like

Client concerns- no tangible results, funky smell, director picks his left ear constantly throughout a meeting, hate the black and white color scheme, too aggressive

like

Evidence- promised $1.7m savings, currently at -$600k... funky smell- cfo issued a companywide memo to keep febreeze in all conference room at all times after the first meeting with director, ear picking- multiple witnesses

like

Billing retention - client proposes withholding last 2$m of fees and enacting clawback clauses in contract, potential litigation if continued involvement of lead Partner, direct billing for all fumigation services from independent contractor.

like

Proposed Solution - Vendor team to be given notice on 11/21. 24h to turn around. EY asked to stand up take over team to begin immediately after thanksgiving.

like

Evidence - reduced productivity over last two periods, additional client costs incurred through inferior vendor resources, leadership attention accounts for <5% of onsite hours but >25% of billings.

like

Nice! Hate those guys... always nosing in

like

Additional Client Concerns - responsible partner not returning calls. Client CEO increasingly frustrated and prepared to make market statement either Friday or Monday. Conscious of likely adverse impact to vendor - client believes little choice.

Remember when Fauci said we didn't need masks then said we did but only N95 masks, but then said any face covering will work. Then said if you're vaccinated you need to double mask. Then said you can single mask. Then said no masks if you're vaccinated. Now the CDC says you need a 3rd vaccine shot to "greatly" prevent delta variant. But no, EVEN if you're vaccinated you can get Covid. Like f off. This is not exact science clearly. I have taken 2 shots but now I refuse to listen to this BS.

Applying for a couple of things and randomly decided to google myself to see what recruiters might see. Had helped a friend out way way back with a school project and came across her blog post about it on her personal website in which she says the reason she asked me to help is because she trusted my opinion since I am a “harsh critic.” I think she meant keen critic or that this was supposed to be a positive but to me, this reads as an insult (continued in comments)

Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!

Need a gut check here. Got an offer from Deloitte for $7k (~9%) more than I currently make at the same consultant level. Doesn’t seem reasonable to make that jump for no title increase and not a huge salary increase, right?
