I’m currently working as a in house Salesforce Marketing Cloud Admin for a local organization and interviewing at Slalom Consulting.

Over a month on the bench and all of my leads have fell through. I'm a campus hire (started last fall) but still worried about my utilization. Any tips on how to expand my internal network even more?
Is utilization less important if the firm simply cannot sell enough projects to staff people on?
If you exceed your billable hours Monday through Thursday and don’t have much work to do on Friday, is it okay to leave early?
I’d be curious to hear about people’s chargeable/billable hours. What are your goals vs actual, best/worst years, etc. I’ve only ever worked at one regional firm so my knowledge is fairly narrow.
Deloitte 🐠: Can people who got 1 or 2 ratings before share your metrics, i.e client/adj utilization, PRD hours, applaud awards, anything else...Thanks!
So got client dilema: Did business case last year. Erased data. Now clients wants to pursue. New business case I rebuilt doesnt match at all. Current upside is 25% of prior year. I am pretty sure I made a mistake last year Do I present the new case, do I play crazy? Do I quit the firm in shame and move to south america? What would you do?
I’m on an engagement with another associate. I’m fully booked (upwards of 60 hours a week every week of July), while the other associate hasn’t had billable hours for the last 3 months... engagement team has some changes they need to get pushed through to the wps, and I’m the better choice to push those updates (have more experience in wps and just better in general). But the other associate has availability and just gets paid to do nothing. Should I bring that up to someone? How and to whom?
[1/2] Hi all, I apologize because I know there have been posts on this bowl with similar subject matter recently, but I really need advice. I am at a risk of losing my job at the end of this month if I don’t make some changes to my work performance, specifically meeting my monthly billable hour requirement. My work and my work product is not an issue - my partner has repeatedly commended me on everything I produce, but my billable hours are seriously lacking.
Hey all, I had a web application running on Google App Engine (from 2011). Didn’t need much caretaking and at some point appengine got an overhaul and now I can’t figure out how to navigate the setup. I’m told the project needs an organization but I can’t figure out how to connect the ancient project with my org. Any googlear out there with some insight?
What's everyone hoping to get for Christmas? I got my present early: five months of billable work to start off 2016.
Question: I am in California and we use Google calendar and my client, based in Phoenix, uses Microsoft Teams. All their recurring meetings (initiated by them) are still showing on my calendar at the same time instead of moving it forward by an hour. Did anyone has this problem?
Ah! If the clients ever realize the number of billable hours wasted on making slides just ‘look’ pretty!!!!
Have $300 to spend from my firm on home office accessories! Honestly at a loss to figure out what to get... Already have great chair/standing desk, keyboard, mouse, headphones, monitor. What can you all not work without?
Any mid-level copywriters looking for work? We had another writer leave and are looking to fill the position. It's a small shop with incredible creative leadership and fun food accounts. Trust me, you’ll get a lot of opportunities and have a blast. PM a link to your book and I'll tell you more.
Just interviewed with Google for an analyst role and the questions were pretty freaking tough.... Not feeling great. Any advice?
Share your best (worst) “I didn’t know I was on camera” or “I didn’t know I was unmuted” stories here. I’ll go first: started at a new client, and joined their first daily standup Zoom call. Was just getting out of shower and running 2 mins late, so joined from my phone as I was getting dressed. Apparently the Zoom app on iOS (at least on my phone) defaults to camera ON. 13 people on the call. That sucked.

How do I ask for a salary increase when I’ve worked for less than a year? New incoming analysts are getting paid about 10k more than my current comp. My mentor who’s a senior manager even knows that my cohort is being underpaid....

So I just finished an interview round for a startup, and despite my better judgement, I built a model for measuring success of a marketing campaign - part of their ‘case exercise’ to be completed at home. They just let me know that they’re going with ‘other candidates’ and I realized I built them a reusable framework for free. 🤡
