My project manager doesn't even let me get lunch... meetings are scheduled over lunch until way passed cafeteria is closed. Is this normal? My first project...
Anyone have an au pair and do the dependent reimbursement account? I don’t know how to do the reimbursement form. We pay her a stipend every week but also paid agency fees.
Working with an (external) headhunter for a role, and just found out they want me to proceed to the second round of interviews. I had told the headhunter after the first round that I was interested in moving forward (although I did express some concerns I had) but after thinking about it, I’ve decided I’m not interested in the role. Does it look bad to go back on my word and drop out of the process now?
How lenient are you with billing? Just saw a presentation showing the average utilization was over 95% at my mid sized consultancy and I swear I know so many people that barely have work. Like literally during the staffing calls everyone says they’re only 50% billable and are looking to take on more work.
Does alcohol tolerance affect other drug tolerance? Heard prescription cough syrup (with codeine) will "knock you out and you'll wake up feeling great" but I couldn't fall asleep and I'm still sick AF
I’m so sick of the pill and I feel like it’s so bad for you and I have been on it for years. Can’t get an IUD (personal reasons please don’t ask). What are the best other forms of BC that are low side effects/low maintenance ??
what have you to say about taking 1-2 week break before starting in a new company? I can’t pass the thought of the opportunity cost ( losing a half month salary)
If I gave a salary range in my pre-screen and then got an offer in that range, can I negotiate higher? They said 70-80k. I said I’m look for something higher (more in the 90-100k) and they said that should be doable, but really I want something in the 110-120k range (gave a lowball bc didn’t want to turn them off in the first round). How do I got about asking for higher?
My company has pit a salary increase freeze in place, but I’m starting to hear about a few people getting promoted privately. Are these people most likely getting a title promo only?
Have you ever seen one of the nicest, most talented, hardest working people get fired for no good reason. Really breaks my heart about how heartless this industry can be ☹️
Has anyone recently gotten their H1B visa stamping done in Mumbai using Dropbox. If yes, what was the processing time and the overall experience? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Recently joined a firm remotely and was curious how other firms are on-boarding remotely for their new hires? Mine has been seamless so far, but IT has been a drag getting remote access to everything
Why do people client side think it’s ok to treat consultants so badly. They would never treat colleagues the way they treat us, it would be a HR violation. I mean, I know consultants are annoying, but we still deserve to be afforded some human decency. Instead, it’s usually aggression and rudeness.
