Cindys is probably the toughest to get into but probably has the coolest "it" bar feel at the moment.

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.

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?

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?

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!
