I need your help guys.
My current organization is reliving me from the job since there is no project they gave me 1 month notice to look for the another apportunity. My last working day will be 18 Nov 21.
Can you please refer or share my CV in your network for the any vacancy.
Current Organization : Intellisoft (Client : Micro Focus)
Current CTC : 6LPA
Current Position: Technology Consultant
Moved client side thinking it was “the dream” and feeling remorse now. Never realized how much I actually liked being on the agency side. Has anyone else been through a similar situation and gone back?
Any stories on the difference between how a client sees their brand compared to the rest of the world? My favorite was the "premium" spirit brand that was considered the well drink by everyone else.
As a PM, I feel as though I should own and manage the product. But Senior Leadership often comes to me with “we’ve promised this to a client so you have to build it”. There’s often little to no discovery of the benefit of building something beyond “client excitement in a meeting”. How do you handle these types of issues, especially when it’s CEO, VP, and Directors owning the roadmap and you are the executer?
A client (not a leader but an analyst is that matters) really yelled at me to a point that other clients on the same team reached out to me and said that I do not deserve to be spoken to like that. I learned later that he was on an improvement plan and that he speak to many (women) like that even his former boss. I was given the option to escalate if needed but I’m not sure if I should. I hate the awkwardness of this.
If I freelanced at Wonderful in LA (formerly Fire Station), does that mean I’ve worked client side? If so, it wasn’t all that different from a traditional ad agency.
Happy Thursday! Is anyone willing to refer for Meta and Microsoft? I'm looking at Program/Project Manager roles. I have over 7+ years of experience & education.
Hi, need a suggestion. I spoke to my manager about not extending my role end date and they said they will have me offboarded as per the role end date on staffit after discussing this with my lead. None of it is in mail. We had discussed this on a call.
Is there a chance they might actually not roll me off the project?
Anyone ever had to back out hours weeks after a project was finished because it went over budget? (Contd.)
In a meeting at the moment, senior client is reading scathing glass door reviews aloud. Wowza. That’s one way to figure out what to work on
In meeting this morning: Male CD grumbled about how “difficult” it is having 2 CDs on a project, meaning he and the woman who had just provided feedback. The woman being the Gcd, his boss. 🤦🏼♀️
I think my partner unfairly blamed me for something small that went wrong with a client and I just feel terrible. I can’t get over how terrible I feel and don’t know what to do..
So much of what we do ends up coming down to chemistry. How do you handle it when a client turns on you, not for the quality or integrity of your work, but because they just don’t like you?
Four bulleits and a steak later and the project seems like it’s in pretty great shape. Consulting is great
What to do you when you have a love-hate relationship with the project you’re on? Client wants to extend for another year.
Staffed on a project which seems to be heading for disaster. Oversold and understaffed. Is my performance going to be negatively impacted by other's failures? Such thing as guilty by association?
Has anyone had experience working with a client who you just can’t connect with? No matter what you do or say, you and the client always butt heads and they always micromanage. It’s really creating a toxic environment where I no longer want to work on this project.
Is it ever appropriate (assuming you two are not close but are friendly) to vent/rant to your career manager about your project? They are the ones that can help you since they’re in charge of your staffing but it may hurt your career advancement in the company.
Working on a strategy project. Six weeks to deliver a data and analytics strategy, playbook, and roadmap. The team of 1M, 1SC, 1C has zero strategy experience and zero background with the client, who’s been on a +3yr data journey. For the first few weeks the team consisted of one person. The SM, who’s been with the client for a long time, is frustrated at how it’s going and now we’re doing line by line workshop slide reviews the night before the workshop.
How do you use all those pillows provided on your hotel bed? Any recommended strategies?

Folks applying to HBS R1, how are y’all doing?
Started at Capgemini. Have my email address, have not updated LinkedIn yet. How can I access the Capgemini bowl?
I was just offered a job with the state government. It’s a pay cut of about $60-80k (and a much lower ceiling) but it means I’d be working 40 hours a week, wouldn’t have to stress about billables or bringing in clients, and would actually get to enjoy my time off again.
I might even start to enjoy litigation again and I’d actually be helping the public instead of defending corporations. But am I crazy for giving up that much money?
Recently applied to a role at Netflix. Does anyone know how long it usually takes to hear back?
Anyone familiar with Alvarez & Marsal’s Valuation Services practice? I had a recruiter reach out but not super familiar with them.

How to stay motivated at current job having put my 2 weeks in? My desire to work has basically fallen off a cliff at this point.
Thoughts on people who cheated in college to get the jobs they are at now? I hear of people lying about their GPA in order to get super competitive jobs out of college and it honestly angers me people would even do this. Do they even do well in the professional world? If it doesn’t matter then should I have cheated? What are your thoughts?
Has anyone started taking antidepressants to cope with work? Wondering if I should quit consulting due to stressful projects…..advice welcomed

What do you think about the Hermes Evelyne? I’m looking for an everyday/casual cross body and am considering the evelyne III PM. Also kinda like the LV speedy 25 bandouliere in damier ebene?? I have a YSL wallet on chain and a vintage Hermes Constance that I carry for more special occasions but I’m looking for something I can wear casually and fit more stuff in (like sunglasses). TIA for any thoughts!
