I don't understand why we switched from Skype? Why Zoom? I don't get it and will keep using Skype til it's wiped from my Outlook.

Zoom can do the same one-dial (phone number and meeting ID) from a phone

Don’t you mean thank you?

Yes, lol. I can’t edit it now 🤪

None of the above. I have people call my cell.

Anyone from IQVIA? I just wanted to check something. I gave 2 rounds of interview and got selected. The HR asked for the documents for further process, I submitted them in the second last week of May. I still don't have any update on it. I called them thrice, Then I dropped an email to HR asking for an update, and the worst part is the HR neither replied to my email and when I tried calling yesterday, the HR deducted call. 🤷‍♂️ What should I do? They didn't release my offer letter too! 💁‍♂️

For the past 2 years I’ve been scrambling for digital projects at Accenture and even took management and data projects (neither I was qualified to do, but the teams needed help) to avoid too much time on the bench and getting fired- I’ve been working for almost 4 yrs but I only just got a 20% raise to $85k. When I see people here talk about making way way more for less experience, I wonder if I’m being underpaid. And how would I start a negotiation for a raise or look for other opportunities??
