How do you approach a situation where an international employee is using poor grammar in emails to a client? It's to the point where the communication is unclear between them and the client? Cont.
I love when individuals say they don’t harbor any misogyny or bias against women, but when something goes wrong on an account or when the client isn’t being the best, it’s always the woman’s fault.
I'm an SA, but so nervous about getting promoted to Consultant. Not sure I have enough experience to engage or lead client engagements or simply successfully complete any tasks. How (con't)....
Deloitte friends: any benefit to exceeding utilization targets? Project requirements mean I can't take pto before YE but I'm taking for 97%...
Got staffed on a rural project. What is the best car rental company in terms of points? I’ve heard National is hard to beat.
On my current project we are working directly for the ceo and coo. I tend to think that whenever you present something to someone at this level, it needs to look good. Even if it’s an early draft things need to be professional. I don’t want to lose their attention or our credibility by showing bad stuff. My teammates on the other hand think it’s ok to show rough work because we are “co-creating” and they are normal people too.... who do you side with
I was placed on PIP due to unavailable projects... and right before my pip period was about the end, I got placed on a project. is it weird I was hoping to get fired and get my severance package?
Level 10 NJ resource, looking for a project asap. Can do (or bullshit really well) just about anything. Have done a bunch of BA and PMO roles since joining in 2015. Low LCR, frugal traveller. Help?
hey all - Would appreciate opinions on two job options 1) current role: Deloitte internal tech strategy (not client facing). Enjoyable, good work/life balance and support from managers to move to other parts of firm in a year or two. 2) potential new role: Accenture tech strategy and advisory. 25k base more + signing bonus. I’m curious if those at Accenture like their jobs, what the work/life balance is, and how likely it is i’ll get pigeonholed there TIA!
TLDR: How do you tactfully tell a client that they need to use headphones when on webex calls?
Very low since I recently got rolled off a project and been on bench for a bit. I don’t know if should start looking for other jobs.. Any words of wisdom for folks who went through a tough patch?
How big of a discrepancy should there be between what you’re being paid and what your agency is charging the client hourly for your services? Or does that not factor in at all?
It will be 4 years in the firm performing analytics, business intelligence & PMO roles including 1.5 years of international client engagement. Is it time to target Manager? How long should I wait?
"Is it as Asperger Syndrome, or legit sociopathy....🤔." Serious question I have about a client. Legit can't tell.
What are my entry opportunities in MBB? I’ve done mostly tech consulting, project management and most recently M&A strategy & execution, non MBA (couldn’t afford one)
Came from audit and went into EY consulting and now is thinking of going into Finance & Accounting in industry. Am I going backwards? Or should I pursuit project management/finance transformation in industry? But I really do not like having process meetings and documentation. I also feel like I'm not familiar with a lot of detailed consulting methodologies/analysis to do well in internal consulting. I feel I like doing more numerical analysis types of tasks
Looking to explore options moving from prod co to client side, any recos on resume writers?
How do you handle when someone briefs your direct report into a new project without talking to you? Person who did it is senior to me but we have the same manager so we are sort of peers. The project makes sense for my direct report but I feel undermined and disrespected for not being consulted. Am I being too sensitive? I don’t want to seem petty but I would never bypass one of my peers like this unless something was time sensitive - even then, I’d send a courtesy note as a heads up.
Do you notice when your coworker isn't wearing makeup? State your gender when you answer pls
PHR or SHRM? I am looking to get more certifications related to HR vs recruiting, but I am unsure on which one is "better" or will help me grow into more of a strategic HR role. Help!!!
Leaving current firm to join client side, am I obligated to disclose any of this? Are policies that prevents us from doing so?
Got advice for some baby fish nervous about graduating to the fishbowl in a pandemic? Bonus points if you have any advice for our baby fish who will need visas to work in the US. Will be sharing with the students on Friday so stay tuned. Thanks everyone!
Would love to speak with anyone who made an exit from consulting shortly after reaching M. How did you think about the following? 1. What functional roles will you actually be good fit for? How does one really know? My resume of case work just confuses me tbh 2. What level should you / did you shoot for? Is AD a realistic goal? 3. What platform did you use to search for jobs? LinkedIn? 3. How did you shortlist your set of target companies? 4. How did you ultimately land the "right" job?
what's the best credit card if one of my biggest spending categories is online shopping?
Agreed to take a 30 minute call despite having scheduled PTO...3 hours later I finally closed my laptop. This job definitely takes whatever you’re willing to give and then some...
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
Some people just have it all. The partner that I work with is on fast track. Became partner in late 30s (no mba). Has multiple kids and is also a talented artist. How do these people manage to have a very good family life, also be on fast track in the firm (which means spending endless hours ) and also do something they love (sing, paint, dance) on the side? I have one kid and I don’t seem to find any time outside of work and spending time with my kid
Anyone work at Wood Mackenzie in their consulting arm. Only have 50-60 people in US, but growing and have ex-MBB folks. Not much info available outside because of the small size
🐟 family, need some suggestions. Wife got offer from PWC (new team; technology focus; 0%-20% travel role) to join San Jose or Chicago office. We are currently in Seattle. What say you??
Got an offer from a big firm. I’m currently working at a small firm. The pay increase would be about 20% not including bonus. My concern with big law is obviously the stress level and billable hours but the small firm life concerns me long term because there’s only currently 6 lawyers and we just lost an office.
Hey Fishes- So my parents got B2 Visa on March 2020 to come for my graduation in May. But due to covid, they couldn’t travel. The visa has duration of 5 years. I heard somewhere that if you don’t travel within 1 year of obtaining visa, you can’t use the remaining visa? Is that true?
Trying to start a new relationship is proving to be difficult with having to travel M-F with this engagement and weather delays. I like this guy 😓
MBB 🐠 a few questions: 1) do you also often have these budget problem discussions at the client not being able to fund the next stage or do they know it‘s gonna be expensive? 2) do engagement consultants do BD in between projects or is it a dedicated acquisition team? 3) how much time do you spend on internal initiatives (and if that depends on the rank)?

You thought the last rounds of layoffs were bad? With continued political instability / uncertainty under Drumpf, companies will stop or slow spending on consulting and a bunch of us will get fired...
