Is it considered bad etiquette or inflammatory to ask my company to not have me listed on the company’s website?
My company is asking us to put bios on our their website complete w/photos, “qualifications,” & interests. My job gives me an entry level job title but I do so much more for the company than what my title implies and am poorly compensated. Since I also do freelance work and consulting I don’t want potential clients to see my lower job title & hurt my personal branding. Bad idea 2 ask?

I'd discuss this with your manager and get a read on how it would be perceived. I would also present this as a privacy concern, do not mention the job title and freelance issues.

Appreciate it

I’d also frame this as a privacy concern more than anything, I think that’s the safest way to go.

Hello everyone,
Does anyone know about designation hierarchy in Wipro consulting? Also, do they have bonus apart from fixed compensation?

How do you handle an employee that is taking advantage of this WFH environment? I understand we need to be sensitive as people have things they are going through, but where do we draw the line? For context, this employee is a single male and never logs online before 10:30am. I have bit my tongue for weeks and weeks but feel a conversation is due. Should I wait until after the holidays at this point? Ah- advice welcomed!

Iapplied for a remote design position in the UK on Indeed. I was notified by text to schedule an interview through Kailaza. I interviewed and was asked a series of questions through the messaging app.

A few days later I was messaged to check my email. There was an offer letter, W2, I9, and direct deposit form. The letter outlined equipment, salary, benefits, etc.

I’m sitting on it, questioning the validity of the job/offer. I never had a call/video with anyone. VERY STRANGE.

Just wondering if any Junior designers feel the same but I work as the only graphic designer in a small digital marketing agency and lately there isn't any new projects and work coming in at least in my "department". No one is really touching base on anything but I'm still getting paid a salary ($42k/y). I worry that they may just cut me off any time soon since I feel I haven't been contributing as much as I want despite reaching out for any new requests. Thought?
