As a seasoned consultant with extensive experience in SharePoint and modern web development, what should be the expected compensation (base salary) now that I’m getting into Salesforce (as developer)?
I’ve always had a soft spot for this Milgauss, and now she’s joining the collection. I know it’s polarizing, but it’s just so anti-Rolex that it’s great.

Book recommendation - "Ride of a lifetime" by Robert Iger. Story of someone who started as a studio operator and went on to become the CEO of Walt Disney.
Really relatable to most of us who are employees and not entrepreneurs. Books on Steve Jobs, Elon Musk are all good but I loved Robert's story more as I could relate and aspire. How he takes tough decisions, how he negotiated with Steve Jobs to acquire Pixar, his honesty, humility etc. are all something we can learn from. Go for it fishes 😄

Does anyone have recommendations for self-improvement books written by Asians/Asian-Americans? By self-improvement, I mean any book that has caused you to reflect or positively impacted your life to include philosophy or leadership.
A recruiter reached out for a position I’m super interested in and I responded saying I want to learn more and never heard back. How long should I wait before I follow up?

Manager goes “you must tell the client this during your meeting. It’s very important.” Client goes “what the hell is this? I was never informed of this. I need to talk to your management again.”
All these posts about $$$ concerns. I worked a decade in non-profit marketing, making 70k as associate director.
I’m now a new analyst at Accenture making 82k and feel like a king having very minimal responsibility and making more $.
If you’re making over $100k you have it better than the majority of the US, let alone the rest of the world.
Top consulting firms right there!!
When the client you need to approve your hypercare plan keeps moving the meeting and go live is in 2 weeks. 😡😡😡😡
Does anyone pre make their meals before traveling every week? Have you been able to expense that? What meals do you pre make? I'm getting so sick of eating out during the week.

I know this is a highly specific scenario, but I just want to gather best practices from those who have already figured it out or are working on figuring it out.
Please be kind, yall. I understand there are challenges and pitfalls.
Need your inputs on a situation - my gang (Indian) were dining in an Italian restaurant and when we asked our server for bread, the server said we ran out of bread. However, we saw several other tables getting bread. When we complaint about it to the manager, we got the bread. We told the manager that we felt bad that we had to chase servers to get bread, and asked to change the server. Did we over react? We also felt we were discriminated. Thoughts?
Does anyone has experience at PA Consulting in the People and Change capability? What the customers look like? How is the team? Ops to grow?
Not one of my friends has texted me this weekend. Not to make plans, not even to check in. I have no one with whom to spend a holiday weekend 😢
Does your per diem get paid out to you at your firm? Or is it more like use it or lose it. I know kpmg pays it out
Do any of the top consulting firms hire into the Engagement Manager level after an M7 (if they had manager experience elsewhere)? I know MBB probably doesn’t but what about other tier 2 firms after that - and asking for US or Canada
Do Tech Consulting associates at PwC or Business Technology analysts at Deloitte do any sort of python coding for their job? Work with any datasets using python? I hate coding and want to avoid it.

Anyone done, or know anyone, a graduate degree with Harvard Extension School? Everything says it’s a great program and really tough, but admittedly having hard time getting over the name.
Got the boot last week. Was staffed with extensions till end of year. M sure the issue was a slightly lower utilization for the last performance year. Great snapshots and real time awards. (Contd)
Fellow consultants, i haven’t gone to a movie theater in a year and was thinking of going this weekend, probably regal cinemas. Family wants to see the new Disney movie.
Has anyone gone to a theater recently? Was it safe? We will have kids and high risk people with us. Thoughts?

No. Tell her you plan to tackle her comments first thing tomorrow based on when you received feedback.
This is why I keep a separate work cell. I would text back in a couple hours saying you apologize you have been with family and did not realize she wanted it back over the weekend. You will tackle it first thing tomorrow but to let you know if there’s something urgent that needs to be addressed tonight
A) y’all sound dishonest as crap, glad I don’t work with you, I can’t believe you prefer to pretend you haven’t seen a text or request (also FYI, all that does is invite phone calls) and B) McKinsey, glad to hear you are the epitome of perfection and have never made a mistake in your life and are 100% clear in every communication you have ever made and have never made in error in judgement in your planning and tasks to your team. I commend you on your accomplishments.
For the rest of us mere mortals, I think it’s a lot easier to just be honest and straightforward, respond to texts when I get them, and talk openly about work plans or issues
996 bro. 9am-9pm Mon-Sat. Totally on you
No, I was promoted within 6 months of hire. Do good work and do it efficiently, people will respect you for not being a drone but being efficient and effective.
If you’re in industry, why are you posting in the consulting bowl?

I mean, go with your gut check and give a benefit of doubt to her/team. If I have time on Sunday, and it makes my team’s situation better then I don’t mind working couple of hours on Sunday to get that done.. we all are humans and no one is perfect. If she missed telling you that and work needs to be done and you have time, why not.. if this gets repetitive, then that’s a different conversation.
I would ask if she needs it now or if first thing Monday is ok. If she’s texting though, it may be the reality of her expectations.
Guys, sometimes people make mistakes, maybe the boss is incredibly stressed about something and forgot to mention the deadline, can we give her a break for goodness sake. To my previous comments, just be an adult and respond and say you aren’t working on it currently, otherwise she is sitting there stressed/annoyed/upset and you’re sitting around also stressing for no reason
