I’ve worked in consulting for 4 years and still find the culture so unexpectedly toxic at times with surprises like some person torpedeos your promo or does things behind your back. What is the deal? Why is consulting like this?
Fed up. Need to vent. I’ve been an analyst for 2 years. I’ve been asking to be promoted for the past year. I’ve been managing work streams, managing other team members, delegating tasks to other analysts/senior analysts, etc. I was supposed to be promoted this past November and was told to try again for next May. A senior analyst on my team is leaving the project and my manager now wants to pass his work streams down to me, on top of the ones I am currently managing. Contd.

I’m currently working at a law firm in San Diego specializing in coastal property rights as a litigation paralegal and legal assistant. We received a minute order from a preliminary injunction hearing. Our client was ordered to post an injunction bond of $2,500. First our client walked to the courthouse to try to pay the bond up front, but they would not accept his money. He tried to call several bond companies, but all said the amount was too small. So how do you post an injunction bond?

What does Product Management in the Professional Services practice of a large SaaS company do? Sounded like identifying client professional services needs and developing a service offering for that need; but in my experience most professional service offerings are reactionary, i.e. responding to RFPs. This sounds like creating a service and trying to aggressively sell it to clients that aren’t asking for the service.

I have been invited to a company diversity program. After reviewing the materials, I believe this will be more divisive and unhelpful than it will be constructive. I would like to not attend.
