For the past 2 months I have had trouble accessing any non-client or company websites. I thought the client was blocking me. Turns out it was "Websense" that the company installed that was blocking me
The manager on my project likes to ask another more junior woman do some "admin" stuff, such as book meetings, take notes, and even book his flight!! I really want to help this junior woman not do the admin stuff that much. What can I do?
I need help asking for help - more specifically identifying what exactly others can help with. There are extenuating circumstances in most cases but I’ve had coworkers out in bereavement, project scopes increasing, and my own capacities are shrinking with burnout - I can’t focus, misreading/misinterpreting, I’m spacing on finding documents/notes, and overall inefficient between calls with the volumes of emails. Friends & manager tell me I’m being too hard on myself, but work is only piling on
Touchy feely client asked me today, “how come you never talk about your family? Don’t you get along with them? Family is so important to me.” I’ve been feeling particularly alone and lonely during Covid, but even before... I’m 50, single, never been in a relationship, really feeling kind of down at this “midpoint” in my life. I kind of keep people at arms length especially clients I’ve never even met in person. 😔 How do you even respond?
What is the best way to select a developer or agency? Submitted a project on upwork and got tons of proposals. Would love some advice on the recommended way to qualify them. Everyone seems to have very similar estimation, experience and a great deal of projects done in portfolio.
Last week joined in hcl. I got better opportunity in other company.If I abscand in hcl.does it any problem?still I have not assigned to any project , iam in Bench now?
My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities
What are project manager roles at FAANG like? Is the work exciting? Is comp similar to other positions. Thank you in advance for your insights.
Thoughts on nomad lifestyle? My “home office” is 3 hrs from my parents. I want to see if others have done this success. I have friends that I can crash with occasionally on Thursdays, bus elsewhere.
Is it worth driving 1hour+ each way for free childcare twice per week? We are having trouble finding a quality nanny for two days (we have a great nanny on other two days). Rather than continuing to pay big $$$ for inconsistent and unreliable care, it thinking of driving to my dads house to let him take the kids while I work from his home office. May be problematic if Both me and my husband are needed in the office. Do you think it’s a good idea? Will save me $260 per day / $520 per week
Had a minor back injury (should heal on its own) but I don’t think sitting in an office chair all day is helping. Any ideas to make it more bearable?
does anybody know how to be an expatriate in big4? My understanding is you will still get paid based on your home office location(e.g. US) but being stationed abroad.
Anyone ever had a couple of off weeks and felt like they're bombing their project after being super successful on prior projects? How did you refocus and regroup/save your reputation on the project?
Got a 4 in my first year but not on a PIP. My current project is going very well. Is there any chance for me to get promoted next year ?
How is Hexaware in term of Mainframe Technology or Legacy Modernization project ? Good number of projects in Hexaware related to Mainframe Technology? And how is Job security in Hexaware ? #Hexaware
Just moved to industry and trying to understand pricing for pwc/Strat&, Chartis, Accenture and EY/Parthenon. How much would they each charge for a team of 1 manager and 2 analysts/associates for 5 weeks? And which one is more flexible to give discounts or fees at risk in the hope of winning another phase of project? How big is price difference vs bcg/Mck? Thanks for intel!
Anyone use BrainHQ and can speak to its benefits? I’ve been reading about it and doing the free daily challenges but now considering the subscription.
Just got turned down by Amazon after two extensive writing assignments, 6 interviews and hours spent preparing. And their policy doesn’t allow them to give feedback when an offer is not made. Talk about a bruised ego. The only silver lining is staying long enough to collect the October and January big law bonuses and then I’m out! The question is where else pays like Amazon?!
Folks, any advice on applying for jobs at a previous client? As a firm we have great relationships with the senior client leadership and I am afraid that the GEP and my RL will eventually find out when I submit my job application. On the other hand, if I tell my RL prior to applying, I will probably end up towards the top of “people to be laid off” list.
Also concerned about lifetime. I'm hoping they stick with Marriott's lifetime requirement and carry over SPG nights
Maybe a strange take but I think that we should be more in touch with our internal bodies. We can send astronauts to the moon and rovers to mars but there’s no easy, portable way to scan our bodies to see what’s going on inside (e.g., a DIY full body xray or MRI). I think this could be the next gen of weighing scales that also show various health metrics, track fitness, etc. It could help with prevention and diagnosis. I guess it’s bad for health providers who make $ today from this. Thoughts?
Up at 4am due to anxiety from being on the bench for 2 months. Questioning what’s wrong with me and why I’m having such a difficult time getting staffed in comparison to my peers.
Got an interview for a business system analyst role, does anyone here know what that career track can like? What could I do after a few years in that role?
What is an elite night for Marriott properties?
While filling out the i944 form to go along with AOS application, how do include checking account information? Should i include average monthly balance or total monthly deposit? I'm thinking deposits as it should help with the tie out to salary, paystub etc.
Upcoming Business and Technical screen interview with PwC, anyone know what I should expect? I would really appreciate any input
I’m a strategy consultant in a brand/design firm, specialising in traditional branding, innovation and experiences. Was wondering about avenues to join Big 4 or even MBB as an experienced hire to work in consumer branding/innovation. Can I go in as a specialist? Would I need an MBA on top of my business undergrad?
Greatest feeling of success...when you fly standby on an earlier flight and your original flight got delayed.
Anyone know why Advisory can't see the comp statements yet?...as they were supposed to be available today...
Anyone realized their child is a very poor speller? What did you and how did you help them? My child is in 2nd grade and I want to help before it gets even worse. Open to all advice. TIA
Looking for (adaptive, preferably) educational technology for ELA to be used in classrooms as both enrichment for students identified as gifted as well as re-teaching, offering helpful support for students who struggle. Has anyone found anything that does both well? Looking especially for a tool that teachers can get behind and that students enjoy/find easy to use. What do you love? What do you hate? This would be targeted to grades 1-6 primarily, but it needs a high ceiling.
