My boss doesn’t seem to be happy with my work. I am strong on strategy and brand, when I ask related questions at kickoffs, they make comments like:”nobody cares.” Or “We just need to get it done.” Or “The client doesn’t know what is a brand.”

The ink is barely dry on the latest IPCC report and a client rocks up asking about environmental liability for knowing delivery of low quality (read: high pollution) coal because that’s an extra $0.77/ton profit on a 170,000 ton shipment. They’re already making $22/ton because the market is crazy.
Staffing several associates from different practice areas together to do a lot of different things on what was a very small case to begin with is so cool!
The client feels we understand their business, our associates ramp up their hours, and our firm boosts its revenue! Corporate clients, after all, usually pay up without asking questions.
Remember: You can turn even the smallest case into a multi-million case.

For IT/cyber security services entrepreneurs, how were you able to obtain your first client? Looking for details on what actually worked for you, not a generic list of things like looking at RFP, SEO, marketing…etc. For example: if you used a service to market your company, what service did you use? Thanks!
I was on the media side for a client who wasn’t known for “performance” and wanted to have a campaign (really a TV/OLV) that conveyed that for US market. It went on for 18 months (cond)

Hi everyone, its my first time posting here but thought I'd ask for some advice on this.
am a beginner UXer with a design education background. I just got a job as UI Designer. I am super anxious. I am good at research to wireframing. But UI, never done it before... high fid, design systems etc are all so new to me. This is making me so insecure getting into the new job what if I make a fool of myself? What if I ruin projects and real client work? Should be excited but can't stop overthinking.
I’ve seen a lot of posts about companies letting project managers go in big numbers. Just a coincidence or are PMs first to go in an economic downturn? What positions are the most job secure in Tech?
Rolling off before h1b stamping in October. Would that be a problem of I say that I'm not on any project?
I’m rolling off a project soon to start a rotation in a different BU and will have all my assigned tasks completed by the roll off date. The SM is pressuring me to remain available after I roll off to help the team in the event they have questions. Normally I wouldn’t mind but these questions that he insists I remain available for are ones that others on the team should be able to easily answer. I’ve been experiencing a lot of anxiety over this. Is there a way to tactfully decline this request?
Hi folks. I am working for Wipro as a Network Administrator for a product based client. My current CTC is 10 lpa fixed with YOE 7 years. Am I underpaid? How much can I expect? I am good at Cisco and Fortigate with experience in security also.
Anyone on an “agile SAP” project? Are folks really using the agile SAP piece or is that just a way to use the word sprint in front of the client?skeptical and would like some add’l unscientific data.
Got poached by client to work for them. What are the things I should be careful for conversations like this.

Alright ladies. The Wing. Is it worth it? It’s incredibly expensive, which leaves a weird taste in my mouth. I am privledged enough to be able to afford it, but it would definitely be an investment.
If you look at VTI or VTSAX, the distribution across sectors is not the same. It’s representative of the US economy. Tech is overly weighed and Utility is less so. Wouldn’t it make sense to allocate..
Considering a move from EY Tax to BDO tax. Can anyone comment about WLB at BDO and provide any other general thoughts? Would also be great to hear from people who have made the same move.

Is it frowned upon for a man not to think of himself last after his loved ones, friends, work, etc? I'm noticing I think of myself first and while considerate of others, my free time is mine, not spent taking care of others, but this reservation strains everything else.

Or she should search for jobs after reaching there?

I start a new job as ACD Mon. Never come into an agency as anyone’s manager or even been ACD. I feel very capable in my role and being as confident as I can. But so nervous to “run a team”. Advice?
hey folks, does anyone have advice on how to leave a company that you just joined? I’ve been at my company for barely two months before getting an amazing offer that I just can’t turn down. How do I leave? Should I leave before or after the holidays? My team/boss are SO nice, and I’d hate to burn a bridge. 😔

For those of you that travel a lot. Do you have a good travel toiletries bag? What about makeup bag? Any good travel product recos? I travel quite a bit and inevitably I always forget something.

How many women out there feel that women in more powerful positions than you, treat you unfairly, don't have your back, or assume the worst of you, instead of talking to you directly, asking a few questions that could quickly sort something out? How many of you prefer a male boss over a female boss?

Seriously considering quitting my job without another prospect. My mental health is suffering and I have no work/life balance. I do have savings but I’m absolutely terrified of it potentially taking a few months to find something new. Would love to know how others handled this?
I've had an ear infection this week MD got on some antibiotics 2 days ago. It's still pretty painful unless I'm laying on a heating pad. I worked from home yesterday but I'm worried about asking to work from home because my entire company is in office. I'm also pretty new... what should I do? Go to work and be uncomfortable/in pain or risk being seen as lazy for asking to work from home again?
Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
I just became manager to 2 people on my team. But no promotion, title change, or salary bump. They said I need to prove myself and it will be factored in during annual reviews. Is that typical or BS?

I just did a interview at a small tech company. It was my first interview with the company. Just me and a VP.
Starts with Q’s about my experience. Then he starts asking me to solve riddles. I asked a couple of questions and he seemed to get annoyed and was being condescending bc I wasn’t solving fast enough. He asks another riddle. I ask if there are more questions like this. If so, I’m gonna stop you. You seem to be talking down to me. I left the call. He clearly doesn’t think women are smart
