Livid & need to vent. Had a call with a client, I am the attorney that manages their cases. A male attorney was on the call with me as well. I try to explain something to client multiple times and he keeps cutting me off to explain his question again (even though I am answering the question but for the interruptions). Male attorney jumps in and explains exactly same of what I am saying, male client listens intently, no interruptions, then essentially ignores me the rest of the call. Raaaaage 🤬

Hi! I joined TCS last year, and I am planning do Cloud Certifications. I need your esteemed answers for the following questions: Is it really necessary/worth to pursue cloud certifications at this stage? Which cloud service provider should I choose? Is TCS going to pay for all certifications? If such is the case, what is the procedure? P.S: I currently work as a Angular Developer in a Citi Bank Project, where I am not exposed to any cloud operations.

Any tips for navigating client office politics? I’m working on a process improvement project involving multiple teams and one team feels threatened that my client team is taking work from them (and that their jobs will be in jeopardy as a consequence), and they are slowing down progress which prevents me from doing my job. Client execs are aware but have their hands tied. What’s the best way around this?
