer to interface between a large customer and internal developers for various company products. I have been here for a few months and I've been finding out that my real job is going to involve long protracted INTERNAL battles because the client is trying to hold us to regulations that were written 7, almost 8 years ago and the company hasn't put work (continued)
Just rolled off an engagement where I worked 3 weeks of 80s, with a month of 60s before that. Now this new job I’m on is looking like it’ll be 60-80 for the next month too and I’m having a hard time focusing. Anyone else deal with this? What’s your strategy for staying productive. Feel like I’m dragging the new team down.

Hi everyone, I have been working as a tech consultant for the past 4 years in the same company. I am not growing within my job and I really want to transfer to work for startups. I am on h1b visa and I am finding it super difficult to find startups that actually sponsor h1b/work visas. Any advice ?

EY, what is the current maternity leave policy? Does the firm allow leave starting at 38 weeks? Is disability (6-8 weeks) separate from parental leave (16 weeks)? When is full eligibility - after 12 months of employment?
How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.
As a copywriter with a solid strategic agency background: What’s the best way to find my niche? In-house? Deloitte digital? Regular agency? As I evolve into a senior role, I’m not sure how to leverage this. My two fortes are: Storytelling/scripts, headlines, and conceptual planning.

Any advice for how to decline travel? Partner is pushing for us to go but there is a delta variant and I want to be able to spend time with my family without worrying I’ll infect them. The team culture is quite toxic (these people berate each other daily) so I feel uncomfortable speaking up, but I really don’t see a good reason for going there to do work I can do from home.
