Anyone here at one of the design consulting firms like IDEO, frog, Fjord, RGA, etc? What kind of projects do you do?

Nowadays it feels like really like a lot of management consulting. Strategy. Recommendations etc. Not ‘designing’ things

Did IDEO just lay off a portion of their workforce?

Lot of early stage strategy and ux MVPs, which might never a real-life project, cause our sales / consultants do not know, how to staff / work with creatives 😅

Word to the other newbies like me. ALWAYS choose PPO over HMO for insurance (if you have the option). The extra cost is so worth it for the quality of your healthcare and your stress levels.

is it a red flag to you if your decently sized mid law firm has never once mentioned pro bono opportunities? we don’t have any kind of diversity initiative either and obviously i know how i feel about THAT. but was wondering how weird this part of it is.

Alright so fine there were not many diversity initiatives in the past and not a huge push to create more diversity in organizations. But now is the time you can change that. Moving forward you can put these these initiatives in place.

Another analyst (male indian) starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). What should I do
