Been at big 4 since analyst and out of 15+ projects I don’t think me or any team I’ve been on has delivered something the client actually acted on/put in production/used... anyone else feel the same?

Try a GPS project. I’ve had work that has influenced national security decisions. Actually really exciting work.

Ditto. I did a DoD project a while back that directly impacted how 13M+ people receive healthcare each year from the military. Super rewarding!

Do you do strategy?

Yep! My personal low point before I exited to industry was ~6 years ago while I was at a B4. I was on a project where we were designing a new financial management system for the client, along with all associated workflows, change management, etc. We were the third brand name firm the client had hired to do this, the first firm's solution was never implemented, the second firm's solution was apparently horrific once implemented, and I found out after I rolled off the project that the client shelved ours less than a week after implementation.

You shouldn't be surprised. A nurse has the most impact. As for consultant s, better not look back. It's actually best not to.

Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?
