Have a very demoralizing situation at work right now. Trying to win the Academy Award by pretending I’m not devastated. Doing everything in my power to cope until I can get out of here.

That stinks. Ask one if your leadership or hr for an explanation. Is it you, the practice, or the firm that caused the low payout? If it's you, you can change and do better. If it's the others, you can look elsewhere for work. All is not lost.


Get your resume ready(if it’s not already)and start applying for jobs.


Our firm talks about values all the time, but they only apply to certain people


Was at GT for nearly 10 years. Get out, it is no longer a healthy place.

Depending on your skill set (i.e. anything other than tax) we're typically hiring.


What's the situation?

Got zero bonus or raise with absolutely no explanation. Also, our positions may be pooled with layoffs.

I think it’s a combination of the firm doing poorly as well as me not fitting into what I consider to be a contrived culture

Advice on dealing with criticism of your writing? I write, my supervisor rewrites it, then her supervisor rewrites that. By the time it gets back to me, I just want to go with what the last person came up with because it's so much better than what I wrote, and I'm so weary of the repeated exercise. The process is taking the joy out of writing and negatively affects how I feel about the writing I do outside of work for mere enjoyment.

Urgent!!!!! I will get 23% less if I stay back with Deloitte as they want to retain me. They are promising me of back to back promotions and promising that in next 2 years my pay will be much better compared to my current offer. Should I trust them? Did anyone came across such scenario.

HR vent of the day - New president of the company wrote a policy without my knowledge and released it to the employees. The policy basically says that they shall not park within a specific area due to construction but should park in 2 other lots (there a 4 lots total). I get a message this morning to write up DAs for people parked in the 4th lot that was not discussed in the policy. I refused because the policy was vague and really open ended. Apparently I’m playing word games and nit picky. 🤦‍♀️

Hi, I am a single-parent with a 9 year old daughter. Is anyone else dealing with same gender sleepovers with sexual exploration occurring? Exploring as in my daughter says outright “I am going to kiss you,” to her bestie before bed. Then after 15 minutes of giggling in bed I go to tell them to be quiet and see my daughter’s bestie is showing her buttcheeks to my daughter. To top it off they start trying to tell me they are laughing because they are reading “belly laugh books for kids”. Help.

Infosys website showing review in progress. How long does the review process take?



From stocks to crypto to NFT, which is the next big investment opportunity where we could be the early movers (investors) and make great returns? Love to hear them.

Anyone ever made an exception to an unpaid design exercise? Heard time & time again it's a no-go when there's one involved in the interview process, esp when the prompt is related directly to the company's work, but I'm torn.

Was told it shouldn't take more than 2 hrs, submit within a week (tomorrow lol) and that the process will move quickly after, but I'm procrastinating bc the prompt is related to one of their features but I like what they do, so 🤔

What would u do?
