Hi, my name is Brian Specht, and I'm a Client Partner / Director at Slalom. I'm here to answer your questions throughout the day related to consulting, esp. technology consulting, so ask away!
Promo candidate for manager this year, engagement partner asked if I want to move to NYC(client office).... I’m SA with 6 years exp, 95k in Midwest, MC in tech enablement .. what can I expect for M1?
My manager is incapable of admitting when he’s wrong, to the point where he’s let me use the wrong formulas on client work because he couldn’t bring himself to admit he’d given me the wrong formula.
A male MD on my project is always cutting off a female team lead. He is incredibly rude and condescending to her and not to other members of the team. Is there anything I can do being so new?
I wish I was quick enough to take a pic, but can someone from McCann please explain to me why I'm watching TBS and just saw a credits shot at the end of a Verizon commercial that listed "Agency: McCann, Client: Verizon" and a bunch of other info I'm sure is not supposed to be on national television?
Client feedback coming in a week late
Hey everyone, as a young strategist, my goal has always been to go client side/in-house. Seems like a different process thought. I’d love any insight or help on maximizing that process. Thanks so much

Is there a consultancy out there that is focused more on delivering products, solutions and agile outcomes rather than getting hung up on reams of PowerPoint slides and decks after decks that just say the things client might want to hear with tons of micro level management of the language? Please let me know because I am at the end of my tether. Do I need to move to industry? I love the variety of consulting but tired of playing language and graphics games...
Ah, the Tuesday after presidents day email from client, "I hope you had a good long weekend."
Guys am really concerned about the EPB deduction.. I still have 75 days.. in NP But the responses am reading in various groups about EPB deduction is hilarious.. Thinking to get it confirmed from HR...!! If he says it will get deducted, I'll ask to shift me on bench as I don't see any point in working for a minute more for current project.. Or else I would really not give damn about the work.. Just login and loggoff.. Any suggestions PS: Many post suggest EPB from Mar 21' till LWD deducted HCL T
Let’s get some salary transparency going. Job title. How much you make. Do you enjoy your job.
Met this guy through an app; been talking for 2-3 weeks on text / phone. We are not in the same city so he’s taking a trip from SD to Phx (my client loc). He sent me his itinerary and now am not sure
Hi fishes I'm at analyst level in RFA and got rating "Consistent with peers" in client and leadership both. I had great feedback and performance in my project. Can I discuss this with anyone before hikes are out ? I feel I deserve more (I'm kind of one of the top performers )
And so it begins. Random urgent email from a Partner I’ve never met in a practice not related to ours needing someone this weekend to agree to go on site at a client on the opposite coast for the foreseeable future to lead a project. The client wants one person even though the Partner admits that it should be more than one practice, let alone person to do the work right - but we are giving the client what they want. I am stopping myself from writing back with an immediate “HE!! NO” 🤪
Auditors; are you working remotely or are you back at client locations and where are you located in the US? If you're back on location, is it limited or back to pre-pandemic facetime?
We need a daily venting-dump post. I'll go first: my client doesn't know what they want but keep wanting to change scope bcos..why not?
test on 1.1.5!

Chicago People: I am currently unemployed. Looking for a job. Lease ends at the end of this month. IG I can’t find a job, will have to move across the country to back home. I don’t want to travel and I don’t want to leave Chicago. Anyone know of places hiring in Chicago? I have close to 10 years of healthcare experience. I am open to consulting or industry roles. I can even change industries or have a temporary job till I find a permanent job. Anyone have suggestions? Thank you.
