When you're on a WebEx with a client, and the client gets an IM that says '8======D ~~~~~~' 🙄

How is everyone organizing Jira? A project for each product or offering within a product or just a single backlog. The startup I work at have one backlog set up for the product but I find things get lost. The engineering team then have their own Jira projects where items from the product backlog get moved into it, refined, broken down into smaller tickets, and then scheduled into sprints. I can’t help but think this is hard to manage.
Tips on saying no to a project opp? Reason is because I’m about to leave the company soon. Nothing lined up, but working on it.
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
Need tips for managing sanity with a client dominating your life. Tell yourself it can't last forever? Set boundaries (how?!?)? I love my job, teams, etc. But this client drives me to job search.
This is for ACN fish or ex acn fish. The project I'm on (more like a staff aug but we're there to support the client deliver their internal project) isn't doing well. I'm new to ACN - well, big consulting in general, so trying to understand what that means for us, and for me? (Also, for context - I'm one of the 4 SM's on this engagement (it's a large client and we have a 10+ team)). Continued in comments below...

What are tips for interviewing when your current role has defeated you? I’m anxious and depressed a decent amount of the time. All I think about it my job right now & how terrible it is..even though I’m trying to remember I need this job to financially support myself. I think it has also knocked down my confidence and self esteem and so now I’m wondering why anyone would want to hire me after interviewing me.
What are the range of salaries for a Sr. Buyer who does the contract during the Procurement process? Remote so any range would help.

I feel I'm being underpaid, and would like to see what some of the salaries are. Thanks, Mike
Lolz is it bad that I almost want to get let go from my job cause I’m so tired of working. 60+ hours scheduled for the rest of the summer with more hours planned on getting tacked on. Honestly not sure if I’m also salty cause no salary increase, or if this is just how PA works.

I’m currently a mid level art director and have an offer to be a Sr. AD at a good agency. I feel a little guilty and insecure that maybe if I accept this offer I will be biting off more than I can chew since I’ve only been a mid level for a year. Is that BS or am I right to feel that way? On one hand I’m like okay this is basically the same thing I’m doing now but probably more client facing (which I’m cool with) and on the other hand I feel like an imposter. What should I do?

I hate the city I live in but I love my agency. Since we’ve been wfh for months (and it looks like the rest of the year) I want to ask if I can continue to work remote so I can move somewhere I’m happy. Thoughts on how to approach management?

Got rejected in technical round for networking profile. Did a lot of hard work to crack interview. But didn't make it. Feeling frustrated.

Just joined a smaller firm who uses Paychex for their 401k provider. I noticed they do not offer too many options for funds to invest in and seems lower end than my prior Schwab 401k offered. 1) Anyone have experience with Paychex and have similar observations? 2) I’m leaning towards doing enough 401k pretax contribution on Paychex to get the company match and then do the rest as a Roth IRA to obtain better investments. Any other options I’m not thinking of?
Interviewing for Accenture and concerned about the background check. I have a few drinking tickets from silly mistakes made in college. How strict is Accenture regarding misdemeanors?
