I have to plan several large scale events for the client that are happening within a month. What software can help with managing/planning events?
Is notice period two weeks? or 2 working weeks. If you resign during last couple of weeks of the year, when project and Deloitte is shut down- what would happen?
Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true? Continuing below:
Nice way to tell your client and her marketing team that they all schedules too many meetings and your teams can't get their god damn work done.
Just got off a two hour workshop with a client and was too scared to say anything and speak up even though I probably had good points. How do you get over the fear of being wrong or sounding stupid? I feel like I let my team down.

A Partner reached out to me and mentioned I was staffed on a project. Two days and Career team still doesn’t reach out to me confirming my project. I’m busting my ass, before the Partner tells me that I would not be billable till we get the internal approval and I should charge my timesheet to offline work. This is my first job. Should this have happened? Can I do anything now? What can I do to manage this going forward?
Is there such a thing as a staffing agency or consultancy that helps strategy leaders/innovators find freelance work? Asking for a friend who is looking for a project or two.
As I announced to my client during dinner at an Italian restaurant, "me likie breadsticks, me likie breadsticks!"
Aaaaand I just got an email on my LinkedIn account from one of my client stakeholders on this project saying he finds me “rather attractive” 🙄😫 It never ends
Do you let your manager know that you are working on multiple BD on top of your project work? Or it's just expected and you don't talk about it?
17 years in 850 in production 12 years to go. Never lost a client in a cfp conversation. I make educating myself a priority. Any reason whatsoever I should put myself through the cfp process?
*Sigh*. Another day, another account person who thinks that retained projects = free projects for the client (and that fee estimates don’t need to be approved/tracked internally). 🤯
Cute client guy was definitely flirting today. Bumped into him at lunch, he introduced himself and invited me to eat with him but I had to decline to make a meeting :( What should I do now?
Favorite pop punk hit from childhood that you blast through your earbuds while you brood silently about the client pissing you off
Opinions: I have self-harm scars on my arms from when I was a teenager, is it inappropriate/unprofessional to wear short sleeves and leave them exposed at the office or client site?

Business ideas in these trouble times? Either for profit or for impact. Thinking about Covid19 of course (Healthcare, quarantine, wfh...) but the recession (unemployment) or future end of recession..
Attempting to renter the workforce after a 2 year hiatus due to health issues followed by the pandemic. During this time off I had minor success running a small business, but not enough to pay the bills. I have 3 YOE, 1.5 as a Loan Officer, and 1.5 as a consultant within compliance and Fintech. Please let me know of any fully remote positions, or hybrid positions based out of Chicago or Milwaukee. I live in Dubuque IA, so for in office work it would have to be in Dubuque. TIA!

Declined a job offer with 18% raise a few weeks ago because I wasn’t ready to move companies. Starting to regret it but took a risk hoping I’ll love my next project. How will I know if I made the right decision?
Is it normal for you to ever be “ghosted” by your administration? I feel like I’m constantly emailing, calling, texting, and meeting with them and nothing gets done. As soon as I leave their office, I’m ignored. If I email/text them a question or request, I’m ignored unless it benefits them. This is at a district where I travel between 3 schools and have 3 principals. They’re all like this and communication is especially important since I have to travel.
