If you're a company who employs alot of hourly workers for your billable hours at the client side, Which ATS and HRIS you all use?
Is there anyway I could solicit client feedback as a review directly into the internal systems? excellent relationship and have multiple appreciation mails. Q specific to EY.
My manager is incapable of admitting when he’s wrong, to the point where he’s let me use the wrong formulas on client work because he couldn’t bring himself to admit he’d given me the wrong formula.
Utilization is a proxy for how busy you are. It isn't a metric for the impact you have on the client. #DeloitteConsultingTownHall
I don't work at PwC but just heard about the digital fitness app. Seems that you'll need a PIN to login if you're not an employee or client
I'm on a reporting team with a Manager who doesn't manage strategically. He says "yes" to everything, doesn't keep meetings on track with client and SM, doesn't own anything but agrees to
New to M&A and starting my first SMO / DMO project. How should I learn quickly? As a Sr. Consultant, what is the general expectation?
What do you do when a client makes a friend request to your fb page?? I hesitate confirming, unless they were friends prior to becoming clients. I keep a boundary.
I am thinking about starting a new project where I need to be on client site 3 days a week (vs where I mostly support remote now) while my oldest is starting 1st grade and my SO faces (cont)
Pumping Moms - how do you code your time? I try to take my laptop in the room with me to pump, but with set up/clean up, etc. it doesn’t feel right to bill a client for all the time.
Starting a new project in Chicago on Monday. What’s the weather like right now? Do people take Uber or Yellow Cabs? Where do people eat/stay if they’re working at the Deloitte office?
Lesson learned: when in APAC do not ask your client to take you to their favorite restaurant. Wound up eating "turtle sex organ soup" and century eggs last night.
Poll Question: which consultant would you rather staff or hire and why? A. Consultant who has worked with the same client for two straight years, above target utilization. B. Consultant who has worked with 8 different clients over two years, above target utilization.
Australian news program used client’s copyrighted video without permission/license in production. News program claims it falls under fair use as they “critiqued” the video. Video was not newsworthy. It was fail video (America’s funniest home videos type) used for laughs, and to fill the hour with content. Any recommendations for client?
Have a crush on coworker on my team, but live in different cities and usually work from different client sites (even tho we are on same project.) & he’s younger than me. Deciding if this is bad news..
Well Adele's full album is now on Spotify... Don't worry I definitely won't be crying at the client site today.
I have a client who only wants to use MS Teams to communicate to us. It is a nightmare for many reasons but not sure how to stop this.
Anyone looking for SAP Project Managers, I am just finishing up a 3 year Greenfield S4 HANA implementation focused on project delivery. Please PM me for details
Unpopular opinion for an SM: I enjoy the strategic, problem solving (whatever that may be: decks, implementation, etc) & team building parts of consulting but I absolutely hate the meetings & client-facing side. I just want to be the SME fixing stuff and don't want to deal with anything else.
Hello Everyone! Had a discussion yesterday regarding “claw backs” being included in a policy for sponsorship if the new employee leaves before 3 years. It was a declining percentage over a three year period. My POV was that it wasn’t something I’ve ever done and didn’t seem like they were sure of the hire they were making. I get wanting to save costs but at the same time doesn’t feel inclusive or welcoming. Thoughts? Have you done this or seen it work? Thanks!
What was the Parthenon Group like before the EY acquisition? How was it perceived compared to MBB, Big 4, etc. in terms of prestige, exit opps, etc.?
Has anyone had SPG points deposited into their account for stays that happened weeks or months ago (and were deposited correctly at the time of stay). Not complaining, anyone else double dipping?
I work in a role that has pretty much no work-life balance, so my life is mostly consumed and defined by my role. I really don't connect personally with people at work, because work is work. But I am lonely. I'm wondering what advice you have for someone in this situation. Thanks
Whats the salary and total compensation range/composition for Executive directors in JPMC?
Will have the final around of interviews for an industry direct tax role soon and going to meet people from other teams (payroll, accounting, indirect tax etc). How should I prep for interviews like this? What qualities do people who work cross-functionally with tax look for in a tax candidate?
Would you be honest or just put something like work life balance. I have worked with really shitty people. It would be several. Like base compensation, skills not fully utilized, firm culture, communication issues, etc
I’m getting laid off tomorrow. For those that got laid off during the pandemic, how long did it take for you to find another role? I have 4 months of savings.
Shameless plug to a LinkedIn post that I wrote yesterday. Lists upon lists of remote companies including EMEA/APAC roles. https://www.linkedin.com/posts/chris-day-2021_opentowork-remotejobs-fishbowlapp-activity-6857385362189299712-Lboo
Anyone from BDO willing to referral?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Spg or Hilton honors? Currently spg plat but wanted to know if anyone had better experiences with Hilton (service, upgrades, points accumulation mainly)
What are the best products/content/sites/etc. to raise your Verbal score? I’ve used Manhattan, Magoosh, and a variety of GMATClub articles; am currently at V32; and am targeting V40+ in <1 month 🤓.
Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....
