If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼

I’m all for sleeveless outfit (as long as not overly revealing) is acceptable for women in non-client facing video calls but interestingly I’ve never seen any man going sleeveless in front of the camera (myself included). Are guys just less comfortable in this situation (again, same situation as girls - internal calls, working from home, and working out or doing house chores in between meetings... etc)? How do you feel when you see your guy coworkers in sleeveless outfits?

Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?

Hi Fishes I joined EY GDS this month but not liking the work in the assigned project. It is not as per my expectations and not suitable as a developer. I have another offer from Bristlecone. Any suggestions? Should I continue working with EY GDS to have a brand name or switch to Bristlecone company (high probability of good project) Thanks in advance!
Are consultants only seemingly more capable (at times) because we dedicate all our client-facing time on a single project vs. juggling multiple projects? All my client's leadership teams seem like a mess but I think it's just due to their lack of opportunity to focus on anything for long enough to know what's going on. Am I thinking about this completely wrong?

Has financial security made you lazier? I’m nowhere near FIRE but I finally have a little F U money and have found that I’m no longer willing to work outside 9-5. I’m on a project now that’s a dumpster fire and I’m just like “meh roll me off” instead of trying to take ownership and get things back on track. Anyone relate?
I have been assigned 50% staffing but my Project manager expects me to put in 100% time as I am not staffed on any other project. Is it fair for him to expect this? I am upset as this affects my utility rate.

Where do you work, and what educational benefits does your employer provide? Currently working full time and taking some classes toward my master’s. I’ve been at my firm for a little over 2 years as it was my first gig out of undergrad. It provides an annual stipend for education, but I’m bored, unchallenged, unfulfilled, and underpaid. I want to explore what other companies offer to make an educated decision as to whether I should go elsewhere. TIA!

How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed. But she is constantly asking me to get on Zoom after work hours (8-9 pm) to walk her through stuff. Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.
