Hi all! I currently work as a Project Specialist and a Scrum Master for an agile pod. I want to get an official SM certification. We don’t follow SAFe yet but we are moving towards that methodology, so we have the SAFe Scrum Master Certification (SSM) available through work (which I am signed up to complete). My question is from the resume perspective does the SSM cert have the same significance as CSM?
Thanks in advance for any input!
I'm working on a support project and want to move out of it. So, can one become a self taught data engineer/analyst? If yes, please guide or else suggest some good institute that teaches and provides placement assistance.

What is a decent pay for a project manager at a commercial construction company. Basically I am trying to find out if I am under paid or not. So I will give some details. I work in central Pennsylvania. I am 24 years old. I have a physics and mathematics degree with a 3.98GPA. I have been a project manager for about 10 months now. Prior to this I managed a painting company. I grew up in construction and had construction and architectural classes in high school, hence how I got into this field.

Any thoughts on how to correct a client who consistently misuses a team member’s name? There’s a race/gender dynamic: client is 50s white male, team member is 20s Asian female. Let’s say her name is Jinmin Lee; client uses “Lee” as her first name. I’ve tried to correct it in a way that leaves room for a genuine misunderstanding (HIM: I need Lee’s info; ME: yes, I’ll send Jinmin’s info), but it’s happening repeatedly. I want her to be respected, but feels like I can’t directly call it out?!

Any advice on what to do to position yourself for MD? ESP if you’re not in a client facing/revenue generating role?
Lately, there has been a lot of “shopping around” by business units for the legal advice they want to hear. One has now gone over my head twice to the GC to get a legal “okay” that I advised against. “Tattling” on me first saying “no.” These power plays are really frustrating. We have a culture of “getting the client to YES,” but it’s hard for me to do that when I know the “yes” will bring certain liability to us. Is there an effective strategy to succeeding in this type of atmosphere?

Think I’m having a midlife crisis - I’m satisfied with my work but feel consistently unfulfilled and empty. I have a happy marriage and a wonderful circle of friends and kids.

I am transgender and I don’t believe that gender is made up. When being trans became so complicated? I was happy with the “I was born in the wrong body” storyline, which can be easily explained by how the brain is formed, hormones during pregnancy and etc. I believe transgender-ism can be perfectly explained by biology, we just don’t know all the answers yet.

Anyone have any opinions on Lewis Brisbois? I’m currently at a small insurance defense firm and LB is reaching out to encourage me to apply there. The pay is better than what I make now but I don’t think I want to continue doing insurance defense (I actually hate it) and LB seems to have a reputation as a bit of a typical ID sweatshop. Previously worked at another large ID firm and every day was a nightmare.
