Putting together a Christmas party/ client appreciation event. We’ve traditionally done it on a Thursday night. Thinking of doing Saturday open house style 3-7. Thoughts?

I find that Fridays work best


Wells, it’s an open house style in our office building not my home. I’m thinking maybe Saturday is not the way to go. Maybe we should stick with a week night.


Depends on age

Will compliance allow you to have it at your house ?

I think weekday late afternoon and early evenings work best.

I always do Saturdays and it works great. 1-4pm is when we do ours.

We have had them on Saturday’s and on Tuesdays. On Saturday many people have company or other parties to go to. They also have shopping or family obligations...had a very mediocre turnout. We have had great success holding out open house on Tuesdays

Remember when Christmas parties didn’t offend people? Bottoms up!

Any update on work from office for Cognizant?

Thanks in advance!


Trying to figure out what do I do if I want a new coach. Not trying to make a long post so I'll keep it short. My coach hasn't been very participative in my career and actually hindered me when we were on a project together. Even after leaving the project I tried to keep up the relationship but she just wasn't attentive during our checkins and seemed really uninterested. I know I can get a new coach but if I submit the form on Dnet is it automatic or do I have to find someone to fill the roll?


I’d love to know what the best places are to vacation. Looking at any all inclusive resorts, hoping to finally relax after 2 years no break.


Had what I thought was a final round interview last Friday with one of the company’s VPs (had 3 rounds incl. one in-person round prior to that), and haven’t heard anything yet. Should I follow up?


For any new joiners, do you feel like you have a support system at work? Feel like I don’t necessarily have those mentors or network that everyone talks about

Hi im a 2018 MBA grad (M7) and missed the on campus hire recruitment for visa reasons. I worked in consulting in financial services for ~1 year and now interviewing for Deloitte <cont.>


Get brought in for a month of dev work on a project that's been running for 3 months.

Me: Are we just doing a PoC? This seems like a *really* short timeline for getting the remaining dev work and all of the testing and release coordination for project wrap

SM: Testing? Release? What are those?

Me: What?

Client: What?

SM:.... What?
