Lesson learned: when in APAC do not ask your client to take you to their favorite restaurant. Wound up eating "turtle sex organ soup" and century eggs last night.

Dude - that's a life changer and absolutely incredible experience.

Man I love century eggs. Never tried turtle sex organ soup though. Did you know what you were having before you had it?

God I am legitimately jealous of your life right now #lifeswap?

I'll try anything twice. Love bizarre foods! Expand your taste buds and live it up!

OW1 - century egg I liked. I knew what I was having but had to play the game. The client wanted to show me his special spot and his favorite food. It was pretty gnarly. Wish we could post pictures on this app.

@OP Hahaha "gnarly" well kudos to you for stomaching it!

I started with Deloitte as SC in May, since then I was staffed on a project for a while. The project has ended now. I am on bench and my utilization is around 35%. I have been looking to get completely staffed since I have joined with no luck. My current status is, no billable project with utilization of 35% and September will be my 4th month with the company. How long do I have until Deloitte starts taking notice/action regarding low utilization.

Sometimes I feel like I am not working in an IT Company. The client for which I work for has a very old code base and the nature of my work especially revolves around L3 troubleshooting and unending POC, I feel like I am not exactly working in a Tech Company.

I think that if you work on technologies in a client that are relevant to the market and in demand (I am not asking for something bleeding edge) it is far easier for you to switch jobs, learn and grow in the career. Pls help me with this.

I’ve worked at my new job for 3 months & already feeling burned out and unmotivated for one client. I’ve had talks with my boss and the account manager about some improvements and such. But thinking about looking around? Thought? Too soon? Should I wait it out?

Something that severely gets into my nerves:
1 advise clients on tech and sometimes help them debug stuff.
This client told me they tested the solutions I gave and that it didn't work, and requested a meeting to sort it off. We schedule a meeting. I just inspected their account and they haven't tested shit, I can see the same code mistakes, they never tried to change anything.
I'm pissed. They're basically wasting my time and I don't even see the point in meeting with them.
Advice?
