What's the longest period of time you have had to wait to get credentialed before starting a new position?
Woke up to a hotel breakfast of stale bagels, spoiled milk and rancid yogurt... great start to a client week onsite!
Just "wolf whistled" instead of saying my name on a client call. My young female client took it as a compliment.
Checked into hotel. Went to hotel bar. Charged drinks to the room. Asked for a room change because the view was shit. Let's see if I get charged. *I mean my client gets charged
Finally built up the courage to take full advantage of the beach by visiting the gf on a weekday. At 8:30pm I got an email saying be back for a project by 8:30am tomorrow. She lives 4 hours away...
What's your stance on listening to music on headphones while on client site and / or your mgr is around?
It's a little too early in the project to be receiving an ALL CAPS email. Especially on a weekend.
Still wondering what would happen if I honestly comment on the capabilities and opportunities at a client site during my review discussions.
That awkward moment when your client whips out an electronic cigarette and starts puffing away mid presentation.
Do you think I'll be able to use ubers and taxis as travel for all future client travel ? Don't want to get into it, but have some license issues and don't want to be driving.
When the only flight to your new project on the airline your loyal to is in the afternoon on Mondays... 😡
Any recs for a new, easy bar drink to share with a client. Jack and cokes aren't too becoming anymore (I guess). Thoughts?
Starting a new project in Nashville... recommendations on relatively quick dinner in the downtown area?
When your client sponsor was previously a consultant and thinks they can manage your team 🐢
Advice on the appropriate way to ask to eat lunch alone or dinner alone when on a travel project. I don't want to offend my team, but I just have to get away...
That moment when your client tells the engagement partner of your project that if his son weren't married he would try to set you up with him...

People who make 250K+ - do you still feel like you need / want more? Do you have a number in mind that you think is enough? Do you think you will need more when you reach it?
Project is asking me to travel the week my wife is due to have a baby or else get an exemption from HR. Is this normal or is my firm just not supportive? KPMG if anyone is looking to join.
What’s your best nontraditional “Somebody I know made a fortune doing blank” story (I.e. reselling tickets, only fans, nail salons)
Punched a director in the mouth today for talking shit. I've been holding that in for 2 years. Feels like I came for the first time.
Never thought when I started and was making 50k that 14 years later I’d be making over a million ... consulting is funny and pretty amazing when you think about it. We are all very blessed.
How real is this inflation? What's your latest experience with something that has gotten a lot more expensive?
Soooo at today's morning status meeting our shitty SM was absolutely railing a consultant. Consultant stands up and says, "Fuck you. You're an asshole. I'm done here." And walks out. 😳...👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
What are realiatic goals youd like to meet in your lifetime? PT college professor? Healthy workout habits? Mansion w/6 bdrms?
Today I realized that Consulting travel model is not for me. I would rather take a 20% pay cut and spend the additional 50% of my time with wife and kids.
Fam... I have a dilemma. A headhunter reached out to me about a position I m very interested in. We talked and he said he was a good fit for the company. Later he came back and said the company ...
The exit sign on my United flight came off and hit me in the head/neck. 😢 Has this happened to anyone? Happy fly day, folks!
