Ever left a dumpster fire in your wake on your way out at a client? How'd you handle it?
Anyone feel super awkward around their team when they’re trying to develop you? My manager and leadership keep telling me that they see me owning the workstream I’m on soon and that I’ll be managing the project in the future and that I have big things ahead for me at the firm. The problem is that I’m job searching now and haven’t told any of them and it’ll be super awkward when I leave.
What approach do you prefer to take when a client thinks the billable hours on an invoice are too high, but you think they are reasonable based on the work performed/deliverables?
Has anyone had an initial Zoom screen with McK recruiter? If so is it just a casual motivational conversation, or anything peculiar one should look out for? Thanks!
How much work is a manager supposed to do if they’re allocated 50% on the project? I feel like I’m doing their job and mine.
One hellish project wrapped up yesterday, on my way to a Caribbean beach vacation 🎈🎉🍷💃🏻✈️
How do you guys deal with flaky team members? It sounds like this person may be genuinely struggling with personal stuff but client work is piling up and becoming an issue. The team is swamped already so it feels like we are carrying dead weight at this point
My manager is really ticking me off. He stopped caring so I have to pick up his slack. I get why he is so tired but there's work to do.. how can I protect my hide without throwing him under the bus?
One thing I truly will never understand is how Zoom became so successful despite the strength of so many other meeting platforms.
Anyone at slack willing to refer?

Im in strategy at Accenture. Is there any chance they'll let me get staffed on a non-strategy project?
Skype issues anybody?
My project manager doesn't even let me get lunch... meetings are scheduled over lunch until way passed cafeteria is closed. Is this normal? My first project...
When you accidentally turn on your Skype video while shirtless during a team meeting and it takes you a minute to realize it....🙄😖
Does anyone here take a 'lazy day'? Where people think you are just working at another location but you are at home with Skype on pretending to be busy?
Anyone in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) space? I am AEM architect and looking for change. Open for referral, if your team/company is hiring for AEM architect/Lead? Thanks
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
Applied for an SM position at pwc and interviewers mentioned that it is for an SM position as well. But the offer came out as M. Recruiter said it is just a title and doesn’t have any implications but more I look, it does look like an downgrade. Is this common? I am currently an SM and it is in tech consulting area.

If I apply to a position on StaffIt, does the person who posted it get an automated notification? Or does it have to flow through my Resource Manager?
What is the KPMG pension plan? How does it work for managers and above ? Left the firm a few months ago, and got something in the mail but have no clue about the benefit
What are some small firms with entrepreneurial gusto giving MBB legit competition? And I don’t mean old school traditional shops charging $1,300 per hour per resource.
1) was last year the most competitive mba app year on record? 2) will this year be tougher/easier?
My utilization is 90% but all of my clients are small jobs. Does that look worse than someone who works on the larger, higher revenue generating jobs with all else equal (utilization/performance)?
Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about. That said, the comp is on the lower end of what I was hoping for (slightly lower than what I’m making now, including equity) and there’s a very good chance I’m getting promoted to manager next month at my current firm. No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...

Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?
How many people are waiting for bonuses before leaving their current firms? I’m at PwC and our bonus will be given on 10/1. I’m pretty sure my entire team between director and senior plan to start interviewing after 9/15 or 10/15. Are there any other firms who have yet to pay out bonuses yet? Wondering how hard it will be to find something in a couple of months.
Working as Consultant at Cognizant Business Consulting now, I am being offered a role of Senior Business Analyst as a contractor for 1yr, initially for 6 months in Deloitte IN. I am a bit skeptical with this Contractor thing. Can someone guide me please? They say I don't have prior Big 4 consulting experience and hence this role.
As an interventionist, I work with many grade levels and students. Looking for the best way to document data and information along with how to share the information with classroom teachers & parents.
