Any Capco consultants here? Any info about it would be greatly appreciated. Got called for an interview but don't know much about them
Do you wear your wedding/engagement rings to interviews? (Rings have connotations for both genders...)
How would I go about applying to other consulting firms? I'd imagine randomly applying online won't end up successful
I hate the fact that I have to sit there until 1:30 am doing nothing just because my senior was procrastinating all day long. 6 hours spent applying for a new job! #priorities
This partner I work with always using the word "anal". "This client is anal! He's anal with interviews ! Sorry for being so anal, but your slide sucks."Is this acceptable?
Anyone have a good answer to "what culture are you looking for?"during a job interview? Had one today and the guy said just don't answer collaborative or team based
Anybody has any contacts in Arthur Little? Have an interview lined up next week. LinkedIn not that helpful.
After months of carrying two computers I finally found a use for the client laptop...applying for jobs while on the road.
Word of advice to anyone interviewing or looking, negotiations start well before an offer is given; if you go through the whole process properly they'll show you an offer you can't refuse off the bat.
If Im considering applying to grad school to keep options open, how do I handle the recommendations? It wouldn't be through my firm, but if I got into the right school Id seriously consider going...
Teaching moment: Do not show up to an interview an hour early. Just be there on time. 10 minutes early max unless otherwise told.
How does this sound?
My company is now displaying!
I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.

What are the most important skills or strengths you need in order to move up from consultant, to senior consultant to a manager?
We work in a high-stress high-stakes industry, no doubt. This naturally requires thick skin and ability to handle feedback. Not sure if anyone else is this way, but I’d be remiss to not admit that I’m sensitive (yep, men can’t always be tough) and hold myself to be in good standing with everyone. So receiving stern, harsh-but valid feedback is tough, emotionally. Any advice for how to “get thick skin” or handle these conversations better without letting it get to me?
How long are your delays today??
Thinking about leaving the firm. Any advice on how to exit gracefully? 2 week notice or more?
I went from over 2 years experience in technology risk to now doing technology transformation. How likely is it I can get into technology in m&a in the big 4?
Less than 3 months of consulting left until I can resign without paying back signing bonus. I really want to get into Coinbase. How are things at the company now that stock price is very low and crypto is down? Coinbase
So Dell Technologies? Watching TV and been self their commercials quite a lot. Digital Transformation contender? 🤔😱
Year-End: The time to figure out that this firm isn’t for you and get another year to be reminded daily that it isn’t.
