Question on appropriate workplace behavior:
During a zoom preliminary injunction hearing, our client began “word-vomiting” on cross examination. My partner, who was probably aiming for our client, then kicked me under the table. I’m young and went straight to law school after undergrad, so I don’t know if this is inappropriate or not a big deal. Is this a red flag for my current firm? Thanks for your thoughts.

Hello :) Just a quick doubt . Anyone attended expedia client interview in EPAM systems. Any lead please help.

I’m an assistant for a firm I really like working with. But sometimes my boss does this thing where he tells me some information to complete a task for a client, I write down verbatim what he says and complete the task. Then when I confirm the task before sending it to the client, some of the very stuff he told me to say or do is suddenly incorrect. So he’ll tell me as such and then begin to give me a mini-lecture on why that information is wrong. The first few times he did this I was sure I…

A colleague/friend asked me for some freelance help editing a web page she was writing for a client. She’s always gotten me gigs, but this was a little different (collaborating v solo). Still I spent a good five hours revising, coming up with suggestions and helping her rewrite and in the end…no mention of rate/invoice/nada. How do I broach this delicately, knowing she’s a friend, but also knowing I don’t work free? And without sabotaging more (paid) work down the line?

I have joined deloitte last year as ETL consultant and I want to change the project now as my work timings are 2pm-11pm and once office reopens, there is no chance of wfh in the project. I want to shift to a 11-8 work timings project as I am newly married.

Hi Fishes,

I appeared for the PDM on 26th May but still haven't received an offer from IBM. When I talk to HR she says background verification is completed but some sort of approval is required from client. When I ask about expected date then she says it is handled by other team and can't comment. Does this mean I will not get the offer?

Transitioned from my first job (in-house at large tech company) to a boutique firm where "quality" is king. Problem is, every partner/client has their own idea of what "quality" is.

Feeling like I'm starting over brand new, and the stress is really getting to me. Everyone at my old job told me I was at the top quality-wise, but the partners at the firm all tell me it's going to be 2 years before I'm really confident/comfortable. I'm a 6th year. Is this normal? Having bad imposter syndrome.
