Was told by higher ups to present work in a client meeting specifically because I’m a woman and they wanted to hear from a woman’s POV. My boss said he would do the set up and hand it over to me. He steamrolled the whole thing and I never even got to open my mouth. He apologized to me via slack during the meeting, but still proceeded to bogart the conversation. Should I send him a polite but firm email calling him out?
Senior Analyst casually seeing a Manager (same ages, same client, different teams) - Thoughts?
I have a background in computer engineering but after 4 years of consulting I feel like the only jobs I’d be qualified for are project management type roles. I’m considering doing a coding boot camp..
Hi all. Anyone work in Aero/Auto Industry? My fiancé worked in Formula 1 in Europe and she moved here but F1 is not big here. She is looking for a Project/Product Manager type role. She’s very smart with an amazing background. A potential referral here would be mutually rewarding and appreciated. Thank you!

I'm currently a senior and am working on training another senior on a specific project type. She consistently does not get work done. We are going to miss a client deadline today because of this. I've been told by a director to let her fail. But man, I hate missing client deadlines.
Are first-year audits just a part of life if your client base is mostly small private companies? I’ve worked on three this year so far and would like to never do that again.

What are your experiences with client interactions with your fee schedule? Any best practice advice or mistakes you have made in the process?
Any social people have best practices abt reaching out to influencers via insta dm directly from a brand account? This is very much for a side project and NOT my current role.
That awkward moment when almost everyone from your project team asks did you go see Black Panther this past weekend...
Don’t understand why would a big 4 hire someone and not assign a project/client directly, instead have to go through the bench process and then wait to be assigned.
My manager just quit today for a busy season client that starts right after the new year. I’m a newly promoted senior and we don’t have the capacity to get a new manager on the job. Are there any steps you would recommend I take? I’m terrified
I want to pivot from Marketing (project management to Talent Acquisition.
I have two job offers 🥳
1. Talent Associate
2. Talent Sourcer
the second pays way better. If I take offer 2 will that still allow me to develop as a TA specialist further down the line?
What's the type of work look like in S&O.. Say Finance or SC folks? What are typical engagements, deliverables, client sponsors, etc?

The feeling when your staff didn't send well formatted slides, so you're editing because the partner wants them tonight 😩

Is telling an interviewer for an industry position that ONE of the reasons you want to leave Consulting is bc of the travel schedule a good idea or not?
I wish I had people around me that I can just hang out and go to a bar with, all my friends are married or really far. I need a community. (Not just a virtual ♥️ FB)
My friend is struggling to switch from hospitality management (trendy foodie spot) into ANY office position, despite 8 years experience in HR & payroll (asking 60k). Sounds reasonable, any ideas?
Nah it’s okay, you can give me a project while I’m on holiday and ask it be done while I’m still on holiday. I need a true getaway!

I’m in a small charter school. We don’t have a decent gym and no field. Our sports programs include soccer, cross-country, and judo. Anyone else have innovative ideas for inexpensive sports?
The cutest wanna be consultant
Welp so much for my assumption that traffic would be lite bc of Columbus Day, heaviest traffic I’ve seen in awhile, making my flight is definitely a gamble at this point
Anyone well connected to offices in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, or France? Looking to make a jump but have limitations due to my network.
Anyone on the mini pill (progestin only)? If so, what was your experience? I started having ocular migraines, so Dr. Switched me from combined pill. I'm worried about this pill not being as effective, and I'm married, so the idea of using condoms with bc pill seems terrible unless absolutely necessary.
Anyone used any good processes / structures for RFP responses? My team has a completely ad hoc approach. Different partners drop in at different points of the process to provide differing feedback and direction. It results in lots of rework, a disjointed story, and quality issues.
