Joined FAANG from consulting few months back, now I am really starting to feel the pressure, after I am handed a really critical project. 7am morning calls, escalation emails, boss calling you to give directions. Is this the new norm for Tech?
A client I’m on is dragging and I have another busy season I’m starting for a client that’s also filing next week.p. So I have two filings the same week as a senior, and the team on the first has completely rolled off. The client just provided new and final FS on Friday afternoon. What should I do? I’ve never had this happen before, and to make things worse Im barely recovering from health issues. Seriously want to quit rn.
Should I join Infosys as a fresher with 6lpa even though I have 1.5 yrs experience in Accenture at 4.5lpa.
Package aside, I am in a support project based on ETL tools working 12hrs daily with a bad management and not much learning. They're not hiring any senior and have kept all dependency on me. I get panic attacks n many health issues bt some say infy has worse work culture n there's no guarantee tht I'll be in a better condition at infy. Please suggest what to do.
I’m interviewing at an agency and I love two of the client teams I have meet with so far. Is it possible to ask to be put on both team if both accounts offer me the role ( it’s the same role )?

Question for younger consultants with a dog. I’m a recent grad and have been debating getting a dog for some time now. I have researched costs so I’m well aware of the financial responsibility. I’m more so concerned with the things that people tend to overlook. My project work has me around 50-55hrs a week. I maintain a good wlb I cook, workout, meet friends, go out to town. What are some things that turned out to be a pain in the ass when getting a new dog/puppy that you didn’t foresee?

What's the etiquette on accepting vouchers for voluntary bumps? Have any of you ever done it on the way to a client site?
Not sure if I’m having an existential crisis or if I just don’t like my project/team. Probably both. I just don’t think I can handle doing this everyday. How long to stay at a firm before leaving/making yourself look bad? I dunno how much more of this I can do
On a project where my strategic thinking and “getting things done” attribute is appreciated by managing director; but my direct reporting manager would expect me to know functional stuff without (con)

How to deal with a Manager who only looks for opportunities to pull you down in front of the team and client and takes up credit for everything?
Pants ripped at client site so I asked my manager if I could go out to buy pants. Her response: "hahahaha can you fix the slide first".
I am new to consulting. Is it a mistake to talk to the client without copying my managers? I did the mistake of talking to the client directly and my manager hates me now. 😞

I’m going nomad for 18 months starting in Sep and would enjoy your recommendations on great places AND the best month to be there.
Like many, I work 60+ hrs a week, so this is about a better VRBO window to look out of and cool things to see/do/eat/drink on the weekends. I’ll be solo for some of the months, and with friends during others.
My manager speaks a million miles an hour and uses some next level bs consulting lingo. He gets huffy when people ask him to slow down or use Layman's terms. Thinking about recording our calls CONTD
