Anyone ever been on a project so dysfunctional + toxic that they've requested to roll off? How did that go? Asking for a friend lol.
Male fish- I’m attending a committee meeting of a client’s board down in South Beach. Dress code is “resort casual”. Any pointers on this one?
I knew i was underpaid, but didn’t realize just how much until my client offered a 60% pay bump...
How many of you don't have an apartment and just alt travel or stay in your client city every weekend? Specifically any EY folks who do this? Wondering how easy it is to live like this on our policies
What do you do with male consultants continuously trying to claim your space on your project? I feel just because I’m a young female manager that by definition I get less appreciated!

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?
When you present the first round of social concepts to client (let’s say about 10 concepts total, trying to fill out their content calendar), do you stick with write-ups or show one execution per idea?
I have 3 weeks left of my notice period. Rolled off my project today, and I’m now on the bench. Am I expected to do anything?
Nothing irks me more than analysts on the bench that take a day to respond to emails. Scrap that, any analysts that take more than a day to respond. Your client's CEO and VPs flooding your inbox???
College awkward conversation starter "where you from, what's your major?" has just morphed into Management Consulting with "so what project are you on?" Does anyone actually care when they ask that?
Just gonna vent here bc I can’t do this on normal social media but it infuriates me how people just blatantly ignore requests to RSVP to events. I sent an initial invite for our client holiday..cont
Given the news of BB losing Ford as a client, not sure if I can make a case for holding my 1k shares for the long run. Anyone have any real bull thesis that’s not just rockets? I’m considering just dumping my BB into MGNI/DKNG to bolster my winners there
How’d you get into project management? Want to change fields and find myself more interested in the managing and execution of technical projects.
Holding all else constant, do you prefer two continuous weeks of bench time or 10 hours less work per week for 8 weeks
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
Thinking about going to Iceland for a week next summer (assuming the covid situation is in a better place) - how much should I be planning to spend for two people?
Anyone investing in San Diego?
Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)
Currently have 2.5 yrs of audit experience (1.5 with pwc) thinking to move to another big 4 as a senior? (Deloitte) (pwc is a bit wishy washy about my promotion timeline) or jump to industry? What roles in industry is best for career growth?
Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed? Bridges never burned, debating re-kindle conversations...
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
This baby is competing with my Bose NC headphones. The baby is winning. (No fault or judgement to the mother.... I feel bad for her, she's a trooper).
I’m currently working as a design consultant at a big 4 & it’s my first job as a designer. I’m doing a lot of strategy work and haven’t done any design work at all. Although I want to find a new job, I don’t have any design experience to add to my portfolio to be competitive in recruitment. I’d love to get some advice from people who hired consultants or were once consultants but now working at agency or in-house on how to market yourself during recruitment.
Can anyone help me with kind of questions I can expect for .Net developer interview 3 years experience. Data structures and algorithms or just project based questions

When it takes you two weeks of working to catch up from one week of vacation...seems like it should be the other way around ☠️
My roommate is currently having a very loud conference call with 60+ very very giggly people. This wfh is going to be fun... she can sit in her room and close her door but nope. Thanks for listening 🤦♀️
I have a potential client based in EU. What's the best way to go about billing an under $50k project? (Google says PayPal but sounds a little weird to me).
It been over 12 Weeks since I got an RFE for my H1b extension petition and GGS has not filed a response yet. Every time I reach out, they claim that they are still working on it.
