Does Salesforce have a strategic customer engagement team in their Consulting org that focuses on project delivery? If so, how’s it different from their Advisory services that staffs Program Architects on delivery projects?
Remember how Republicans keep screaming bloody murder about “cancel culture” while simultaneously making a concerted effort to prevent people from voting?
I will never get sick of listening to teams explaining pop culture to clients who don’t pay attention to pop culture. “Ok well the Jonas Brothers are a band, but also brothers..."
Is agency culture relatively the same across the country? Are agencies in smaller markets a little more chill (better work life balance, less chaos, etc.)? I'm getting a little burnt out and I'm not sure if it's a NYC thing or an advertising thing.
Is there any coming back to agency life after starting your career on the client side? #askingforafriend FML that friend is me 😨
I don't see many people on here from General Dynamics. What's the culture like? I went to a job fair to be cleared to a TS/SCI and they said the background check will take a little over a year lol.
Is pivoting into implementations a good thing to go more client facing? What are some exits out of implementations?
New to consulting. How should I structure my message to project leads to try to get staffed. How detailed to I need to be ?
Just transferred to the NYC office and realized it’s a whole new beast (people/culture/projects). Any advice is welcome!
If your path demands you to walk through hell (or an equivalent client), then walk as if you own the place.
Anyone have any insight into the ES&I practice at Guidehouse - WLB, type of work, culture, etc.? Thanks!

Aloof from project SM thinks he can get away with responding to my question with a question. Na man, 2 can play this game.
This is for ACN fish or ex acn fish. The project I'm on (more like a staff aug but we're there to support the client deliver their internal project) isn't doing well. I'm new to ACN - well, big consulting in general, so trying to understand what that means for us, and for me? (Also, for context - I'm one of the 4 SM's on this engagement (it's a large client and we have a 10+ team)). Continued in comments below...
Thoughts on EYParthenon? Culture, type of projects, and package compared to top consultancies not being part of a big4?
Gave my 2 weeks on Friday and project leadership asked me to write the proposal for our 2018 extension. First off- why? Im literally the worst person to do that at this point; Secondly- SO UNMOTIVATED
Hi ladies - I’m 29, my husband & I are planning to start TTC in a few months. I’ve been diagnosed by pcos when I was 17 and I’ve been on birth control ever since due to irregular periods. I’m nervous that it’ll be difficult to conceive without hormones/meds but I have no clue. Wondering if anyone’s had a similar situation or has an insights on getting pregnant with irregular periods or pcos? How long in advance did you quit birth control?
Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
What's a realistic path from agency (media or creative) to a product marketing role client side?
Anyone on here complete grad school through GSAP and go back to Deloitte and have any pro tips for how to do it right? (Max reimbursement, things to do before you leave, benefits, etc.)
When is a good time to move to industry to have better work life balance with some good benefits?Manager or Senior manager? #tax
Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.
Does every consulting firm have such restricting personal investing policies? Does Independence and other restriction apply just at Big 4 or is this common everywhere ?
Looking for a few positive & current questions/brian teasers to engage a large group (e.g., pet adoptions have increased by X percent this March compared to last in the wake of WFH due to covid-19)
Coronavirus is still lurking behind the scenes. News reports are so vague. They Don't even break it down by state?
I am switching jobs and my wife is pregnant. We will have health insurance with my new employer but my wife found some article suggesting we may not get pregnancy coverage under new insurance because they will recognize it as a preexisting condition. Can anyone assuage my concern and let me know if there’s any validity to this? Are we screwed..
I just separated from my husband and will be filing for divorce this week. I have removed myself from the home. Should I tell my job I’m going through a divorce? I do work from home and it’s possible I may have to take a few days off to regroup.
Thoughts on staying on a client that you have been on for a while with a manager you like or taking a new role with cooler, new work with a team you don’t know? Is the grass always greener?
Which Big 4 is the best to be at regarding work culture and benefits? Especially during these tough times.
@ Guidehouse ppl - I left the firm a year ago but left my 401K funds w my old Transamerica acct w GH. Now GH is bought by Navigant & Transamerica said my contract is ending..will I lose my 401k $???
I really wish it were possible as a Senior to take a "quiet" or remote day every week and focus on work uninterrupted. I get that it would be a challenge for staff/mgrs but think it would be worth it.
Thoughts on applying to roles at FAANG that your qualified for but don’t see yourself doing long term just to get your foot in the door, then trying to pivot—anyone have experience doing this?
Started with a new project and a colleague uses the word ‘cock blocker’ a lot but only within the internal team. Is this word professionally acceptable? If not how do I tell him?
In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!
