I love when the client argues during a status meeting they reviewed more work then reflected but they use descriptive phases like "a whole bunch" or "like at least 10 or 15"....no bitch you didn't.
Since my team moved from an area of the client' building with poor cell service to an area with great cell service, my bathroom break frequency and duration have increase significantly #fishbowl
Anyone else cringe at how often every new client product or creative idea is "really fucking cool"...
Had THE best hook up last night. 💯 Any other 🐠 use project travel for "extracurricular activities"?
Project Managers are the worst fucking people.
What has your experience been like dating someone in the client city? Met someone not on the project and not client. We are hitting it off and cud be bf type, wanna hear how it went for some.
So tired of shifting goalposts and fire drills that just piss off the client. Call the fucking MW and end this nonsense
Anyone interview with Google for a project manager role? If so, what was your experience? Glassdoor makes it difficult to weed thru reviews.
Who got it worse than me? Onboarded a project as lead the day before ramp. Project doesn’t have a proper sow, proposal deck, clear cut deliverables, scope, or a timeline other than due date cont.
Cute girl sitting next to me at the bar at W but she's so into her nook that she won't look up. Yes I'm still at a client site :(
Staffed on a project but proposal team won't let me go and wants to talk to the PPD. Wtf. Fuck off unless I can start billing this proposal.
If Trump was a consultant. Client: can you deliver this? Trump: I'll tell you at that time. I'll keep you in suspense
So done with petty power games within our own teams, how the fuck are we supposed to fix client issues when we can't keep our shit in order 😬
Chances I could tell my client to fuck himself without getting fired? Would only do it verbally, not via email.
Just got on the bench and I’m really considering trying to transfer to AFS. I have a puppy and my last role was remote so it was easy to be with him but I don’t want to get on a traveling project...
Can I get in trouble if my senior manager wants to bring my significant other on a project that I’m already on? I won’t be her direct supervisor... figured it’s no different than dating a co worker.
So the VP of HR at my client was caught with a prostitute in his office this past weekend. Booooom!
Not crashing anymore.

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...
How many first year analysts here started as interns? What did you guys do to get those jobs?
Nice! The post animation looks good!

Possibly silly question. Im new here. What does “fishbowl” actually refer to? Is it the conference rooms we are stuck in and people walk my looking at us? Or is it something else?
I know this is positive, but I'll just say my debt is quite a bit more than $7200. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/on-leadership/wp/2015/09/22/pwc-to-help-employees-pay-back-their-student-loans/
If your healthcare proposal you were on wants you to join the project but you were in finance, how hard is it to do? There is significant mutual interest
Anyone have useful health tips?
Hey folks, I have my first call with a McKinsey & Company recruiter tomorrow and thinking about how to answer the dreaded “salary expectation” question. I’m currently at 185k base, is that pretty typical of manger / senior manager level? Any tips would be helpful!
Being the "black sheep" because you do something other than blue collar, and people have no idea what you do
Where I was born the life expectancy was 39. Today I just beat that 🎂. From bombings and refugee camps to home in SF & ajob that I’m good at and where I’m valued. I cannot express how thankful I am.
What salary range would you describe as middle class. LCOL I considered my family middle class when my dad made 50k in the 90s. Life seemed alright. 25 years later my dad and I both are at around 170, but I still consider us middle class like we were in the 90s, but now it feels like more of a struggle
Almost brought a BCG umbrella to work today. Does bringing stuff branded with competitors' names matter (home office, not client office)?
