You answered it yourself. You choose the project. It was your call. Learning a new skills always takes time, you will struggle at the start. Get on with it. After a few months, you’ll be proud of yourself and a new skill under your belt.
Good luck !

What are my options? How do I not get a bad snapshot? I am new to PWC and am clustered in my mind like never been. In a bad situation. Please help.

Breathe. It’s going to be ok. What are the skill sets? Are there quick tutorials you can find? Or someone on your project that can “mentor” you through those skill sets?

D1, it’s more of an IT skill and tutorials only provide for basics. Meeting deadlines and learning and applying are on different horizons. I feel like I am taking more time to complete a task than I am supposed to this is making me miss deadlines (very unlike me).

ZS 1 it’s more like an analytical skill set. Learning a new language in IT. I have been missing deadlines and it’s frustrating.

I can understand. Happened with me when I was asked to deliver things using Python. That was challenging for me too. I used to put long hours because that was the need. Missed 1-2 deadlines here and there myself but trust me, it got better and my manager was super impressed by my attitude and things I delivered in the end.

Reminds me of when I switched from MIS to CS for a year in college after I was doing very well in MIS. I learned after that not to stray from my strengths while on a critical path.

You already made it choice to get on this project. If you haven't been doing so great you might be in for a below average snapshot at best already.

Only thing you can do now is give it your absolute best, eating hours doing self study and making sure you're on your A game.

I work for a small startup and just got a $3k “market rate adjustment” raise on my $112k salary. I was informed that this was due to the market rate for product design doing worse this year than last year, in addition to the company basing salaries on the average pay for senior product designers in “the whole US outside of major cities”. Even so, this seems low to me and I just want to get a sanity check. Should I negotiate?
