Hi everyone. A PDM specialist here. Joined Deloitte 5+ years back as ‘Senior Solution Engineer -On-site’.Later in June 2017 all these ‘on-site’ folks got rebranded as PDM. Slowly started to realize how PDM is getting sidelined as a ‘discountable’ group. Sometimes I feel contract jobs are better than being at PDM , but obviously tied up with D for visa related issues.No career progression so far and don’t see any positive changes in the near future as well.I think it’s high time to call it a day.

A partner gave me 8 minutes to edit a document and I forgot one bracket and I can’t stop thinking about it. I also told her it was missing so that she could fix it but she had already sent it to the client by that point, so now she also knows I screwed up. Is this as big of a deal as it feels?
