Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?

Is it wrong to not want a promotion? Ive been told I’m on track for one soon but I still have sooo much to learn at this level and I don’t feel ready to move up. I am, in fact, terrified of the next step and the responsibilities that come with it. Has anyone turned down a promotion and regretted it? Been glad about it?

Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?

Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…
