When telling your project team that your pregnant and expecting in a few months, do you tell them in person on the phone or is sending an email okay? I get telling your immediate team member who you interact with in person is probably better, but what about senior leaders who you may only talk to once or twice a month?
Lots of us are skilled at delivery but most sales books seem to focus on the pitch and closing... What are your best resources for learning to develop and nurture strong, lasting client relationships?
Freelancing for the first time. How do you respond to what’s your availability when you have more than one project?
No one acknowledged my new stapler in the office so far. I'd like a new project please.
My 23rd fall tax season and I still can’t get myself into the next project/deadline until 9/15 is fully buttoned up….Today I’m part sloth, while still attacking the problems that arise.
Grey's Anatomy is like a long term project. Top talent and rising stars leave for bigger/better, new cast are onboarded and rolled off, and the one person who stuck it out makes partner/exec producer
Has anyone ever done Tech/implementation consulting with the FDIC? Wondering how they are as a client and what the work atmosphere is like there
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
My client is looking to hire a freelance web designer and a graphic designer for a passion project. Web designer needed to develop a simple blog site. Graphic designer needed to develop a few custom images that look like paintings. If interested send me a message as soon as possible. Thanks!
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!
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
I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
WYR? Work on a prestigious brand but don’t make anything. Ever. With an up and coming agency that could be something cool some day? Or an agency where you make ALOT and have the opportunity to work on a lot of different brands but have to spend a year working on one terrible client with no work life balance?
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?
Pro tip: use your PTO to go all in on a personal hobby or side project for a week. It’s super refreshing, and you don’t have the stress of travel.
what’s a good resume template/format for consultants? i.e do you list out each project as its own section under the employer? Is it still recommended for one page resume?
Given the option of (A) running a small-mid size recruiting dept in a smaller agency, or (B) recruiting client-side / in-house marketing department — which would be preferred, and why?
Another post about Uber tipping..... when importing into expense reports the tip is its own separate charge 😡
Received an invite for a superday very quickly after applying to Goldman. Recruiter never sent me the zoom password and then the password failed to work so everything started a full 15 minutes late. Interviews went great including a “they’ll definitely be a second round” but then I received the rejection email the next day. Do we think the tech issues played into that significantly or just my interview not stacking up to other candidates?
I don’t want to burn my bridges, but my dream agency contacted me after being at my new job for a month! I’m all for sticking it out, but this other opportunity allows for more creativity, closer to home, and most likely better pay. Anybody ever been in this position, and what did you do?
What is the SPG Global Promo? I got 3 of them for Q1 and don't recall getting these before. The SPG website doesn't have much info.
I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
When should I expect to hear back from schools for interviews? I submitted apps September 1st and I feel like I’ve been seeing posts on here of people already interviewing. I’m kind of freaking out 🙃

Asking for a friend - Salary for first year senior con Deloitte Boston on Tech Implementation?
Suggestions for books, apps, etc to help think thru career change? Something that helps put a framework around finding something that fits your strengths, suggestions on what to consider, etc? Feeling lost even thinking what jobs to consider aside from corporate strategy and that is so not creative for someone in consulting! Suggestions on resources?
Have about $6k in SPY (0.09% expense ration). Does it make sense to sell and switch to VOO (0.03% expense)? Worth the near term capital agains tax for lower expense ratio over long term? Capital gains are about $900 and I’m planning on auto investing every month over the next few years.
