Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)
TFW the client takes away your tools written in the contract, but your leadership is dragging their feet on the change order. *wears this to team dinner*
We have two directors on my project that don't like each other so they set up two different SharePoints where they share their information....They also use analysts on th the team to ask each cont....
Damn...when you decide to take a 💩 10 minutes before a client meeting and both your feet fall asleep! 😨 #neveragain #cantgetupoffthisseat
I will be getting 3 months sabbatical break. I have pretty good experience in traditional etl and cloud. Now managing project where we will be getting ML based use cases.Want to master hands on ML or intermediate level data science skills. Which are key topics to focus on and what free/paid resources available online. I did extensive shell scripting and c programing 5 years back but haven't coded anything in python. What areas of python I need to focus for data engineering and ML.
The long and the short of it. I was laid off a couple of months ago, the clients on the account I ran loved me. Can I hit the client up about freelance? The non-solicitation part in my severance package mentions something about a year (which hasn’t passed yet), but still I’m no lawyer and it’s mostly mumbo jumbo to me.
Was going to give my two weeks notice in November. Found out today I am booked on a 3 week project across APAC.. so I try and stay a few more weeks? 😳
Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.
I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented. I'm looking to make a career switch so I can both create and execute on my strategies. A product management path seems very promising for this. Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?
How is slalom compared to Accenture? Will probably have 0 travel until next year and wondering if it is still a better choice for work life balance. Since this project started last month, I am working 12 hours everyday and on weekends. I'm just analyst

Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
Client: Well it’s a pitch, but not really, you got the job, but I need two more people to convince, help me make endless presentations and reviews to a ghost boss so you can get nothing in the end.
Hi guys... I'm currently serving my notice period. I have 2 months left to serve. I was talking to my projects client regarding the future tasks and I sort of let them know that I have resigned. Later I am thinking why the hell did I need to tell them. Did I do the right thing ?? Will my management create any issue regarding this. Is it a big issue letting clients know?what can happen?? Did I do the right thing??

Let’s say you sell a 3yr long project in September. Do you put the 3yr project in the CRM or break it down? Breaking down is complicated, but full deal close ruins reporting. Firm can’t decide.
How many people are suddenly managing an intern they didn’t ask for because project leadership requested one without any idea or scope of what they’d actually do? 🙋🏼♀️
Can someone please help me navigate concerns about the vaccine? Literally all I hear from Fox News zombies saying big pharma and Bill gates are pushing the vax for personal profits only and Covid is not that deadly. What has worked with those in the inner network circle? What hasn’t? My pregnant wife who is nurse received both doses and I think a couple relatives believe the baby is going to be a cyborg.
Dear Amazing and incredible folk of fishbowl app, I received a HireVue interview for the 2022 New analyst position within Internal Audit at Goldman Sachs. I will be greatly obliged if you could please share your experiences and what kind of questions I should expect. Further, do you get do overs if you start to mess up an answer? I had applied to technology audit so how much should I be prepared to talk about auditing as a service? Once again any insights will go a long way. Thank you :)

How do you all view the importance of your base/commission ratio as part of your compensation plan? Is it worth it to stick it out with a company where 2/3 of OTE is commission based?

Let’s say you have PTSD and that traveling is one the triggers. At what point would you bring this up in the hiring process for a remote job when they expect you travel a handful of times a year? I’m afraid if I say anything that I’d never get hired.
