Does anyone count the time required to complete client specific expenses as billable time? It just took me 2 hours to complete 3 weeks worth of expenses!

That doesn't sound like the average time ... you either have a shitload of expenses or are slow.

We are doing actuals on the project and I have to Uber every day. So all of them show up in my expenses.

Yep, took me about that time when I was at KPMG. Awful!

Hell yes charge that!

How would Uber ever be reimbursed as something other than actual?

I meant actuals for meals, and additionally, I have a lot of Uber rides. Hope that makes it clear.

👌

Enter your expenses daily. Way better than waiting for the buffer and having to try to remember all the details. Entering multiple weeks at once is terrible.

Anybody else have any fear/anxiety around flying? This just randomly developed out of nowhere a couple years ago (I used to love flying!) and I don't know how to fight it as I start having to travel here and there for client site work.

I know that realistically the chances of a plane crash are super low (not afraid of driving and that's much higher), but for some reason my mind won't get off the "but not zero" part and I just get so tense and scared.

Any advice would be highly appreciated!

Genuine question, do you think people feel superiority or inferiority complex based on what consulting firm they are employed at?

When having a genuine conversation and disagreement me with another consulting firm sr manager while working with the same client, he said to me “just because you passed your mckinsey interview does not make you any smarter than me.” I agree with this statement in principle but was surprised a more tenured colleague at a competing firm said this to me.

How should I chase these clients?

1: has been cat and mouse with me since August. Has a huge protection need but never commits

2: existing client reached out to me for private health care as he’s moving to a company who doesn’t provide. He starts the new gig next Monday.

Both were keen, we spoke last Friday. Both went quiet I chased on Wednesday but nothing.

Unfortunately I’m not getting this type of support from my company right now and struggle with the less obvious parts of the job

This is mostly a vent but I'm spiraling and need help.
I'd been lobbying for a promotion to VP for literally years. I finally got it this summer. Immediately afterwards, a new position was created and filled - EVP.
This new EVP position is at our partner agency but oversees ALL work on this client (incl mine). So my VP stature suddenly dropped in importance.
Even worse, the new EVP came in guns blazing, trashing my work and saying it was not up to his standards.
I am devastated. What do I do?
