So much yes. Client always wants more than is possible with Launch and we just look like assholes for not allowing it or pushing a CO.

I always feel like the ass explaining to someone who had no involvement with the SOW or contract what is Launch and what we will deliver.

Yep - launch projects rarely go well. We have taken over some of the launch projects in flight or afterwards and usually the total investment turned out to be higher compared to standard implementation.

Yes and it is worst As others said , workday does bad job in explaining it and project team stay like pain in ass ! Launch projects need a strong PM who has leadership backing for the number of No's he/she gonna say

Thankful to have a job that not only includes job security, caring colleagues, and interesting projects, but that also is still giving double-digit percentage raises, promotions, and $250 WFH stipends 🙏🏼 Trying to slow down and count my blessings during this late night grind

I requested a credit line increase and got immediately rejected. Called the help line to figure out why, and they said my utilization is too low to justify the increase. How do I balance keeping utilization low for my credit score but high enough so that I can get a credit line increase?

Hey guys. Was laid off as a generalist consultant last month. My eventual goal is to get into data analytics and data science. At this point I’m really good with excel and have some working knowledge in both SQL and tableau. I feel kinda lost still, what should I be learning specifically? I’d love to chat and learn about what you guys do and a bit of mentoring (if you’re up for it). Thanks in advance!
