Is it ok to bill the time that the shareholder explains the project to me? If so, how do you describe when billing?
I just joined Accenture, and I was told that I need to ask my manager for permission and justification for a Mac. Do I need to wait until I’m assigned to a project, or should I just ask my normal manager? Also, am I good to just start downloading tech (Python, Sublime, etc.) I need for my job, or do I have to wait for that?
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!
Any suggestions on the most effective way of telling the client to cut the shit on endless revisions cycles, wanting to see options and needing to see something to react to on a website project with a very small budget?
I’m very into indian arts culture and myself learned classical dance forms (3), Carnatic singing, and violin, but I am interested to hear about some more arts you all might be engaging in as hobbies or passions. I really like to work with my hands to create something. Right now I’m working on a project to learn interior design using high end, business professional desi design patterns in my apt. What are some other nice arts culture hobbies inspired by India?
Had another AD help my CW on a brief while I was on PTO for a couple of days, and is now refusing to get off the project and letting me do my job. I'm all for collaboration and appreciate the three hours he worked on it, but it's getting to the point that he's trying to steamroll me out of my own team and project by not letting me have any input on my own work. It's starting to really impact the output and dynamics. What do I do?
Any advice for trying to get off a project at Deloitte? My project just keeps getting extended through next year and I have zero interest in the client or solution line. I’m brought it up to my coach who told me just to stick it out.
My ~60 person group at my firm has only 5 women in it. Is there any excuse at all for this? Every project I’m on feels like the old boys club
I am creating so much documentation I know this client will let sit and rot and nobody will maintain it.
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?
I Want to maintain engagement and morale on a long project and staring an MS Teams Channel to post recognition and engagement events with staff. Stumped on what to call it… any suggestions? So far “Good news and more” is all I got. TIA
New to freelance: 40 hours/week in contract but put on a high profile project that requires weekend work or overtime. Bill? If so, how would you go about it since the contract is 40 hours/week? Should I just include it in the invoice/timesheet or should I also plan to have a conversation with my supervisor or HR or Accounts Payable beforehand? Also keeping in mind that I hope to get contract extended, which is in my contract [tentative].

I’m at a boutique firm in Upstate New York with 2.5 years experience including litigation, medical depositions, appellate briefs and a pending brief before the Court of Appeals.

Average performance bonus for BA @ Mckinsey?
Looking to buy a portable laptop for myself. I’m a data engineer by profession and most of the time spend time on the company machine which is a pretty beefy windows laptop. But thinking of getting a MacBook Pro for myself. My personal machine is mainly used for pet projects, certification exams, online learning and rarely for consultation in academia seminars and freelance work (which is usually in the cloud). Mac is good but it’s a bit on the expensive end. What’s your personal machine?
