Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor.
Understanding things have changed there in the last few months, I need un-biased advice from fellow fish who have recently joined or can speak to recent changes
Anyone else pick a really bad time to get a new Amex? Not going to get the bonus points for spend the first three month with all travel canceled
My company will be doing holiday party this year! It’s been three years since I went to a legit holiday party 🤣 I have been spoiled by past parties at the wardolf Astoria or tavern on the green and my last employer had really bad parties - think crappy dinner at a chain restaurant or white elephant exchange in the office. I am not making sense …
Does anyone know if I add my bank account number to do automatic payments on a credit card in my husband name, will it work? I’m an authorized user to the credit card.
11 hrs on a workday can expense dinner but 4 hrs on a weekend or holiday can expense lunch. Am I supposed to be working 7 hrs every workday or 1-2 hrs every weekend 🤔
My father is an accredited investor and invests in private companies. I said I’d give him $50k for one of the investments but technically it’s all in his name. 3x return. Any way to touch that money without double taxation (expecting to pay his highest tax bracket on the returns since shorter than 1 year and then gift tax above $30k)? Thinking about asking him to put it in a separate bank account in his name linked to my credit card - but still likely too much money to burn through.
Who has some good holiday party stories?

Hi ladies. I’m 11 weeks pregnant and have been suffering from morning sickness all day every day for the last 5 weeks. It’s been extremely difficult staying on top of everything at work (I’m in a very busy practice group at Kirkland) and am wondering if anyone has gone through this and if anything helped. I’ve tried all of the conventional methods (eating small meals, vitamin B6, ginger etc) but nothing has worked 🥺.

Hi lady fishies, what do you guys do when you have a book as a goal? Read it on company time? But I feel I don't have that time. Also, have any sales books with woman authors to recommend. Can't stomach any more men than required right now.
What's your end of the year goal? Personally or professionally? My personal goal is to finish 2 more self help/professional advancement books by January 1st. Currently reading "It didn't start with you" by Mark Wolynn. Taking rec's too if you've read any good ones!
I was reminded today, while listening to Conversations with Women In Sales podcast, to eliminate the word SORRY from my day to day communications.
SORRY for bothering you do you have a moment to talk?
SORRY can you repeat that?
SORRY can we reschedule?
SORRY I can’t talk right now.
As women we lean heavily on this word because we are taught to be ‘nice’ and therefore we utilize SORRY as a way to soften our communication. Anyone else use this too often?
Do you people look down at sales? I have received comments from family & friends, sharing I should do something more stable like consulting. I actually enjoy selling, and will ignore the comments, have you received the same criticism, how did you handle it?
Has anyone changed their last name during job hunting? Or best to wait until you land new gig and then start the process?
I’m currently a sales development rep and I’ve been with the company for almost 11 months. I’m interested in making a lateral move into sales recruiting or Account management preferable within the company but open to outside because (1) I don’t feel like I can be successful in this role and (2) the base pay is very low and not competitive enough to live in SF. I briefly spoke to my manager about the pay but would love to know how to bring this topic up again and especially around promotions.
How is everyone doing with the current economic concerns? Are you feeling good about your work situation?
Has anyone left a company because of a really annoying coworker? Any tips on how to deal with them in order to stay?
What are your work hours? A company I am interviewing for expects in-office 8-5 pm all while touting work life balance and a 1-hour lunch break (that’s to be had with the team). Smells like a sneaky 9-hour work day to me. Thoughts?
Looking for advice and tips please: im interviewing for a sales mgmt role (to backfill my boss who left), and have been an individual contributor in B2B sales for 13 years. I want to move into leadership and this would be my breakthrough, but I don’t know how to prep for this interview. Any thoughts on what they might ask me, or how I can best prepare for this? Thanks!
This is such an amazing reminder on how to hang on to our power as women.

Hi There - I selling homes and have been getting along OK, but I’m looking for a remote sales or account management role (limited - no travel) in tech. I am also a project manager with Agile and Scrum. Does anyone have any leads for current openings?
Can anyone speak to the stress levels of saas sales with a long sales cycle? I can’t tell if I’m burnt out on sales or just my company. I make pretty good money but the way it’s set up my sales cycle is basically a week and you need to make A LOT of deals happen every month. Can’t decide if I’d feel the same way in every sales job
Does anyone here work at Datadog? I am in a interview process there. The most are reviews are positive in Glassdoor, however I saw some very bad recent comments.
Go do whatever makes you happy. Life is short
Same boat here but we have to do what's best for our soul. You can see family when it's not as expensive after the holidays. Don't let hallmark holidays shame you into thinking you have to see family on the specific dates of the year
As much as it sounds nice to go on a personal holiday, Christmas is for family. Maybe being around them will help you feel okay about being single this year?
No it isn’t, do what makes you happy and you just saw each other at Thanksgiving. Be well!
Not at all. There's nothing selfish about wanting an alone time for the holidays. But I think you need to explain your reason so they would understand where you're coming from. It will be your first solo Christmas, and for your family, it would probably be their first Christmas without you.
Nope. You do you. Just explain to your family that you needed this 'me time' for personal growth and reflection. You're not selfish.
I think your family would be understanding, especially if you just saw them!
Nope not at all. It’s called self-care. If your family is anything like mine being around them does more harm then good. They’re very negative and expect you to care about what they think when you just don’t (about your life and how you decide to live - cause you’re doing great). Go take such much needed R&R. You’re an adult right and don’t owe any explanation to anyone.
I’ve spent Christmas Eve with the Family then flown out on Christmas day. Best of both worlds. 🎄🏝️
There's nothing selfish with wanting to spend time for yourself without having to worry about other people. Don't feel guilty. You're entitled to your own time and what you wanna do with it. Just lay it to them gently that you're planning on unwinding and that holidays are a little too stressful for you.
You have to put in your life jacket first. Do what makes you happy
