I’m wondering if anyone is interested to consider / explore making a referral. I’m an associate (project manager) at Oliver Wyman in London on our private capital team (leading DDs). Previously worked at a PE fund and for a long time as a development economist in sub Saharan Africa. Degrees from UChicago and LBS. Based in London.
I mainly want to impress that I am not going to embarrass you as a referral.
Been a project manager for 4 years. Been at my current role for almost 2 years at an e-commerce company. Asked for a raise after absorbing my manager’s role and 2 more teams when she left a year ago. With this I also got left with a major project for the company and launched it successfully just recently. They want me to continue doing both jobs. I was making $73k and asked for $105k. What are people’s thoughts on this?
Why is it so goddamn hard to get a CI/CD pipeline set up? I’m on a project where they’ve chosen to manually handle all aspects of their deployment process. It can take up to a week for us to deploy. 🤯
Experienced folks!!! please guide -
I am working in Infosys from last 2.5 years in a support project for Oracle application. I want to up-skill but there is no proper structure. I came across CodingNinjas with a full stack developer program costing 1.25L and assured placements. Is this worth it to make the transition from support to product type role?
**If you believe i should not spend on the program, can you guide on which platform/tech provides structured way of learning?** Thank you.
Last 10 months I am working in L4 in AWS GCCI . It's a good team . But last 2+ months I do not have any project to work. Is it common for most of the teams ?? I am fearing that my performance will be impacted in the year-end for this , am I over thinking?? Amazon Amazon Web Services
My client wants both parties to list assets & liabilities as an exhibit to their prenup without values, but waive the right to know the actual valuation of those in the prenup itself. My initial thought is this is a terrible idea & would probably make the prenup easily voidable since a main requirement for a prenup is for both to understand the nature and value of the other’s assets. I will research in my jurisdiction to confirm, but has anyone ever heard of/done this? Thoughts?
Have had a Thursday evening outing planned with family for months and am starting a new project next week. Manager says I can't fly home early. Is it unreasonable to push back?
Are there any groups at Salesforce that value developers? I'm in Q Branch and it baffles me how solution engineers make $30-$40k (I make $99k) more than me when I've been developing on the Salesforce platform for 8 years. I get that they are client facing but if it wasn't for my team and me, they wouldn't land as many big deals. I could make $140k elsewhere for context
Can anybody help me to know the best package (in USD) for the post of project controller in Uae for person having 6 year of experience
When you have to tell the client in the most logical way and they get mad that they can't defy the logic...
I was up all night drafting a 9-10 page memo based on the latest version of the draft agreement the client had sent us. I was literally proofreading it when client sent me a new version of the agreement and I think I'll have so start over. Not sure how to feel. Yay hours / dead inside

How many of you are working remote? I really don’t see how this industry, especially in IT risk could go back to the office. I had minimal time prior to covid at client sites. Want to get a feeling around how many people here still remote and will be remote at least for the presumable future.

I have practiced law for several years and still struggle with the feast-or-famine nature of my practice. (Sudden rush of client outreach, many emergencies, then … nothing). A famine week might be 3-4 billable hours/day. My practice area does not have a predictable annual cycle, like “year end” or “tax day.” Any tips from other attorneys for how to recognize, predict, and/or even out these periods?

Can anyone recommend free or paid excel resources that are more general in nature? I need to up my skills but not in one specific area. Thanks!
Hi Fishes, Pls help,
YOE: 13 yrs
Cctc: 13 lpa
Have cleared HCL interview. Initially they offered 23 lpa (via proposed offer letter), but i requested to reconsider it for 25 lpa.
After 5 days, they sent final offer letter of 19 lpa (stating they can offer max 50% as per L4 approval).
1. Is this normal or rare case, reducing the offer amount from what quoted initially?
2. Should I accept or negotiate?
I don't have any other offer as of now.

I did not join Deloitte a few months back after getting an offer.
Will they blacklist me in their system for any other opportunities in future? (i.e. - is it possible in their system?)
Did not join because HR was so unresponsive during the discussion phase that I completely lost interest and joined elsewhere instead. Though I did email them 2 weeks in advance that due to so much of non-response, I am not interested anymore.

Ladies, I need help upgrading my wardrobe to match my new job. I used to work and live in a boutique hotel so my wardrobe was full of fun and dressy (sometimes slightly revealing) outfits. I never needed slacks or a proper blouse so I never bought any. Now that I’m working in a corporate setting and socializing with colleagues outside of work, so I’m looking for a good pair of pants that can be worn to happy hour or a park or to a casual dinner party. Help?

Anyone who goes to court relatively often wear braids? Honestly, I know it’s something I have to get over, but I am so worried that the partners wouldn’t like it or I would prejudice the clients because I’m pretty sure all the judges are racist or so wrapped up in respectability (read racist) they won’t hear my arguments for what they are.
Could really go for some senegalese twists rn.

Do any of you struggle with public speaking still later in your career? 6 YOE (<1 year in consulting) and I still feel like I suck and get too convoluted because I’m so anxious and nervous. My Apple Watch literally alerted me of a high heart rate (over 120 bpm) while sedentary during a client presentation. People say that it just takes practice and will come with time but I honestly worry I will struggle with this the rest of my career and it will prevent me from moving up.

This is gona sound dumb but whatever. I had a really awful year last year (divorce etc.), and I stopped praying as I blamed god/the universe for my crappy year. I recently started praying again feeling some sort of shift in my relationship with god, and wanted to visit the temple today as their website said they were open all day. I went there and it was closed. I felt really rejected and upset and can't seem to shake that.
I had a fertility assessment appt at Weill Cornell (I’m 36) and they did an ultrasound and blood check but the doc said they didn’t count my follicle counts on ultrasound and they’d do it prior to the start of my egg freezing process. I’m actually not sure yet if i want to do it yet and the reason I went to the doc is to see how’s my fertility right now. Isn’t follicle count check via ultrasound one of main fertility assessments along with AMH?

Ladies into jewelry, help please. Looking for a tennis necklace to go with an outfit I’m thinking of putting together for a holiday party coming up. Can’t afford the nice real diamonds but I’m seeing some options online for “graduated” diamonds, lab-grown, etc. in the $300-$500 range, which is doable for me. Any advice on what to go with or what to look for? Also, this would be my first time spending that type of money on jewelry - is it a risk trying to buy it online? TIA

Staffing a part time side project that counts towards utilization at my firm. Unfortunately due to small budget cuts had to tell some of the part time staff who were contributing a few hours a week to the project that we would need them to step back from the project. Sent them an email immediately and thanked them for their time, and told them would love to work together again in the future. Is this fine or do I need to also meet with them to reassure them in a case like this?

I’m like your husband. Strong dislike for social settings where I don’t know anyone, and also rarely want to engage with folks. Luckily my spouse is the opposite and more social. I’d like to think we balance each other out and there isn’t this pressure where I have to be “on” or super outgoing.
For me, I try to stick to the area nearest the bar because it’s the easiest place to strike up random/mindless banter. Or find one person to talk to throughout the night.
I guess the question to you is what are you trying to get out of your husband being more social? Proving to others how great he is? Showing off some skill he has? It feels like you’re trying to put him on a stage, and I would personally be super uncomfortable if my spouse forced me into that. If he’s as fascinating as you say, then it’s a loss to others not you or him.
Yes, he sounds... fine.
I think you should respond to those comments with exactly how you put it to us. No need for him to have to change. And you should be just as yourself with him by your side.
Plus how often is he attending work/client functions? I think this is more pick your battles situation.
Seems like I hold the unpopular opinion here but I think this is problematic. I know everyone wants to support being yourself but the reality is that these functions are not only important for OP’s working relationships but also something she cares about. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask him to be engaged for an hour or two on an important night.
OP - have you tried actively involving him in conversations with others? Maybe he just needs an opening, some people feel uncomfortable starting a new conversation topic. I would also try to introduce him to people he may have more in common with or that match his personality type. Don’t force him to talk to someone that will overwhelm him.
I tried talking to him once about it but he got offended when I mentioned it would be helpful if he practiced stepping outside his comfort zone. I cant emphasize enough that this isn't a make-or-break in our relationship, it's just a challenge we are facing that I'm not sure how, if it is at all possible, to approach. Is it one of those "it is what it is" situations or have other people experienced this and can recommend a way of handling it? My husband is a truly fascinating man and I feel like he has so much to share with people, but he reads as standoffish and people have commented on his quietness.
