When it's your second day on the project and you already get screamed at for trying to be helpful
What's more common for you? 1. using network to get on a project you really like. 2. HR staffs you on something without any prior communication.
Our project's campus hires are starting to fight over ordering lunch, printing decks, and getting coffee. Soon the fist fights will begin.
My PM skipped out two days this week with the client-side group at "an offsite meeting". Tons of meetings had to be shuffled. I found out they went to a spa.
From what I can see so far, taking a full time offer from a client you've worked for seems analogous to crossing into heaven.
It's a little too early in the project to be receiving an ALL CAPS email. Especially on a weekend.
Just "wolf whistled" instead of saying my name on a client call. My young female client took it as a compliment.
My idea of work-life balance is being able to answer client emails and so laundry at the same time.
Leaving my position @ Big 4. I want to list some of my engagements on my LI profile, and get some recs from clients who liked me. Thoughts on posting client names or refs?
Everybody I know wants to get out of this project. It's only this project or you guys too???
7:30 Friday night at client site. Email from manager: "do you have any downtime this weekend?" Response: "It is this weekend."
When the proposal says two associates and an associate consultant will be staffed full time but then you find out it's really just you staffed on the project...
PM trying to tell me people commute 55 miles each way for the project vs hoteling. Any official rule on mileage?
Client used the word "paradigm" 8x and "skin the cat" 3x during a 30 minute conference call
When the client stakeholder uses the phrase "riding the struggle bus" in reference to a project deliverable you're working on. Don't know whether to cry... or laugh.
Starting project in Orlando next week. Looking forward to abusing my AMEX and dignity at Rainforest Cafe.
That moment when you dial in to a client call remotely and they have printed agendas for the live team and no one sent an electronic version to you. #wtfisgoingon
Client asks for big change 8 biz days before going live. Tell them scope is frozen and there just isn't enough time. they reply, "can't you work on it over the weekend?"
On today's call I'm asked a question directly by the client and I have two other people jump in and talk over me and give a different answer for me. Teamwork at its finest.
Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?
Where is a new build???
Not crashing anymore.
Got a flight full of landing clappers... Rookies
Any ivy league grads in big4?
I put in my two weeks tomorrow. I am retiring. I just want to thank everyone I ran across and made this journey unlike any other. Only person more happy than me is my wife. My advice. Family First 🤙
Best martial arts for kids?
Has anyone done a cross country move lately? How much should I budget? One bedroom apartment, selling most of the big stuff but will still have a few furniture items and now my home gym 😅
Nothing makes me cry more than me (an A) asking to record a walk through of somethjng I’ll own, my manager saying No and then me being lost af even though I took notes…
Got my first gig in Denver..!! Can anyone tell what kind of place is it ? And what are the must do's over there?
You guys complain a lot.
anyone in vegas this weekend? just landed
Too much Pokemon nonsense on FB. Play all you want, I don't need to hear about it. All the value to FB is gone. I'm out.
TFW you're on call in the lounge and the people on the call may have heard your waitress say "will you have another sir?"
Oops too quick to post below. EY people: Am I reading this correctly? We get a $25 lunch allowance now?
