I don't see the problem with happy hours #socialdevelopmentmatters

@wellendowedpenguin (didn't type that without giggling) that may be a practice-specific initiative - it's not what CDP is designed as. And it's part of what I've been pushing the leadership to define as a real development program. What practice are you in?

M here, so I'm pre-CDP. From what my analyst tells me, they're doing 3 month rotations on projects now? That's a step in the right direction from a professional development standpoint. And HHs are good for your personal development 🍻

The whole rotation this is totally untrue. Pretty much every analyst I know in CDP is on 12+ month engagements

Its lame. Its the "you didnt make it to consultant, so lets try to make you feel better about it, so you dont quit." Yeah i left before i got sucked into that.

Also a load of bull that only like 60% of analysts got pulled into the program. Feeling very confused that I didn't get rolled in

I don't even get happy hours 😔 - I was added to a DP program as a new hire. Promised opportunities to try different things. 10 mo later still on the same project I'm not interested in. Glad they are starting a rotation for some. Also very jealous.
