Anyone willing to work on a project this week end? Similar to a hackathon but just for fun. We will validate the idea, build an mvp and launch it. I have a list of 10 ideas to go through. If you are down for it, send me your name. You don’t have to be a software engineer. Any background is welcome 😊
Do you all ever have guilt calling in a sick day? I have a pretty bad cold and 5 months pregnant. I’m just so slow today and want to nap. Working from home
Do you use all of your sick time? Does your sick time roll over? I looked at my absence balances, and I’ve hardly used any sick time. (Honestly because it’s usually more work to take a sick day.)
Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy). Could I or should I try to take some sick days? It feels like that should be an option (esp now with covid and unlimited sick days) but I feel like I never hear of anyone doing this. I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?
Partners: Do you recognize the sacrifices juniors make? (Not at all critiquing. Just curious if you think about the effects of your decisions or whether you realize that this is simply not an analysis one can do given the needs of the project, for example. Also don’t mean to victimize juniors. Just too many uniform experiences suggesting juniors are seen as a backstop to all inefficiencies that roll down hill).
This project is pretty interesting
We've all seen the client expectations vs. client budget memes. Real talk, what is your worst story? And how can we improve this situation in our industry?
I think I have burnout. I just finished a project and my body feels like it is about to give away. This weekend legs hurting for no reason, zoned out, can't focus on GMAT studying.
What is the client facing service line in McKinsey Digital? Seems like there are internal lines of business as well with similar names
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
Anyone ever make the mistake of leaving the hotel room curtain open while in the nude and having a colleague or client outside see you?
When client says two people are allocated 20% so that makes it 40% of the total of the time... 🤦🏻♂️ I just don’t know where to start.
I don't think ppl would care as much about non vaxxed if they would just wear their damn masks and socially distance. One of my best friends is unvaxxed because of extreme fear of needles/medical stuff and i have no qualms w him bcos he masks, distances, is honest about his status if someone asks, and isn't trying to turn it into martyrdom
Ok ladies just need to vent: my husband is the whiniest, most annoying baby when he gets sick!!!! Came home after an extremely stressful day at work, my husband is just moping like a sullen child.....
Anybody know anyone who has moved from consulting into medical sales (equipment, pharmaceuticals, etc.)?
Hey fishes, I will be joining Deloitte USI as a Consultant (SAP) next month. Appreciate if you could help me up with a few queries! 1. I have heard Deloitte provides access to platforms like Udemy, Coursera. Do they have special discounts on various courses? 2. What is the leaves policy like (Sick leaves, vacations, etc). Also, I have heard that 25th December to 2nd January week is a complete off, is it true? 3. Has anyone done SAP certification and do they provide SAP Learning Hub Access
I’ve had a serious medical issue with episodes of debilitating pain and I’m finally going to be getting treatment soon. This has given me a WHOLE new level of respect for everyone with invisible chronic conditions! No real confession, I guess, but🤞🏼my treatment works and that anyone else suffering turns the corner soon, too!
I am just getting into the business and of course you hear the term "niche" client everywhere. I am curious what your niche clients are?
Most of the client locations and offices do not have footrest and my legs kind of swells by sitting on chair for entire day. Any one with similar issue and how did you solve it?
What is a good email subject to ask for coffee meetup to someone you just met once at a client?
Accenture and Deloitte consulting folks - what is the first / second year total partner comp in your firm? Intel would be helpful as courting MD level offers from both. Thanks in advance!

Is it reasonable to jump to a manager position in the industry from a consultant position in MBB or T2? (EMEA) I dislike my job more and more everyday, but I see very little way out at my level and with similar pay.
Hello I am new here. 👋 I am currently a Junior, full time student and looking for internship/part time work in accounting/finance in LA area.
What do you folks do when new senior leaders want to bring in new HR (someone they have in their pocket) so they start de-positioning existing HR leadership?
Any fishes who have been tricked/lowballed when leaving a big 4 / mbb to a smaller firm, and they bring you in at a more junior role than you had before, what impact does it tend to have on your CV in the long run? Have you essentially lost the Ace you were holding by working for a big 4/mbb or is it recoverable?
I see a lot of Big 4 consultants romanticize strategy work on this forum, but are there any other MBB consultants that don't like strategy? Personally haven't enjoyed the strategy work I've done

Ex big4 told me that the best talent leave, bottom gets fired and the middle performers make partner or stay. He's now CFO at a start up. Not amazing but definitely better off than me
First time home buyer here—although not ideal, would it be better to take money out of my Roth or traditional 401k to help pay for the house?
Hello! I'm currently at the beginning of my career and in a sales strategy and operations role in a big tech. Do you think switching to consulting would be a good idea? thinking about long term, I'd like to remain in the tech industry but I fear that I will be missing skills to grow
Cheetah print heels for an interview? Yay/nay?
I mentioned that I was a bit nervous for the interview/didn’t know what exactly to expect in my HBS reflection and I’m worried that was bad to include. I don’t want them to think I wasn’t prepared. Also can’t tell how important the reflections are.
How do you respond to getting called out for low billable hours? Had a come to Jesus call and I mean I get it, my hours are low, but now I'm getting follow up emails. I don't know how many times I can say I understand. Is there something else they're looking for me to say or are they just hounding me to hound me?

Welp. I might not have a job by Monday. Any first year associates miss a deadline and not get fired?
Question time! Two part. 1) What dating sites or apps are you on and 2) do you feel like it’s been particularly tough dating in your 30s/40s during COVID, assuming that we probably date (on average) more seriously than 20s peeps? I personally have only been on one date! A zoom one last week.
