How to get out of a client based project? What reasons can we give so that they will provide me any other project?
For the past several months I've watched painfully as my utilization suffered because I was assigned to a project that does not allow me to be fully utilized (EM also nitpicks hours billed)...my manager and ppmd are already aware of the situation but haven't offered up another engagement. How can I fix this situation without annoying them?

Hi All, I was offered a role with Aecoms San Francisco office working with an energy client for a midlevel associate environmental planner.

Pretty new to digital marketing. As a BA all I need in my current job is to be able to translate client's requirements to developers. I am good with Databases and that was one of the things we get to work on here but have never worked on Digital marketing stuff.
I am clueless at this time where to start learning from and how should I see my career progress in this industry.
What should I consider....best path etc?
Please guide me.
Hello everyone, so I am confused about this issue of mine. I have received a 50% hike from CTS but have received another 80% from another consultancy for MS client. I am not sure which one to choose since CTS might be able to bump me up to the same.
I need advice. I've been in manufacturing for 22 years. I left my company after 21 years because I thought I was burnt out of my company. I went to another manufacturing plant that has similar pay/benefits. My new company treats me well but I get irritated quickly and I'm really thinking I'm burnt out of the industry. I'm 41 and don't know what to do? Is it too late to get out of manufacturing and start over. I'm a project manager. I would love advice. I really think my passion is gone.

Guys, I need a suggestion from everyone one of you. Salary for my experience as per current market standards in 28 to 30 LPA, which is almost 80 to 90% increment from my current CTC. Should I look for switch now or should I wait for another appraisal, as I am currently onboarded for a new project. I am thinking it will create a bad impression if I switch when I am entering into a new project, so thinking to switch after 6 months. What is your suggestions, please comment

AAPL - likely getting assigned on my 150p today, with it trading around 146 this morning. B/e 147. Would you (1) take the assignment and sell covered calls to drop the cost basis further, keeping in mind its AAPL so I don’t mind holding long term, or (2) roll out the puts by 1 month and drop the strike price from 150 down to 145 for an even exchange?

Anyone using Amex Blue Cash Preferred for Uber rides? It’s supposed to be 3% cash back on transportation, including Uber and Lyft, but for some reason it shows 1% on all my Uber rides in December (and it was 3% previously). Not sure if it’s just me or if it’s across the board

Have a Vietnamese guy on my team. Smart and hardworking, and looking to advance. His biggest obstacle is presentation and communication skills; his accent is thick and he speaks very fast. How would you approach the conversation around improving his communication style?

I usually don't post serious stuff here on LinkedIn, but wanted to share a struggle I've faced, and hidden, for a long time. A stigma that might cause me to lose my job, or at least my colleagues' respect, now that I'm admitting it here in public. But I courageously share in the hopes that it might help even one person find the strength to face and admit it themselves, and maybe de-stigmatize it moving forward.
I secretly like Coldplay.
Now give me my 400,000 likes, please.

For me a typical day looks like this
9 am- sign in and check emails
930-11 : look for a new job
11-2 lunch and nap
2-3 : sometimes meetings, mostly begging people for billable work
3-4:30 - proposal work if I have it or more job hunting
5-9pm family time and dinner
10-3am - netflix, videogames, cry myself to sleep
I’m onboarding at a new consulting firm (big4). I was told in a big onboarding meeting with 300+ people in all kinds of diff roles at the firm that the ideal utilization rate is 80% billable. How long did it take you to get to 80% billable? And are there ever any consulting roles where you can consistently be less than 80% billable and still get promoted, get rated well, etc eg if your role just naturally involves a lot of admin work like proposal writing?
