I’m currently on for a few weeks due to his current project). I’m feeling really defeated because I feel like my current project is just waiting on the new guy to come and I’m just a placeholder. I really like the team and wish I could stay. It gives me anxiety bc I’m scared I’m going to suddenly get rolled off again. I got suddenly rolled off my first project (legit no warning). The project might be able to keep me if the client approves a higher budget but idk how likely that is given how tight the current budget is.

Not an easy situation, try to prove yourself and go above and beyond. Once you add value, they will want to keep you.

Also not sure how this is going to impact my performance review bc I haven’t been able to “prove myself”

Question for anyone who handles UCC article 2. / Magnuson moss disputes. I’m a transactional attorney for luxury assets. A client has decided to bring in his own Amlaw 50 financial services litigation team to handle this highly specialized warranty dispute (lol). But anyway, these guys seem to be telling client that instead of holding onto the asset while he litigated the revocation, he has the right to resell the asset now and then sue the seller for any shortfall. The lit team seemed insult

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?

Is there a difference of being on the beach and on the bench? My take is that you are on the beach when you roll off a project that has given you a hard time and want to relax a bit.

Not looking to get my hand held, and never afraid of hard work, but this project really sucks in my opinion. Really wanna get to a new project but trying to figure out if it’s me or the project? Anyone ever been in these shoes?

Need advice on hating your sibling’s significant other.

She is 21, and is now dating a 39 year old man who lives in an off grid cabin. From what I’ve seen he is basically a 39 year child. No responsibilities, does whatever he wants. No future plans. I’m concerned but don’t want to push her away.
