This is great. Now, we know Publicis works for Celgene and they hate them as well. Well done @P1 what a professional behaviour

They’re a freaking nightmare on most engagements

Two things I’ll complain about most:

1. they’ve got a million contractors working for them and it’s incredibly confusing how they’re structured sometimes

2. They have what seems like an army of project managers that are so annoying. They want updated timelines weekly, they want responsibility charts, they want to check in three or four times a week. What am I going to report in status this morning that I didn’t cover on status yesterday afternoon? Why do you need to know what exactly senior analyst A is going to do versus senior analyst B.

Then you get an email from the client’s boss asking why it’s been radio silence.

Publicis is everywhere. It’s like a mega agency. Didn’t know they do consulting

Girlfriend works woth them. They seem to be the worst company in the world. Act like their shit doesn’t smell. Work crazy hours

A frustrating client since they never know shit and are entirely incompetent. But hey that probably means it can't be that hard of a job. Hey do have a lot of money and consistently shell it out to us year round.

Had someone reach out to me for a contract project leadership position implementing nCino at a commercial bank.

Any insight into what kind of rate I should ask for?

I was thinking somewhere in the neighborhood of $250/hour to make it worth my while considering this is a bank that routinely hires big4 and MBB, I have 15+ years of big firm experience, and this is a meaty role.

Just want to make sure I’m not aiming crazy high for a contract position…

Sorry if this is a bad question but I’ve tried to google and found conflicts. I’ve seen a lot on social media to not use the term “person of color” when referring to a black person. I’ve also seen companies touting diversity on Instagram like “30% black, 55% person of color...etc.”. I’m wondering, what ethnicity/ races are they referring to when they say “people of color”? I’m guessing black +others? Is it everything non white (Latino, Asian, middle eastern etc)? Is it only some Asians?
