Hi! New to PwC and consulting. Can someone please give me insight into how to get staffed on a project?

talk to your RL, Deployment consultant, and Talent consultant. let them know what type of work you’re interested in doing and they can help you find some opportunities that would be a good fit! when I first joined it took a few weeks to get staffed, so don’t worry too much if it’s taking a bit of time

Join the funnel calls, volunteer to help on the PD portion of engagements that interest you, highlight preexisting relevant experience during these conversations….also, it’s normal to be on the bench when you first start, enjoy it

i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.

Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
