Shortest duration ever on a project?
Tricky situation: Got asked by the client I’m on if I’d like to join the team we’re serving. I know EY has a non-compete with clients. Thoughts/suggestions on how to navigate?
I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized. Joined a larger supposedly hip consultancy with local market model with great expectations and am finding myself let down by the experience - the client, work, teamwork and collaboration, technical content is not per what was promised and feels like I am back to my b4 days. I was a fool to fall for the kumbaya in consulting crap - I am best developing products with great teams. Industry looks down on me. What are my options?

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!
Hi Guys, I am a new member on this platform. I'm looking for a role change and wish to work in the consulting space (strategy/management/supply chain/business). I have 5 years of experience in the textile industry. I've had the opportunity to work on the manufacturing and sourcing side managing supply chain for international clients. I'm currently providing freelance consulting services on project basis. Any of your referrals to job openings at consulting firms would really help. Thanks
Not sure if y’all have been in a similar situation but I’m staffed on a project that is mindless busy work and I feel like I’m not progressing in my career. Makes me ponder where I went wrong in life sometimes: How did I do a top-tier MBA just to take a step back in my career? My job pre MBA was way more analytically challenging. Not sure if I’m being super negative or are some of these thoughts normal? Is it WFH syndrome? Thoughts on how to cope?

How is the billable rate for each associate determined at your firm? Does everyone in the same class bill out at the same rate?
Im a third year associate and I’m frequently asked to give presentations (on new case law, legislation, ect.) during a weekly meeting for my section. There’s a first year associate and a law clerk in my section who are never asked to present. Should I push back on this? Would it look bad if I delegate some of the work to the others? I spend a lot of non billable time prepping for these presentations...it seems unfair that I’m the only one who has to do them.
Might be a dumb question but can someone explain the difference between product/ project/ program management?
What do background checks actually comprise of? More specifically wondering if I claimed an internal project on my resume which I have no supporting evidence for (for instance, I lead xyz group, but it’s not a formal position at my firm), will this be an issue?
What are your average billable hours? Month / year? What type of practice are you in? Are you on the Cravath scale? What associate year?
Dear SM, stop trying to make yourself look valuable by making us do bullshit analysis that means nothing and that would never ever get put in front of the client

So, Trump is giving corporations a 20% tax break and is taking away the tax benefit of contributing to your 401k. So he effectively took our money and gave it to corporations. Take that middle class.
