I always have it on when starting, and when I see the client having it off, I make sure he sees how I am turning it off too to follow to what he prefers. I dont say I am turning it off, I just take a little of time on purpose so that he/she sees me all dressed up and professional turning the camera off.

Hohohohoho

I say let the consultant continue doing it if they want to. In my opinion, it’s mutually beneficial if both parties do but don’t want to pretend like I know the other parties situation or reasons for not turning it on

My client never does so I don’t, if they were to then I would do it. Maybe just tell the consultant there’s no need to go on video.

If you know the person already in persona, video is not needed unless everyone switches it on. Just my own opinion

With new prospects and clients I ask anyone presenting to turn their video on. Formal presentations the same. Daily and weekly normally scheduled meetings I and my teams follow the client's lead. I have asked some employees to upgrade their internet speeds if they can't handle due to connection performance.

You sound fun

Something’s been weighing on my mind. I messed up in a steering committee & tripped infront of the Sr. Client Stakeholders.

Now I find out he might’ve been laid off and I can’t help but to think it was my fault. We never really talked after this engagement but I feel like it’s my clumsiness that him fired and it makes me feel guilty and give a me anxiety.

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week.

Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true?
