OP - you literally answered your own question. Not bad, just made more sense

Not necessarily. Is it a high risk area? Are you tight on budget and they just want to bang it out? Could be a number of reasons. If you're concerned, you should ask.

Likely not a great sign if you started it and a senior was swapped out after one day.

Just time sensitive and they wanted to send someone with more exp and I wasn’t really following what they were explaining. First year audit too and trying to figure things out. Lots of work over it

Okay thanks. Just thought it looked bad on my part.

It’s pretty cool that they thought of you to do it in the first place :)

Feel you OP- I was on a first year and did 70% of the walkthroughs as an associate. They brought more people out because it was too much and I was definitely in over my head. Best thing is that next year you will Know exactly how to prepare and be ready

Greetings Fishers,

I joined at Consultant level and was trained on SAP. However, I took up PMO role because of no prior experience and hence inability to grab functional roles in project.

Imagine for a moment that all strategic consulting firms in the region would have consultants work no later than 9pm. Do you think the quality of the output would decrease? Or maybe the pricing the client is willing to pay would be lower? Or perhaps nothing would happen? I am thinking whether we work long hours because it’s by now part of work approach and culture or because we need to. (Personal experience: in London for my same firm I used to work much less and the output was great…)
