If you’re familiar with the NYT 1619 project, they say slavery was a primary cause of the American Revolution and fight for independence. Since that’s the case, isn’t it indefensible that our firms close for this holiday and we as a nation still honor it? How can we claim to be inclusive when we celebrate a holiday meant to commemorate a war fought for slavery?
When’s the earliest you told the director on your travel project (you’re as PM) that you’re pregnant?
I feel completely lost at work. I started at a new company 1 month ago and got put on a client that’s just as confused as I am. I’m only associate level (with a little experience from my last firm) but I feel like I’m “in charge” of this audit. I feel like nothing on the audit has been done and I’m soooo nervous for manager review. Wtf do I do?! I’m so overwhelmed.
Your yearly reminder that if you’d bought the DJIA in 1929 you didn’t become profitable in real terms until 1955. It wasn’t just WW2. If you’d bought the DJIA at the beginning of 1966 you lost almost 75% to inflation over two decades and didn’t recover in real terms until 1995. You’d have made nothing between JFK’s death and Clinton’s second term. We are in a particularly weird period of “stonks only go up” but remember those 8% returns over the long run mask generation-defining risks.
Anyone in SoCal? I have a former client looking for an attorney to do a prove up hearing. We don’t have time. I believe it’s in LA or OC court. If interested DM me. Thanks!

Partner called me on my vacation to scold me for “not handling a deadline before leaving for vacation” for a deposition that the client didn’t want going forward with anyway. He also mentioned two other “deadlines” that I missed when in fact they were done. The depo was ultimately taken off calendar, so it was never “missed”. Partner then sent me an invite for a disciplinary meeting with him for the day I get back, again while I’m still on vacation. Any advice aside from lateraling?

Interviewed for a Production Support Engineer role two days ago - went OK, was able to answer some questions and others that I couldn’t. The role was not posted yet on their site or LinkedIn at the time of me interviewing. Feedback from Manager was that I presented myself well and they would have to discuss as a team if they had the time to get me up to speed as there was a learning curve. Noticed yesterday morning the the role had been newly posted on LinkedIn (day after interview).

Almost 5 years at a top 10 firm with a job offer at B4 for a 20% pay jump, is it worth taking the risk with further layoffs still being talked about? B4 will look better on my resume and the money will be nice, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the stress of a B4 lifestyle and potentially getting fired in a few months anyways.
Please, deciding between two offers and really torn. 1. Principal Strategy and Business Architect, Customer Success and Support at Atlassian and 2. Principal, Business Operations & Strategic Program Management at Intuit.
