First time meeting new clients. Showed up to their office, and they "accidentally" scheduled us in the same room, at the same time, with the same people, as the outgoing agency. They then were dicks to them in front of us.

What does a culture of ownership mean to you and your company?

The startup I work at, as with many others, espouses a culture of ownership. However, after spending a few months here, it seems their form of "ownership" is less about taking control and accountability of one's domain, and more about the willingness to take on tasks that are completely irrelevant to one's objectives and without clear impact.

Looking for some perspective here so I can calibrate my own expectations.

Hi Fishes,

My sibling (from India) applied for Canadian Visa for study permit (2 years) and it was rejected stating the reason "the IRCC agent was not satisfied that the applicant would leave Canada at the end of their stay.
The intake was in Jan 2023.

Should we apply again? Has anyone ever experienced this and would appreciate if they can guide me? I'm really worried and emotionally tormented. Need urgent help.
