Expecting an offer from Microsoft federal consulting, but got a non specific answer about wlb (how often on client site) during the interview. Was told it was client dependent (they are hiring for multiple positions). Thoughts on how to get a clarification from the recruiter? Don't want to be on client site a lot.

COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up. How much pushback on morning meetings is reasonable? I know the project can’t operate totally around me but these start times aren’t sustainable...

I am in a phase of a project that is 12+ hour days - I know it’s only going to be for a month or so but balancing the smallest of other tasks is making me stress the f out. Family trying to group text all day long about holidays, friends wanting to buy flights for trips, figuring out groceries and personal errands, time with my husband. Im usually a list/planner person but even that is stressing me out. How do others handle these phases of work? I know it’s temporary but still 😵💫
Okay something kind of weird happened. Started a new project today with all new people. We met in person today and manager left for home after checkout around 5PM. Three Associates on my team were planning to get dinner, I said I was going to bail to go workout and eat at home. This girl screams at me in front of the whole floor “you are so fake!! you are not going to workout. you’re being fake.” I’m just standing there in shock like what? She’s like “what are you even going to do at the gym”…

Hi, I am hired as senior test engineer for automation testing profile in EY AND WIPRO The reason I am not selecting EY is just because I don't have any practical exposure working in automation testing and I am afraid that it's better to work in Wipro and get practical exposure and then try for big brands like EY. Also, in EY I will be asked to work in client location. Where I might get into difficult situation Anyone would like to comment on this? Is my decision of selecting wipro correct?
Received negative feedback from my manager for the first time, I’ve been working for a few months now and this is the first time it’s happened; over arching theme was quality of work and communications etc. feel really shitty about it and I’m not sure how to deal - any fellow female fishies have words of advice or anecdotal insights, did you manage to turn it around? I really want to do a good job and take this very seriously - def want to leave the project on good terms with the manager

How do you handle a step child who is 23yo (doesn’t live in your house) and is chooses to not get vaccinated when they give their too young to be vaccinated siblings covid? Currently quarantined with a 3yo who tested positive. Certain my 1yo will too. Can I help a person in this age group see the impact that their decision has on the people who can’t get vaccinated? As a step mom, what boundaries am I allowed to set to ensure that this doesn’t happen again? Ultimatum or is this “not my place”?
Joined D in August. For insurance I opted for a few addons amounting to 26K to be paid from my end. In my previous Organization, they would deduct these addon amounts in 4/8/12 equal instalments. In D they deducted the whole part in this months salary. Does D not have the option to deduct in instalments? The in hand salary was low and I can barely cover my fixed financial commitments and basic needs.

I’m about to start in PE and wish I could get more excited about the role, but can’t help but feel like being an associate is going to be the start of another improbable rat race to get to VP. Anyone with insight into what it’s actually like? Do more people choose to leave after their 2 years than I’m giving credit for, or do most people try to make it up the steep pyramid? For me this is a dream job...
Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.

B4 Director with industry & consulting experience: IT Strategy, Transformation, M&A (IT DD and PMI) looking for a exit. Any recommendations / referrals for recruiters focussed on executive hires. TIA
I feel like the Senior manager has to redo all (or a lot) of my work. I’ll suggest something, they’ll modify or reject it and then make a decision. Then I’ll execute on that decision and I didn’t have the best idea and it’ll be tweaked again or something comes up and the approach didn’t actually work based on th support. I’m an A2 up for promotion so I should be performing like a new senior, but I feel like it’s clear that I’m not close. For more context, it’s a first year audit so maybe that...
For those of you who spent a long time in big law (at least 10 years but more along the lines of 15+), when did you know it was time to do something else (maybe in the law, maybe not)? I don’t know if it’s wfh or just the work now, but I’m finding myself getting amazingly frustrated at things that barely bothered me before. I had an argument with opposing counsel last week and was seeing red for hours after that, and little things seem to bother me much much more than they would have before
