Not at all. I gave one of my clients a thank you card with a hand written message and she loved it. We've had a great ongoing relationship, she always takes my calls and meetings. Great way to develop long lasting business development relationships as long as it is genuine.

I see it like a thank you note when you resign from a job. You never know when you might need to have a client help you out down the road and they are more likely to remember you in a positive light if you leave a note

Not if it is sincere and heartfelt

If you're doing it to be a brown noser then yes. If its genuine then no.

Lol of course it’s genuine. We just wrapped up a 5 month project...was a rough ride, so want to be appreciative of their support.

I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)

I get that she’s much more senior (I’m a 1st year who started a couple of months ago) but I don’t think I’ve done a bad job at all. My first brief was spot on arguments wise and didn’t have much redlines. Am I reading too much into it? Should I check in with him to ask if he’s unhappy with my work?

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
