I was in a meeting with my boss and account team discussing an overage on a project. We were looking at everyone’s hours, and our UX lead (a woman) had doubled her effort. The work was necessary...
Just entered my staff 2 year this summer. A large (private) client just reached out thru a recruiter to offer me a senior accountant position.
Not sure where to put this, but...how much is the max you spend on a single wine bottle at dinner when expensing dinner on a regular project working for big 4?
My manager told me right before our client presentation to “sound happy” when I present... Apparently he thinks I sound too serious... Not sure how to feel about it.
Officially working remote instead of client site. Top three things that came to mind: 1) more doggo cuddles at home 2) comfy clothes 3) shit, I’m gonna have to buy groceries 😂
Should've noticed the lack of stains on the front. I've manage to run out for errand both Sat and Sun w my tshirt inside out. Jeesh. This project's gotta end soon. My weekend brain is dissolving.

Spent the last 2 years at my firm in a IT consultant role. Over those 2 years I lobbied the partners within my practice and the strategy practice to give me a project. Today is my trial project
I’m working on a project and the account leads are, in every sense of the word, useless, and yet have an incredible ‘holier than thou’ attitude towards telling everyone else what they should be doing.
Why do I feel so guilty about wanting to take another offer and leaving my team? I like my current teammates just HATE the client and project. I’ve also asked for a raise multiple times and have been told no. I’m underpaid but am up for promotion this year (June). I don’t think Deloitte can/willmatch. I want to take the money but I feel like I’m still learning leaderships skills and can see the potential for beefing out the management portion of my resume. What would you do? (Offer 50% more)
1st yr associate w/ much more responsibility than the other associates on my project which is mostly good. But I've always been an anxious person and I can't seem to stop thinking about work (cont'd)
How do firms track LCA violations? Consultant on my team has a pending LCA, but is traveling to client location regardless. Just charging time to his home location. What are the implications?
So I left B4 risk assurance because I found the work a drag and moved to a boutique place where I was hoping to get a better experience or shape my career the way I want. However, this place isn’t what I was expecting and the project I’m on requires deadly hours and is staff aug. I’m looking to do this for a year and go back to b4 (as I like being in a bubble) but a different service line. How possible is this?
My company expects me to work over 12 hours a day and I’m being asked to work the weekend constantly. Its making me extremely frustrated as I feel my labor is being exploited. Is it like this at other agencies? Has anyone made the switch to client side?
Who will decide hike for an individual and what all the parameters they consider ? I did so well this FY with quite a lot client appreciations but still got VC RATING. Not so happy in terms of transparency.
Very annoying with SMs can't see the bigger picture and get caught up in minor details of things that don't matter to the goals and objectives of a project.
2 years at MBB + M7 MBA, currently in Chicago. Looking to move to a lower cost of living geography. Heavily considering exiting into Tech in the Research Triangle Park Area (think Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Morrisville) . Targeting these firms for BizOps/ Sales Strategy roles: Cisco, Lenovo, IBM, Salesforce, Amazon, Microsoft. Non-negotiable is a focus on cloud technologies - either as a provider or an adopter. Any heavyweights I am missing? (Purposely left GCP out). Appreciate the stress test!

Curious to thoughts on “best time” to get pregnant/have kids. Am currently a first year consultant and would like to have one soon, but worried about my reputation and promotion timing.
I got laid off during the beginning of the pandemic. Since then I’ve been struggling with drug use and finances. Deloitte hired me out grad school. I’ve been unable to find a job in IT Controls. Any help? I did IT Controls Audit Readiness for a couple years. The market is so niche and being black makes it twice as hard to find work. I really need some help landing a new role folks. I’m 22 days clean!
