What’s the longest doc review project you’ve been on and how the hell did you maintain your sanity?
Help estimating a non-traditional AD freelance rate? Deets: I’m technically a Jr. AD, but I pivoted to advertising after working in marketing + graphic design for 6 years. I’m nearly finished with portfolio school and my portfolio site was strong enough to land me a great internship where I’ve done client-facing work for big brands. Does this make a difference in what I can charge for hourly work? Or would it be considered junior rates regardless? Thanks in advance for reccs/advice! 🙏🏻

Is there a best practice for categorising your experiences on your external/public/LinkedIn type resume? Do you group it by project or by the type of work you did? Any other ideas?

What project mgmt software does your agency use (if any) and what is your honest opinion of it? Context: current agency doesn’t have one and the lack of structure is painful. Hoping to pitch a few options to leadership for 2022 implementation
I am new to consulting, and I just witnessed (virtually) a staffing conversation between a Partner and Director that a new project was to be staffed based first by identifying how to meet a quota for “diversity consultants” first. Please educate me. Is this the new normal? I am all about diversity in the work place, but I never encountered staffing by an internal diversity quota before.

I’m on a 10-day solo retreat in the middle of nowhere. I’m reading The Autobiography of Malcom X. I’m not sure how I’m going to make it back to work, y’all. The pandemic has allowed me to “be” without the gaze of whiteness. I’m tempted to walk away from the Corporate world and all that comes with it. I don’t find it validating and it feels like the hamster wheel of meaninglessness. Am I alone? How do you deal? Do you have an exit plan/strategy?
How much of a value-add are Exec MBAs? I've not come across many of them. Been in IB for 9 years (no MBA) and wonder if it's something I do around the time I try to move up?

Any thoughts on praying in the office? I’m in the London office and because of some confident bothers, we were able to use conference rooms to pray. Now in my new firm, I’m the only Muslim and so when I do go in, find it hard to find a place. I don’t want to announce it and make a big deal, just want to pray quietly, otherwise I’d have to save my salah for home. WFH has changed this in such a good way but wanted to see if anyone has similar experience or tips?

Hi all, Views on the below- We must stop glamorizing working for over and above the contractual hours if there isn't a system for fair overtime pay. Things would have been way different if there was a strong employee rights union.

(First ever post) I originally I joined this app to learn from others in consulting on a variety of topics (gender perspectives, comp, tips/ recommendations). Ever since downloading, I see more hatred and people making judgements on others with little context. Consultants are supposed to problem solvers but instead of people sharing perspectives I feel I’m back on Twitter reading threads that only create hate. Anyone else feel that way?
Sitting in the middle seat. Guy on my left is significantly obese, probably a medical condition. Guy on right, his email signature says Weight Watchers. I want to introduce them to each other.
I got the covid booster and the flu shot (on different arms, but they can be on the same arm). As someone that went through the IVF process fearing a breakthrough case and positive COVID test result that would cancel the cycle, this is going to give me peace of mind going forward.
