Are brand manifestos necessary? I’ve been doing branding for 12 years and both agency and clients put so much focus on it but it never really gets used/read after project is live.
Hello Fishes ,
I have got an offer from GlobalLogic , with client as Google. Can anyone guide me if it is a good company to work for ?
I joined EY GDS in Jan 2022 and still haven't got any billable project. In such cases, is there a chance that they don't give confirmation once the probation period is over? Is there a chance of layoff?
YOE = 14 years

Can someone explain what client strategy associate in sales/marketing does in internal firm services? I understand I am being partnered with sales. Might seem obvious to some but coming from media I am confused as to what product is being sold. Any input is appreciated!
Any advice on transitioning into UX Design…currently working as a R&D Project Manager 2 YOE so I’m pretty early in my career, which would make this an ideal time to transition. I’ve always had an interest in design but never gained any experience in it through academics or professionally. Returning to school isn’t an option (recently completed a Masters in IE and honestly have not found much value in the degree) I’m open to bootcamps but I am concerned about placement…any advice?

Going to client location for long term (4-7 months) what's the best for accommodation?
Accomodation not being provided by DI :|
True workplace confession:
I have ghost-ticked a few procedures during the last two disaster-filled, soul-crushing audits I completed.
I’m sure I would’ve been able to produce the support necessary to back up the ghost-ticks, but hey, I was running out of time before the “deadlines” and these jobs were understaffed from the get go. Not to mention the client not being ready for us until a month into fieldwork when we had a budgeted fieldwork period of six weeks 🤷♂️
Anyone else work like a dog all day and then get yelled for making a small human error that had no serious effect on the project?
Anyone out there sell in a Voice project to a client yet? Is your agency trying to sell a Voice project to a client?
I started a consulting job at an upper mid-tier firm back in May. I sat on the bench for a month before being onboarded onto client (FAANG client to be non-specific) and I am more than a month on this new client. There are about 5 other C/SC and a few Principals that do “check-ins” with the group. I have been assigned an ETL task (PySpark/Airflow) that will take me about 40 hours e2e to deploy. This is my assignment for the next 4 months. Most of my colleagues do not know code at all. Normal?
I got allocated to a practice but did not get any project yet…I joined last week….is it expected or should i reach out ??
Has anyone here ever pursued a relationship with a client? 😱 how did you go about it? Did you leave the account before making any moves?
I always wanted to be a planner but found myself in acc due to job availabilities and needing to pay rent. While a great account person is priceless, it’s just not me - unless I fake it and go against my nature. Now I’m a few years in and generally dislike my job because it’s schmoozing, pencil pushing, and not really producing. How can I make the pívot to strategy? Is a pívot even realistic? Should I just say fuck it and bear with things until going client side someday?
Any males here dyed their hair blonde? A la Frank Ocean? How was it received by your team/firm/client
Tiktok influencers have pushed a narrative that IT project management (Agile/Scrum) is an easy career pivot, though simply completing Google/LinkedIn courses and a resume cleanup.
Has anyone gone from a non-IT role and pivoted as easy as advertised? Anyone have success or horror stories with this!
Don’t know if this is allowed here but I just finished a side project i’m super proud of and wanted to share.

Have any of you had a recruiter actively court you, make you jump through hoops and then ghost you after telling you they submitted you to their client?
I joined Wipro 3 months back but I am not involved in any project. I have given the multiple interviews for project but sometimes they take the multiple rounds but at last they deallocate me from that project.
I am not able to understand, what are the reasons for deallocation?
It seems to be tough to sit free specially for experienced candidates.

Hi everyone! I have been doing more ratings on Vivino as of late. If you use the app please feel free to follow my ratings, and I will do the same! I like to find more niche $20-60 wines from smaller wineries, as opposed to just going for the the Caymus/ opus of the world. If that’s you too I’d be happy to connect and share recommendations.

Happy Jewish New Year to everyone on here!
I need some advice on whether or not to accept a job from my client.
I love the client work I do. It's in my field of expertise, I'm passionate about the work, and I get along well with the client team. I've also always wanted to work for the government in some capacity, and it's so hard to get in at a high level without Veteran or current federal employees preference.
However, I also love my firm. I love getting to work on different things and I feel so supported by my team.
As government consultants, should we be eligible for the same student loan forgiveness and low income protection programs available to government / non-profit employees? I know we’re not currently, but SHOULD that be changed in light of universally lower incomes and fewer exit opportunities?

Federal employee here. Anyone feel like they get paid well but are still a rat in the rat race? I feel like after all the taxes/fees taken out I make less than I’d like and bills are only getting more expensive . What do others do for side jobs to supplement income? Alternatively, what is your best advice in budgeting as expenses increase.
Folks in federal consulting at Deloitte, PwC, Booz, KPMG. How much do you make as a second year Senior Consultant (level below Manager)? I make $106k.
Your take on: “Neoliberals run on a platform that the government doesn't work, and when they get elected, they make sure if it.”
Real talk: what are the (non-Partner) opportunities to earning $200k+ in public sector consulting? Most Directors don’t make this AFAIK. Does state and local work pay better? Or move to commercial?
