I’m transitioning from employee to independent contractor. Anyone have recommendations for easy time keeping management and invoicing? I will only have one client to invoice. TIA!!
Anyone successfully negotiate compensation at firm that officially doesn’t allow for origination credit? Have brought in small clients in the past but this one is a big one and huge for the group and the firm. I’m not exactly doing this out of the goodness of my heart so would appreciate any advice on how to navigate the conversation. For reference, client specifically brought their work to my group so that they could work with me and it’s a personal contact of mine.
I have 8 yoe as a BA. It's been 2 months since I joined a Big4 as a Scrum master. I was asked to shadow the project manager but the person is just not helpful. I am not looped/forwarded any emails, no client introduction has been done, no tasks, no one contacts me all day long except for the one call in a day where I am the silent spectator. Am I in trouble?
What’s the worst reaction you have seen a client have to typos or syntactical errors in work product? Everyone loves to say “typos are all clients see”, “perfection is part of the job” etc. But have you actually experienced really negative client reactions based on typos? Honestly asking. I’m a 5th year and while I’ve definitely seen clients notice typos, the only time I ever saw one mad about it involved a startup founder who was predisposed to complain about everything for discounts

I’m up for promotion this month. I will be in charging jobs this busy season. What do you all use to stay organized? As a staff I was using just a regular planner.

Current TC is $110k. Been offered a role by an acquaintance in industry for $120k. Doesn’t make sense for me to jump given this minor increase in comp + lack of interest in new line of work.

Question. I have an older friend who was newly contracted through an off brand firm who lost their contract for the NCS. They are offering him a transfer to the winner of the contract, but for a lesser salary (they said he's too expensive). They said he could also instead transfer to an independent contractor, for a 30-35% increase in salary, but no benefits or paid leave etc. Hourly salary, but much higher wage as a trade off. He's nearing retirement and doesn't care as much about benefits.
I have an agency looking to hire me at a mid-level position, but I don’t know if I’m ready for that. Context (junior designer 1+ yr experience) Should I take the offer or stay with my current agency until a promotion? I’m currently bored in my role.
honest opinions ended! am recently engaged & could not be happier about it. The ring is stunning and I LOVE it, it’s exactly what I wanted, however, there’s an inclusion on the stone that’s a dark dot that is extremely noticeable to me. Even arms length away I can see it. I never cared about the grading of the stone or if there was inclusions, as long as they weren’t visible to the naked eye of an average person. Am I terrible if I ask to go back to the jewelers & try swap the stone?

How do people who exit consulting market themselves as experts in their next role? Specifically, one of my recruiters saw my experience more as a jack of all trades and a master of none, and said the lack of deep experience would limit me. For the record, I am tech consulting, with experience in a lot of cloud integrations. Encouragement would also help.
