There is so much drama within senior leadership on my project that it would make the offspring of a threesome with The Bachelorette, Grays Anatomy, and a soap opera look like a sitcom.
When you're killing yourself on the project but your SM plays favorites with the other consultant. Gonna have to revert back to not giving a fuck.
Day 1 of project - lead tells me we should do a team outing involving weed (since we're in a legal area). Dafuq?
Who has the best teammate? Mine is not only a rockstar with the client but also gives amazing dating advice ;)
What has your experience been like dating someone in the client city? Met someone not on the project and not client. We are hitting it off and cud be bf type, wanna hear how it went for some.
Just checked the bathrooms on 4 different floors at my client site and every fucking stall is taken. Wtf!
For those asking what work Vayner has created... here you go. Droga's Tap Project did it better IMO 💦 http://www.adweek.com/brand-marketing/stella-artois-makes-people-wait-for-water-in-extension-of-water-org-super-bowl-effort/
Opened drawer at my client site desk and found 5 old ID badges in the back. Googled the names - all from other consultancies. Graveyard? Should I get the fuck out of this place?
Im one of the few traveling people on my project. SO gets jealous when I have dinner with team members of the opposite sex. How do I explain that it's normal in consulting?
Revenue testing when you weren't involved with anything client related all year. Testing approach is messy as fuck. Client is terrible. I'm all for accepting challenges but this is BS
Is dating a client against policy? I haven't started but it is almost there. Or should wait until the project ends?
If Trump was a consultant. Client: can you deliver this? Trump: I'll tell you at that time. I'll keep you in suspense
Senior simply copy pastes my work and sends it to client. What the fuck is this? I don't understand how incompetent some people can be
Can I get in trouble if my senior manager wants to bring my significant other on a project that I’m already on? I won’t be her direct supervisor... figured it’s no different than dating a co worker.
So the VP of HR at my client was caught with a prostitute in his office this past weekend. Booooom!
I am so sick of being asked to give up my associates to other jobs. When does MY client get priority?! Even when time is booked, people call and bitch to schedulers until they get my associates. 😤
So am dating this girl and she is wish washy about me traveling.. on a local project now. How you guys deal with it ?
Way to fuck up a pitch - MD corrects a client on an obscure Warren Buffett fact - mood in the room changed to get the F out 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
An Inconvenient Poop - The story of a jr cw who had to leave a client presentation for a bowel movement.
It is pure chaos in here 🔥😈😈😈 and I’m loving it 🥺
At your own risk😂
Maybe a more seasoned attorney can change my mind, but it really seems like a lot of closings would be more smooth and less stressful if they were in-person.
How would everyone rank the Big Four? Provide the list and on what criteria you ranked (perception of firm, pay, tax services, anything!).
EY🐠.. what laptop options do you have? I will be starting soon. PwC had Lenovo but we switched to Dell recently.
Most posts on here don’t really paint a positive picture of life in the USDC. Is there anyone on here who has had a good experience working in the USDC? Are any of you working in teams or groups in the USDC that seem great to be a part of? Any leaders or groups in the USDC you have heard of that seem to care and are great to work with or for?
Erry damn day.
I liked Chad before, but this post sealed the deal.
Hi Security folks, Is AWS Solution Architect Associate good for us security people? Is it valued in the market ? Please provide your thoughts
Sometimes I sit and think: we work so hard to be mangers and senior mangers... literally running the show in our projects. Let's start a firm, maybe one day it will be huge!
Not in my experience
Two weeks off and was hoping to say hi to some of you , individually or in a socially distanced small group setting , if anyone is around. Please let me know:)
What is the current job switch hike % going in the market. I am in the interviewing process right now and would like to know if 20k difference in absolute salary is a good hike to accept or if I should renegotiate more?
Are your staff meetings virtual or in person?
Is it actually as hard as people say to transfer international? Currently at Deloitte US, want to move to London, Deloitte UK, even though I don't have a visa. Would Deloitte ever sponsor me?
TX Big law if the long term plan is to not stay in Texas? Law student here with Texas big law offers (from V&E, Latham, KE, among a few others). I'm debating my offers with respect to marketability in house to a midwest market in 3-5 years (decently large city but no big law firms paying market). Do you think it matters at all which firm I choose? I suppose I can always lateral at year 2-3 as well. Intending to go into the M&A group.
