I am currently working as a Level 3 Consultant (Project Management) at £48k, is this in line with the norm? And advices?
Indecisive about relocating to Bangalore and applying for a relocation to Kolkata instead. I am a fresher who joined at the beginning of this year (staffed in project) and my base location is Bangalore,2days wfo. The primary reason to move to Kolkata being the cheaper cost of living. FOMO the life/culture in Bangalore and job opportunities there, are the reasons why I haven't asked for a location change yet. I anyways plan on moving to Bangalore once I can afford it. What would be a better pick?
Do people ever get caught lying about hours? I can see other associates hours, and there is one person who gets online at 10 and off by 4 but still some how manages to put 10 hrs down of billables. I work so hard just to honestly put that many hours in so it’s frustrating. Just wondering if it ever catches up to people.
Thoughts on connecting a family member to client that does similar work? Not asking for a job but just networking.
I got box braids and the client told the supervisor in my team that I need to remove them it isn't professional & he doesn't like it. Supervisor is now asking me to take them off...
Hi Sharks Any one working as QA in AT&T project in Tech Mahindra ?? I just wanted to know about project, client and work culture.Any one currently working or already worked in same account please throw some light here..
I recently joined the brand side as a junior client and I’m really struggling in creative reviews to not sound like a junior moron. Does anyone have any tips or workshops they’ve taken to give better feedback on the spot? I realize creatives will take more senior opinions more seriously, so I really just want to add something to the conversation. I do take notes during the review and am learning the brand day by day, but feel like I sound young and dumb when I just agree with my colleagues
Hi, my name is Brian Specht, and I'm a Client Partner / Director at Slalom. I'm here to answer your questions throughout the day related to consulting, esp. technology consulting, so ask away!
I suspect a client may be involved with money laundering. The manager kind of brushed off my concerns. Should I call the ethics hotline or go directly to the police?
Hi Experts, One of my frnd put his resign in TCS on 20Sept21 but he want early release i.e. on 10th Oct. But HR said as you are critical resource so project has not approved your early release and you need to serve complete notice period. Any consequences he will face if he left on 10th oct?? When he can expect his relieving/Servuce letter in such case. Also will he face any negative legal action if he abscond after 10th and If he join another conpany will it be legally wrong for him?
I saw a fellow consultant wearing shorts to a fairly formal client site (I.e. clients never wear shorts and are typically in business casual at minimum, often with blazers on). Should I say something?
Have joined Mindtree a month back still no client interview, & hearing from other people on bench that client interviews are hard to crack here, I'm bit stressed now, can someone tell how long it takes for a client interview & what's the level of client interview here?
Thoughts on how to open new clients when at a boutique firm? At a large firm, I had no problems getting prospects to take meetings or respond to invitations to lunch or attend a seminar we were hosting. Now at a small boutique firm and can barely get a response. Even warm intros from very satisfied former clients go cold after they learn I'm with a small firm. Are there specific messages that land better when coming from a small shop?

Has anyone made the switch from agency PM to internal PM? I'm looking to switch from managing an external client's projects to managing internal company projects, but feel like I'm having a hard time getting interviews. -How did you market your skills? -How did you find job postings?
I just put in my resignation & teared up telling my client (he’s been my cheerleader for growing my career since day 1). Shout out to all of the men who empower women in their careers, they’re gems.
Is “detail oriented” a lost skillset with the incoming workforce? How do you train a junior person to pay acute attention to details? Coordinators have always been the last line of defense as social content goes out the door, or as social calendars are prepared for review by client. The coordinators in the mid 20s that I’ve been hiring, despite impressive graduate programs and other jobs, have had no ability to catch typos, errors, or make sure 2 things match. I’m at my wits end - any advice?

If I got laid off, can my friends at other firms submit me for a referral bonus to be hired as an experienced associate/staff? Or is the entire point to poach from direct competitors?
Hi Guys. Need help evaluating two offers: 1. McKinsey - Associate in Risk Consulting - $165K base/30K sign-on. NYC/Chicago. 2. Facebook - Program Manager in Security and Privacy - $160K base/$100K RSUs over 4 years/$20K sign-on. Bay Area I have 6 YOE at Deloitte in Cyber since graduating college. Has always been a desire to work at McK but don’t plan to stay in Consulting long term. Was all set to join McK until this offer came along. Any advice on what factors I need to consider?
Any former analysts here leave before their first year was up? Regret it or happier now? (Also list ex-firm if you’re comfortable)
How do you obtain info on how much clients pay people in similar role? I'm negotiating my salary later this month and want data. (Recruiters? Ask clients you are friends with?)
I joined FB to try and break into consulting. I asked if anyone was willing to refer, and multiple people responded. One of those people happened to be a Partner. I now work in consulting, and I just wanted to thank all of you who give referrals freely. It may seem common inside of consulting, but when you are coming from industry, it can be challenging to breakthrough. Thank you all for your willingness to help and give advice. It has made a difference in my life
So who consults the consultants?
Any other 🐠 struggle with weight loss? I'm not overweight but would like to lose some to be healthier. I work out 4-5 times per week, try to eat well but see no results and it's frustrating.
I wanna hear your inspirational stories! Has anyone gotten a 30% bump starting as a manager? (Currently an M2 with base salary as 133k and wondering if there are opportunities out there with that big of a jump)
I need to get a pulse check on my sanity... i live in Michigan, and sports gambling has become legal in the past year. Now every other commercial is about sports gambling, sports announcers are making in game advertisements, I get hit with social media ads, so on and so forth. I’m not against sports gambling, but the constant promotion seems like “corporate America” is taking advantage of addictive human tendencies, and contributing to the perpetuation of wealth inequality in America.. am I nuts
That’s super unintuitive, if true https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/too-risky-to-wed-in-your-20s-not-if-you-avoid-cohabiting-first-11644037261
I’m losing my mind. I’ve had nothing to do for the last two weeks even after telling manager and leadership. I’m still called a high performer and my ratings reflect that. 😭
