Opinion post: seriously dating a member of your clients company (I'm a low level analyst with absolutely no authority on the project). Is this a conflict of interest or is it slightly acceptable?
I'm going on spiti expedition this 16th with a travel agency. Anyone interested in joining me? The journey will start and end in Delhi(16-23 oct) and cost 14999. I'm currently solo, but they already have 7 confirmed bookings in a group with max capacity of 12. DM me if you're interested
Do you reply "thank you" when client sends you something you requested? I only do it if I know this is the last interaction I will have with this person for the day. But hmm..
Can I get in trouble if my senior manager wants to bring my significant other on a project that I’m already on? I won’t be her direct supervisor... figured it’s no different than dating a co worker.
How do you define "culture", both when talking about a client transformation and consulting companies?
Other than salary what are your favorite big law perks? Mine are:
(1) having a valet at work that will clean my car for $20; and
(2) getting to use the suite at sports games if not claimed for client development
31F. I have a good job, a cute little townhome, a dog that I love, strong family relationships (though long distance), a couple of close friends, and healthy retirement savings. I have traveled to all 7 continents and crossed off much of my bucket list. I recognize that I am very fortunate. At the same time, I’m starting to feel restless and I don’t know what to do or focus on next. Any ideas?
What's an affordable and attractive vacation (place) on the east coast that are still available right now?
New Associate here. I'm in the process of getting staffed on a project and the client wants to interview me first. What's the typical interview format?
Flying a 6 AM on United out of ORD tomorrow. What time should I aim to get to the airport? Have pre-check.
If you are on a project and being ignored by the management and the client, not getting invites, not getting involved in teamwork. Is it fair to think they want you gone?
What’s the best credit card out there?
Client asked us to help them creating a document on ‘how to brief agencies’, for their own marketing team. Are there any good resources or websites that covers a lot of information on this? Thank you!
First week on a project in the MET region and I’m seriously contemplating my life choices. 🙂 I don’t want to be THAT person but I feel the line needs to be drawn.
My mental health is absolute crap right now and I have no clue what to do. I could take time off, but one of my huge stressors is money and I don’t think I could handle the pay cut. What can I do? I already see a therapist twice a week, but I’m still feeling hopeless and honestly suicidal.
We have all had good projects, what have been some of the projects with no go live, project scrapped experiences? What was the reason, how did the client/project leadership handle it?
Want to plan a 2 day trip mid October with my gf. Thinking Miami, but also don’t wanna spend more than 300-400 over the two days we’re there (excluding flight costs and Airbnb) while still having some fun experiences. Is this a viable option?
I work with a small team. Whenever one of us takes off for vacation etc the other members of the team will do that persons work while they are gone. How do I not feel guilty about requesting time off or going on vacation when I know my team members will have to pick up my work/ daily tasks while I’m gone on top of their own work.
I don’t care about my project. I’m so done with my team and the client. What to do? Can’t roll off..

Help! Getting microblading for the first time, and I’m not sure how to tip (there’s nobody I know in real life to ask, and Google has mixed answers). I’m paying one total amount, but I have two appointments over a six week period. I definitely plan on tipping, but what is appropriate in this scenario? Do I tip half at one appointment and half at the other? 20% is $100. I’m struggling!

My 3yo son has COVID - he’s been sick for the last ten days. So we think he’s in the last leg of COVID. But his last test was positive (done on Friday) and we won’t send him to school tomorrow. My wife is also going back to work tomorrow after a few days off for COVID last week. So trying to figure out what the best case scenario is for tomorrow and maybe for Tuesday. Has anyone had similar experience where both of you had to work and the kid was sick? Can you please share any tips?
