This one is going to make some of y’all mad, but it’s so annoyingly unnecessary. The most irritating part is “is it a shirt day or a skirt day”…. Like women don’t wear shirts with skirts and men don’t wear shirts with pants. Shirts and skirts are not mutually exclusive. I’ll just leave this here.
I just got asked by a client to start working on PST hours because we don’t have enough time to sync….it’s their calendar that is booked up during the day, not mine. How can I go about pushing back and avoiding working until 8pm every day? I asked about this possibility specifically when I joined this engagement and manager told me I would work EST hours.
Bain is hosting holiday party at Joy District Club in Chicago… KPMG needs to step it up…

Let's take a poll: Do you want things to return to normal- as in, exactly how schools were before this pandemic? (considering no more threats from the virus)
Can anyone please refer me in Accenture UK? TIA.
What is with all these title bumps lately? A lot of people in creative roles who only have about 1.5-2 years are suddenly being moved up to a Senior Creative role. Most of their books are still filled with spec works that they did back in Ad School. Is the industry really that desperate and can't find any workers that they'll just give a title bump?
Anyone at Twilio Inc. know how an L4 there compares to other tech companies? Aka is it the same as an L4 at Google / Facebook? Higher or lower?
How do you guys schedule your hours?
Say I need to hit 200 hours per month. Currently I take the amount of working days in a month (M-F) and divide it by 200 to get how many hours I need to bill per day. For example, May has 20 working days, so I need to bill 10hrs./day M-F.
I’ve done exactly that thus far and have been able to stick to a pretty consistent schedule. But I know a lot work on weekends. For instance, if I worked Saturdays too there are 25 billable days which means 8hrs/day.
Are there people here who are in say big 4, don't see themselves there in the long term and want to give a shot at MBB or other reputed strat firms but somehow that doesn't work out? What is the possible solution? Is moving to industry the only option?
Hi all, will people who have joined CBS in January as manager be eligible for pay increase and bonus this year? Does anyone know the expected pay rise and bonus range? Thanks

Curious how other nannies are, but my full time nanny at home takes a couple naps each day. She feeds the baby well and helps with other house chores like cleaning, but from my POV she does not play with the baby enough, usually lets her read books or play music and then sits by. Then she would doze off for 15+ min at a time. My husband and i both have seen this. Is this normal?

I am a Consultant and on track to promotion to Sr. Consultant later this year. I saw and applied for an internal role of Solutions Architect (SA) almost on a whim to test my chances. lol
Now, that I was invited for an interview, I am trying to understand whether SA would be a solid & logical next step. Would anyone of you share your thoughts and how you see SA fitting into the overall consulting hierarchy?
Why does everyone hate staff augmentation? I really miss it 9-5 with an hour lunch and I’m billable for years at a time. I rolled off for a challenge and just want the simple life back.
