Has anyone transitioned from being client facing to fully remote software sales? If so, what were the major differences in day to day? I'm currently on site with customers 3 days a week focused around hardware sales but have an interesting opportunity for fully remote software at a higher pay.
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.
Hi fishbowlers! I’m beginning to feel like working at an rpo just isn’t for me, so starting to explore opportunities in house.

This question is specifically for the experienced folks. I have 1.8 YOE as a Full stack web dev( my age is 24) and have 2 offers. Same profile in both of the organization. Both are service based.
Comp A - Around 6k employees. Hiring for their product which is already built. Founded in (2003). 13 fix 1 var

Where will my growth be more?
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.
Shoutout to the kind lady at my client site who was kind enough to get me an empty office so that I could interview with a competitor's recruiter 😘
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?
Just moved to the DC area and my first project is on FedRAMP and ATO. How big of a market in terms of growth, job security, and compensation is federal compliance?

I was on bench for almost 4months after clearing the training. I was reskilling myself in MERN during that time. Now I have been put in a project where all I do is solve issues of the client's customers. This is not something which I prefer to do. I raised the issue but to no avail.
What should I do to pave my career path? I don't even have experience in relevant field for switch.
Pls help this junior.

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

Best functional but small and compact wallets? I currently have the Henri bendel card holder type one but it’s now bursting at the seams. I hate carrying a bag/purse so usually go out with wallet and keys in my jacket pocket during winter. If I have to take a bag it’s usually a small cross body/Fanny. So anything that can fit in there would be great!
