Gearing up to burn the rest of my paternity leave (11 weeks). SM on my project thinks that’s too long to take since there’s a lot of work in our pipeline and I should consider only using half of it...
Raise and bonus were a huge disappointment and just had a PPMD lie to my face about a project. 10 years with Deloitte and great reviews, but it’s time to move on. Looking for feedback from other companies.

I’m switching over to consulting in June and I’m already assigned to a new project for the firm. I have a meeting with the Engagement manager on Wednesday and I was wondering what questions you typically ask or important information you need to know before joining a project.
We are in the process of consolidating accounts for a new client and moving them over to Charles Schwab where we custody - all straight forward stuff. The client has an old 401k from a previous employer and filled out the paperwork with that 401k to roll it to Schwab. So about $470k hit her Schwab account last week. And then exactly 7 days later, another $460k hits again. Both from the 401k custodian. But her account was only $470k. I think they messed up royally. Now what???
I joined in December. Submitted the firm and client impacts. Tagged to a project last week. Do i have to anything else or the impact statements are enough? What's impact indicators, is it impact statements or something else??

Why is there such an emphasis on chargability? I understand we should be trying to work on client billable work as much as we can, but it also disincentivizes finding diverse experiences and projects.

Clients with toxic cultures: how have you dealt with them? We have a compliance client with a serious culture issue- they regularly throw each other and our team under the proverbial bus, throwing escalations around etc. I am one of the junior partners and suggested having an open dialogue with our C-suite contact to discuss constructive ways of working, at the very least… but the senior partner has vetoed it. Our team morale is pretty bad and we’ve had a couple of people leave because of it.
How is Ambit Asset Finance project from learning perspective? Asking since everything is internal. Internal frameworks and stuff. And since it's a huge project, people just get to work on chunks of it. How is it if you move out of FIS after working in this project?
I’ve been working to an unhealthy degree lately. And I’ve been making the excuse that I have a lot of work right now, but I’m starting to wonder if I’m addicted to it. Part of it is anxiety and perfectionism. But my behavior is now actively harmful to myself and starting to harm my marriage. How do I stop? I’m not talking work-life balance. I mean, how do I say, “I don’t care that the client wants this tomorrow and I’m not close to done, I’m going to sleep tonight”?
I have received an offer from Deloitte for ‘Project Delivery Senior Anlyst’ position on some technology preferred provider program. It is hire in advance , that means I should get project ‘after joining’. I have heard PDM is like contract worker, you can get laid off once project ends(just 2 weeks bench). How true is that/how risky it is to join PDM?(considering I am in US on H1B) 2 . How much time it takes to get first project? I am confused because it’s really better salary than what I make.
Been really great about keto lately, but just started a new project today and every time I think of how much of a bunch of dumbasses my project team is, I reach for the Nutella. Halp. 🙈

I bought a laptop from a seller who is a friend of a good friend and my bf refused to accompany me. He came with me the night before to the ATM to get cash, but even that I felt like I had to convince him to come. I felt safe meeting with the seller because it was my good friend’s good friend. But I would have liked my bf to come in case someone tried to rob me as I walked back to my car. He refused because he was sure I’d be safe meeting with a friend of a friend. Am I wrong for being so upset?

Consultants advise executives/leads on An analytics roadmap, and AAG come in and implement, rather than go with a Big 4 / Indian IT shop?) Thanks guys.
