Does anyone have advice on how to deal with a Type A Boss? My manager tends to steamroll a lot of my work and completely change the narrative in my team’s plans/performance decks. Most recently a deck was changed at the 11th hour that went against the original POV leaving my team unprepared to discuss with the client since it wasn’t our story. I intend to bring this up on our next 1:1 but I’m struggling how to express my frustration confidently and request change.

Countless rounds of revisions on the sizzle reel from hell, and every time, the client would ask us to ”fix the volume of the music, it’s still too loud.”

There was no V/O. Only audio was the music track. It’s really hard to say “maybe you could turn down the volume on your laptop” without coming across as condescending.

I just had a meeting with my direct supervisor, and a coworker(Client-facing Financial Planner I support) where my supervisor began the meeting talking about my next steps for promotion, and then transitioned to a Performance Improvement Plan(PIP). The document included the phrasing “failure to meet these standards will result in further disciplinary action,” but they said it was not a disciplinary action. Am I off-base in thinking PIPs are primarily used as a last step before termination?

Hi folks,

Is there any news when birlasoft will be asking employees to come office? Birlasoft pune.
I am about to join birlasoft in next week. Kindly help me with this information. Birlasoft

For a project, I would like to program something with a back end and a front end. It should be easy and focused especially on analytics. This is what I wish the tool would do:
- import excel/csv configuration table
- calculation & analytics (sas/r/python style)
- export csv
- allow for visuals (bar charts etc.)
- it should work on/ offline and should be able to be executable without having specific software installed

I was thinking R shiny style. Do you have suggestions/ ideas where to start?
