Yep👆 if you're working you're billing. maybe shoot an email if your real worried, giving heads up that you are more likely to bill x hours instead of y, because reality.

Agree, bill actuals. That will get some attention

I agree. Bill accurately, not to a percent. Make sure your group or project leads that your time exceeds you allocation. If they push back, ask to be allocated on a different project. If times get tough, they cut the lowest billers.

I am interested in who gets say in your product prioritisation? We are using RICE scores at the moment, but certain depts feel that they should have a say on priority.
We have teams that work on POCs, before they become problems on the backlog-this seems so backwards?
They say the POC should feed into our product thinking and help shape the solutions we come up with.

Surely the POC should be shaped with the problem in mind-not just what is cool data fun they can build?

I am currently into sales for projects in the structural engineering industry. I don't want to continue with sales from here on. What would be the best switch in career without a compromised package?! Pls help.

Didn't have top grades, wasn't on law review. Worked at a midsize firm and was laid off in march-- have about 3 years experience in a hot practice area. Have been applying and had some interviews at larger shops but nothing has come of it. I'm still applying to roles (not many out there) in my area but coming to the realization based on number of larger firm rejection letter that I may not find a role. Where would you go from here if you were me? Was making good money at the midsize...
