Amazing leaders, I have been facing some resistance from our offshore offices and need some guidance. Context, I am an Indian and been working in US and Basel for many years now. My offshore office in India is all men (similar to my US and Singapore office), however the moment they realize I am Indian, their attitude towards me changes drastically. For example, the team leader in India office (also 10 years older to me) in a global conference call said that the project needs more experience cont
I've been extended 6 times on a project and have been in the same sort of role for about 12 months. I've told the manager I'd like to leave, but I found out I might be extended again..
Checked in at a Sheraton on my bday tonight, but no HBD from the front desk. How many points?

The managers on my project are so immature. I caught them outside putting those whistle tip things in rental car mufflers and putting inappropriate bumper stickers on cars. Ugghhh get me out of here!
Lateral Hire, first engagement rating was subpar. Improvement points are reasonable (and very actionable - be quality conscious, plan ahead, manage upwards). Anyone else had similar and bounced back?
Client wants to go to a super expensive restaurant, doubt that I can get this approved when I go to expensive it. Any suggestions on how to navigate this to not sound cheap?
Anyone recently joined Accenture and just hardlock to a project with no work? How long does it takes to get allocated to project ?
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.
Coming from Big4, interviewing with a small, but successful software consulting startup. F500 clientele, solid portfolio. 20 people in the firm total. Nearly double pay plus equity and revenue sharing in a client management role. Promised a high degree of independence and trajectory for growth. Anything I should be wary of? Is this too good to be true?

My husband thinks it’s not important to do too much planning for a child because we’ll have 9 months to figure it out. This terrifies me. What advice can you give me for engaging with him?
Hey ladies! What are your favorite go to basic t shirts? I was really liking the old navy luxe t shirts because of how soft and inexpensive they were, but they wrinkle so much. I don’t want a shirt that looks like I slept in after the first time I sit down, not that I have to steam before each wear. Bonus points for budget priced - I’m wfh with a 2 year old right now, so I want to feel/look decent but not be devastated if it ends up with baby slime on it.

I'm in my first year and have been struggling lately with wondering if law school and this career was the right choice for me. Is this a normal thing to go through when starting a career? I've also been struggling with mental health a lot which I'm sure contributes but I have a few friends who have said they feel the same way about being an attorney - has anyone else experienced this and will it go away the longer I'm in the field?
I know it’s not very realistic but I wish I could create a YT channel and travel the world! That’s what I fantasize about when I’m tired of looking at PBCs 😂
