Is there an issue if I’m a close friend to one of the associates on the engagement team? Should this friendship be under the table because other associates might perceive favoritism even there’s none?

Yeah, I’d keep it quiet .


It’s not great, but I see it as more of an issue when one person is a manager. However, if you have actual management/performance pull on the team you should reconsider whether being a close friend with one of the associates is actually a good idea.


Everyone on my engagement team ended up being close friends after a few months. I don’t think it’s an issue. Dating might be a problem...


I do performance review for the team with manager’s inputs...Sigh.


Friends for benefit?

Hello everyone! I need some advice on outside sales. I work for a telecom company and have been a low performer recently. I enjoy sales and working with customers but had a negative experience with a customer where I was called multiple racial slurs and threatened after knocking his door. And another where The cops were called on me. Since then I’ve had a mental block when door knocking and if there is anything suspicious I won’t knock at all. I’m about to lose my job. Please help.

Am I particularly uptight, or is writing meant to be done alone, without a partner talking to you? With past partners, we chat through script notes and then I go off to execute. Current partner likes to sit and chat as I write. To me, writing is crafting a conversation. So I can’t talk to you and simultaneously talk to this audience. Of course I can just say “I’m gonna go write.” But since we’re both CD level, I’m like…is this his first rodeo? Maybe other writers are different though.


You know what it is.

How to deal with being rejected from a consulting job you want?

We've all been there (not just me I hope). It's so frustrating when the consulting one is a tough hill to climb. Has joining a smaller management consulting firm ever worked out for anyone?

I also sent my references. I don’t know when I can expect an reply. Recruiters from that company aren’t really organised
