I started at a litigation firm around 6 months ago. I took a pay cut for the position under the direction that the billable hours would be much less at this firm. As it has turned out this is not the case and if anything my hours have increased. I plan on sticking it out six more months to total a year before I move on. Is one year enough time in a position to make a move?
Any advice on interviewing with Strategy&? Haven’t interviewed in 5 years and am incredibly interested in a position. Have first round coming up next week. Thanks in advance!!
I was working with a racist bigot client before covid hit and tonight I'm especially glad I don't have to fly in to see his stupid face in the morning. I'm glad none of us have to go into an office after nights like tonight.

Currently at Crowe with a Big 4 offer- financial advisory (Manager). I’m ready for a jump and saw that both BCG and Bain are opening offices in my locale (Denver, CO). I’m assuming they’re going to be staffing up. For those BCG and Bain fish, is it worth it to reach out and to whom?
I rolled off a project and after 3 weeks they staffed me back. Just the thought of going back gave me a headache and a knot in my stomach :(. Just wanted to vent.

Team member gave her three week notice. I will likely have to pick up majority of her work for the foreseeable future (which is very different from my assigned work). My company is on a hiring freeze and reduced salaries. Sooo do y’all think it hopeless to ask for some sort of raise or bonus of some kind?
How can one get off a project because the client is delaying system access along with wanting to shift up deliverable submission date? Is this even a legit reason to roll off?
Interviewed for a senior technical position at a startup (about 50 employees). During the interview the CEO spent about 20 minutes answering my questions. There was no discussion about my technical skills or experience. They emailed that they are working on an offer. Is the interview process a redflag? The only technical screening that happened was the HR lead's 10 minute phone call.
What are some team building activities you have initiated for the purposes of getting more visibility from leadership? Received feedback that not many know my capabilities outside of core project team
Ladies, I am up for promotion soon and have gotten extremely positive verbal feedback on my last project. However, the formal review that I received from the mgr deviated from the verbal review. Mgr claims that he wrote a glowing promotion review, which principal/partner team pushed back on. I don’t trust the mgr’s words because we’ve had some bad blood before and he is telling me to let him circle back w/leadership and for me to stay out of it. Any advice on next steps? Sad and frustrated.

Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
Just finished my compensation meeting at work, got my promo and a really nice raise that pushed me into the six figure club. If you had asked me 5 years ago if I'd ever be making this much money or be having this much success I would have laughed. My wife is super happy for me and has been a big support but I'm secretly starting to resent the fact I settled for her. If I had known I could do this well in life I would have waited and done so much better than her 😕

I’m a first year and fucked up big time. The client doesn’t know about this but a senior associate was furious. I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.

To all consultants out there: I am rather introvert and quite confcall - how did you learn to boost your confidence? Culturally I come from a region where self promotion is seen negatively. You always down-play.
Sitting on a flight next to a young lady and an elderly woman. I’m in the middle. The elderly woman keeps asking me to do things for her like adjust her air and pick up her phone she dropped and open her water (she didn’t understand the plastic seal). I get the whole respect your elders thing but the lady is also coughing and sneezing and every time I do something for her I sanitize because I don’t want to being germs home to my fam. What would you do? I feel obligated to help but don’t want to.
