Have a strong feeling the lead on my current project is about to be replaced. Laying low.
When your Midwestern client discovers the remnant henna on your hands from your friends wedding and thinks you have skin disease #cantmakethisup
When the VP of Technology leaves in the middle of your post merger integration project ✌🏽
I'm on PTO this whole week, but still have to work because the client MUST have a deliverable a week before they even start their month close.
Note of caution. Monday morning travel doesn't mix well with a client site team who are all morning people. I'm on my third cup of coffee and I still can't catch up with these people.
Is it frowned upon to use a stack of post-its to make a countdown of how many days left until you're off a miserable project?
Managers that essentially do nothing all day but claim their "guidance" is crucial to the project.
When your manager asks you to use only one data set and not another which leads precisely to the client recommendation he’s seeking. Anyone else feel guilty about this sort of thing?
That awkward moment when you're sitting in Orals for an RFP and the client says they don't understand what role you've been brought in to discuss...
You know what's not a bad sign? When the client puts your team on mute six times during the call. -_-
No trust: Client emails you at 4:50 because you are offline walking to a new room between meetings. They think you left for the day. I'm still working.
Inbox at 9am = 20 unread. In meeting with client all day. Inbox at 4pm = 120. That's 14 emails/hr, 4/min, 1/15sec. Am I going crazy?
Can you imagine the fuckery that would happen if a client looked at all of these posts?! Hahaha #valuecreation
I wouldn't dream of brushing my teeth, or dancing with my Swiffer during a face-to-face meeting with my client, but during a conference call? Oh, hell yeah.
Cause I'm not really serious until I ask a client a third time for the same data they said is "easy to get"
Looking to jump from firm functions procurement analyst, to client facing analyst, is that possible? I have a non Ivy League undergrad, what are my chances?
Post for push testing
How many first year analysts here started as interns? What did you guys do to get those jobs?

Not crashing anymore.
My company is now displaying!
Something is wrong with my client (quite senior one at that). Not only does he return an Excel template that he carefully completed, at 10 pm, but he also edited the PPT to reflect the changes!!
When you're wanting to schedule some PTO but the timing is never right and you can't figure it out if it'll hurt you. Any tips?
If someone says “I wish this workplace was more diverse,” what they really mean is less white people, right?
Is H1B tied to your company?
Has anyone ever asked their firm to match an offer? Who do you talk to? And does it have to be an offer from another big 4? Or an industry offer could work too?
Need some advice from the crowd here. Have an interview day I need to fly out for, but I also have a project kicking off that will involve travel. How do I handle this without drawing suspicion?
Consulting has taught me how to do 30 minutes of work in 8 hours, and 8 hours of work in 30 minutes.
Can you use the priority pass lounge in EWR landside after landing? Will be waiting 3 hours for the Amtrak to Philly
Anyone at the renaissance Pittsburgh tonight?
Took the oath today and can now proudly call America my home. It’s been a long ride being POC & a Muslim Immigrant in America. Hopefully, lesser secondary inspections at the airports. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
