Donald Trump is the literal representation of a clueless consultant trying to BS his way through client presentation for which he knows nothing about.
Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)
The list of companies includes a former employer (that was terrible in every way), a former client (that was also terrible), and some big names in the healthcare/pharma and tech industries. I’m going to guess that, like the former employer and former client of mine (which both had atrocious cultures and didn’t care about their people), if a company is refusing to hire people from a state because the state is requiring pay transparency, they probably have a terrible culture, too.

Is there a time when people generally “start” work remotely? Back when I was a summer before the pandemic, I commonly saw people go in between 9-10 am but I didn’t know what the norm is now that we are remote. I see emails at 8 am and I’m not sure if I’m expected to respond then or not. Also if you are on a deal where some of the members are in NY and you’re in the Midwest, are you expected to go by their times and be on when they are on?
