How many years should you stay at a consulting company before jumping ship so it doesn’t look like your a hopper or flight risk or have negative perception?
I’m sore. BF and I WFH all last week and let’s just say coffee breaks got on the wild side. Let’s see what this week holds..
Anyone just getting tired of their partner on a whole new level with WFH? I feel like we are getting into spats more, I'm getting more resentful of the lack of even workloads/effort, and to top it all off these tensions are literally invading my personal space! Not looking for advice really. Just wondering if anyone else is feeling partner fatigue more now than the Before Times.
In need of some guidance re: a potential promotion. A senior writer on my team is leaving and I’m hoping to transition into that role (I’m mid level). Last week I talked to my GCD/manager about the writer leaving. We mostly only talked about passing along recos to get a referral bonus. Then it hit me hours later: I’m the one for the job. I set up time to talk to said manager. I have my reasons all set and ready but I’m worried they’ll say no on the spot. How can I best prepare?
Got an offer from Guidehouse as a senior consultant in HIA back in January. The recruiter is MIA and not coming up with joining date and giving reasons like other PRoject team was put on bench and they will be allocated first before giving joining dates to the new hires. What should I do...if the recruiter comes back with the joining date. Should I join? What is the business situation at Guidehouse right now?
WFH fish, how do you consume information during the day. I relied on info from my network in-person but now that I’m at home, I’ve found it hard to keep up with the what’s going on. Any advice?
This “always on” slack/teams culture needs to end. Timestamped emails after and before work hours should be penalised as signs of poor time management skills and project management efficiencies. I hope we do like germans and labor laws are made for after work hour messaging.

For people here making less than 100K who max out their 401K / HSA, can I have a conversation with you about your taxes paid ? Is it significantly less or is your take home significantly less ? Trying to assess the financial impact to my take home if I max out my 401K. Ty!
What do you do with male consultants continuously trying to claim your space on your project? I feel just because I’m a young female manager that by definition I get less appreciated!
My boss loves to have every warm body possible in pitch meetings, even people who aren’t working on it. He will slack you out of the blue and expect you to drop everything to just sit there and make the team look “impressive.” Why are people like this? Don’t clients see right through it? Is it actually impressive to have 10+ people in the room if only half of them participate? 😑 it’s such a waste of everyone’s time.
I’m looking into exiting consulting and moving into product management. Picked up a few books to read. Would a PM certification provide a lot of value? Any other tips are appreciated! Thank you.
If I bring in/make an introduction to a client for the firm, will that expedite my career growth/comp as a senior? At a big 4, seeing if it’s worth my time.
I recently joined Deloitte (experienced hire with 4 yoe from ACN), I’m staffed on a project for the partner that recruited me. The partner told me to record every call (internal and external) and when I asked if just needed notes she said she wants a recording of every one....is this normal Deloitte behaviour?
What do parents do if their child is choiced and don't want their child to go to school? Will they lose choice? We haven't heard what's going on in this part.
