My peer compiles reports and will send me emails while cc’ing client management—which is fine but she gives me a deadline for the same day and a deadline that she established herself (the report is for a meeting sometime next week). WTF!!!!
Being sent to a client in Des Moines …what is there to even do? Any trendy places to eat/drink? Help
How do I get my old project to leave me alone? I rolled off, but they keep calling me in for little things. My new project leads are okay with it for now, but I want it to end. What to do?
Which project management tools would you recommend to keep track of multiple different work streams and action items across 8-10 ongoing projects? I don’t want to use this collaboratively with other stakeholders but mainly for me to track as the PM. Are there any tools except “Planner” that can be used with MS Teams? Thank you @
Thankful for WFH during my morning sickness. Puking 3x a day is way less awkward at home than at the client site
Desi ppl , struggling a bit with verbal communication since I moved to US. Sometimes can’t find words during client meeting so do a lot of ‘aaa’s , ‘Kind of’s and ‘sort of’. How can I improve it? I do watch English series a lot and read books but looking for other ideas that may have helped you all . Are there are classes which helps with fluency ?
How have you all been setting boundaries from work? I've been working 10-12 hour days now since March and I'm just really struggling. And the rest is not because I do not get my work done. My client right now stretches between NY to AZ and Asia hours. So I start at 8:30/9am and do not get off the phone until 10pm, sometimes 11pm.
How’d you get into project management? Want to change fields and find myself more interested in the managing and execution of technical projects.
Hey everyone - when is the most appropriate time to alert a firm you are in a relationship with another co-worker? My SO and I are currently the same rank but one of us is up for promotion to manager this year end. I should also mention we are at the same client but on different projects. We currently don’t see this being a huge conflict of interest but perhaps this is naive thinking. We only recently began dating so that’s why we’re are unsure how to best approach. Would appreciate any insight.
What pair of black dress shoes would you recommend for daily wear at the client site? (Typically just wear a button down and slacks with the occasional blazer)
The Senior reporting into me has clearly been taking advantage of being semi on the bench even though we are working on a small project. It's 10 a.m. on the East Coast. Wake up, John Doe!!

I recently joined Deloitte (experienced hire with 4 yoe from ACN), I’m staffed on a project for the partner that recruited me. The partner told me to record every call (internal and external) and when I asked if just needed notes she said she wants a recording of every one....is this normal Deloitte behaviour?
I need a mid-level brand designer helping me out on a project through the month of October (should be strong in building layouts with a branding focus). A workload of 4 hours each day. If you are interested please DM with your hourly rate and a portfolio link.
Debating taking a Leave of Absence due to mental health and would appreciate some opinions. Pretty sure I have severe depression, some of which stemming from work. Performance on current project has been impacted by my mental health - think I’d be let go after returning from a LoA bc of it. Either I take a LoA now and focus on looking for new jobs or ride out current project until I can find a new job.

Started horseback riding lessons yesterday after 14 years. It was heaven. I literally forgot where I was, and all the problems I have faced in the last couple of years with my ex-husband. I had to jolt myself back to reality when I got off. Such an incredible experience and can't wait to go again! ❤️🐎
How often does big 4 hire applicants that a recruiting agency found? Recruiter reached out to me for a position I would be great for? Is this worth pursuing or is it better to wait for a referral?
Which one is better in terms of career growth, job security, hikes and wlb. 1- PWC India - kolkata location (hometown) 2- Accenture - Bangalore (relocation not an issue) Fixed and joining bonus is same. Variable in ACN is 27%. PWC variable is not mentioned and is performance based. Also I heard that ACN is not that good with variables. Thanks in advance.
Why did Deloitte’s federal practice have layoffs? Given that the clients are large government entities. I can understand it happening in commercial but federal makes no sense
