I’ve done several representations for purchasers just to make sure they are adequately represented and working with their realtor. Recently had a potential client reach out to be their personal representative of a large home purchase (foreign individual) without a realtor. Is there an industry standard fee? I was leaning 1-2% of purchase price.
My manager told me right before our client presentation to “sound happy” when I present... Apparently he thinks I sound too serious... Not sure how to feel about it.
Has anyone traveled to Cincinnati from SF? Any advice? This is my first travel project and trying to ask around for some advice..
Cut from a project, covid19 impact. If you need experience, pm, diverse industry, technical and business.
The project I’m on at work right now is actually pretty interesting, but I’m feeling so burnt out and uninspired that everything I have to do feels like a drag. Wish I could feel excited to design. I miss that feeling.
Will d usi hold internal technical interviews for (Solution Advisor - cyber infra) project allocation ? I'm a lateral hire and yet to be assigned with a project. Kindly enlighten me. Also how many days can one be on the bench usually?
This is about internal reviews. The one that happens before client presentation. In my experience, these reviews have become very tasking over the last few years. Everyone is riding on assumptions. Biases trickle in. “Hey what about my idea?” is often thrown in. It maybe a thing in my agency. But if its happening at your place as well, how do you guys tackle it? It often happens that the client refers to the lack of idea that dies in these internal reviews. Any words of wisdom? Any insights?
Going to tell Leadership this week that I want to be rolled off. Another project has requested me and that project is better aligned to my career. Any advice to have a smooth conversation?
Every data science project:
How do I combat power struggles when the PM brings on someone at the same level as me after I was leading the project? They are now saying this person is the lead now—we are both at the same level.
Having the last week off has really shown me the toll this client has taken on my life in 3 months. My last client, I would have been bummed to take a week off, this one... Dreading going back on Tues
“Why are you so cranky right now? Cheer up, the sun is out today!” -PM to Creative Director 10 mins after telling him the client killed a project he spent 3 months working on due to budget cuts

Have you guys gotten client travel reductions/restrictions even on domestic US projects due to the coronavirus? Will most of consulting be work from home in the next few months?

Anybody know of any sexy deck ;) examples I can find online? Working on a side project and my firm’s templates are hideous
I’m inundated with client work. Definitely working >12 hour days resulting in no time to offer support with RFPs, practice development, etc. I feel like this will work against me come promo. Thoughts?
I love when an agency wins a pitch and their hardcore excitement about the victory doesn’t match up to the client name: HELL YEAH LINKEDIN!! WE JUST WON SNACKABLES!!!
Does anyone have experience working as a financial advisor if so, which company is best to work for when it comes to autonomy, salary, benefits?
So, 100% of the times I’ve got further in the interview process and I’ve got an interview with the ECDs or CCOs, I got the job. Always. Except for the 2 last ones. And the only difference was...cont
Has anyone worked as a case interview coach after leaving consulting? Looking to FIRE and wondering what sort of supplemental income I could get by case coaching a few hours/week. Do you think $30-40k/year is doable?

How do you all handle tantrums from your toddler during dinner? We finally made it out to have a socially distanced dinner with a female friend of my husband. My toddler started getting really fussy during dinner and my spouse continued his conversation -not wanting to leave. I took the baby on a brief walk but that wasn’t really helping. Spouse still did not want to cut dinner short (we were already on dessert) and he kept his conversation going. I sat down and baby is grabbing plates (cont)
Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say

Happy Friday fishes! I landed my first product manager interview next week - coming from a non technical background. How to best prepare for it? Any resources you would recommend (aside from cracking the PM interview)? TIA!
I received an offer from a quant fund. My offer letter doesn’t explicitly state my role/position, it is nyc based, and that it’s full time. It also doesn’t provide benefits breakdown, just a blanket statement that I’m eligible. I’ve spoken to the recruiter about these items, but general response is that this is standard for the company. To me this is all very strange and I feel it should be defined more. Does this sound normal to others? Can’t tell if i should push on this more or leave it.
WFH be like...
W00t just hit my 100k CSR! Where should I go?
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
