Was extended but haven’t done any work this week so far. Haven’t been briefed on the new project. Still billing this week, right? Think they do weekly here, not sure tho.
Has anyone used their MBA to break out of agency roles into a client side position, marketing or elsewhere ? If so, how did it go?
6 months on a project , week 5 on bench now, just being told to hang on ...Why does it feel like a lay off conspiracy?
Show me an account person who says they properly push back on the client and I will show you a liar.
Just worked a full 10 hours today due to a market research vendor data collection error. So glad I found out Friday afternoon and we have a client check in tomorrow and I was made to redo a week’s worth of analysis and deck building over the weekend. Taking a break, and a drink, for now. Cheers y’all!
I build products used by many users but had a project added where my team will build an app only for one client. If it’s successful, it may be marketed to similar clients. I am now working as a project manager for this - where the client asks for something and we just build it. It’s completely white glove and will not scale. When I communicate this to executives, the response is “just build what they want”. I’m losing sense of purpose and motivation.
130k with 7 YOE (change management/project management), per FB post, I feel like I’m extremely underpaid. Will similar position in MBB or FAANG pay a lot more (assuming same non technical role)
If you’ve been accepted into GSAP can you take a sabbatical before leaving the firm, or have to stay on revenue generating client until leaving for grad school?
I'm client-side, but work with an awesome media agency. I've been looking at opportunities on their site lately. How weird would it be for a client to apply to a job with the agency they're working with?
Noob question here but realized I sent out an email with a brief typo to a client meeting chain. I said “Out” instead of our”. Is this like a big deal? Normally, I wouldn’t ask this but my brief experience in consulting makes me feel like every thing I do will be under a microscope and my manager will talk to me about this
One hell of a productive ‘vacation day’! Spent catching up on all the training requirements and pending client work! #YayPwC!
Someone let out a silent killer in a meeting with an executive from the client; left everyone guessing and staring at each other throughout. I need a lot of oxygen after all this methane -_-
Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
Anyone else ever feel like a completely inadequate consultant? I'm struggling with performance quality on this project because I just feel dumb and it demotivates me to really strive to improve. Possibly also impacted by burnout because I performed well on other engagements and enjoyed my teams more. Just not sure where to go from here to get where I need to be.
First day of a new project be like:
I don’t work with outside cost consultants often. At what point is it appropriate to bring vendor in to conversation? Having an intro call today with consultant to discuss project and estimate.

Any NYC CD’s who have time to grab a coffee and take a look at our book? We are a junior team from the Netherlands. We just finished our internship at Grey and are on exchange at the SVA.
What do you look for when interviewing a junior associate (2-3 year) for an in-house associate counsel position? What are your expectations with respect to substantive knowledge? I have some interviews for associate counsel positions at some later-stage startup tech firms and would love some advice on how to stand out from all the other biglaw junior associates.
What do you say on application when they ask for supervisor name/title knowing that it varies from project
Hi all!!! Another question for dc biomedical folks! My buddy that has a biomedical engineering PhD and a working visa is looking for a job where he could utilize his biomedical skills. Unfortunately, I'm not very knowledged in healthcare and not sure the opportunities that are friendly to foreigners (dang gov). By chance, anyone have companies they recommend or open to referring? Or even a conversation with my friend?
Any useful advice on coping with feelings of failure? I have invested a lot of time in the past 5 years to specialise in my field (int'l arb), moved countries twice, invested more money than I currently have to requalify where I am now (UK), and still cannot get even a single interview for an associate position. I have been struggling financially for a while now (I am paid half of what a trainee earns in London), and have been feeling quite disappointed with myself. Should I give up? (Cont.)
