6 months in at a new firm. 4th year attorney. Completely new practice area from what I did previously. The partner often sends the random potential client call ins my way. Many times, they have questions related to things I’ve never done and he only provides guidance if I can pull him away from something else to ask. I’m super low on hours but feel that it would be ethically wrong to take on a case involving an issue Im totally unfamiliar with and not confident handling. Wrong approach?

What are your opinions on having a website? I feel like it could go a long way me an identity. Is it necessary to have one right off the bat or did you wait until you had a solid client base first?
First time leading a team at a client with 0 women in their ranks expect the VP. I find myself getting nervous at the big table and a number of other vendor reps (cont...)
Q for consultant moms. How did you navigate your career post maternity leave/after the 1 year local project limit? Are projects more flexible with travel for mothers? Can any traveling moms comment?
Did anyone use a client for a letter of recommendation? Curious what types of things they wrote about for the constructive feedback question since they don’t provide you with a formal performance review like a supervisor would? I’m considering asking a client for a recommendation, but her feedback was typically targeted to specific deliverables so feeling unsure if she would be able to answer that question well...
Is there a way to restrict character count, or note characters over X number, in a cell? (Ideally, like Twitter where you can see how many over and decide whether to proceed) — or is there an alternate to excel that does so/is meant for word processing (spell/gram check)? Context: client wants a template for copy input/planning that mirrors a defined UI of an internal L&D platform. The platform only shows a certain number of characters before adding “read more” — & the desire is to limit that
I knew i was underpaid, but didn’t realize just how much until my client offered a 60% pay bump...
Apologies if this has been asked already. I’m on a project with multiple locations - I’ll be based at one location but will need to make 2-3 day trips every other month to other sites. (Contd.)
Got an offer from Guidehouse as a senior consultant in HIA back in January. The recruiter is MIA and not coming up with joining date and giving reasons like other PRoject team was put on bench and they will be allocated first before giving joining dates to the new hires.

On a team of all men, all of whom have PhDs. The level of micromanaging is getting unreal especially because I've worked with this client for 3 years and know more about the project. Anyone have advice for condescending team members? Technically I am the team lead but their levels range
Three weeks to leave for MBA, assigned to a new project. Please send me some words of support to not throw everything away and give up just now!
Put on a project just because I'm a POC and it connects to the work. I want to do a hard pass but fear of repercussions. 100% feel like the token (look we care and have a person that match you & this aesthetic) POC. It just doesn't sit well with me on how it was tossed my way nor feel comfortable to do it.
You are getting rolled off next week and u know it today !! Not your fault just client.. 💩💩💩💩 so next week onwards hunt begins!
Client just scheduled a meeting for later today and sent a to do for me in preparation. We haven’t agreed on a meeting and we’re in theory on holidays until after NYE. What would you ladies do? A. Do it and not say anything? B. Do it, but write an email back that these things should be discussed in advance? C. Ignore it and write an email later saying I wasn’t online? I actually am home, but I just hate it that they always assume we’re working around the clock and never even bother asking.
I have a job, and I’m grateful that I do! But it makes me extremely unhappy. I’m talked down to constantly, our client treats us like we’re dumb and they have no trust for the creative team, and I’m constantly anxious. How do I find a new gig during these (forgive me for saying this) unprecedented times? Or what do I do/say if I want to switch accounts within my agency? I need some advice from other women who’ve been through this and succeeded at finding something that makes them happier.
Been on vacation for 3 weeks now and was just assigned to a project for when I get back. Had to log in to sign background checks but completely forgot my password since it's been so long...

For strategists: Hardest interview question you’ve been asked. Go. (Please include your response!)
So much anxiety about going full-time with Deloitte soon. I am interning with Deloitte now and I still have so much anxiety. Like I’m not doing enough even though I’m also doing school full-time. I keep reading awful things about how the culture is cutthroat and to “suck up” to managers but I’m not even sure how to do that? I’m just stressed I’m not doing enough. I just want to be able to succeed but I’m also so stressed with school and work. Is it really that hard to succeed here? Help please!!
