Big 4 folks how much of the work at your strategy practices are PMO type of work? I feel like most of the projects in my firm are just being a PMO for hire for a client project. No real strategic work a such. I'm still entry level though so just want to see if this is how the industry will be going ahead.

I don't have PMO work but haven't done any strategy work as well.. I really get the feeling that apart from few projects in MBB all other firms have just namesake strategy roles to entice B school grads. I am from the so called Deloitte S&O 😅

Hahah - you and me both sister!!

I don’t think we have a lot of PMO work. Having said that, I have only done 4-5 pure play strategy work in my last 6 years. These were 6-8 weeks growth/ product launch projects.

Outside of your day job, how do you learn the high level technical aspects of salesforce? I’m a functional lead at a big 4 consulting company on a long term project (more strategy and PM work) but want to have better technical understanding. I don’t want to be a tech lead, but enough to have educated conversations with clients (architecture, data model, integrations, privacy, refresh specifics, etc), and potentially work towards Solution Architect. Any advice would be highly appreciated!

Without giving away too much detail, I’ve been managing a project for months that’s visible to the company. I’ve loved doing it. Have learned a lot, given license to plan a lot of it without much oversight and have been told what a great job I’ve done.
Then awhile back new management comes in who wants to put their stamp on it, change it up. Fine, I expected that. (Note, these folks are NOT my managers; my manager is more senior but these folks do not report to my manager).

Hi fishes, officially have a 1 year work ex at ZS now. It's still weird that I am still assigned only this one project for that long and my manager doesn't even need a feel to give me another project.

I have no problem with less workload , but the learning part has perpetually stopped on this project attributed to its cyclic nature. Also i am afraid they will promote me late, even if it's their fault that they didn't give me any other project on side.
