Implementation project is a broad term...all Ops projects are in a way related to implementation(new system rollout/migration/process/BA work etc)..which part of it do you hate?

And also any large scale programs like T+2 or LIBOR for sure would involve system changes and implementation...

Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.

I've become really jaded about consulting.
