Are code reviews a thing in consulting? My understanding is that they are best practice, and my friends working at software companies do them. But I've never seen them in my 2.5 years in consulting.

Code reviews should be a part of every software development process regardless of industry. If not being done already on your team, do initiate it.

Unfortunately I'm still junior, not sure how I'd tell the senior people to start code reviews. Especially since there isn't normally extra budget in projects for more work and I generally already work more hours than I bill.

Luckily I'm heading to a new company, hopefully they do a better job there.

They should be but they’re not. Coding in consulting was mostly a joke from my experience.

Yes, at least peer reviewing if not manager. I’d also suggest that in a mature process you could use pull requests as a way to get client approval for changes (even if they don’t read the code)

You should be having regular code reviews. A bit surprised your team isn’t. I always insist on them.

Depends on good the team is and what the client paid for.

For my ERP implementations, one of the senior devs or tech leads is supposed to conduct them, even if it’s later than ideal.

Code reviews are definitely a thing. Even more important these days for cyber reasons and code scanning tools are expensive.

Agree with OP. I see diminishing interest in manual code review do to reliance on automation using tools such as SonarQube. At least in the two projects that I am involved in.

How do you cope when it feels as if every 6 months, someone you considered a mentor, a confidant, and a friend decides to leave the firm (yes I know you can still be acquaintances), but it’s really not the same when you can’t just ask off the cuff questions and vent over MS Teams; or hangout in the office or at LakeHouse; or commiserate about difficult clients, and in those moments, learning a great deal from that person who has been in your shoes and understands what you’re going through

Is it normal for a start-up to be super vague and keep setting up meetings to get to know you but gives you bare minimum details about them?

I had a start-up reach out to me and after a few meetings I have barely been able to get any information about them. I don't know name, size, or anything but a vague description about what they offer (don't even know what role they would want me in). Is this normal or am I right to be annoyed?
