Depends on what you did and context of the conversation. Learning the ways of a client takes time . However if the M was referring to a job duty like coding or analysis - that’s a concern

Depends on tone. "He/she is always learning (new and cool things)" vs "yeah he/she is still learning"

Ask your M directly.

Is there a good way to avoid signing up for new major responsibilities at current role if you’re actively job searching / interviewing? I feel like I’m close to an offer (in the next week) but my manager just added me as a sole resource to a new project. I feel like they’re counting on me and I would be screwing them over. Trying to balance being engaged at work while actively job searching. I like my team and don’t want to burn any bridges!

I am used to providing my client/PO with weekly status emails (CYA). However, this new client is telling me they’re not reading their emails and I should instead have weekly catch-ups with the BA? Will this impact my project review when the CAL goes to the PO for feedback/input? My goal with these emails was summarizing the tasks I have been doing over the week, so that the PO is aware of it.

Why won’t ethnic so called groups come together and be Human for the good of ALL? Study history and no one can play the slavery, discrimination, removal from homelands, genocide card! From the beginning every ethnic cultural group has suffered them all. I can tell you that having worked on a local and national project to bring these groups together it is the adults that reject unity in favor of their special interest. Not so true of our students who are more accepting.
