Is anyone currently on the job hunt? What has your experience been like? I still don’t see a ton of agency side media jobs their mostly client side and it seems super competitive given the current state of unemployment. I get everyone is still remote but I feel like things should be getting better on the job front given things have relatively opened up here.
How do you handle a self-centered/know-it-all/arrogant client who doesn't want to take any advice or recommendations?
3 months into a 6 month internal project. I proactively scheduled a feedback session with the “big boss”/key stakeholder tomorrow (I have weekly check-ins with my day to day lead weekly), and I am terrified. They are highly critical and can come off as abrasive, and any ad-hoc feedback I receive makes me feel like I’m never good enough. I’m expecting to have darts thrown at me and want to curl up in a ball and cry after... any advice? Just didn’t want to be blindsided at the end of the project.
Anyone ever taken an internal role at their firm doing more consulting type work for the firm/corporate functions type work? How was it? Were you able to transition back to a client facing role...
I have two contract offers: One is about Data Management/Quality project for 6 months, the pay is 5000£ per month, the other is product data scientist for an early stage startup based in San Francisco for 4 months, the pay is a lot lot less (less than 1000£ per month). Tbh, I am not a big fan of data management, and I totally see myself doing product analytics which is becoming a hot skill in DS field. Is it stupid to turn down the first offer and accept the second one? I would love some advice
I’m feeling pretty overwhelmed from my current project. Everything from not understanding the current process, the technology, etc and I feel like I’m being pulled in a thousand directions. I feel like I’m slipping and I’m unbelievably stressed out where I’m having a hard time sleeping and it’s impacting my personal life. I’ve let my director know there’s a capacity issue, but there’s no end of this madness in site. What should I do? I don’t know what to do and I’m starting to lose my mind.
Does anyone use a “career coach” not necessarily a head hunter but someone who helps you get thinking. This is potential end goals, these are steps to take in your career, these are where your interests lie, this would be a good fit you see the idea. The other side of helping find the job, negotiating salary and other services would be the nice to have but I’m looking more for the coach. If you have used them what’s your experience? Worth the cost?

EY 🐠: if it would be cheaper to buy a gym membership in your project city than to expense day passes 2-3x a week, is that acceptable? Will GT&E approve?
Took PTO for a week before start of a new project and SM calls me to not take and support a pursuit. Where do you draw the line to maintain so called N/W? Projects, its hard. No project this happens.

What’s should I expect to receive as a raise from S1 to S2? Firm is supposedly having a pretty good year
Some of these posts are ridiculous. They’re like just exited consulting to FAANG/Niche Startup with $150k base and $400k TC with 6 months of experience,you can do it too! Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for. Congrats, but not everyone has that background

It seems morally wrong that consultants are paid more the PhD biochemists, physicists, engineers and social workers. Why is compensation so disconnected from actual value creation in our society?
