Started a new contract as a contractor, my technical counterpart on the client side is lying about my contribution and bitching behind my back about my work ethic and abilities. What can I do ?

Cya 101. Everything happens in email. Conversations get recalled in emails, minutes get sent over email, recommendations and decisions get shared over email. Not much wiggle room for clowns when it’s all in writing

Sounds like you’re in a bad spot. Fix the relationship with the client counterpart, record everything in email to document, be honest with the client and your contributions without negatively talking about anyone else, gauge the reasons technical counterpart is doing this - are they on the way out or feel threatened?

What are you client follow-up policies? Support staff in office seems to be unmotivated and for example, in one matter, one month after being retained and a few days before a status conference, financial disclosures weren’t ready. In another, 35 days to respond to discovery. We tell client to have us stuff in 21 days to give us 2 weeks to organize. How many calls/emails to client 1 in 30 days? How much follow up with Client 2 if things are not in order?

Hello Fishes,
I'm working at CG from last 5 months for MBRDI project. I was thinking of switching my job as my current project will end by November this year. Not sure what project would i get into later so want to be prepared. I would like to know how much hike can i ask for considering its been only 5 months with CG and by the time i join a new company it would be 8 month due to 90 days notice period. My YOE is 11 years currently.

I feel it is not OK in the slightest. I feel the band hall should reflect the goals, discipline, and culture of the program. Not as an empty classroom.
