I'm so intimidated of getting promoted to manager. I feel like it's going to be so much more stress and responsibility and UNCERTAINTY. I'm getting the encouragement I need but I'm still dreading ..

You get shit on by the SMs while simultaneously dealing with your senior's shit.


@ey3 that's sweet you think we all make that much. 🤓


SM1, pay me over $200k a year and I'll happily remain a manager.


Are you a female? I ask this because they say a big gender issue is females dread promotions because they see it as more work and males see it as a way to relieve work. My experience is more responsibility with experience makes this job more enjoyable


@Ey3 stay a manager... it was the best!


You will be fine OP. Think about the first time you drove on a highway after many practice runs in parkings lot or empty local roads-- it seems scary but you will get the hang of it in no time. Congrats!


I think that's natural, at least that's how it was for me. Obviously delegation becomes critical, I think one important aspect of this is learning how to trust others to do the work well enough and in their own way. Otherwise your going to be anxious and stressed.


Won't lie - it's a lot more hassle dealing with people issues but overall it was a very smooth and natural transition for me. Managers are essentially Seniors with more admin and client facing responsibilities. Can't wait to be Senior Manager now ;)


I'm a third year female manager and really enjoy manager now... But it's time to go for director and I don't want to :( The rule in consulting is once your comfortable at your level, it's probably almost time to go for the next one.


What I feel it will be like. Is it as bad as I think it is? What are the real differences between senior and manager?


Shut up

Hi, I offered from Larsen & Toubro Infotech and Now I have cleared the rounds from Mindtree too and Mindtree said to upload the docs for offer process.

Mindtree can provide me Noida location but LTI will provide Pune location. Which would be better to join as Currently heared they are merging.
Should I go to offer process with Mindtree ?

Kindly share inputs so that I could take better decision.

Shared a purchase I’m proud of (Omega Seamaster Diver 300) using money I earned and I’m very comfortable spending and of course people come out of the woodwork calling me foolish for spending $5k on a watch.

Taking all my power not to clap back at the guy living in a trailer driving a BMW he can’t afford with a dead end job who has something to say about my financial responsibility 🙄


Hello Shell Fishes,

I have received offer letter from shell and have reverted with acceptance and SBO form.
How long should I wait for LOE( Letter of Employment).
HR confirmed that you should be receiving it shortly.
Thanks for your responses in advance.

Hi moms. I’m looking for tips for transitioning my baby from slow flow nipple to medium flow nipple. She is 12 weeks old, a few days short of 3 month.
We thought she was ready for medium flow nipples a week ago and started using them. But there were a good amount of spill (any amount of breast milk wasted makes me 😞; there were more milk in her mouth than she can swallow, and milk end up overflowing out of her mouth). And she threw up most of the milk after one night feeding.

Something bizarre happened last night, still unsure how to proceed...

We live in a suburb and the house next door was recently rented to a single mom with 4 young children. We said hellos once or twice before but don't really know her well. It did look like her boyfriend visited her often.

Last night around 3 AM, someone rang our ring doorbell, twice. I had taken a Tylenol PM so couldn't wake up to it but my husband went and checked out.....


Everyone rushing to be seen back in the office before it officially opens. Why?


Is 26 too old to move to another country to pursue my masters? I feel so old already and feel like people have this expectation that I’m going to settle down soon, but I haven’t done so many things that I want to do. Am I being irrational wanting to start completely new in a foreign country at my age?

Am I crazy? I work in a secondary "College Prep School" and I am being told that asking kids to READ, is asking too much of them, and I am not talking full length novels in a week or two..


Does your team or company feel like a "family"? What does that even mean? I've always found the term to be a bit much and hard to imagine in a professional context.


I think I have FINALLY nailed down my diet and workout routine. Seeing results! 🙌🏻
