Anyone deal with a client stakeholder that keeps trying to derail or sidetrack the project? I am leaning toward that the person is incompetent on the project topic and has something to prove.
First year here and I'm very attracted to my second year. I thought she might be feeling the same way too and when the client we were on together got a new team I was hoping we could talk about the possibility of it since I would no longer be directly under her. But now we both got pulled on to a new client and she is scheduled to be the lead senior and I'll be the second year. What should I do? 😔
So, they said no to peacocks but if i can get delta’s buy-in, think I can sell it to my client and account leadership? “Man says emotional support alligator helps his depression" https://apnews.com/6cf8234a7a5a492eabfa4b0e319f2ec3
I have a summer offer from a large financial institution to own an internal strategy/BD project and present recommendations to the global management team. Am also in the interview process with a boutique consulting firm (Mars and Co) but will not be able to get a decision before the deadline of my other offer. Thoughts on what to do if the goal is to end up consulting at MBB after graduating? (MBA candidate). Tried posting this in the consulting bowl as well but couldn’t.
Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
Trying to figure out my freelance project rate for work with an agency. I know at my level, if I was a FTE, my rate would be between $300-$325 an hour at this agency, so am trying to translate that into a reasonable freelance hourly rate to then create a project estimate off of based on estimated hours. Am wondering how much agencies typically mark up freelancer costs when billing clients? Thanks in advance!
When your client is understanding of your schedule, listens to your recommendations, and thanks you for your hard work.

Starting a new job on January 3. Want to leave on good terms in case I want to boomerang down the road. Is it a bad move to put in my 2 weeks on December 17, right before my whole project team disconnects? Or should I at least give them a heads up before I put in 2 weeks? Do I need to tell my practice leaders/PPMDs in advance? I’m a SC fyi. Thanks fam! First time doing this.
How do you make WFH work for you? Dealing with loneliness, inefficient communication with team, client, etc. thank you!
One time my coworker and I on a trip thought we were walking into a new client meeting (good relationship, not cold) to get briefed. They told us Oh, we thought you were presenting. 2 hours to meeting. Open the laptop in the car as he drives down highway. Write a pitch presentation in Word. 3 half page ideas. It’s for their Olympics sponsorship activation and they’re a billion dollar company. Throw it up on the screen, dance around and bring the ideas to life. Won the business! Lol

Was a bit caught off guard this week when I received notice that I was not moving forward in the interview process for a position in-house after being asked to apply by the person hiring and subsequently told I would move forward to the next stage b/c they were very interested in me. Given the sudden 180 & the fact the position is still open, I assume there was a concern about me that came up but literally no idea what it could have been! Would love advice on if (& how should ask for feedback?
