Gah being the subcontractor on a project where the prime clearly doesn't give a 💩 sucks! Been sitting here waiting for an email for 3 days while they ignore us, and we can't even bill in the meantime

@EY1- in some federal contracts the govt will only give the contract to a small business. So the "small business" gets the contract then subcontracts the work out to Deloitte. Other times it may be operations and maintenance work and Deloitte is used as a subcontractor for short term advisory stuff.

While what D1 said is very true and this is a fed project, in this case it's because we're not in the space and are still trying to build up our quals.

Got ya. Well sounds like fun!

A white friend is looking to buy an apartment. One apartment is in an older building in an established neighborhood. It doesn't have an in-unit washer/dryer. The other apartment is in a brand new building in a historically black neighborhood that has seen a lot of gentrification but it's still near a project with a gym, a nice roofdeck with a grill and in-unit washer dryer and costs $100k less. She's considering the first place despite it being more expensive and older. Racism is expensive.

My first holiday season in-house after a couple of decades in private practice, doing the same kind of transactional work that I’ve always done. My year is functionally done. No one else is around or working. I’ve been so conditioned to expect to grind out through the holidays that it makes me think of how Brooks in Shawshank had become “institutionalized.” I only worked hard the last couple of days because I set some deadlines so as to get things tied up before the holidays - the old mindset!
