This is my first experience working for a large agency, and honestly I’m starting to get really weighed down by the “we’re in client services just do what the client asks” mantra. We have a horrible client-agency relationship, and our client is insanely demanding.

My confidence is very low today. I have a few difficult clients who have been disrupting meetings by trying to push current state and I’m trying to come in with different angles because I need to change quite a bit. One of the males who talks at me sent an email asking if I would like overview lessons of how this client works and that just made me feel like shit. I’m the only female on the team and when I ask my SM for help he says “this is your job” and I just need some uplifting. 😑
Anyone interviewed with Visa before? I have a video interview scheduled for this week for their client consulting analyst role and would appreciate any tips/advice. This is my first interview since 4 years ago
Theee weeks until I roll off my first project. Any tips on getting the next project or anything in general? Haven’t had a snapshot or performance review yet so that’s on the list of things to do, but any tips in general are appreciated.
Has anyone transitioned internally from a client-facing role? How was the process? The hours don't bother me, but weekly travel disrupts a lot of community work I'm involved with.
How many of you are still client facing/traveling vs in an internal role? Experiences? I switched a few years ago for better work/life balance. Curious since I’ve seen a few similar comments on here

Best Sydney CBD hotel with gym?
Do you forget what the client tells you? I feel like I'm forgetting stuff a lot of times and the client gets frustrated if I ask again. What do you do to retain all of the information they tell you?
Cross posting this from consulting bowl: If anyone of my former KPMG advisory colleagues impacted by the RIF today have audit readiness or fed FM experience please feel free to DM me. I made a jump to a smaller firm (~100 people) earlier this and have a direct need on my team. Client is a cabinet level agency. Looking for associate and senior associate levels.

Assuming I case prep like crazy, how realistic is it I get an interview in an office like London, Berlin, Amsterdam?
