My client in a nutshell.
What to expect at year end in terms of raise/ bonus? Started in November as SC. Was on the bench for 3 months. Been performing great since I started on project. (Fed practice)
New to implementations but got stuck managing/doing configurations. I’m not the PM but I deal with engineers and client face almost every. Best book for this type of role besides the Phoenix project?
International transfer - anyone with experience transferring onto an overseas project within your firm and/or via an external hire? What recommendations do you have for someone trying to work abroad?
Any PwC Partners (non audit) who’ve invested in private equity funds that subsequently ended up becoming an audit client for PwC? How do you handle dispensation requests for investments where there’s no liquidity / secondary market? Any one had this issue while they were still in the “investment period” of the underlying fund?
I know this is a story that repeats in this bowl but I’ve finally reached my end with this industry. While the pay is great, I’ve grown to dread work. I understand that client side isn’t utopia but where else does a “seasoned” ad person end up?
Just started as Senior 1 at Big 4…is it normal to not receive any actual training aside from HR-related? Only Senior on my team with a team who is all new to the client. Honestly feeling as though I’m being set up for failure and regretting my choice to switch firms. Any advice?
Alt travel: flights to London from client are cheaper than back home. 3 days in Europe? Heard conflicting statements if intl flights are OK to expense for alt travel.
Fishbowl friends! What's the best way to network to get on a new project when I just switched to a new division and don't know many people?
Anyone know how to create fancy reports from MS Project? Google and colleagues don’t know of any so checking if it exists.
I know this has been posted before but I just need support. I’ve been back from mat leave for two months. I don’t like my job, my motivation to work is gone. I just think I hate this work. I am interviewing at other jobs but nothing is happening. I used to have so much drive to do well - even if I hated a project. Now I’m doing the minimum to just get by. I feel I need to be inspired work wise (hence, looking for a new job), but just kinda depressed and aimless.
Hi y’all. So I haven’t technically onboarded for my firm yet, I’m suppose to start in 3 weeks. One of the projects I’m going to be put on requested to have a little interview with people of the team so I had mine today. The “interviewer” didn’t really seem to think I was qualified for this project at the end of the conversation (agree to disagree with him on that). Regardless, am I in trouble for not fitting his criteria/selling myself enough…kinda worried on my manager’s response….
Current team is keeping a consultant on for 2 extra weeks to train me. Signed an offer letter yesterday, but could take 3-4 wks before getting through background check. Should I tell my project cont..
Hi fishes! To any fellow FP&A ladies in the room: Just joined an FP&A team with no prior FP&A experience... What makes a strong, high performing FP&A analyst? My background is in project management for finance, model governance and RRP consulting; graduated business administration, major in finance. Thanks!
Really annoyed that during a majorly stressful campaign (for a client that quite frankly sucks lol) that in every meeting, forum etc Project Management isn’t EVER mentioned in the acknowledgements. I guess it’s normal but I guess since I almost lost my mind and had three anxiety attacks in one just one week alone I’m feeling salty. I can’t even begin to describe the mental, emotional and spiritual fortitude this took. Again I know I’m preaching to the choir, PM is such a thankless job but argh!
Project estimated to take 5 hours took me 8. What do I do re billing? Partner I never worked for before.
Im someone with a "business" background (supply chain, procurement) that went to work for as a consultant for tech consulting firm after finishing my MBA, but now having trouble finding a project. Got my PSM 1 cert, but not sure what else to do. Not a technical person, never coded. What would you recommend someone in my position to focus on? I'd like to remain on the project management/BA side of the business. TIA!
Editing my cv for FAANG strategy roles (specifically Google and Facebook). Any tips on what to emphasise? Mckinsey + IB background with LBS EMBA; South African so would need that visa sponsership.
Had my HR screen on Friday and the recruiter wants to schedule case interviews next week but I’m traveling for a pre-planned vacation. Is it okay to ask her to push back the follow up rounds?
Is it a good idea to tell you recruiter at the start that you have other interviews going on? Or do you tell them at a later stage
Do you tip the housekeeping staff at the hotel? If so, how much? And do you expense this or consider it part of your per diem?
Hey everyone! I have passed L1 and L2 interviews in Birlasoft, have HR interview tomorrow. Profile - python AWS developer Work exp - 2.5 years, Wipro Limited How much hike should I expect/ask for?
W, St. Regis, or Las Alcobas in Mexico City? Also open to high-end boutique hotel recommendations...
What’s a good answer to the question “Why are you leaving so soon?” For context I have made 2 exit since last year. I was below average at the start of the pandemic and now quite a bit on the upper range. In each instance I was either approached by the recruiter or the hiring manager. Even now the most recent interview was when the company approached me through LinkedIn but still they asked me this question which is quite confusing. I mean you approached me and I like the work you do.
Anyone at Deloitte have some insight on the Strategic Communications and Change Management positions for analyst and consultant? What to expect in the final interview? Base salary + bonus? WLB? Asking for a relative! Deloitte
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
Thoughts on taking a 30 year life insurance policy from bestow? Anyone else that did this? Tia!
Transitioning from contract to full time position. I’m making 104k contracting (shitty but manageable insurance, no other benefits.) Should I ask them to match it? How much should I ask for?
MBB folks at Google Cloud S&O- how do you like the work? Is the work too much Ops focused?
If Trump was right about COVID starting in a Wuhan lab, could... could he be right about other things? He might have actually been a stable genius after all.

One thing moved from consulting to industry - there is no def of done in the traditional company.... one project last 5+ years n keep going.... no one seems to know the full picture, the bottom truth. I tried my very best to keep it together, but with new answers popping up everyday I m mentally exhausted n don't feel like I gain transferable skills for my next career move. Promotion runs on managers promises which may or may not be come true. Now I m thinking about jump....
Have no plans this Friday evening - what should I do? Going to spend some time prepping for interviews/applying to jobs but tips on something solo/self care related that I can also plan?
