As data becomes more central to the creative industries, who makes the decisions? The designer or the client?
I overheard a convo between Associates in IFS (Internal Firm Services) complaining how they don't make as much as client facing staff. Well... What do they expect?
My company requires us to have our cameras on when we are on zoom and sometimes I can’t stop myself from changing facial expression when the client says something dumb🥲 I hope it won’t bite me in the butt on my review
I am interviewing at D and two industry roles ( change management leads, on a team of change practitioners so not a leader of a coe). Thinking of the role(s) after this next role (senior managers, directors), will it be a mis-step to never have done consulting/client services if many of the job posting list 3-5 years or more in consulting? Am I shooting myself in the foot if I take an industry role again)? I would be coming in an a senior consultant at D. Continued below in comments

What are your tried-and-true techniques for when a client cuts you off to ask a “clever” question that you have answered on the literally next slide?
Boss is cool giving me some minor additional responsibilities on projects (delegating to other creatives, leading client presentations). How can I parlay this into a promotion to Senior AD? Or ACD?
What should you do when someone calls you out in front of client for not having done something yet, you message them privately that you don’t appreciate that, and then they gaslight you by saying that you’re too sensitive and it affects the working relationship?
We’re in such a vicious business. You give your heart & soul to an agency, a client, a brand. Then the wind changes & you’re laid off, reassigned, chewed up, spit out, on to the next. I’m tired.
Just made the switch to client side...
I want to request feedback (I am a staff 1 about to roll off my first busy client and feel now would be the time) but I hesitate to seem “weird” or “uncool” to those above me. Is this a valid (cont.)
Best place to go while stuck on the bench?
I’m wondering what Accenture is actually doing. Is it more like a Big 4 Firm, doing theoretical consulting things. Or is it more a IT-Service/ Outsourcing company like Connection, Atos, Bechtle, etc. doing hands on technical things? Where is the main focus on?
USCIS is opening offices on or after June 4. Does this mean that US embassies worldwide will also open around the same date? I recall that USCIS stopped processing application the same day the State department ordered consular service closures. Wondering if anyone is aware of a link.
Does anyone have a comprehensive timeline of how layoffs happened in 08? Lots of firms seem to promise no layoffs just like they did in 08.
With the lateral market as hot as it is, are any firms hiring for reduced hours associates? Do you think they’d still offer any sign on incentives? I figure it’s better to have an extra body doing 1600 (80%) than nobody, right?
Has anyone ever taken useful non-client-specific work product from their firm’s system before switching to a new firm? Any insight?
What firms should I be considering for life science if I want to consider a step away from ZS (AC level)? MBB aside, are there any that I should really keep in mind for consideration of a bump in comp, prestige, culture, or exit opportunities?
DFW is a shitshow today. Thanks thunderstorms.

Looking to exit to MBB/tier 2 consulting. Do they/you take analysts 1-1.5 years out of undergrad? Will I have to start over or will I be considered an “experienced” BA/Associate?
How is mindspace work culture Mindtree Someone just reached out for a tech arch position..
Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books? I feel the books themselves ramble on too much on a side story only to tell a point that could be summed up in a couple sentences. Or am I just not getting good book recommendations for growth/development on mental well being and productivity
Is it worth it to do a rotational program 3 years into your career? I have 2 years assurance experience at Big 4 and a little over 1 year experience in “consulting” (Risk Advisory). I’m not really liking what I’m doing and would like to explore other opportunities (cont’d in comments)

Anyone made a transition from FAANG to B4 or MBB at PPMD level? I understand that culture and WLB is different... but was the transition hard or easy? I am a senior leader with FAANG and exploring options. My background is in sales, delivery, solutions development etc, MBA and MS. Thank you.
