Don't even care that I am going to be waking up at ungodly hours and that i'll be running a project for my least favorite client... because I'll be in Chicago baby!
Tips for declining but not really declining a project? Think I may have committed career suicide already...
I was talking to a first year at a different consulting firm who mentioned that even as a first year, he gets plenty of project staffing options. Is this the norm? I got pigeonholed early
When your Midwestern client discovers the remnant henna on your hands from your friends wedding and thinks you have skin disease #cantmakethisup
When it's your second day on the project and you already get screamed at for trying to be helpful
That awkward moment when your client whips out an electronic cigarette and starts puffing away mid presentation.
Choosing to be homeless for the next 3 months. Pad rented out to airbnber. Hopefully my project will keep me on for that time. I’m single, no kids and homeless. And loving it. #homelessconsultant
My team of 10 is located in 2 countries and 5 cities. Oh and we never physically meet the client either they are in the 6th city. So much For being a collocated agile team. Sigh! #hownottodoagile
I'm starting to hate the word "client." It's starting to sound weird to me now. You know, like when you say a word multiple times. Client. Client. Client. Get it? This job is making me insane.
When the only flight to your new project on the airline your loyal to is in the afternoon on Mondays... 😡
When you're hungover AF on Thursday at work because you went out too hard with your project team on Wednesday night... Thank god I fly out today and leave at 3pm 🙌🏻
Just "wolf whistled" instead of saying my name on a client call. My young female client took it as a compliment.
What's the best way to network with managers to get staffed on a project when rolling off an old one?
Client said, "...and Mike come on top of me on this" on a call. I think he meant "build on what I'm saying". Not quite the same. Pretty hard not to laugh when other clients snort and look at me.
One of my client's surname is Wood. She said "Good Morning" as soon as I entered office today. I replied "Good Morning Wood !!" 🙃😶😑😐
"What do you call an iphone that isn't kidding around? Dead Siri-ous!" --> Overheard at midwest client site #shootme #clienthumor

My manager sold me as a SME on a digital topic and hyped my years of experience in the field. Reality is I had never heard of the technology and had 0 years of experience. This is consulting folks.
First class upgrade... Bottoms up
Watching #yearinspace on PBS. Amazing!
🤔 not sure if my pants are looser since this morning because I lost weight or because I stretched them out sitting for almost 13 hours straight...
Had someone ask me to find them fucked up subreddits for some reason.. Stumbled on a few I regret going "I wonder what that on is." I think that's enough internet for today.
There are some people who have charm, and some people who don't. Guess which one I am. Charm-type.
Working like crazy and delaying lunch till 4-5ish or totally skipping it. Does this job really worth the $$ it's been rewarding me? #compstatementreleaseperiod#🤔
Brexit, Cubs, and Trump. Cue the fourth horseman.
