All of the Partners and MDs I know are depressed and overworked and very clearly show this 😂

On top of that I also find a good amount of them seem to enjoy making bad taste jokes about overworking their people

Seriously - never heard anyone say something like that, and I would be able to stifle an eye roll.

My neighbor is a Partner and he’s always happy. I imagine most people would be if they enjoy their job and are pretty good at it.

What partners are you working with?? I see very few that seem happy.

I’m happy and I like my job, but I’m not a freak. I can’t imagine saying anything that insipid. Nor can I picture any of my colleagues saying #soblessed.

Sorry this is a vent 😓 found a roomie online and moved in 6 months ago. She was extremely nice first few months. Of late, she keeps commenting on my looks like ‘oh you should totally be grateful to ur boyfriend for liking you amidst all the much prettier women out there’ or ‘oh yours was not a early promotion so it’s just normal’. I have always nice been despite knowing that she has the pattern of being the other woman. Should I move out ? Put a lot of money and effort setting up the place😢

My male creative partner (copy writer) might get the boot soon. He’s lazy, slow and does not get the work done. Even when he does, it’s not very good work. We started at the same time and I recently found out he makes more $$ than me! I’m hoping to ask for a raise and want to ask for more than what he makes because I work significantly harder and produce better work. Curious what your guys’ thoughts are on how much is too much when asking for a raise? I’ll be at my company a year this summer.

What percentage of raise have you asked for when going from Senior to Supervisor?

Throwing this out there - I've transitioned into being a client running IMO/SMO and it's 1000x better. You kickstart the value creation initiatives mapped out with corp dev and do the cool initial brainstorming, then hand it off when execution gets heavy, work very closely with BU GMs to plan product integration roadmaps and commercial integration, work with G+A leads on Day 1/2 op models, then fling all the garbage work, PMO, status reporting to consultants. 10/10 recommended becoming a client.

How about job stability at PWC AC ? Will they ask to leave in case we are not able to find or get allocated to a project within 3 months of joining?

How do PPMDs make sure when you are replacing an incumbent, you don't get handed down a broken system ? What sort of knowledge transfer and contractual framework do you get the client to agree to and how do you negotiate on that? I feel clients are not always honest and hide a lot of landmines which a consulting company can walk into and blamed for it.

Coming up for review soon and have been working for 6 month after an extended leave. The company was supportive but as a result of the leave I have not had a raise in 2 years.
