What would you do if you found out an executive was speaking poorly about you and your work performance to other employees? Is this a case where you would get HR involved? Have a conversation with the individual? Let it go? The comments are confirmed to have happened at an event that the offended party was planning/running, and the exec said negative comments to two other people at the company about the event and their work, and also said the person looked “too stressed.”

Interesting, I don't think I could let it go to be honest. Especially since it's an executive, that's poor leadership. What's your relationship like with them?

Relationship is not great... They work together occasionally and the sense is the executive comes off fake nice in interactions.

Is this executive my manager or on management team that I report to?

If so, I'd request a transfer ASAP.

Thanks for explaining.

I'd avoid the executive and move on. Nbd if it's an isolated incident.

(I'd also examine my surroundings and ask myself if I really want to be there. Am I happy, do I fit in?)


Is this the first time this has happened?

Not sure if it’s the first time or just the first time they’ve found out about it.

I would def get HR involved. That sounds like a really sticky situation. I am so sorry to hear you are going through that.

Our company went through an exercise of redefining product roles - from business analyst, product owner, product manager to assoc pm, pm, senior pm etc. The concept is everyone with same skills - with different competency levels.

Note: I am not overly ambitious, but do want to have a good salary for my retirement savings😉

I'm looking to find a job like the Forward Deployed Engineer role Palantir Technologies in the UK.

I have become hooked on finding a job that involves solving the kinds of problems they presented during their interviews. Although I got to the final round my performance anxiety got the better of me (I think I wanted the job a bit too much...). I will reapply after working in a similar company.

Is it "deep tech" / "data science" or "smart enterprise" that they're doing? Any advice welcome.

Before Covid my husband and I kissed good bye at the door and went off to our respective positions and we came home and we recapped our day. My husband is a principal by the way. Now I hear every phone call, feel every stress, listen to the tension in his voice during calls, and see the fluctuations in his mood throughout the day. It’s like I’m not only only absorbing the stress of my own job but the stickiness of his stress feels like it’s latching on to me. I can’t avoid it.

Hi fishes,

Today I got an email from TCS to complete an ibegin registration. Whenever I login, it is asking me to enter PAN details and mail ID. If I give, it is giving a warning that my account is already present in ibegin and telling me to login with another email ID. As if I remember, one of the consultancy, used my PAN to register in ibegin but I’m unable to login since it is registered by their mail ID and my PAN.

I outperform all sr members on the team, take on mentorship for other jr members, participate in x-functional projects. My manager says I am doing great, but doesn’t want to help with my growth. I feel a bit under paid for the amount of impact I’ve brought to the team and larger org. Is it fair to escalate above manager?
