I was rejected at Netflix right after passing the recruiter screening. The reason given is that they're looking for someone who has worked on longer-term projects. I worked on my last project for 2 years and have a 6 year project on my resume as well. I guess they don't like that I've been an independent consultant for the last four years and was on 4 projects during that time. Has anyone else encountered this kind of bias against independents working on shorter-term projects?
My project is requiring a lot of time commitment during early hours and evening and it’s getting hard to pick up LO from day care. I wanted advise frm ppl who have hired help for pick/drop off.

Running my first client meeting today with MD in tow and already delivering bad news to the client... how do you prepare and deal with the stress
What's the best way to prepare a business case presentation? I've been invited to a final round interview for a medical device company as a process optimization consultant. They sent me a client case study. In the case there are pain points of the client, and some numbers to analyze their workflow and recommend them to use their medical devices for process improvement. I'm not sure how to stucture it. how would you approach it?
I feel like every dude I've followed in advertising has one solid client (or less) and then just up and starts an agency. Where are the women starting shops that I don't know about?

Advise working with a coworker who doesn't "answer the question directly": I just joined a new company and I am starting to work with a coworker but I feel like he tends to deflect my questions all the time and he often gives a vague/BS answer. FOR EXAMPLE, I stepped in reviewing the list of deliverables needed for the project, I provided my input but instead of discussing the actual context, he would just gave me a bunch of historical background information. How do I "cut to the chase"?

East coast senior manager here - Is it okay to text my staff consultants at 11pm PST since I cant remember to read my emails? Also, when I lie to the client, is it okay to then blame my team, or would that get me in trouble?

Survey time! Let’s say you put on weight during Covid - enough that clothes don’t fit but not so much that your BMI is too high or you’re very unhealthy. Would you buy a new wardrobe? Or would you try to lose the weight ASAP assuming everyone has to be back in office / client sites in July??
Goddamn, I don't want to compromise my integrity but my engagement manager and my manager are pressuring me to eat billable hours because we're over budget and we don't want to anger the client. Fts.
Anybody know the difference between management v. operations consulting in the fed-gov space? Which one is more project based as opposed to staff-aug?
I love when people quit for a better buyside role and you can see the jealousy in everyone's eyes - especially the older people who know they have to treat them as a client now.
What do you do if you’re feeling burnt out? I’m not working that hard anymore on my current project, I just don’t find any satisfaction, interest, or challenge in the work. I’ve been staffed on the project for almost a year. Recently I’ve really struggled to find day to day motivation and I still have to hang on another month before roll off.
Out sick one day and worked from home. Come in the next day and male client asks me in front of the entire team “are you pregnant?” (I’m not) 😐 is this very inappropriate or am I overreacting?

What should I recommend to my parents (less than five years to retirement) on what they should do with their 401k?
Please help. I was laid off this past week. I am international and my OPT is coming to an end very soon. I had a call with an immigration lawyer and Deloitte unfortunately does not offers additional support for immigrants aside from said call. I am in need of a job ASAP. I have until July 24th to find a job or I will have to start a new educational program or leave the US. Leaving the US is personally not a viable option. Skills: AWS Solutions Architect Associate Certified, Power BI (cont.)
At which role one gets hired in deloitte consulting with an experience of 2.7 years in India? Can we expect a Consultant role?
First year associate here - really freaked out by FS layoffs and think I might be next. How am I supposed to find another job after 6 months?
Can we talk about those senior consultants that give you attitude when you propose them to embark in a project (with great follow up opportunities) and refuse because they think it is not fitting with their “career” plan and they want to “manage resources”? How do you deal with that ? TBH: I’m shocked with such attitudes. Which manager never had to work on content tbh?
How do you spend the Summer (if you’re not in the classroom)? Are you relaxing and recharging or are you engaging in some type of content specific or pedagogical training?
MBB recruiter said I'd hear about my application (whether or not I'd get an interview) by today. haven't heard a word - what should I do? I'm thinking of sending a gentle reminder tomorrow morning, but definitely don't want to look pushy

Dropping this in a few bowls, sorry if you see it twice. I'm transitioning from teaching 8th grade mathematics at a public school to teaching a 7/8 self-contained classroom at a charter school. Any advice for teaching mixed grade levels or multi subject is appreciated: scheduling, classroom setup, subject order, behavior management, etc. I'm struggling to find my rhythm with only 6 weeks before kids return. Thanks to everyone for your commitment and time, enjoy your summer!
