I am defending an eviction for a client who has given possession of the property (as of Nov. 30). Plaintiff’s complaint has one claim – possession. They did request relief for attorney’s fees. NJT/Final Hearing commenced 10/27, was only 30 min and was therefore continued to 12/20. Plaintiff had counsel at that time but they are no longer represented.  I want to file something notifying Court that Plaintiff claim is now moot, making sure that judgment is not entered that hurts (cont'd)..

I'm holding offers from Accenture and Wipro,

With A it is a generic opportunity where the work and the client would be decided after joining. But the learning opportunities would be more.

With W it was a client interview and the client is one of global leader in financial service and I really like to work with this client.

W's pay is 2-3L higher than A.

This is for Cybersecurity domain where A is comparatively better.

I'm looking to stay for long term, Please help me decide.

Looking for some advice. I had a phone screen for a job I really want on 6/23. I was told I would hear from hiring manager . I followed up with the recruiter one week after phone screen and he said hiring manager was on vacation the week after phone screen and the following week after that ( week of the fourth ) the company was off and said I probably wouldn’t hear from them until the this week. ( week of July 11th) I still haven’t heard anything . Should I send another follow up today ?

A new guy joined my team, we’re the same level. He became hyper competitive, told me he was more qualified, that I should give my work to him, and then finally stretched the scope of a project so that it included an analysis of my work and included inaccurate data to show how my work was ineffective. I escalated to our manager, and he’s now stopped, but I feel uncomfortable and honestly scared. Never experienced anything like this before and feel like I should leave. Would welcome any advice.
