This is stirring the pot but I truly have only met a few Account Managers that are good at managing clients. I’ve been in the industry for many years at this point I can only name maybe 5 Account Managers who truly knew what they were doing. Learn to push back on unreasonable requests, provide solutions, and advocate for your client AND the agency (not JUST the client). The amount of weekends I’ve had to work because of incompetent AMs who believe their job function is to say yes to everything😭
What is deloitte's project controller group?
Why would a Consulting company use their Associates as project managers? I’ve been on back to back projects as a project manager, just inquiring why I would manage as opposed to work on a work stream.
How far out can you typically set up interviews? Can I take two weeks before first interview?
Someone is conducting a job interview during breakfast in the Marriott lounge. Everyone can hear the questions/answers. It's for a sales job. This is weird.

I just got into sim racing. Got a good deal on Logitech g920 and have f gt lite seat coming soon soon. Am playing project cars 2, assetto corsa, and Dirt rally 2.0. Any others into racing? It seems pretty fun but a huge learning curve to drive remotely reasonable and barely getting beyond 3rd gear before crashing unless it's a huge straightaway. Not sure if it's skill or settings.

Hey fish, need some career advice. I recently got promoted to senior! We have been working on a client deliverable to close a project and my current engagement has two made directors who I work with directly( one just got promoted from SM this July ) . During one of our discussions in putting this doc together, I may have come out as “aggressive”/“opinionated . I’m generally the quiet one , asking for feedback and listening in mostly. I didn’t realize it in the moment but at that point (contd)
What do firms actually look at when evaluating people for partnership? I feel like the majority of partners in my section lack organization, leadership ability, management skills, or even good client management skills. It seems more like they were just the ones that stuck around and kept billing a ton. Is this the norm?
After I get my H1B. Do I stop ticking the “need sponsorship” while applying for new jobs?
First time GMAT, scored a 650. Practice tests were coming in around 680, but bombed quant (41Q, 38V, 8 IR). I am confident that I can score better my next time around, but out of curiosity, what rank of school could I possibly get into with this score? 2 years work experience B4 consulting, very solid undergrad involvement/GPA. Trying to decide if it’s worth applying to my target schools this year or if I delay for another year in order to study more.
Do you think consulting a good place to have a first/second child? Some pros I gathered include decent maternity leave policies and the ability to come back into the same job because we are project based. Industry (tech) would have better WLB and insurance, but I heard in most cases your job will have changed when you come back from leave.

Anybody here that knows about the work culture at Nokia in the Noida office or in general?
I have a question, but to put it in context takes more characters than this allows--I'll explain more in a reply. Briefly, I struggled through seven miserable years of teaching until I finally got asked back by a school in 2019. My classroom management was disastrous; I knew it, but couldn't seem to fix it. Then I took a seminar, and got better. It really was that simple, though of course I'm still learning. So, can classroom management be taught? I believe so, but no one else seems to agree.

Interviewed on the brand side with a very well known beauty company. They wanted to take my 5 years of experience and only pay $65k (NYC). The recruiter said I should really be flexible and be open to a salary cut if I want to move to the brand side. I know this such bullshit having done other interviews in the past.
