I work for a small company in a role I kind of fell into (and I am lucky for that). My team is great, they have their issues like any team and the job is pretty flexible, but I really don’t like what I do and I don’t see a a future unless I want to grow in supply chain. I have a final interview at another company in a sales roll, not a dream job but the team is great (have a friend who used to be on this team) and it’s at a huge company with TONS of opportunities (continued in comments)

You all must have seen the recent news in which Infosys is the butt of many jokes for bungling the Income Tax portal roll-out.

However, the devil is in the details. The project awarded is worth 4000 Cr (540M) but the govt. has reportedly paid a meagre 150 Cr (20M) so far.

I’m managing a team member in my work stream who has been acting disrespectfully.

E.g. showing attitude/sarcasm, raising her voice at me despite me being her lead, blatantly refusing to take on work (me having to coax her into it).

I did set a time to speak to her. She actually did apologize and said she won’t do it again. But it’s happened again a few times, and just today.

At this rate, I’d like to roll her off and switch with another member. What is the best way to do that gracefully?

Tried to refer a friend. Just got an IM from a director asking me if I was sure I wanted to refer them. They'd heard he wasn't doing well when he went independent. And even before, when he was working for a competitor, he wasn't collaborative, criticized, and belittled his team, blamed them for failures even though he was their manager, etc. Two things: 1) What do I tell my friend? 2) It's terrifying that this industry is so small that this feedback crosses borders and competitors!
