Were your clients upset when you left? Long term project feels like resigning will be resigning from two companies. Especially after getting some very positive feedback from the client
Got an offer from EY India with 110% hike on my 6.9 CTC. But location is chennai because it's the client location as well and as per their director's communication with me it will be remote as of now and they can change the location later. Shall I trust them ? And how is work from home policy in EY India especially before pandemic? Shall I switch or stay back?

Does Deloitte monitor our browsing activity on our laptops? Like ESPN, Facebook, etc....? (I'm on client site fyi).
When I started a project at an independent agency, I was told the work load would be around 15 hours, or that was the max. The client loved what I gave them and didn't have any feedback, so my work is pretty much done but I think it took me more like 10 hours. Should I still charge for 15?
HOW do I stop caring so much about this job? I’ve been handed a non-billable project to manage and complete on an absolutely impossible timeline. I can’t stop thinking about how disappointed everyone will be when I can’t deliver and satisfy their ridiculous expectations. Maybe I’m having a bad day, but this is the closest I’ve been to quitting on the spot.
I want to switch role as an AWS developer. But I have just learnt the things on my own in AWS. In interview I am asked questions based on real scenarios on which I am not having any experience. Any suggestions? Even if I do hands on on services like Linux academy or quiklabs, it would not help. (AWS cloud migration experience one can get if worked on a real project). Please help.
Partner: you will work as an acting senior, but we do not grant you the rank of senior or a raise. Staff: what? How can you do this? It’s outrageous, unfair! Partner: take a seat, young auditor. Me: what about the client who ate all the cookies?

Received negative feedback from my manager for the first time, I’ve been working for a few months now and this is the first time it’s happened; over arching theme was quality of work and communications etc. feel really shitty about it and I’m not sure how to deal - any fellow female fishies have words of advice or anecdotal insights, did you manage to turn it around? I really want to do a good job and take this very seriously - def want to leave the project on good terms with the manager

Hi Fishes Have few questions about JPMC:- How is JPMC culture and job security? How much should one expect from JPMC for VP (Java) position in Hydrabad with 16+ YOE ?
I'm through to last round of an extremely cool job opp. Salary at best will be lateral but title bump and extremely cool set of responsibilities. However will only likely start in Jan due to needing to wait for bonus and security clearance check. Have baby coming end of may. Per my understanding this means I won't even get statutory pay? What should I do? Or should I just view this as missing 2 weeks of £150 (ie unpaid leave) and whatever paid paternity leave benefit org has (likely 2 weeks)

would you take a 1 year long contracting role (hourly with no benefits and no RSUs) if the hiring manager said they want to make this a FTE and know they need a team, but just need to make a business case with a contractor before going to the head honchos. very attracted to the company and the people ive interviewed so far

QUESTION -When you have a great passion project / bottom drawer idea that you keep bringing out and trying to bring back to life - ie you’ve had it in a couple of agencies - who owns it? It wasn’t for a brief, and it was worked on above and beyond the general hours of work. And it’s never been bought.
Which role do you think is more challenging/stressful: - Controller of mid-sized public company, or - Big 4 Audit Manager
I owe so much to this bowl! I'm finally putting in my 2 weeks notice and leaving for a whopping over 70% increase in TC!! Current TC: $87k (most likely would increase to $92k if I get bonus and promo next month) Offer TC: ~$150k+ ($110k base, $20k+ bonus, $20k rsu) YOE: 1 year Trust me, don't give up. I fell into severe depression ever since I started my consulting analyst career out of college, saw 5 therapists, gained 10 lbs, and broke relationships. I'd love to give back to you all here!
Hey all! How is your firm handling travel? Is it voluntary or they start shifting towards a “no choice” to decide model? Is there any incentive from the firms to start traveling? Financial, PTO?
