Sent an email to my network looking for a few points of research to round out a simple deck and am now being hounded by a team trying to sell their services to my client who doesn't need it. #sharks
What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
How do I get over a horrible interview where the interviewer was condescending and rude? Feel like my confidence is totally shot
Interviewing for a role at Deloitte Strategy & Ops Business Insights UK. Got a 4 hour long round 2 (video interview) with case study, presentation type rounds. What type of cases can I expect ?
I just started a new job a couple of months ago and it’s not a great fit. The health of the business wasn’t what they had led me to believe during interviews. I’m looking for new opps but how...
Does it really hurt if you are applying for a job after quitting? I know it’s much easier to find opportunities outside while you are in your current role but wanted to know your experience!
Is this accurate: Final interviews are mostly about the personality and culture fit test more than technical skills test?
Anyone have experience starting a new job for a week then leaving because you got a better offer (as in, was interviewing with both places at the same time, but one moved slower). Any huge red flags or issues?

I recently took control on a company project, and my workload has gone way up from before. I used to spend all of my free time with my partner, and they're growing annoyed at how often I have to work late. Any suggestions?
Hello EY 🐠! Anyone kind enough to share what kind of questions you were asked by the interviewer when at interview? Specially for core tax, manager position. Wonder if it’s gonna be behavior question, technical, or mostly casual talk, etc? TIA.
Got locked outside of client site because my contractor badge won't let me in past a certain time... Screw it time to go home, but wait... My laptop is still inside... 🙄
TFW you are just killing it in your job client loves you, partner loves you, team is great, location is great ....but your long term SO says "we need to talk when you get home"...
Monthly Retainer: has anyone ever converted themselves from project fee to a retainer for a client? pros.. cons? I want to make sure it’s a win-win situation. When should I bring it up? I think Im being phased out due to high project fees.. so a retainer seems like the right move.
Quit my old firm, started my new one 4 weeks ago. On a understaffed first project acting as senior /manager with a difficult client. Thinking about quitting to go back to my old firm. Thoughts? Left on good terms/open door with my team offering a counter offer previously.
First year in consulting- Close to chargeability target but might receive a below average rating due to most recent project. Is this enough to let someone go based on your experience?
I don’t have a tribe, but I’d like to have one. This lifestyle, pre-Covid anyway did a number on my social life. Maybe I watch too much tv but how are people finding their girlfriends? 😭 for reference I’m 26!
Hi fishes, can somebody help me with the difference between getting hired for a practice vs function (eg CPG vs Mark & sales) McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company across - 1. Entry level training 2. Travel opportunities 3. Time to partner 4. Networking opportunities
Sometimes people don't really understand the interviewer expectation and fail at interviews not because of their subject knowledge but their lack of demonstration skills ☝ What 🐟 🐠 🎣 🐡 Fishes think on it🙂

Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
Can anyone please let me know what will be the take home/in hand salary for 20L Fixed per annum. Thank you.
Do you always log on to Skype? I hardly ever do, only for calls. should I be logging in?
Why is there an overlap / inverse correlation between salary and designation? For example there are senior consultants making a lot more than managers, and managers making a lot more than SM.
Gotta love those moments when you spend hours on a last minute client request with an impossible deadline only to get feedback that completely devalues all the work you did
Have you noticed (either in school or in person) that social-distancing and cleaning standards are becoming more lax?
I am so grateful to have a job right now but I am really struggling. I’ve been at D for a little under a year and have been really unhappy with my experience. In particular, my current project and my direct supervisor make me feel unbelievably incompetent and under appreciated. Given COVID, there is little flexibility to roll off. I’ve tried to stick it through but I’m at a breaking point. Any suggestions on how to make the best of it? Or next steps?
Is it worth throwing my hat in the ring to be an ABM with 1.5 year agency experience and no MBA? Really want to try something new while I’m moldable, and be compensated properly for my drive and abilities.
Can (should?) I name my clients in an (industry) job interview when I talk about my past experience?

Any other Deloitte folks get screwed in their year end rating because of low utilization since there were so few projects to be had earlier this year? Manager openly said it was "beyond my control".
