Following bc I face similar issues. I hope it gets better for you soon. As a side note I mentioned a few 13 hour days I did a week and it seemed to help me.

Following because I am also having the same experience. No wisdom from me but just know you’re not alone.

It sounds like you are over staffed. Do you have some sort of work coordinator or mentor partner you can go to who can help you potentially get off some of the deals you are on and make sure you don’t get staffed on anything new for awhile?

I’m afraid that if I ask to get rid of things that they won’t later keep giving me work. Both choices are stressful.

I mean, they can see me hours, right? I’m afraid to pipe up and seem … lazy. Although it’s day two of no sleep for me.

I appreciate this!

You can’t do more than work. You also need to eat and sleep. Once it gets too much, it’s not you anymore, it’s them. Keep raising with partners that you need help cos you are underwater and can’t meet all the deadlines. In writing. That’s what I did and do. In my old firm they didn’t care most of the time and were also not too particular about artificial deadlines missed. In the new firm they actually care and add help or say it’s ok to miss for a bit 😉. I’m in corporate, so 90% of deadlines are fake.

Is it worth exploring contract to hire position at Walmart while I am currently a FTE at a product company (average salary and decent workload)? I told them unless they confirm that they would hire after 3-4 months, I wouldn't be comfortable. Any suggestions on how to approach this ? I am not in a hurry to look outside, just waiting for the right opportunity and btw, I cleared virtual onsite interviews at google and right now in team match phase (with no update in last 3 weeks).

Headed to Baltimore and DC in a few weeks and looking for places to see and restaurant recommendations. Traveling with two teenage girls and all of us are adventurous eaters, would prefer local restaurants (cuisine and price range does not matter). Will have day and a half in Baltimore (inner harbor area) and 2 days in DC (downtown). Thanks in advance!

I thought that too of some of the middle eastern and Caribbean island managers I worked with on a job once, but they turned out to be the most supportive and inquisitive. But I feel ya, sometimes you can sense if they'll be hostile toward you. But I don't give af at this point. In the end, they're still professionals working for Big 4 and probably won't dare say anything to you about it, even if it does bother them. Way I see it, ignorant people like that don't go very far working in our industry.
