On a project full of new hires like...
I get too distracted by reddit, youtube and google to make WFH a viable solution. I’m also struggling to focus on work when I see client tasks as inconsequential in the face of COVID. What do?
TIL: Just attended the kickoff session of a Flexibility and Predictability committee for a multi-project account. They mentioned that Booz and McKinsey exclude PTO from utilization calculation.
Project Managers out there what are the tasks you do that you think can be automated. Gartner is predicting 80%
I'm about to kick off my first video project (4 pre-roll videos) and I'm super nervous. Any advice?
My client a publicly traded medical VIP concierge service, heavily pushes their mental health service I placed request for my spouse when asking about their virtual network, I requested an AA male therapist hoping for peer to peer engagement 2X intake person said: “a colored therapist” I’ve managed this w/clients who were aware of problems￼ this client’s outwardly unaware & will expect a review; had my client lead inform the client as a delivery & conversion flag How would you address?
Client keeps inviting me to meetings but not the EM or anyone else on the team (who needs the information in the meeting). Should I keep forwarding invites to him/her or just let them address it?
What are your opinions on having a website? I feel like it could go a long way me an identity. Is it necessary to have one right off the bat or did you wait until you had a solid client base first?
Been on vacation for 3 weeks now and was just assigned to a project for when I get back. Had to log in to sign background checks but completely forgot my password since it's been so long...
Awkward Questions from Client: So you're out of CO right, do you smoke weed? ... No, and not appropriate in the middle of a meeting
Got asked today best way to gather our own (agency's) 1st party data. My first thought is develop our own pixel to capture user data (ip, email, device ID) and store that in a database, then use it later for targeting through a LiveRamp or similar. No idea if this is right or there's a better way or where I'd start my research. Anyone want to point me in some sort of direction?
I have a job, and I’m grateful that I do! But it makes me extremely unhappy. I’m talked down to constantly, our client treats us like we’re dumb and they have no trust for the creative team, and I’m constantly anxious. How do I find a new gig during these (forgive me for saying this) unprecedented times? Or what do I do/say if I want to switch accounts within my agency? I need some advice from other women who’ve been through this and succeeded at finding something that makes them happier.
My client just told me that their company will fail if our deliverables don’t get the job done 😅
First time needing to edgarize a document (my practice is ECVC and have a client doing a Reg CF raise). Am I right in assuming that it’s just converting a Word doc or PDF doc into an SEC-specific format? Any recs on service providers? Would love a cloud-based self-serve tool and understanding of how pricing is supposed to work.
How can you tactfully push a client lead to encourage change from a direct report of theirs? I have a great relationship with the lead and the report, but the report is dragging on business processes

What’s your dream account/client?
I feel like I’m not learning anything at my internship. It’s easy work and good pay though. Should I try to take on another project or multiple to try to gain more experience? But I was told it’ll be much harder and I would be expected to work longer hours and managers will be rough on me. Is this worth it when I go to school full-time as well while trying to balance a part time job? (The internship at D is expected to be part time but they might make me work more).

Hey could use some honest opinions on this because I’m still in shock. I was preparing to give in my resignation + 2 weeks from EY on Monday to jump ship to Deloitte. I accepted the offer from Deloitte on Friday, and I just got hit with a bomb today that my brother has cancer and we have no idea what stage it’s at. Should I just rescind my acceptance from Deloitte? I don’t know how it would be taken if I start at a new firm and immediately need substantial flexibility and time off.
This recruiter is pushing for industry manager positions based on my experience but I don't feel ready for it. Im currently a senior 1. Will it look bad if I decline a manager position just because I don't feel ready?
In Tech at D. Over my past 4 projects they seem to really burn us into the ground overwork us. Is that just my bad experience? Other Big 4 have a similar issue?
DM for EY referral 😆
