the client is being uncooperative and it is stressing me out. just needed to get that off my chest lol
Think I messed up.. I was supposed to email the partner asking what is going on with one project team lead, I emailed the project team lead asking what went wrong… anything to do about this
To what extent can we talk about our clients we served on when speaking with recruiters vs hiring managers of the actual company? (Name of the client, nature of work, etc)
Do any fish out there have excoriation disorder (chronic skin-picking)? I acquired this really bad habit while WFH and am starting to fear that I will not be able to kick it before going back on-site. My finger tips are always bleeding to some degree or missing skin lol. Might freak the client out. Would appreciate advice if anyone has kicked this habit.
Hi Fishes I joined EY GDS this month but not liking the work in the assigned project. It is not as per my expectations and not suitable as a developer. I have another offer from Bristlecone. Any suggestions? Should I continue working with EY GDS to have a brand name or switch to Bristlecone company (high probability of good project) Thanks in advance!
Honest question here-hw do I work better with Indians who come over frm India(on-site) to client?My patience with them is at an all time low since they jst dnt gt the methodology & hate owning anythng
Client on video shoot after nitpicking every fucking word of my copy: You know, maybe I’ll go into creative. It looks like fun!
Got offer from Accenture.For me they assigned B. U. as IDC and project name is AQ Connected Vehicle Multi-Ye GDN. Building name is mentioned as :- 999999/Pune. Anyone knows about the project? How is the project? Location will be Hinjewadi for this project?
Had a client asking about blooom.com. I have read some about the company but would appreciate feedback...does a program like this help keep 401k balanced which is outside my advice or promote the DIY investor?
What if the client decided to go ahead with other firm for a potential multimillion dollar opportunity? The team worked hard to get the the deliverables and it looked they will get it but dint happen
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.
Some day I hope to be a lead account PPED. And I will be the type of PPED who doesn’t want to “review everything before it goes to the client”
Anyone deal w/ having too many cooks in the kitchen? I get tired of so many rounds of feedback & people having differing opinions. How to keep your head up when it happens on almost every project? 😅
when you're on a local project but hours are so bad you leave before the grocery store/drycleaners open and come home after they close.
What's the worst attempt you've seen to motivate staff? My previous firm brought in a massage therapist to the office for an afternoon during busy season. Then they told the auditors (who were all out at client sites) that they needed to drive into the downtown office, pay for parking, and that none of this time would be billable, so we'd need to work late
How do you (politely) tell your clients that they invite you to too many meetings everyday? I’m in 6+ hours of client meetings every single day. I feel like I work for them (I’m agency side for a reason) and it’s challenging to have relationships with my internal team because I’m never around! Not to mention my actual work suffers.
New project using SQL and need to get caught up to speed on the basics quick. Used it a tad In college but that’s over 5 years ago. Project starts in 3 weeks any good courses you all recommend?
When I started a project at an independent agency, I was told the work load would be around 15 hours, or that was the max. The client loved what I gave them and didn't have any feedback, so my work is pretty much done but I think it took me more like 10 hours. Should I still charge for 15?
Need suggestions: my current investments are FXAIX, VOO, SPAXX and FSEAX distributed among rollover, IRA and brokerage account. What should I consider for 401K?
Hi! I found a Salesforce position in corporate development that I think I'm an excellent fit for! Is it best to apply through a referral? Also, since the position is remote, does it matter if it's based in one state and I'm in another? I've been hearing great things about Salesforce and am very excited about this opportunity. Any advice is greatly appreciated! I seriously think this is my dream job :)
Just got an offer for a Sr. AWS DevOps role at 145K, I will be working remotely 100% with maybe 5% travel, if any. No bonus with this company. I have over 8 years of DevOps and AWS, all AWS certs . Should I be asking for more $? Thoughts on the offer and how much more $ I should be asking for ? Current location is kinda irrelevant since I will be working remotely.
I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?
I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?
Hi fishes, I have applied for BA position in multiple companies but most of the calls I get say that they are looking for immediate joining (or 1 month). My company has 3mo notice period. Should i resign first and then give interviews or wait for offer letter before resigning? This 3mo notice period is really a problem. Thanks in advance

Does anyone live in San Diego? What areas in/near downtown are safe and don't require a car? I'll be interning there for a few months
Thinking about going back to school(MBA) after 3 years of Big 4 experience. Worth or nah?
What kind of roles does “business analyst” open you up to? I have 5 YOE, 3 in audit and 2 in analytics/cloud enablement consulting. Found a role for business analyst at FAANG that sounds like it would make good use of my cumulative experience but not sure if these are typically dead end roles or not.
25. At MBB. Thought I wanted PE but I’m thinking FAANG PM type role might be better now. Ultimately I’d like to start my own business. Where are people who join PE 4-5 years down the line vs those who join FAANG?
WLB at MBB (including during COVID)? Thinking about moving over from Big 4 (at Manager or Associate level), but also don’t want to grind like I did in my 20s …since I’m thinking about becoming a new father in the next 2 yrs
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
