I should stop day drinking, 2020 broke me. Between this project, Covid and trying to adult and date.
Agencies (in-house or otherwise) who are worth making an effort for in Austin, TX, specifically for project managers and creative operations? Asking for a friend. (FOR REAL.)
Got an offer from Guidehouse as a senior consultant in HIA back in January. The recruiter is MIA and not coming up with joining date and giving reasons like other PRoject team was put on bench and they will be allocated first before giving joining dates to the new hires. What should I do...if the recruiter comes back with the joining date. Should I join? What is the business situation at Guidehouse right now?
What is your least favorite kind of client?
Has anyone from MBB worked at the same client where there is one of the big 4 ? How are the dynamics between the two in that engagement?
Found out today the slide master we use from the client was from the previous BCG team (we are implementation). Looked at the doc owner and the original doc owner from years back was McKinsey!
Have you ever been rolled off a project suddenly? Should I be paranoid of a 4 rating or being laid off.
Got asked today best way to gather our own (agency's) 1st party data. My first thought is develop our own pixel to capture user data (ip, email, device ID) and store that in a database, then use it later for targeting through a LiveRamp or similar. No idea if this is right or there's a better way or where I'd start my research. Anyone want to point me in some sort of direction?
Been on the bench since getting hired at my new firm in October. I’ve been able to do some great ML/data engineering work for an internal project but
In-house fish need your advice: Was hired ~ 10 months ago to lead a 4 year web project. After months of planning and politics, project was canceled due to funding and scope. (Cont.)
I get too distracted by reddit, youtube and google to make WFH a viable solution. I’m also struggling to focus on work when I see client tasks as inconsequential in the face of COVID. What do?
First time on bench since I joined last year. Feels weird to have pretty much nothing to do but really needed the time off. Should I try to find a project right away or wait for one more week? ⛱
What’s your dream account/client?
My firm is virtual - all work done remotely in home office unless on client site. Haven’t traveled since mid October. It’s driving me nuts. What do you recommend doing?
Firm is preparing for eventual travel and has asked me to get LCAs/amendment for my client locations. But I have a job offer and my new firm will be requesting a H1-B transfer. Does anyone know if this will be an issue?
Project leadership is telling teams that they need to fly in the week of thanksgiving and possible Christmas as well. The assumption is that we fly home the day prior to the actual holiday. 😂
I went through a pretty rigorous interview process for a marketing project manager but ultimately wasn't given job. Though most of the feedback was positive, the other candidate had more direct experience with the job responsibilities (digital assets, social media, etc.) My job/company dabbles in digital but it's primarily traditional media. How do I again the experience if I'm limited by the type of work we do?
Regional model - do they actually hold you to that during staffing? My project team seems to be from all over but didn’t know if this was unique.
Looking at exit opportunities for senior manager level at Microsoft and Facebook, how does comp compare to MBB?
How’s the WLB in EYP TSE group ? Thinking of applying but have heard horror stories of MBB equivalent stress levels.EY-Parthenon
No work travel in the immediate future on current engagement. AA Platinum Pro status going to expire if I don’t get $2,000 EQD’s by year-end. Think I’ll hit ~$1,200-$1,300 with personal travel. Worth spending $700-800 more to retain status by paying for full fare first class on 1-2 of my personal trips?

Does anyone think follow ups with doctors are sometimes scammy? I recently got pretty sick saw 3 different doctors each refered me to the next finally the last one decided I needed emgrecy surgery and took care of me. The thing is each doctor wants me to come back and have a follow up with them and I'm like no.
When you have been ghosted by your ex, how do you get over the anger and hurt when there is so much you want to say to them? PS: I cheated on her and came to tell her the truth. We went on couple therapy and things were fine (at least what I thought). She then waited for me to travel for work and came to pick up all her stuffs, blocked me from everywhere and just disappeared. She keeps all the payments I making (didn’t change that, her phone, Netflix, her car, etc.) but totally disappeared.
My district has a COVID-19 Compliance Tipline. While I don’t have need of it currently, it is good to know it is there. Does your district have this?
Have my first interview for an industry job (haven't interviewed since college 2 years ago for big 4). Any tips? Internal audit position
Labor Day is coming up next week, and I'd love your thoughts on how we can recognize workers in this truly strange year. Maybe a mega thread in the Coronavirus Work-life bowl asking what it's been like to be a worker in the year 2020? Could be a cool time capsule to have people from different industries share their stories about what it's like to work through this. Any thoughts that come to mind?
Has anyone here decided you don't want kids? Just turned 34 married for 13 years. I still have no desire to have kids. I am okay with this life but sometimes wonder if I would feel some emptiness down the road. Please share your experience.
Question: I currently have a bit over $3000 worth of VTI ETF shares. Now that I’ve crossed over the $3k mutual fund minimum threshold, will this ETF begin to act as a mutual fund, where I’ll have the ability to DCA at any dollar amount instead of the full cost of the share? Does it automatically convert to VTSAX shares?
Been out of the job hunt game a while...how to handle salary negotiations? I already gave my expected salary range to the HR rep, and I’m about to receive a formal offer with a number hopefully...
