I was on the phone with a healthcare client and they said the “solution architect from BCG was working on pricing” for a database platform. What?! Is BCG trying to be an SI like a Cap or ACN?

I am a project/program manager type with strategy and implementations exp, mostly in healthcare. I am interviewing for a solution architect role on Monday. Does this even make sense? I have an MBA and PMP. The program manager role has been filled, but the recruiter insists I interview for a senior SA role. Should I pass? Don’t want to embarrass myself for lacking tech skills.

Question. I have an older friend who was newly contracted through an off brand firm who lost their contract for the NCS. They are offering him a transfer to the winner of the contract, but for a lesser salary (they said he's too expensive). They said he could also instead transfer to an independent contractor, for a 30-35% increase in salary, but no benefits or paid leave etc. Hourly salary, but much higher wage as a trade off. He's nearing retirement and doesn't care as much about benefits.

By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.
