Hi ladies. I work in IT consulting and we don’t typically have to put notes in for billable hours, but a few weeks ago my boss asked me to start entering notes, about what exactly I was working on for client A,B,and C. I just said sure and didn’t ask why. I found out today from other colleagues that no one else was asked to enter notes in for their time. What’s a good way to ask my boss why the new change? I’d at least like to know if I did something wrong so I can improve.
Tired of midlevel and senior associates who make the lives of juniors a living hell because they don’t know how to staff a project.
Would love advice on how to approach a junior staffer I manage. She’s about 4-5 years out of college and overall a nice person but has a major ego. She thinks her work is perfect, but she consistently misunderstands asks, forgets the role of each client and produces either sloppy or incomplete work. We have two one on ones a week where I go through client priorities & feedback with her on top of our team meetings. She is continually getting worse, but leadership won’t roll her off. WWYD?
I’m sure they are talented people over at Wolfgang but why set a precedence for basically working for free? Why would adidas or any other client for that matter pay the agency their fair value? https://www.adweek.com/agencies/fedex-fishing-poles-wolfgang-la-first-adidas-project/
Seeking career advice!
Option 1: Senior associate Big4 FDD in MCOL
Option 2: Senior consultant Big4 Internal M&A/FDD/Ops (ie non client-facing) remote position
Similar comp structure but could live in LCOL in the remote position. Debating career impacts of being remote and non client facing (especially if transitioning to IB in short-mid term) vs financial incentives of little to no rent.
Thanks in advance!
What will happen if one puts down paper during bench period/ on the process of assignation to another project at HCL? Do they need to serve 3 moths of notice period or can they be released early?
So, a spot I made (concept to completion) got shelved due to COVID forcing the client’s marketing plan to change. During that time, my partner and I were laid off. Recently, the spot aired, but the agency credits a different team for the work – me, my parter, and my CDs aren’t listed. Do I ask the agency to correct it? Just throw it in my book with explanation? Just take the L and chalk it up to that being how the industry is?

I got into a project with end date close to my delivery date. I did not tell them about my pregnancy. For some reason, project got extended. I owned complete KT to a new resource. My coworker is still mad at me that I did not tell him initially and now they have to put up with a new resource. Did I do something unethical?
Anyone here use a CGM ( continuous glucose monitor)? How comfortable are you wearing something that will allow your monitor be in plain sight?

Is it really bad to leave the firm in the middle/at the beginning of a new project for another job in industries?
I've worked at the same engineering firm for 4 years. I'm currently making $161k with only a $750 bonus, but excellent vacation (4 weeks, cash out anytime, rolls over indefinitely), 45 hours a week. I have an interview with a recruiter at Guidehouse this week for a Technical Project Manager role. It seems to be focused in the government space and requires a security clearance. What sort of salary and benefits could I expect for this sort of role at Guidehouse?
I’m not stranger to busy season but i’m very concerned about my SO’s WLB… he’s stressed, not sleeping more than 6-7 hours, eating 1x a day, working 14+ hours, 7 days/week, and today is his 20th day in a row working. His team files 4/6 and then he’s on another busy szn client that files 4/30 with the same time/work expectations. He’s an A1 @ PWC Audit- Asset Wealth Mmgmt. Any tips on how i can better support/help him? IK he’s not telling his team how down bad he is and it’s getting worse.

How much is too much to ask for when negotiating an internal raise?
I'm a senior software engineer with 10 years of experience. I've been with my current company for 5 years. I started at 100k and now I'm only at 116k, which means they haven't even kept me up with inflation.
I'm happy and don't *want* to leave to have to get my worth. I want to ask for 150k (I've been seeing recruiters emails for 160-200), but I feel like that's going to sound outrageous to them.
