Hi Folks, What's reviews of Publicis Sapient. Like work culture and if there is hiring firing culture I am from ETL background and knowledge of Hive and basic spark and I will be working on cloud(attended training only, consider near to no knowledge) and spark development. Will you suggest me to join there? Technology stack may be good for me but it will be new & challenging for me. I am scared to join there because of job security and work life balance can be dying ( I can stretch not daily?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

I have received an offer from Deloitte for ‘Project Delivery Senior Anlyst’ position on some technology preferred provider program.

Help me ask for a raise in my upcoming performance review? In sum, my company’s HQ is in Texas and I feel I’m being paid a Texas wage when I live in Los Angeles (the role is remote). We do have a San Francisco office and I want to ask my boss to match me what staff are making there. As that’s more comparable. Based off of Glassdoor, my salary matches Texas’s exactly and SF has the same role at 10k more. Should I show him the Glassdoor page? Don’t want to come off too strong. Please advise

Feeling lost in my 20s - wondering if anyone else feels similarly. I have a great job, boyfriend, friends, etc, but I feel like I am consistently bored in my career after a year at any job passes. I have gone thru multiple job changes which have kept me satisfied for a time, but as soon as I learn my duties, I am terribly bored and struggle to get through the weeks, everything feels monotonous and honestly like a waste of time. Anyone else? Does this mean I’m choosing the wrong jobs?
