A very small team (4 of us) at a client site. Majority of the clients seem to be over the age of 35. All of us are early to mid 20s. Tips on how to build rapport to more than just our POC?

People love it when you ask about their kids but don't assume they have them bc they're older

C1 has the best answer. I was in a similar situation (4 consultants with lots of clients). And their favorite thing to talk about is their kids

As one of the above 35 folks, don't try to act like you're older than you are. I hate 20 somethings talking about something being a long time ago. The 80s were a long time ago. 2002 was not. But otherwise, there are many things you'll have in common that are not age specific. Sports / travel / food.

Thanks guys - I just don't want to be that guy that we all say hi to, but never get to know each other!

GAAP question: On NYE, my client terminated their lease early with 2 years left on the lease term. For early termination they reached a settlement with the landlord for 6 months rent. It was a regular operating lease and they have not adopted 842 yet. Should this settlement be recorded to rent expense? Or is there some other special treatment like booking as a loss? All thoughts are welcome! I’m trying to do some research myself, figured at least one of you fishies might have some initial ideas

Are secondments for salary partners generally a nudge out the door? My spouse is a salary partner at an AmLaw200 firm. Her PG leader offered her a secondment with real responsibility at a newly regular client with a growing book of business. In a later conversation, she told the PG leader her goal is equity (not this year but eventually). The PG leader says she is on track but also that the group has recently made new equity partners and “everything could change tomorrow.” Is she being nudged?

What do you wish you knew when you were asking for your first raise? I’m well over half a year from that conversation but it’s on my mind. Me and my partner have sold a good deal of work but is that enough? Because there are times when I know I could have given more to a project, but I choose my mental health instead. This is so toxic but I feel like I’m not pulling enough all-nighters to earn a raise—like it’s some unspoken rule that my whole team is thinking but not voicing.

i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.

I might (MIGHT) soon be in the fortunate position of deciding between a $170k~ TC position at Adobe (Solutions Architect, a pre-sales role) and a T10-T15 MBA. Have interviewed with Haas, Ross, McCombs, Tuck, and Anderson for R2 and am also moving forward in the interview process with Abobe. Does anyone know if people are able to make the transition from an Adobe pre-sales role to Product Management? If so, I would consider skipping the MBA. Thoughts?
