Anyone know how Morgan Stanley charges on an sma account? I have a client with an account there and he’s not sure if the advisors fee is all inclusive or not.
Why is it so goddamn hard to get a CI/CD pipeline set up? I’m on a project where they’ve chosen to manually handle all aspects of their deployment process. It can take up to a week for us to deploy. 🤯
I need some advice, I’ve been in a newly created role within a pharma agency for about three months now and it is not going too well. There is little to no structure or direction from senior leadership, no access to client data, little to no billable work. Worst of all, no project is related to what I have been hired to do.
I would like to move on with a different agency asap, but I’m not sure how to proceed with such a short time here.
I'm being deployed on project which has JAVA ANGULAR MONGODB AZURE as Tech stack . Is growth good in this technology for future growth in perspective of opportunities and hikes? What will be available package for 2YOE with this tech stack? Mindtree
Hello 👋 I'm seeking input on some interview questions for a Sr. Project Manager role in healthcare IT that you had wished you had prepared more for. I've gone onto Google but curious what you all have encountered. I've not had a formal PM career but have transferable skills, enough so that I made it to my 2nd round of interviews. It will be with PMs and IT leaders.
Thank you and have a great day!

I have two offers, one from EPAM Systems for 22 LPA and another from @biryanibykilo for 26 LPA + 2 lacs in ESOPS vested over 4 years(50k each year). I conveyed to EPAM HR about the bbk offer and told him I would be happy to join EPAM if he matches it. He asked me to send mail regarding this, so I sent a mail mentioning 29 LPA as reference point. The HR has texted me saying that EPAM can't match it. What should I do? Should I wait for him to call back because I am ready to join EPAM at 26 LPA.
Continually shocked by those who put their jobs above their families and their life outside of the office. Working for a Manager who’s sole purpose in life seems to be working at the firm and expects/looks down upon those who don’t. I get it- her choice, but does anyone ever have the urge to tell someone that an audit, project, etc, won’t matter when you’re on your death bed?? How do you all stay true to your values when closely working with people who only value work and expect that of you too?
A client just left me. He brought up fiduciary standard and cost a week ago, met with him and I thought he was cool after we talked but I guess not. Heart breaker. This career choice stings at times.
Does PwC SDC try to retain employees, genuine cases? Have an offer at 30% but apart from money don't see any other reason to switch. The project and team is good.
Does anyone ever feel like they’re not as good as other people when you’re working on a project and get pulled off to work on something else? How do you deal with it?
I got hired in december and still got no project alloted from company.

I’m looking for folks who work with college career development organizations, particularly Black and brown ones to connect them with a project I launched. Please respond below! :-)
One of my partners asked me to start "pushing things down" to our paralegal to save on legal fees for our client....but I don't think he knows that our paralegal's billing rate is higher than mine (2nd year, and she's been here for like 30 years).
So, a spot I made (concept to completion) got shelved due to COVID forcing the client’s marketing plan to change. During that time, my partner and I were laid off. Recently, the spot aired, but the agency credits a different team for the work – me, my parter, and my CDs aren’t listed. Do I ask the agency to correct it? Just throw it in my book with explanation? Just take the L and chalk it up to that being how the industry is?
I am on an internal IT audit project. The manager in charge and the director have no IT OR Audit experience. I’ve done both internal and external audits. They both said not to rely on audit standards when discussing gaps with the client. How do you do this? Serious question

I'm in the process of applying for a job and am in direct comms with their CMO who I'd be reporting into. I've noticed they've always emailed me or responded to me in the evening / weekends, even with non-urgent emails.
Is this a work life balance red flag?
Will it apply to IT sector also ?

Is 38 too late to start looking good? It just occurred to me this week that I can finally buy stuff for myself without feeling guilty or waiting for boxing day or a big sale. I have gray hair, dark circles and bulging belly and I am finally at a place where I can do something for me...but I feel like I've lost my prime "pretty years" and is 38 looking like 68.

PE case study - I have 4 days to complete. Was given two CIMs to choose from and making investment recommendation. For modelling, are they expecting me to simply use the CIM forecast for LBO analysis? Or should I be doing more work like coming up with drivers that get to the CIM numbers as a base case with ability to flex downside / upside cases? Assuming the former but want to make sure I’m not missing the mark here (no guidance provided on this).

Unfortunately freelance contracts are usually at-will agreements. It’s a bummer if this happens but I can understand this person’s reasons, no matter how much it inconveniences the other parties. Companies let people go all the time, even full time employees. And if a freelance job turns out to be bad, you always have the option to walk.
But you need a solution. My advice is to have a couple of backup options, so if they decide to bail you make an excuse to the client but provide a replacement who you’re happy to work with. They could even help find that person.
If you can, discuss it with them at the start and decide who your replacements might be. And at the very least, agree to tell each other first (before the client) if either of you plan to pull out before the project is over. Hope this helps.
Considering how badly agencies and most people treat freelancers, if I had started a freelance job and my dream job fell into my lap early on, I would take the dream job 10x out of 10. I would do whatever I could to finish the current job, and if that was impossible I would recommend someone just as good to replace me. But no one should expect a freelancer to say “well, I agreed to this three week freelance gig so I’m gonna turn down what could be the best job of my career—or even just A full-time job—especially in a recession and pandemic”
Or said another way ... how would you handle this up front if you could do it over again? Write a clause in the contract? Like what and then honestly, how miley would you be to enforce it?
Technically you can’t enforce anything if you’re in an “at will” state. The best you could do is require 1 weeks notice or that they provide recommendations for replacement.
Sorry you’re dealing with this OP. Why that person would bail instead of working on both jobs simultaneously is beyond me. Beyond the additional money they’d be earning, seeing the project thru and maintaining good relationships is key in this business
That’s what I would do! Esp since we are still remote.
