How different is the role of an Art Director at an agency vs. client side? Currently finishing up an internship & I am interested switching to art direction.
Need counsel: Left advertising to go client side last year. Working at a huge company isn’t for me long-term but the money is great, I have more balance and actually raised my kids this year. I have the opportunity to be a c-suite leader at a very small agency on the rise. Super confused. Money will be less, long-term opportunity will be more. Also thinking about having another kid soonish.
Can someone please help me with refering in Tcs or Accenture for Technical Project Manager or Senior Project Manager role really need your help i am looking for a job change. email@example.com
One of the partners at the firm asked me if I can move my marriage (already planned and shared dates 3months back) to next year as there is lot of work to be done for the client. I am always grateful, as for everything I have learnt in consulting is at this company. But asking me to reconsider one of the most important events in my personal life against a project. Is that right? How do you care for your work and employer anymore after this?
Partners (at Deloitte at least), are you all trained to refer to everyone as “good people” when speaking to them? I find it a bit disingenuous when Partners who I just met tell me I’m “good people”, “do great work”. I just scheduled a first networking call with you, or got pulled in to your project 2 seconds ago. I know you barely know me 😆
Just started at a place that’s a bit smaller, and older on average. So far everyone is nice, the client is decent, the work is ok and the office is pretty empty by 5:30. Not used to this!
Well the good news is that my manager said it would be done by Monday morning to the client. The bad news is that he sent that email to the client at 7pm Friday and never texted me. Wait both are bad.
This week is my last week at my current company, I am joinig Slalom Consulting in few weeks. My current employer wants to hire me as a part time contractor, in case they need me for a project. I’m not sure if it is against my new employment agreement. Does anybody have any idea about this? Who should I check with before I sign that contractor agreement?
Anyone witness slackers who got into companies you have no idea how? Had a coworker who does jack chit at work besides chatting on Facebook yet lands at a faang company? I guess if he brings the same work ethic he will be spit out for sure. Or maybe he just had no interest in doing project work.
In your opinion, what’s the expected response time for standard emails (not time sensitive, normal client/partner). 48 hours? 24 hours? 12? Depends?

Started at PwC last week on Tuesday (Associate 2 not senior like my profile says). I’ve never done client facing work before. Should I be reaching out to be placed on an engagement or will I be connected via TalentLink?PwC
Partners: we've noticed how hard you've worked on this project where we completely abandoned you, did not supply you with adequate resources to complete your task, and rebuffed every attempt you made to ask for assistance. So we just wanted to take this moment to tell you that hopefully this has been a learning opportunity and you'll know better than to let us do that in the future.
No matter how many years I’ve freelanced, I still find it difficult to accurately (and fairly) predict how many hours a project will take in order to bid on it (and bake in revisions). Any tips or tricks out there?
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
I’m inundated with client work. Definitely working >12 hour days resulting in no time to offer support with RFPs, practice development, etc. I feel like this will work against me come promo. Thoughts?
How is important is it to follow the lead of your project? Client is working with the SC’s directly and bypasses the M on this project. I feel like I’m more successful following the SC on this project than the M.

Hi, would love some advice! I’ve been at my company ~1 yr and feeling like I need a change due to various reasons. Not sure if I can apply elsewhere w/ a little less than 1 yr under my belt, and I don’t have many connections in my area. Right now, I play a BSA role on my team, and I’m hoping to pursue product/UX design. I’m also doing a UX bootcamp in the spring & working on a udemy course outside of work for UX/UI. What’s a good stepping stone role (remote preferred)?

How do your companies recognize technical (e.g., STEM) accomplishments? I’ve heard of old school things like fellowships and “Distinguished Engineer” titles. Wondering what other places do now. I’m struggling to see where my path leads if I don’t want to be a people manager and instead focus on becoming a top technical IC instead. Are there clear paths for that anymore?
I'm a non tech professional, who is working in a role that is almost of an account manager. I'm inclined towards being a PM. Please could you suggest market required skills and proficiencies
