When you have to plan a sneaky escape from client site for lunch in order to avoid another day of eating cafeteria food at your desk.
Flying from my client site to Kentucky for the Taylor Swift concert. Nothing like getting ready for a concert at the airport...
That moment when your client tells the engagement partner of your project that if his son weren't married he would try to set you up with him...
Opinion: relationship (unspecified degree of commitment) with someone on your project team...yea or nay?
My PM skipped out two days this week with the client-side group at "an offsite meeting". Tons of meetings had to be shuffled. I found out they went to a spa.
"Project manager" at the client responds to an email from 3 weeks ago asking for an update. Read the latest email in the chain, dumbass. #notthatdifficult
Changing my IM/calendar status to "busy" for the rest of the day so I can listen to Adele's new album uninterrupted by the client
I love the smell of client value creation in the morning. It's an interesting mix of analyst sweat and tears.
That awkward moment when you're sitting in Orals for an RFP and the client says they don't understand what role you've been brought in to discuss...
For the past 2 months I have had trouble accessing any non-client or company websites. I thought the client was blocking me. Turns out it was "Websense" that the company installed that was blocking me
That moment when you dial in to a client call remotely and they have printed agendas for the live team and no one sent an electronic version to you. #wtfisgoingon
When the client sponsor asks you to move today's meeting to tomorrow. I was supposed to fly home in 3 hours. 😞
Accidentally asked the client to massage me. I meant for her to message me, but hey, I could use a massage, too.
Trying to convince the SM on this new engagement I'm staffed on to send me to the client in Tampa. Audit consultant = remote work 😒
Can you imagine the fuckery that would happen if a client looked at all of these posts?! Hahaha #valuecreation
New in consulting and on the beach after my first 6 month long project. Makes me wonder if I bombed it? Anyone ever had those thoughts?

If Donald trump works from Trump Tower two days a week, is he remote and WFH? As his client, I am not ok with that since his billable rate is really high.
Gotta love a properly staffed project: finished it in half the time and it was fixed price 💵💵💵💵 My MD will be able to buy his butler’s butler a second Porsche.
I know as consultants we feel pressure to work regardless of health & feel that a few missed days means everything stops. The reality is projects don't stop because you aren't there. Take care of you!
I want you to know - I am here for the long race. Today was your day. Tomorrow will be mine. See you in the field
Currently a tech consultant and looking to transition to strategy. Any one want to earn a referral bonus?
When you live in NYC and love how everything is almost as easy as living in a hotel. Not sure how the rest of you do it.
