Just "wolf whistled" instead of saying my name on a client call. My young female client took it as a compliment.
When a senior partner inserts a client’s son as an intern even though the interviewers unanimously rejected him. #consultingcronyism
Managers that essentially do nothing all day but claim their "guidance" is crucial to the project.
Cheesy client holiday t-shirt reads, "Now watch me sip...on chardon-nay-nay." Welcome to the holidays folks 😐🔫
"Hello from Auto-Replyyyyyy." - Adele... reading my Outlook inbox as I send emails on to the client on a Sunday during the holidays, per the partner's instruction.
Client: why the fuck are you emailing me at 2 in the morning when literally EVERYONE (including your own people) are on PTO?
Talking to a principle/senior manager who wants to sell work to a high tech client but the client told him that all the consulting methodologies you sold are too old school.
Tentatively asked to be on a PM project, but a second manager asked me to do a functional role. I want to be building skills, how can I push off the first role?
You know the project is going well when even the client sponsor jokes about jumping out of the window so someone else has to deal with this shit...
Is there any dating site out there just for consultants? If not, than why not? Any partner out here who wants to fund this noble project ;)
When you get a first local project in 3 years and make it 9-4 3 days a week on site. Guys, this happens!!! I found a unicorn
Anyone ever encountered someone being fired while billable for another few months at least? I thought it was so odd the firm wouldn't wait and put client through that
When you're told the client is cutting back on costs so no OT but the workload is 100 hours...so exhausted!
When you're working remote for a client in Australia and have to start your work day at 4 am to have some overlapping hours, then continue until 6 pm for another local client -___-
If I were the client, I would tell consultants: Don't you ever spend 75% of my money on choosing the colors, fonts, and margins of that deck
Project gets suspended midway and you get to come home on Wednesday instead of Thursday. Not sure if I should be happy or sad about it. 🤔

Is it harder to get into top MBA programs for consultants? How do programs differentiate between applicants in consulting?
Thank the lords for pre-TSA 👏👏
MBB energy practice in Houston: (1) how busy are you (2) how big is the practice (3) what kind of projects do you typically work on (4) are you hiring?
What's your most ridiculous (Seinfeld-esq) reason you stopped talking to / dating someone?
