Half the weeks on the client site we don't get to meet with the client in person. They usually dial in from down the hall. It boggles my mind. Such a waste of time and money

I traveled five to go from the primary client location to an alternate client location to have interviews over the phone with people in the primary location. And I couldn't fly my airline!

My team travels to client site to work for a client who works remote 48 weeks of the year. We also have a total of 1 hour of meetings with him a week and very little interaction outside our team. So useless.

She went on about how when I move out, I must take everything to not waste her space and how not to ask for money when I get a place. Funny thing is my parents raised me to not loan money out cuz it breaks relationships and the feeling of owing us just eh. This made me want to move out faster. She is going to up rent to $1500 too 😭
