When I first started I would explain to my clients exactly why I needed a PBC. Now I'm just like, "Give me the stuff so I can do the things."

I find it's often better to let my clients hate and fear me. Being nice and patient has gotten me nowhere with clients.

Depends. I'm an A2 and I'm used as the battering ram to get evidence, because my manager and director have to maintain the relationship with the client. It works, but it makes the job really toxic when everyone at the client has a tense and slightly negative relationship with you.

If I'm polite and they're doing their job so I can do mine then I'd rather not be an ass and be more just myself and be naturally likeable. But I'm not paid or evaluated on how nice I am, and often unless I'm an angry asshole to them they'll take it as a license to flake, not give us stuff, and put me in a position where I'm working harder to catch up and having to explain why things aren't done, so when it's headed that way and it's their fault, fuck them I'm going mean.

Hi there - <30 minority female founder of tech retail start-up preparing for series A round.

I’m trying so hard to break into iOS developer roles, and I’m landing quite a few interviews, but then when I get to the technical interview I feel like I bomb them 😭

I keep on having recruiters reach out to me for non developer roles and I don’t want to be in sales or doing ux designer roles due to the lack of job security in them…. Idk if it’s wrong but I’ve always thought that the more technical your skills are the higher job security you have, but idk how true that is?

I am in search of a Project Manager role. I have about 4 + years experience managing projects and in consulting.

I am about concluding the google certificate in project management, and one unique think I bring into any team is my strategic thinking and ability to solve problems in record time.

I anticipate your responses and recommendations thank you very much.

I just had my performance evaluation. I got a very positive review, and I’m standing to be promoted from senior to manager. I’m looking at a 6-10% pay increase. Does that seem fair? Given that my last percent increase was 5% with no title bump or promotion, a 10% increase (if I even get the high end of the 6-10% scale) seems like a low-ball offer, especially since there is no separate COLA adjustment. Are my expectations too high? If they aren't, how do I go about discussing with my manager/HR?

I am an acting senior and am training 3 new hires. They are not doing well, so I often re-do their works even after I give them 2 pages step by step instruction.

The A1s and I are all associates, so I don't even have a chance to give them an official feedback (snapshot at pwc). How to address this issue to my manager and director?
