After a freelance project with an agency you had never worked with prior, is it normal to feel like “nah, they aren’t gonna ever call me back for another.”
Are brand manifestos necessary? I’ve been doing branding for 12 years and both agency and clients put so much focus on it but it never really gets used/read after project is live.
My project is ending in December what I should do..? How much time ahead they will inform me before rolling me off ? Should I get support from RM to find next project a month advance?

Hello guys, my colleague said he's facing issues with his client's Oracle database. He said it took his team 8 weeks to query the database. Database size is 3TB. Eventually, he wants to delete all data from the database and then shrink the database. The deletion will probably take forever to happen too. How can he optimize queries to the database? And how can he eventually delete all data fast and shrink the database successfully?
Will you be able to wear this to your client office? What about internal meetings? They look super comfy but are they versatile?

I’m new to the firm. My third project my manager was very hands off. He’s wants to have a discussion with me about my performance. He did not give me any support to work with; even when I asked! And my direct manager agrees with him, but it was my third week. What to do? I feel like I’m going to say something crazy. Any advice?
I work in FP&A consolidations at a large sell side bank. I moved internally after working in the planning group of a Working Capital Solutions business. I often feel like I would enjoy client facing or advisory work because it would help me build a skill that could translate to me potentially running my own advisory firm one day… I feel my role just looks at numbers on a page which doesn’t help me develop translatable subject matter skills or expertise. I don’t want to be a robot. Any advice?

What do they look for in the HBS interviews? are the stats “irrelevant” now? As in, you checked that box to get an interview now and it’s about something else? I ask, because I’m reading a ton of rejects with much higher stats (GPA/GMAT) than mine and now am concerned I barely made it and it will still drag me down.
Have any of you used zoom for more than meetings? Curious what sorts of interesting things people are getting up to.

Anyone recommend their apartment complex? Had my living situation fall through last minute and am moving to LA in a week. I will be working downtown and I have a dog.

I’ve applied to over 40 jobs since I was laid off in March. Not one click to my portfolio, per analytics. With a family of four, we are being spread thin. Not only is the income desperately needed, but my creative soul needs a release. I would be happy to do typical Art Director work but I’m “over qualified” for that and am never taken seriously when applying for work below CD/ACD. If anyone needs or know of any company needing freelance work, large or small—I’d really appreciate the lead. 🙏
Happy Hanukkah! For those who are not Jewish, Hanukkah starts tonight. Teachers who are Jewish (or not), do any of you share, include or educate your students about the holiday?

Hi! I'm moving to AWS business ops L6. I'm coming from the energy industry, 8 yoe. I'm curious about internal mobility in AWS because as much as I enjoy business ops, I've also been involved in corporate strategy and business development in my current company and would definitely want to explore these in AWS too. Product management is also exciting since the scope covers what I like doing.
I'd love to hear insights on internal transfers in AWS. Thanks!
Currently facilitating strategy workshops for clients and internal teams. I want to get an MBA to get a technical skill set. Is part time a good option? I’m in the DC area and hoping to stay in consulting or break into tech on the strategy side.

I feel high high's and low low's within the same span of the day. One moment, I'm top of the world and think I'll make it thru the next promo cycle because of a recent feedback I received. Next minute, I'm down and depressed and don't think I have a chance cos I may have seen an appreciation/reward email from the leadership and I wasn't nominated. Is this something normal in consulting? 😩
