Hi ladies! I am a new social media strategist at a multicultural marketing agency in Chicago and I was wondering if you all had any advice about transitioning from freelancing to agency life? I’d love to hear about wisdom that you’ve gained and both positive and negative experiences.

I currently work as a Contracted Software Engineer and I’m set to finish my contracted time at the end of October. To stay ahead of game I started to move forward in the interview process with another opportunity as an Application Software Programmer and just received notification that I got the position. I definitely could use the extra paycheck to help out with my financial obligations. Just wanted to see if anyone has done this before.

I’m south Asian with course and frizzy/puffy hair.


How do you all deal with time management - and specifically time estimate - problems?

I always underestimate how long things will take, both because we ADHD’ers view time differently and because I don’t build in time for getting distracted.

I work with a partner who asks me by when I can get something done rather than giving a deadline. I appreciate the flexibility but I always short sell myself and end up pulling all-nighters to meet my self-imposed unrealistic deadlines.

What’s the pass rate for Workday exams, especially for ones you might do as your first certification (HCM, Finance, Adaptive, etc)?

I’m starting my first course tomorrow and I’m just a little bit terrified.

I feel like I do so much MORE work than my manager, when it comes to meetings he's often unprepared and I think my group director is starting to get suspicious. Should I do anything or mind my business and see how this plays out?

Why are white women and white men in this bowl?

Hi Everyone, need some advice. The only reason why I took my current role is because my direct supervisor would be a black woman VP- I was obviously excited because I've never worked with another black woman before. She's been out on maternity leave since September and I've had to cover her role and do my job, which is two levels above mine and supervising someone above my level. Yesterday the SVP tells me they found a new VP (ww) who would be my new boss.
