So Slalom is supposed to have more reasonable working weeks - but if it’s still Consulting, what is removed to account for these lower hours worked? You just leave the client site earlier?
Software Program Managers. How do you track timelines/status? The client doesn't use any software, looking for Excel templates suggestions.
Does PwC remove you immediately from a client project once you give your 2 weeks notice? Not going to a competitor and doing something completely outside of my field.
"Honestly I don't think this project adds any value, but we sold the project already so we have to do something"
I’m M4 and don’t feel confident going into new projects. I don’t have depth and every new project requires me to scramble and learn how to proceed. Moreover, there is a trend of not staffing in pairs/teams but placing a person as an individual contributor at the client increasing risk of failure. How do you deal with this? I don’t feel confident building my SM case because I feel I don’t have any expertise and I can’t guide teams on how to get started on different project types. Any advice?
I'm a Senior Analyst rolling off my project next month. I've only done BA roles so far (1 yr 8 mos in)...what other roles can I do that's similar? I'd like to be more technical and gain hard skills...
Just got staffed on a suicide mission to basically roll out a consulting tool that no one at the client knows how to use or reconcile the outputs. Oh and it has to be rolled out in like 4 weeks. Tool took 5-6 months to build. Anyone have thoughts and prayers?

Partners: How would you recommend staff to respond to this type of behavior? If you had a client say something like this to your staff, whether direct comment on their sexuality, or generally, wwyd? https://joinfishbowl.com/post_qssw3a
PPD got annoyed when I told that I had to skip one of d many client meetings due to severe shortness of breath. Instead of any compassion, he asked, "who attended". Unfortunately, SM also didn't.Contd

I’ve been in consulting for years & every time I’m about to start a new project, I get really nervous. It gets better after I dive in but I hate that initial feeling. Does this happen to anyone else?
One thing I love as a consultant, when I fly I listen to all these new best albums all the way through and really try to get a handle on what the artists vision was for their project
Something has been in the client court for months. It has a year-end due date for actionability. They finally sent it across day after XMas :/
What’s the most cringe-worthy micro managing thing you’ve experienced by a manager? I’ll go first. My manager always asks me to screenshot chats from my client and send to him, instead of taking my word for it.
Moving from NY to Frankfurt, Germany. What are my chances of finding a position in covid times? Are big law firms in Frankfurt hiring non-fluent German speakers? Any leads? Thanks!
I recently joined a company and I’m liking it so far. Recruiter from faang reached out to me to set up an interview. What’s the best way to tell them - not now but reconnect later?
Lately I’ve started feeling like I’m shedding friends at a high rate. There are very few people that I genuinely want to hang out with anymore and that number keeps dwindling with time. Cont...

I am trying to build my quiet area in my classroom. I am having a hard time finding things that I feel are appropriate for this area during this pandemic. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please and thanks!!! :)
Leaving before senior title at PwC, environment was toxic and was losing my self-confidence. So I decided to turn in my two weeks, but now I am being offered a new client by partner. What should I do?
Saw this on social media today 😅. I hope to come out 10 pounds slimmer... Which one are you? Or which one is your partner? 1 & 2 apply to males & Non Gender ... as well.
Just got laid off and I-94 is expiring on August 5th (based on my passport’s expiry date). I have a new passport and it looks like I’d have to file for Form I-539 to extend the I-94 and avoid being out of status. Can anyone confirm if this is the case? Filing fee is pretty expensive so just want to make sure it’s correct. Thanks!
How early did you guys start going to school tours? Also, silly question but what did you wear to the tours?
For Kellogg’s Video essay: do you get the exact questions on the website? If yes, why do they give you 20 seconds to think about an answer? If no, how do they differ?
