I head at Collaborative you get every other Friday off. Do you actually get to take it off or do you end up getting pulled into client work?
Here’s what agencies need to do: only hire serious talent, not put 15 teams on each project, let the 1-2 teams who works on it see it through and have responsibility for making it happen...
Finally built up the courage to take full advantage of the beach by visiting the gf on a weekday. At 8:30pm I got an email saying be back for a project by 8:30am tomorrow. She lives 4 hours away...
An idea. Each of our firms have incredibly bright and talented people. Some are currently “on the bench” with idle time. So why not put these minds to use saving lives? Here’s the idea: Continued
My work friend told me their therapist said to them that they were the most antisocial and negative energy feeding client they ever had. I never want to be friends with this person because being evil aside, who has sufficiently poor judgment to share this with a work colleague? Am I being harsh?
Forgot to set an alarm for my 5am client call. Luckily the adrenaline of the moment enabled me to talk normally within a second of waking up from the phone ring. Happy Thursday!

SOS! Need to set up a lunch with a higher profile client who doesn’t drink alcohol in NYC (so food needs to be on point, and a view is preferable!). Group of 10-20 people total combined client and agency. Any recommendations for places to make a reservation? Tried Restoration Hardware Rooftop and they only take parties of six and no private events.. but thinking something in that vein where there’s a potential activity (aka walking around) and not JUST drinking!
Really want to make the switch to client side, but nervous I don’t have all the qualifications for CRM analyst/manager. I love strategy/data. Thoughts/ideas?
Looking for some advice! I am currently employed as a Project Coordinator. I am looking into ways to to advance my skill sets and move forward in my career. Thoughts/recommendations on a Scrum Master certification? Anyone know of remote entry level jobs open in this field? TIA

Deloitte 🐠 (+ others if applicable), what do you have to do admin wise if you get married abroad and your spouse is not joining you in US yet? For example, tracking & trading sounds like it’s going to be complicated. Also don’t feel like wasting money by adding them to the insurance plan if they aren’t in US yet.

Looking to refer a friend for the USDC. She has been an at-home parent for most of the last 5 years but has gone back to high school teaching this year. I think she would be great since her background and degree are in writing, editing, etc. She is already exhausted from teaching in the pandemic. Any recommendations for how to refer or vouch for her?
ADVICE NEEDED: I’ve started to work closer with a teammate (same title as me). I’ve noticed she is lacking basic social and client industry knowledge. Doesn’t understand content types, can’t analyze campaign performance, etc. It’s difficult to work with her bc there is a gap in level of work output. She can be a bit defensive if I make recommendations or give her tips. How do I help her learn, without coming across as a know it all or patronizing, esp since we have the same title?
Hi! I’m a solution analyst, hired on a year ago as a campus hire. What is the typical raise associated with promotion to solution specialist? Is there a merit-based raise as well as a separate promotion raise? Just want an idea of what to expect. I’m also curious regarding the performance splits—how much more of a raise can a top performer expect than an average performer? Thanks!
Does anyone work in cloud strategy? I am just about to matriculate out of ccg into cloud strategy group at Deloitte. What sort of work do they actually do? (I’ve seen previous posts but not much detail) Also, do other Big 4, ACN and MBB also have cloud strategy practices? If so, how do they compare?

Best credit card for travel perks?
Unexpectedly leaving consulting for industry. Background isn’t in apparel but got an offer to join a large international apparel company as a product director and decided to make the jump. Current TC is $183k with annual bonus between 10-20%. New TC will be $200k, $50k signing, annual bonus of 15-40%, and progression path to VP. Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.
Anybody care to share the major differences going from B4 to MBB outside of just the type of work? Example, commitment levels, talent development, flexibility to select projects etc
