Question from a first year associate. If you ask OC for a continuance without date, (to allow another third defendant time to file a motion so that all pending motions can be heard together) is it normal for OC say something like "I'm amenable to a continuance if we set a date, but I need permission from my client before I can agree to a continuance without date"? Do attorneys typically consult with their clients everytime OC asks for a continuance?
I wish I could hire a project manager to just manage my entire life. You guys are the fucking best.
Client email just came in on this holiday weekend. Nothing urgent but they do want a deliverable. Targeting closing late next week. Reasonable to wait until Monday/Tuesday or would you run back home to your computer and mess up your plans?

Does anyone have any insights on how EY GPS stacks up against peers in the market like deloitte GPS, guidehouse, etc. in terms of project availability on the technology side. Not necessarily just from a size perspective (which EY probably is smaller) but more from things like types of projects they are typically pursuing and cultural differences.

Hello fish. Looking for healthcare industry roles in Houston or Dallas. Currently a strategy consultant with experience in the payer and government programs (Medicare, Medicaid, vbc) space.
MBB is known for fastest progression to Partner in 6-7 years and SIGNIFICANTLY better comp compared to Big 4. That said seeing some of my Big 4 friends make it to SMs in 7 years so MBB needs to amp up the meritocracy based promotions. Curious what would be the comp for a 1st year consulting partner in Big 4?
MBB associate with undergrad degree in economics. Loved the degree, though didn’t do much with it outside of class (spent summers on internships, didn’t write a thesis). If I want to do something related to economics, how can I best leverage my current background to do so? Would MS in Econ make more sense than an mba? Maybe MS in stats or data science? Does the MBB background help in any way?

Partners. Were there stages in your career (Analyst, Consultant, Manager, etc) where you felt things weren’t clicking and that maybe consulting wasn’t for you? What did you do to get over the hump and still find a way to Partner? To be specific, I’m currently a C looking to make manager in a year, and there are manager level responsibilities that I’m struggling to execute proficiently (e.g., asking the right questions to the client, driving work with little guidance, etc)
Partners better watch out. If you commit blatant sexual assault on a junior colleague, your firm might force you to attend diversity training! 🤔
