I work for a company with a pretty generous PTO policy and a mostly remote flex policy (4 days a month in office if within 75 miles of the building). One thing I’m wondering if there is a way to help us I get the “I’m taking a mental health day” call out regularly which causes a strain on the rest of the team because we were unable to prepare like we would with pre-planned PTO. Any ideas of things I can do as a manager to encourage pre-planned PTO instead of these call outs?
Any recs for getting into life science or tech presales from a biotech background?
3 YOE, BS in ChemE, experience is split between supply chain and process development responsibilities. I don’t have any direct sales experience but interact on a daily basis with engineers, scientists, and project managers. Presales roles look interesting to me due to the variety of clients and product solutions. Any advice?
Why do we have social security? Isn’t it just a giant pension fund for the nation that is woefully underfunded? Couldn’t we just get rid of it and have poverty alleviation programs for the elderly instead?

If you did CDDs at MBB at the PL level and then moved over to PE. What level (associate, senior associate, VP) and TC should you expect? Would you have to take a paycut?
Recently I have posted my honest bad experiences in TCS.
But a loyal TCSer countered my comments and talking meaningless things.
Please find the attached screenshots and kindly provide your valuable comments.
Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor.
Understanding things have changed there in the last few months, I need un-biased advice from fellow fish who have recently joined or can speak to recent changes
Are you pro sharing your salary with others or keeping it quiet? If you were on a group call with 3 other women employees sharing their salaries, same YOE and same role, would you feel pressured to share yours? I did not feel comfortable as I make significantly more but want them to know.

Offered a promotion where I countered for a higher rate and remote work. The firm reported that my counter offer was going to take weeks to discuss, but I wasn’t “asking for an arm”. Two weeks later they approved the initial offer without consent and against my written request to hold off until negotiations concluded. Now, I’m told that my actions have fractured the relationship
I am being criticized for my self respect to ask for my worth
The job search has been long but I am motivated

In the last 8 months Detroit has had:
* Apple open up a developer academy
* Ford + Google partner up to make a coding bootcamp for high schoolers
* Accenture opening up coding classes for high schoolers
* Amazon partnering with an existing bootcamp — grand circus— and fully funding it for qualified individuals
Wtf? Detroit usually is the city company’s avoid?
Does anyone have any insight into the below inside internal IT of Deloitte (US):

4. Are there PPDs? Is it different/similar at that level?
5. Career progression/timeline compared to consulting.

I am looking to get a new car just because I was given my current car and it is not something I would have picked myself. I used to have a Honda element and I loved that everything was plastic and it was a simple car. I also loved the boxy design of it. I really want a jeep wrangler because right now, I only have one child (age 6). I want to get one now before I decide to have more kids which won't be for many years if I do.
I'm just worried I would be making a mistake. Thoughts?
I had accepted company A offer last week now yesterday I got offer from Company B and accepted. I called company A recruiter and telling I am rejecting the accepted offer. Recruiter telling me you will be blacklisted from company A . Is it true?
What’s with technical interviews, even when everything was fine and answering every question, still rejecting candidate. Is this becoming industry wide phenomenon?

No. The reality is that a very small percentage of all workloads are currently running in public cloud environments. Cloud's getting a lot of attention, sure, but lots of places will continue to need skilled, on prem personnel for a long time. (And I'm saying this as someone who is heavily personally invested in learning multi-cloud, with 7 years of experience architecting in the public cloud domain).
Plus, kubernetes is a cloud-enabling (and super hot right now) tech, so your role working with it will make you marketable.
If it's a role you're interested in, take it.
What’s the ecosystem for the on prem? Your already working with kubernetes and Docker I assume. AWS/Azure still have a wide variety of on prem services. I would take it, sounds like an awesome opportunity.
Ya so your still well positioned to do work with cloud stuff in the future it seems like.
How did you become a enterprise architect?
I don't think so. There's a place for public cloud workloads but there will probably always be a place for on-prem workloads as well.
