Hi ladies! Has anyone ever had a mental breakdown on the client site? I almost reached my breaking point after dealing with a psychotic PM for 7 months yesterday on the site and cried in the bathroom.
Question for the group. I am an experienced individual currently searching to get out of private and into public. I am a CFE and Certified Technology Business Management Executive (CTBME) with an MBA and am scheduled to take AUD of CPA on May 13th. Am I barking up the wrong career tree to try to exchange an extensive and diverse career into what appears to be specialization within public? I really enjoy project work as the monthly grind has worn very, very thin. Opinions?
My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities
Is it rude to suggest to a new analyst that she needs to look more professional, e.g. don’t show up with wet hair to client meetings (even if on Zoom)? FYI I’m also a female and just trying to look out for these new hires

Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter. I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired. Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?

Declined a job offer with 18% raise a few weeks ago because I wasn’t ready to move companies. Starting to regret it but took a risk hoping I’ll love my next project. How will I know if I made the right decision?
Got signed off from work a couple of weeks back due to work related stress (severe anxiety). I was the lead on a multi million pound project and the stress got to me. Firm was supportive. However, ive decided that I definitely do not want to continue working at my current firm (the stress is just not worth it) and am considering handing in my notice during my time off. Any thoughts on whether thats a step too far? Should i return to office full time before handing in my 3 month notice

Looking to improve my verbal communication and interviewing skills. I am not very succinct and tend to ramble on. My vocabulary and phrasing is pretty standard and many times I struggle to find the right words. I do well when I am prepared but do an okay job with speaking on the spot. I want to get sharper in my verbal communication and more confident. For context, I am not a native speaker and at the SM level going for Partner in a couple of years.I would love recommendations on how to improve.

I have a salary range in mind for a new role based on online research and target increase from my comp now. But my research shows the data points are for salaries in HCOL areas. Do I need to adjust what I ask for if it’s a remote role and I’m not in HCOL city? Don’t want to overshoot and lose a great opportunity.
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.
