Team Am currently looking out for opportunities in Service Management or Project Management area Please do let me know in case of any in your organization I m in dire need of a job change
I think it's time to switch my career from copywriting (creative) to account/project management. I am so tired of dealing with clients who shut down my teams work and twist it into whatever they think is best. It is DRAINING. I have no experience in AM/PM but would love to give it a try because being a creative in an industry that fails you, sucks. Any advice (certificates, courses) for someone looking to switch in to the manager side? (Preferably in tech)
Hello Friends, I am working on a project and billing ended on 29th April. Now my delivery manager texted me and said that client needs more support for 3 weeks. So since 9th May you will be billed till 27th May. My team mates are already billable till 9th may. Now I am billed for next week, should I give 100% or not? Or shouldn't work at all? Does billing matters? How could it affect me?
Product Leaders: What have you done in your orgs to build bench strength for your team and promote people into PM? I'm struggling with how to create a proper career path from other functions into product management. Appreciate hearing what you've done.
Hi All, Is is worth to join tech Mahindra from Mindtree with small experience of 5-6 months. How is Work life balance? Job security? Projects? Bench policy..etc.,
Cut from a project, covid19 impact. If you need experience, pm, diverse industry, technical and business.
I’m looking for recommendations for a bench top bandsaw. I’m willing to invest in a nicer one down the line, but right now I want to keep it under $300. I mostly see Powertec, Shop Fox, or Wen. There is a $375 Grizzly I’d consider if it’s way better than the others. Any thoughts?
How is Xoriant pune for automation testers? Also how is job security in Xoriant as one of my knower is on bench since 3 months since joining. He is worried. Guys Please suggest.
anyone working in TCS from more than 2 yrs ? I need to fill the contacts for project bgc but don't know anyone in my contact working in TCS. TIA
I was placed on a PIP due to a project where the client didn’t like our work and from there I crushed the PIP and got off of it with no issues. Unfortunately, I was told my work was great and people gave great feedback but I still was placed on it anyway. I was terminated luckily with a 45 day severance package and honestly grateful to have finally been out of there and to a firm I like.
Anyone know whats the TPP (technology partner program) ? My offer letter has the client as TBD and my role as a project delivery specialist. My recruiter said they'll find you a client once you're done with onboarding etc. How long does it take it to find a client and is the work currently remote or is it client dependent? I was told informally by the recruiter, that currently all these roles are remote.
Ever since my firm has been pushing a return to office (2-3 days a week… Just to be in office. There’s essentially no in person client interaction at my firm and no genuine need to be in person) I’ve just felt such an existential dread. I’m so unhappy. I’m constantly anxious. I’ve had so many Mini panic attacks about it. I want to cry all the time. And I’m so fed up speaking with pigheaded people who refuse to listen to (and actively criticize) people who don’t want to be in office.
It’s the discipline - the secret behind 100’s of Indian American companies is now automated and reduced to 1 hr a day job: 1. Post content, trainings to attract a candidate to your Bench 2. Share bench to other recruiters and clients 3. Connect with chat and close contract
Are SMTs (satellite media tours) still an effective and worthwhile tactic? Haven't done one in years but considering it for a client.
Funny experience - I was in the line at a craft store and started chatting with the people around me. Person in front of me was annoyed about having to craft valentines for her kid's class. Person behind me was getting a late start on his kid's science project. They asked me what I was in for. Me: oh I don't have kids, so I'm picking up a new hobby (watercoloring). Them: oh. You must have a lot of free time and money huh. Me: yeah it's pretty great 😃👍
Any fish available to help me with a data onboarding assignment for a client? I’m a whiz with Liveramp but client uses Adobe (so I’m a fish...out of water). Any Adobe pros?
How do you measure bench strength?
Hi guys, I am updating my ux design portfolio. Any good project ideas that I can work on ? Please recommend.
How do you deal with a manager who always blame you for actions that the manager instructed me to do in the past? E.g. manager reviews client decks with you and instructs to just note a strict budget to report. After a week, manager rereads the same deck and blames me for not supporting the budget that was added per the manager’s request. We always have this situation, no matter how much I ask for clarity in any internal reviews. I even sent back the emails and slack chats as an attachment.
May I know how's the Colt project in HCL
Is anyone attending SXSW in Austin next week?
Helllo- a fish out of her bowl here. My client is a defendant in chapter 11 bankruptcy. Any tools, guidance, or support on a successful answer/ defenses?
Congratulations to all 3 of you for what you’ve accomplished so far. All your journeys are inspiring. My questions: how do you push for diversity in hiring practices in a meaningful way? Any recommendations on ensuring firms are committing to this throughout the life cycle of all employees (promotions, recognition etc).
Has anyone successfully negotiated a title? I was looking for Senior Manager positions but applied for some Mgr positions too. I’m up for promo next year at my current job as well. The current industry offer meets my comp expectation but planning to see if they would bring me in as a senior manager. There isn’t a set hierarchy for the team as of right now as they are building the team and I’d be reporting to a senior executive. Any talking points/tips that might help me negotiate?

@Product Managers: what is your reply?
I want to buy my first house/investment property and with that being said I would like to house hack it and be somewhere in CA so that I can still be around friends and family. Don’t think I can do OOS as for my first property I want to be able to manage it and be hands on. Does anyone have any advice for me?
Has anyone else been in the same boat as me? Left consulting for the industry - got a pay bump and moved to a second tier city (lower costs) but effing hate my industry job. It’s only been 3 months. Thinking about switching back to consulting. Too early? Red flag?
Job applications where you need to write 3-4 prompts each with ~500 words are so frustrating. Not a bit deal if you're doing it for one company, but when 5-6 companies are asking for it, it's a huge time commitment.
Anyone tried Current? Feedback? 4% APY but only on $6000. https://www.cnbc.com/select/current-fintech-company-offering-savings-pods-4-percent-interest-rate/
Shooting in the dark here but by any chance is there any other member here that has booked a new construction townhome in Sudbury, Massachusetts by Pulte Homes? Construction has been long delayed due to Eversource utility company and with this market where the rates are increasing every day, just wanted to see how to proceed if anyone else is facing similar issues or ways to back out without loosing earnest deposit money (approx 70k) as it has been more than 6 months delay.
I’ve been seeing so many threads where people get “offended” by something someone said because it doesn’t align with their beliefs/views which then gets pointed out and turns into a “you can’t say xyz, because you will offend this and that”. If you get offended over anything and everything then get off social media, or better off just stick to work emails, those are always fake and politically correct.
I don't think AI will leave us jobless. I just think there will be a proliferation of bullshit jobs while AI does the heavy lifting. Or something like that.
What's the secret to your success?
If you had to designate a sixth vital sign, what would it be? Thinking about this after watching Dope Sick.
Renegotiating my contract and curious about maternity leave policies at other practices/hospitals. Do you get paid leave? If so how much time off & are you getting full pay? We are a group of about 75 employees, 6 docs with 5 PA’s and only unpaid 12 weeks off.
In the process for DoorDash S&O Associate. Any insight into WLB and hours? FWIW I love my job right now (1 year 4 months in) so unsure about making a switch
