Around the time “Fargo” came out.

“Oh, ya. You betcha.”


I am.from WI--half.my family says it that way

Those are two different words.


Ok boomer


I blame it on the Kardashians. I blame it all on the Kardashians.

The same time they started spelling “bye” as “bai”.

When their thumbs got tired of typing four letters.

I change it depending on who I'm talking to and how I'm saying it. I'm also a fan of "yuh" 😂

I have an offer from IBM ISL, Bangalore for Band 7A. (70% hike, 4 YOE, DevOps Developer)

I currently work at Amdocs. After IBMs offer, Amdocs too matched the offer.

I am inclined to stay in Amdocs due to the overall perks, job stability and location (Pune)

So I conveyed the rejection to IBM, the HR is now saying that they will revise the offer to 100%

Que: Is IBM ISL worth joining ? how's the average hike, job stability, work model going ahead ? Please provide your insights.


As I'm moving to a new role in a small company, I have a doubt about my salary structure like the Basic salary part is only 20,000 while my take home is 62k after all deductions.

I'm concerned because the leave encashment & other things totally depends on the basic salary.

Are there not any rules for the Basic salary to be at a certain % of CTC or it depends totally on the company?

Also PF deductions they are offering only 1800 p.m but considering 20000 basic it should be 12% of 20000 right?

Thoughts on the Chicago Portfolio School for a copywriter?

Is full-time freelance the only way big agencies hire outsourced talent? I've been approached by some decently big agencies who like my work, but will only bring me in if I commit to 40 hours/week. I have a handful of clients and can't exactly shut myself off from all opportunities because big agencies "need you available from 9am-6pm every day." Is this the only way to get in with well-known agencies? Do any allow for flat rate projects?

I’m working with an art director who is unable to like ideas from someone else. She never said one nice word on my ideas (on the contrary) while both the ECD and the CCO consistently love them. This happened on multiple briefs.

There’s just never a positive reaction when I tell an idea. I’ve been telling myself it’s probably a communication thing but it’s really weighing on me to work in such a negative environment.

Should I move on?
