Welcome to Consulting. 101: If you drag out basic tasks, you get more billable hours. More billable hours means Deloitte management get richer. What, so you think we're here to help clients and complete tasks as effectively as possible? 🤔

@D2: Indeed. Weak pipeline led to PMO. Looking for the next actual growth opportunity.

If you have time you need to be working on internal opportunities and capabilities. If you are board it's only because you have not reached out to get involved with other things

I'm trying to find internal things but I'm struggling. Any advice on finding things? Coach, RP, and other partner all have come up empty.

This isn't normal. Just enjoy the slowness while you can. Or perhaps your vertical isn't like the rest of us.

Ask te SM for more work tell them your bored 😐

If you can send me a private message I would tell you where to go

@M2 I've enjoyed it but after a couple months I'm so very bored. It's left plenty of time to browse openings elsewhere though. @M3 Tried but a lot of the work (finance) is well outside my specialty (technical). Helped where I could buy reality is other than occasional work I'm stuck sitting around for many hours waiting for others. @P1 Drop me a burner email?

If you want to be plugged in send me your pwc email on twitter ... twitter handle @hiddenPwc
