Just got staffed on an exciting project and partner told me I would get a quant heavy role (as it's my development objective), principal now told me he prefers me to do PMO. What to do?

Do the PMO, ask to take on quant on the side and try to increase quant part gradually

“prefer” implies that it’s negotiable, in my mind - keep pushing

As for a catch up with the principal to discuss this. Calmly explain that you had come onto the project to address a key DO and that you would appreciate having the opportunity to do that. Describe what partner told you. Suggest solution e.g. perhaps there is a way you could do pmo and then quant by dividing your role into two phases?

Have the conversation with your Principal. Top of mind for them is positioning people on the team for how best to get the project done, and they're not always aware of your motives (or what a partner/staffing sold you on) when you joined the case. I've never seen a situation where we can't carve out something to help you address an AFD.

Dont effing settle for PMO. Ask for the quant role and say you'll spend 20% of additional time on PMO-ing specific pieces (hopefully around yoir quant role).

Speak with your TM and CA. It may not be something that can be changed immediately, but they should be able to facilitate something.

Ask why your partner wants you to do a pmo role

Thanks FB much appreciate the help. I mentioned to the principal there may have been some miscommunication regarding the role as the partner (who is also my career advisor) asked me to join the project for exactly the quant aspect. Principal said he was aware, and that was the end of the conversation. Pretty frustrated as I'm far ahead of progress on all other metrics besides quant because I never got exposure which just sucks. Have asked for a quant project for 6 months now

Just curious....but are in the finance section..what exactly is a quant heavy role?

Is it possible this could lead to a recommendation or some help getting hired or is it impossible to break into even regional big law?

Hey,
So I had applied for a post on Infosys,
The last update i got was a mail saying that "Thankyou for confirming your availablity, and we will share you the time of the interview and link to join the meeting shortly".
And i havent received any update after. The interview was supposed to happen on yesterday.
I believe it was rescheduled as i can see my application is still in 'Attend Interview' status. But I didnt receive any email saying the same.
Any thoughts on this?
