How do you convince a client you add value?
I read somewhere that MBB have a “moral veto” clause where any consultant can opt out of a case if it violates their own sense of morality. An example might be a vegan taking on a meat processing client. Can anyone verify? Is this formalised or just a cultural thing?
What are good agencies to join as a Project Manager in Los Angeles (and which agencies in LA should be avoided)? Thinking of relocating there from NYC.
I got a job offer for a senior role at a large company I’ve heard is sink or swim. I’m up for the challenge but what’s the right way to negotiate a severance clause to protect myself if they were to decide that it’s not a fit without setting off red flags?
Okay something kind of weird happened. Started a new project today with all new people. We met in person today and manager left for home after checkout around 5PM. Three Associates on my team were planning to get dinner, I said I was going to bail to go workout and eat at home. This girl screams at me in front of the whole floor “you are so fake!! you are not going to workout. you’re being fake.” I’m just standing there in shock like what? She’s like “what are you even going to do at the gym”…
A little birdie told me time to jump ship, layoffs are coming... this firm is terrible with managing staff/forecasting needs - hope they trim at the top this time...ugh
When your client tells you, “I know how to do that,” to dismiss you telling them best practices.

So if my friend is a manager and I'm a consultant who just got staffed but hasnt started yet..can he pull me onto his project? I don't want to do the work but it aligns to my industry..
Corporate lawyers @ year end: frantically trying to sign/close multiple deals while group is super understaffed/spread thin. Random partner in different practice group who you did a 1 off thing for months ago: ‘can you review this and jump on the client call ASAP today?’ 🙄🙄

I had to layoff a great person from my agency. The pain in her eyes was crushing and I think it’s the last straw for me here. Having to let people go for performance is one thing, but this...

I was laid off for the first time last wk and I feel completely empty. Does anyone have any advice? I've been talking with recruiters, trying to find connections, but it all feels hollow and hopeless.
Everyone I know who uses backpacks has gotten fired. It's called Darwinism, survival of the fittest nerds.
My account partner is doing a terrible job and will be getting fired—timeline TBD. Given we are living in a pandemic, I want to give them a heads up to start job hunting. How inappropriate is that? How could I do it?
I have worked in the HR space for the past 9 years, however most of my experience has been in Talent Acquisition. I do want to move into a People Operations/Generalist role. I’m planning to go for a HR certificate but unsure if I should go for a PHR or SHRM. Please advise!
Covid has been hard. March 2029- December 2020 I drank a lot to cope without realizing it. January- March I didn't realize I was depressed. March I came to terms with increase and ongoing suicidal ideation and needed help. I went into a intensive outpatient program (IOP) which has been super helpful. During the beginning of covid I drank every day and in a great deal. January it was a "dry" month which was hard the first week but overall great. March 2021 realized I'm clinically depressed.
Does your baby drink more milk when away from you? I am WFH and pumping and breastfeeding. Sometimes nanny gives baby the bottle and then baby wants / sees me and nurses after. I pump afterwards but only get like 1 oz (since she drank a full bottle). So basically, baby needed another 4 oz on top of breastfeeding. On the weekend baby drinks from me and doesn’t need more milk. Baby is 10 months. I have a freezer stash but don’t want to reduce supply too much.

My firm recently merged with another firm, and it is starting to feel distinctly more “corporate.” All of their decisions are metric-driven now—billables, realization rates, client and matter origination, business development hours. I’m missing the community feeling of the old firm, when I was more than just a number. Any advice on how to adapt? Is this just COVID burnout?
