My GenX boss gets LIVID that my team is not an off-the-cuff phone culture. She has a sales background and mine is straight delivery/implementation. Just venting.

Just wanted to say, I visited Atlanta last weekend with some friends and the black excellence was such an unexpected and welcoming culture shock. From the min I landed I was not a minority in literally any location we went to. It made me realize that there’s a deferent relaxing feeling when you truly blend in.
Considering offers from BCG Platinion and Salesforce right now. Still trying to get a grip on community and culture of both places. You find some pretty bad reviews for Platinion online but I always wonder whether the people who are content actually go out of their way to write reviews... Anyone with experience at either?

I’m a first year and fucked up big time. The client doesn’t know about this but a senior associate was furious. I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.

A month ago my boss told me I was getting a promotion and a raise. My raise was effective May 15th, and it has been reflected in my pay. He told me to keep it on the down low since there were no(cont)
Case interviews scare me. I know I’m in consulting but before the interview for my current role I had never done a practice case. When I was prepping I barely ate for 2 weeks because I was so stressed and nervous. I have case interviews coming up for positions I really want and I’m freaking out again. I like consulting but don’t know if I can do that all over again just to *maybe* get the job. Any words of encouragement or tips to get me through this and prepare thoroughly? Anything helps
