Lol. I feel for you. Do your best and make the best of it since you are already in.

Can't speak for FDIC, but I have tech implementation experience with FRB NY for my prior B4 employer. It was 3-4 month data mart. Pretty laid back.. Like you would expect most govt clients to be although we did meet all our deadlines except for one minor slippage. The slippage did not cause a huge escalation.. Just some tough words and disappointment expressed which all went away when we delivered the remaining work products on time. They did take their sweet time to sign off... I think with sm/Partner following up, they provided official sign off almost a month after we had finished and rolled off.

If you get the job, pls increase FDIC insurance on bank accounts to $1m. Put a change record. Thank you

Just a general tip...I wouldn’t recommend keeping your company name on the post if you’re referring to specific client

I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?
