Any stories of what happened AFTER you had to back out of some work because you were getting overwhelmed with what’s on your plate? I had to tell a partner I couldn’t help him with a training after initially agreeing because I was worn thin between two different deals. I’m fairly new to the firm so am a little concerned this is going to affect me reputationally, but figured it was better than blowing a client-related deadline. Fwiw he was nice about it and his training I think went fine.

Thinking about a career change from insurance defense to district attorney. It will be a SIGNIFICANT decrease in income for the first few yrs, but I can't think of any other "con." I don't like what I'm doing & think I'd like being a prosecutor. Pros for me include more trial experience/client contact, less hours & more time for a future family, no billing, no travel, loan forgiveness, and generally feeling like I'm actually helping people.
Has anyone done this? Thoughts?
I am planning to shift to Data Analyst/Data scientist role. Right now i work for a project where I'm a software eng & we have to maintain our application on C++ code. It is more like support/dev and unit testing combined. Coding is hardly involved and my hold on DS is weak so not sure if I'll be able to crack technical interviews for C++ dev or anything similar.
So is this a right decision to move from application dev role to Data Science/analyst field? Does software engineer gets paid more?
How companies are managing salary hikes?

Do CGI renegotiate?
Deloitte bought Monitor, PwC bought Booz, EY bought Parthenon... Will KPMG make an acquisition too?
In one of my side hustles, I'm the Communications Director with a campaign for Congress. Our primary is in 3 weeks, and we just found some insane dirt on the incumbent. Team is on board to leak to press — except for the candidate herself, because she wants to run a clean race. Meanwhile, incumbent is sabotaging us at every turn. Our team cohesion and trust in each other is more important than one story, but this would give us the boost we need to win, and it's frustrating kicking it to the curb.
Hi there night shift walon
This "collaborative work" thing is getting a bit out of hand. People want to collaborate so much, I can't get any real work done!
Found a job (entry level - 2 years) that I’m very interested in at Google. I have no connections (real life or virtual) that work there. How can I improve my chances? Would someone here be able to provide a referral, or how could I go about finding an appropriate contact on LinkedIn?
How open/honest are you when talking about your company with others?
Truth be told, I’m fairly straight forward with my feelings about my team/company/role. I don’t trash them, but I don’t make it out to be better than it really is nor do I sugar-coat anything as if I’m trying to sell them on something. Granted I work in a big corporate setting and I’m relatively new in the workforce so perhaps it resonates differently from me than someone with more experience.
My friends on the other hand...
