Partners, a program manager running a large, newer account (with a lot of potential) is rolling off, and I have been asked to be the replacement. Any advice for taking over a new team at a new client?
Last min requests for proactive decks to show the client ‘we’re doing stuff’ that have to be worked on over the weekend only to be not used the following week are really getting to me. It’s a wonderful way to let employees know you don’t care about them while having mandatory meetings so the company can tell employees how much the agency cares about them.

Hey Freelance fishies! Just entered this bowl and also am relatively new to the world of freelance. I make 3D virtual tours. But I haven’t had all that much luck finding clients. At least not a consistent enough client base. Covid has made it complicated to stop in and talk directly with people and because this service is so visual, my experience with cold calling is that it doesn’t work in this particular instance. But I’m not getting many responses from emails either. Any advice?
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?

I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?
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)....
A little bit sad that I'm rolling off a project tomorrow because that means I probably won't see the Grindr boy I've been hooking up with at the hotel since the beginning of the project again 😞
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)?

Hi All, I have a fully furnished, sun soaked, art-filled 1 BR apartment available for month-to-month rental indefinitely. The space is located right in the heart of Union Square.

Building: full service, door man building with elevators and laundry. (Continued in comments)

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
