Band 7, 2 YOE here Stressed, overworked, and it seems like executive leadership keep changing the direction every week. Is there any hope for a long term career here or should I just volunteer for the next RA?

Nomen est omen?

No truer words spoken

“It’s not what you know but who you know”. This is the absolute truth. I spent years at IBM and have been unemployed for a few months now. Luckily I ran into an old college buddy of mine and we met for drinks. Long story short - he offered me a... —  read more
