*Sigh*. Another day, another account person who thinks that retained projects = free projects for the client (and that fee estimates don’t need to be approved/tracked internally). 🤯
Client senior manager just told me out while drinking..."I don't know what you do" essentially asking why they need me around; mind you this is late, late night with a few other Accenture folks..
Hasn't been my year, praying that this project consumes my life for a phew months while I get out of this rut
How do companies usually get over (get used to) transitioning from home grown systems to cloud-native and SaaS solutions? Losing control of systems and ongoing cost (licensing cost can go up anytime) seems to be major mental blockers for my client
I want to switch role as an AWS developer. But I have just learnt the things on my own in AWS. In interview I am asked questions based on real scenarios on which I am not having any experience. Any suggestions? Even if I do hands on on services like Linux academy or quiklabs, it would not help. (AWS cloud migration experience one can get if worked on a real project). Please help.
Best comfortable shirt for everyday client site wear? I guess I’ll have to start tucking my shirts now that I’ll be back in consulting
Identified a dream opportunity/project but my partner won’t let me leave my current project. I had the partner on the new project request me directly but my current partner still won’t budge. Any ideas on how I can get my current partner to let me transition?

I’m on a small high burn project team.. joined about 2 months ago.. but I’ve realized that we’re burning out. We’ve been working from 8:30 AM to 7/7:30 PM with no breaks in the middle and take calls from 10 onwards that go up to 11:30 PM.. 1. Is this normal and reasonable? 2. If not, what is the best way to bring this up to my M (being a newbie)?

As the only woman on a production surrounded by 5 male creatives, 2 male producers, I’ve been struggling to get myself heard. My opinions and feedback have been so different from everyone else’s. Ironically, my clients are a team of women too. Deep in my gut, I know they’d want what I am asking for. But how do I push for not just what I want, but what I think the client wants.
Hi Deloitte TS/S cleared folks! Waiting on the bench for client security processes, read ins, indoc/in-processing negatively impacts utilization. How do we mitigate this @ promotion time?
Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
17 years in 850 in production 12 years to go. Never lost a client in a cfp conversation. I make educating myself a priority. Any reason whatsoever I should put myself through the cfp process?

I have to plan several large scale events for the client that are happening within a month. What software can help with managing/planning events?
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
Assuming you are smart enough to do both (I know big assumption), are you better off being a SWE/data scientist at FAANG or equivalent level at MBB (based on YOE) from a compensation:WLB ratio?
Just got a salary bump at my first job!!! I didn't think it would feel this good but it does
Midlevel litigators in Biglaw: What percentage of your workload constitutes shepherding the discovery process (written responses to discovery, collecting docs, meet and confers, discovery conferences, etc.)? I hate discovery and wonder if there are associates that get to spend most of their day doing research, drafting pleadings, and talking about case strategy.
