I have a coworker on a project who is not contributing their fair share... I'm afraid I'm already viewed as too aggressive in the group so I haven’t been vocal about it. I think I may stay silent.
Checked into hotel. Went to hotel bar. Charged drinks to the room. Asked for a room change because the view was shit. Let's see if I get charged. *I mean my client gets charged
It's a little too early in the project to be receiving an ALL CAPS email. Especially on a weekend.
When you hear your manager discussing how he "isn't too thrilled about the idea of a project in Dubai..." And you fight the urge to jump up and down screaming "PUT ME IN, COACH! PUT ME IN!"
When you have to plan a sneaky escape from client site for lunch in order to avoid another day of eating cafeteria food at your desk.
When your client sponsor was previously a consultant and thinks they can manage your team 🐢
That moment when your client tells the engagement partner of your project that if his son weren't married he would try to set you up with him...
"There's been another scope change from the client...they no longer want this thing you've spent the last 3 weeks on" 😀🔫
Met my boyfriend at my previous client. Now he's working for Accenture too...now we crossed paths again at the same client/and same team. Anyone else meet their significant other at a client site?
When the proposal says two associates and an associate consultant will be staffed full time but then you find out it's really just you staffed on the project...
I have the option of staying on a tech project that I don't like for 4 months, or roll off early and try to get on an interesting strategy project that starts in a month. Should I take the risk?
So, you need warm bodies on a project? And a "throat to choke"? When did I get a job in Dexter's kill room?
That awkward moment when you're sitting in Orals for an RFP and the client says they don't understand what role you've been brought in to discuss...
When your project isn't that demanding so you're inundated with endless admin tasks... #holidaydinner #teamevent #teamholidaydinnerevent
Lol to when everyone at your client company leaves the office at 6pm sharp without fail..and you're there til 9
When a client repeatedly insists that a vendor belongs "in the negative bottom quartile"...

I’m trying to pivot careers to UX or maybe Product Management from Consulting (tech implementation). Would a UX boot camp help me? I am applying to PM roles, but I’m getting so many rejections, it’s hard to believe the job market is booming.
OP is the OG.
Everyone says there r great exit opportunities for consultants. The tech companies find the work that I have done unappealing (not a shocker as I've hated doing it) Any tips to get into Product Mgmt?
