I’m planning on quitting my job but I am working out of town. I have a couple of interviews lined up in a different city but I am on the tail end of a large construction project which I am in the field managing. I feel like I’m having to babysit the project Monday-Saturday 7AM - 5PM. It’s becoming unbearable. How do I juggle interviewing when I am extremely busy on the jobsite and working in one of the most toxic environments I’ve ever been in. I don’t want to ruin relationships but I have to go

Take a day or two off. It's your PTO. The project will be there when you come back.

Most companies are doing virtual/phone interviews for the first step right now- maybe get through a few of those and then you’ll know if it’s worth taking time off.

Yeah take PTO or something. I usually try to schedule interviews like early in the morning or in the last hour of the day. I would either come an hour late or leave an hour early or so. Don’t have to take a full day leave. Usually Hiring managers are pretty flexible.

Hello Folks,

Advice Needed.

Im a Ux Designer, i have got an offer from wipro and Leadsquared.
Package wise both are same.
Im confused to make a decision.

Leadsquared is a SaaS based organisation, no idea wether its gonna come under Service or Product, Wipro is service which im sure of.

My fear is, I heard that in wipro we would be put on bench, if we dont get a client in 1 or 3 months, then they will kick out handing the termination.

Please help, response is highly Valued.

Any insights on KPMG vs. FTI Consulting?

KPMG: federal advisory, $90k base, $8k sign-on bonus, 20 days PTO

FTI: strategic communications, $70k base, $2.5k sign-on bonus, 16 days PTO

I know the KPMG offer is a lot better, and while I like the company, I do like FTI more. Both are for entry-level positions in DC, and both jobs are relatively similar. Would it be worth working at a Big 4 for a year or two and then trying to switch over?

What's the average pay for a project manager?

Does anyone ever feel like working in this industry is just overall toxic? Unreasonable deadline times, every single client just being cheap (always quantity over quality), having to play this game of not including everything when you know it is needed, temporary fixes, blame games, and then clients always acting like they are the victim. It doesn’t surprise me but the overall things that happen behind the scenes just for people to get decent work and stay in business just wow…
