We did this when a larger pharma company bought our client. We kept the account. We had better TV rates and better performance numbers.

Near my client I found this place called topchef that makes fresh meals. I pick up on Monday and microwave them until Thursday. Helps me portion control and it's better than the frozen meals at the grocery store since it has lower sodium and no preservatives. They are cooked fresh weekly. I put in my order every Thursday. They have a good menu online

Am I supposed to care more when something goes wrong? I feel like ppl act like it’s the end of the world if the client does something materially wrong. I just think it’s on the client and move on

I am contracting for PWC on one of their engagements. I just started the background check process which is 2 weeks for pwc and 3 weeks for client to complete. At the same time, I am waiting for an offer from two other companies for something full time. How bad is it to ditch PWC gig during the background screening process (I have already started other on boarding steps). Also is it professional to tell the other companies I am waiting for another offer and need more time to decide.

What do you do to motivate yourself when you need to work on the weekend? I’m having a hard time getting started today (doesn’t help that I’ve worked every weekend for months now). Part of it is that I left the hard part of a project for last, but mostly I just don’t feel like working on a Sunday.

I am an experienced consultant working at Deloitte. A recruiter reached out to me from PWC for a manager position. I have over three years of experience outside of US and a Masters degree from an accredited university in US. What do I need to know to respond to this recruiter. Obviously in the motive here to join would be a higher base salary.
