I’m currently working on a project where I’m in a group of four. Someone said “hey I’m in your group”, and I said “sorry, the group is full”, and they said “when did we pick up this other person, we can’t do groups of 5”. They aren’t picking up the hint...
A pharma client requires a urine drug test. Will my ADHD meds make me test "positive"? If so, is there a chance to provide my prescription to a medical officer to clarify? (cont)
That sinking feeling when you're barely holding pace to make your hours and bonus this quarter, then you're volun-told to take on a big nonbillable firm training project. 😭
it’s ridiculous that our worth is determined by reinvest and internal work. i cannot stand that consulting is dual sided with the client work during the day and proposal/product development at night! is it like this in industry jobs?
Slight vent: I had saved up a bunch of PTO to travel a ton this year (long-term project) which obviously got kicked to the dust and I have a bunch expiring this year because of that. Was looking forward to next year (including a family trip that’s been on the calendar for 2 years), but 3 people just left the team, only 1 will be replaced, and 3 more announced parental leave in spring. I have go lives through February and feel like I’m sprinting a marathon and will never get a break now.
Lol my firm halted all sales travel but continued client travel. Just waiting for someone to get sick so I can sleep in my own bed for more than 8 nights a month
I am a beginner DA user and trying to gain experience. I am trying to do a project on ESG for fun, and having some difficulty coming up with a hypothesis. Want to pick your brains and see if I can get started. I have data about CO2 emisiones, electricity usage, air quality, and that’s pretty much it. Using alteryx and powerbi (to visualize results) as I don’t have any other programs. Thanks so much!

Has anyone come across this thing from the client playbook that insists on never using negative words like "don't" or "never" or "can't" in headlines or taglines? So something like "You're not yourself when you're hungry" would be dismissed outright. Who's teaching them this narrow-mindedness?

Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat

I have my first interview with McKinsey coming up, from the practice cases on the website it seems like their case structure is quite standardized. I am particularly struggling with the initial case structure, the solutions are always very targeted and specific. I guess Victor Cheng‘s LOMS ruined me, because I feel like “product“ “company” “competitors” is just not going to cut it... any advice how to become better at MECE and structuring frameworks?
If you move from a position in say Assurance or Tax to a position in IFS, do you keep your base salary or will they lower it to align with the position?
