I’m currently working on a project where I’m in a group of four. Someone said “hey I’m in your group”, and I said “sorry, the group is full”, and they said “when did we pick up this other person, we can’t do groups of 5”. They aren’t picking up the hint...

I know it’s generally good practice to give 2 weeks notice when leaving your company but should I give more time given that it will take longer than 2 weeks to backfill me on a project team?
Worst client you've ever worked for? I know we have had these threads before but having a particularly bad night and misery loves company!
Have seen people who have climbed the ladder fairly quickly in Big4 firms by sticking to one client. How can this be a good thing for you as a consultant? I get the relationship part but how can....
Hi guys, I switched 20 days back to Optum. I have 7 years of experience working as a full stack Engineer, who is passionate working on both front end and back end on latest technologies. But my project is working only on back end with 10 years old tech stack. There is no front end work at all. What should I do? I don't like working here at all, but I am not sure whether moving out again in a month will give bad Impression on my resume. Hence please give me advice on this situation

Laid off after many, many years spent on agency side. What would you do next? Consulting? Client side? Build new agency? What does the future of advertising and marketing look like?
10+ YOE, experienced hire, and up for promotion to SC this year. My current project is straight up analyst work (absolutely no disrespect). I spend my days doing nothing but updating excel sheets, producing reports for slides, and doing extremely boring work (go into 100+ folders/excels and report back on who's completed what). I not only feel like this is BS, but I feel like it's going to screw up my promotion. I've never asked any analyst I have worked with to do this stuff, yet here I am...

A client wants to do a 30 minute video podcast promoting their product. Any suggestions on how to make it interesting and engaging?
I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
Hot take: resumes don’t need to be perfect—they just have to be “good enough.” 🔗 in comments for the resume I used to get out of consulting to join a start-up, in addition to the resume tips and tricks (and lessons learned) I found to be most helpful.
Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)
Exit ops for functional technology consultants? Or get stronger at tech strat and use that as a jumping point?
Anyone have any insights on Accenture strategy? Market reputation? Work culture? How they play with the rest of Accenture?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Question for MBB consultants: Is there a set path to transition from a big 4 advisory (cyber) position to an equivalent consulting role at the big 3? Or is such a transition not possible without an mba?

Am currently at Accenture CDO and have the opportunity to go to Deloitte S&O. Deloitte is offering a full lateral with a signing bonus. Is it worth it in terms of career development to move to S&O? Or should I stick it out with a known entity? 7 YOE doing technical implementations.
McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group fishes, how much in bonus value do you get if you refer a candidate and she is being hired? Country does not matter unless it is Euro zone. Thanks!

Anyone interview for Kearney LCO recently? Saw some posts a few months back, but no updates on how they went. Interviewing next week and looking for insights into types of cases to expect. Kind of hoping there isn’t a market sizing question. Probably wishful thinking.
