I recently launched a new company called EsquireTek it's a software that helps automate discovery.
First, you upload the PDF and within 60 seconds it extracts the questions so you dont have to re type or copy and paste the questions any more.
You can then send your client a text message and they can answer discovery through their phone. I'm pretty proud of it and quite a few PI lit firms are already using it.
Would love any feedback. Www.esquiretek.com
My firm’s IT (especially system saving and file locating function) is so bad 😐😞 and they keep doing updates no one asked them for just to mess with the stuff we already got a hang of without doing anything about the issues we actually need fixed. Anyone else in a similar boat? Do you bill the client for the time it takes to fix the IT issue (or IT inefficiency generally, like time taken to find a file in a convoluted system)? Or is that supposed to be our non-billable time?
I had two offers in had one is cognizant(project not yet tagged) (12LPA includes 45k variable) and the other is Realpage a product based company with 10LPA fixed.

I went to HR today to finally complain about my bully. I didn't realize what he has been doing had been bullying, sexist shit: threatening me with performance appraisals (he's the same level as me but is the "pillar lead" of our group) and replacement. And why? Bcos I push back and tell him no when I don't have time for his random tasks. Ironically, I'm loved by everyone else and get stellar reviews from my project team but it's just him who gives me a hard time. Let's see what HR does now.

I have been working with Cognizant for over 2 years now. The client that I’ve been working with recently asked me to apply for an internal position with them. I did so, however, now the client is saying that they are not planning to disclose this information to Cognizant and that I shouldn’t too.
I am sceptical about this situation. Can I be in trouble for joining the client’s company?

And I did well, everyone was super pleased and now I’m giving my two weeks. My take away is don’t treat employees like crap, they will leave. Too bad no one ever learns that.
Work the system bro
Hope you got other work lined up otherwise they will be the ones with the last laugh. 🤷♂️
I would never quit if I didn’t. I know people who have and were perfectly fine but I could never do that. So I guess I will be the last one laughing. 🤷🏻♀️
That place has been mistreating its people for a long time now. Good for you for leaving. You’ll never ask about your raise and hear, “It’s with Paris now” ever again.
