Has anyone been through a protested contract? I am concerned about job security

There’s so many variables here, unfortunately.


The original awardee typically still gets the contract unless there's something egregious


What’s a protested contract?

As stated above - it’s just a very real part of the process. The hoops we jump through for Fed contracts are pretty crazy. If you screwed up one of the steps, or there is some conflict, or any kind of stuff they could pull the award.

There are a ton of laws around this and it really can be a huge problem if you staffed up for a contract just to have it go under protest for months.

Do you ever feel like corp tech life is kind of meaningless? High stress, miss out on key family milestones for the price of $200k-$500k TC a year, and at the end you have like maybe $10M NW, a stress-related disease and a strained marriage, with kids whose college you paid for but don't hear from that often. I don't want this to be all there is.

Hey fishes, would be joining PwC AC DDVIT team in some time. I have some questions:

1. Is the PwC AC DDVIT team same as Strategy& or these two operate differently?
2. How is the overall worklife balance for PwC DDVIT team?
3. What are some some good benefits in PwC AC (monetary/non-monetary)
4. How much time does an associate 2 take to get promoted to senior associate?
5. Are there on-site traveling opportunities? And is it only to US or European countries as well?

Pro tip: Micromanaging other people's teams is not the way to show you're worthy of a promotion. It just makes less people want to work for you.

Have you ever met someone where you both have the same mutual friends and have great friendships with those friends but you two just don’t seem to click? I’m experiencing that with someone I recently have tried to build a closer friendship with and we just really don’t seem to be on the same wavelength. We both hangout in the same friend group often but I don’t think we could ever hangout alone. Is that something that can change eventually or is it just a personalities thing?


Fellow P&T Directors - here’s a thread for us to discuss what we are hearing/not hearing with regards to PCLDE and the making of new partners in P&T.

On every call, we hear Joe talk about making new Partners and his commitment. I have yet to see any of those ‘commitments’ be reflected in actions or explanations. (eg. No senior directors from commercial GTM going into PCLDE this year …) What?

Do they really think we’re going to ‘stick around’ until they ‘figure it out’ …
