Got off a call with a client who's rude almost to the point of being demeaning. Any suggestions on how to get off the client?
For some reason, I never have issues with clients or the work at hand, but it's always internal people that give me the most grief. Everything can be going great with the client and project, and then an M just comes in to rain on the parade. How are these people building "eminence." Who wants to work with people that are always pessimistic and irritated.
SaaS contract playbooks: Anyone willing to link to good resources or have some tips/best practices (or links) to drafting & negotiating SaaS contracts? I have westlaw, just wanting to read more anecdotal/personal experience type content you’d get from a mentor. Pref for healthcare tech or subscription based resources but any SaaS would be helpful!
Making 90K in Texas, it’s my first job out of college so I’m not sure of best retirement plan: should I max Roth 401k or Traditional 401K?
Answered a client email at 5am today even though I rolled off yesterday. You won't last in consulting unless you find satisfaction in helping truly deserving clients. #dedication
My husband and I are trying to have a second child and have been trying for over a year. I recently was referred to a fertility doctor and after many tests found out I don’t have much time (I’m 36). The doctors say all I can really do is live a healthy lifestyle (which I do anyways). Any tips or advice from moms that battled infertility? I’m trying to stay positive but it can be so hard sometimes.
My client had to stay on site until 5:30p yday and complained about having to stay late. I proceeded to laugh and cry at the same time
Married People/Life Partners - what conversations did you have with your spouses before deciding to become pregnant? No offense, but this question is for people that have actually planned and have leveraged 21st century contraception to do so along with strategic financial planning. I’d really like to understand the steps you and your spouses took before deciding to have a baby.
I’m looking at an opportunity at Crowe. What is the environment, culture, people and work life balance like at Crowe in Bay Area location? How is the firm Perk and Benefits?
Shoe recommendations for work when pregnant?
Couple financial questions: 1) what do you do with your 401k when you quit? 2) if you go to grad school and come back above the income limit for Roth IRA, do you leave it where it is to grow?
While everyone’s situation is unique, it appears to me that there is a general (and substantive) difference between the mindset of senior execs/partners (Gen Xers) and the Gen Z/Millennial troops as to the need to head back to the office. There is a world of difference between “the office” as code for “client lunches, rounds of golf” vs “needless commuting time that will eat into a working day that is already unsustainable”. Do you feel your organization is in touch with where you are?
Anyone else feel like a 100k salary is nothing. Between 17% to 401k, and 87,000 in student loan debt anyone. I don’t actually have much money left post paying down rent and normal bills
Pro se plaintiff, an attorney, filed a complaint alleging mold defects after closing on a property. Client, layperson, may have agreed orally to a settlement amount without proof of damages prior to filing appearance and obtaining an attorney. Client filed appearance pro se, then plaintiff sent over a draft settlement agreement few weeks later which client didn’t sign. Client then got an attorney, filed answer, etc. Can this oral agreement be voided for coercion, indefinite mat’l term, etc?
My intern was assigned the role of “strategist” on an intern-project and they asked me “Wait, so I just have think about stuff, I don’t actually have to DO anything??”
Just got staffed on a project in Seattle - thoughts, insight? Things to do, places to see and eat?
Best consulting firms in Houston for Healthcare?
Well the good news is that my manager said it would be done by Monday morning to the client. The bad news is that he sent that email to the client at 7pm Friday and never texted me. Wait both are bad.
How do you all handle tantrums from your toddler during dinner? We finally made it out to have a socially distanced dinner with a female friend of my husband. My toddler started getting really fussy during dinner and my spouse continued his conversation -not wanting to leave. I took the baby on a brief walk but that wasn’t really helping. Spouse still did not want to cut dinner short (we were already on dessert) and he kept his conversation going. I sat down and baby is grabbing plates (cont)

Graduated in May. Starting this Monday with Deloitte. Positions requires weekly travel to NYC from DC. Told to only use green corp card for lodging and flights. Suggestions on how to maximize points?
Not sure how consulting firms expect to retain talent out of undergrad if they barely raise pay. Left consulting after 1 year, end of 2nd year and I’m at 180k comp now with friends at D and PWC barely hitting 85. I know seniors at D not even making 100k
Traditional 401k or Roth 401k? Which one do you guys recommend and what % should be contributed for either? Deloitte
Sudden call for case int - can't push. 1 week left. What do you focus on? Listen to LOMS frequently. Familiar with frameworks. Did prep lounge last year, but didn't interview. Out of active practice.
Ill say it again, we should start considerin splitting the Union. There is a minority of the US who wants a mad man in charge. There is very little reason for the majority to abide by this.
Help! My husband and have a blended family and different views on CVD. I am vaccinated and my son tested positive a few days ago and has been sick. He's currently quarantined however my husbands HS son has been sick for 2 weeks and have completely disregarded all CDC protocol or school guidelines. I'm surprised his school has not sent him home. They work, play, anything they want. I am so angry and upset I am not sure what to do. I teach in another district but feel like I need to do something.

KPMG Strategy Manager pay Negotiating the contract. Not sure how much I can ask? 150k? Does KPMG pay as high as Deloitte and Strategy& for the same role? Not an MBA. Thank you!
Say that you live in country A. You apply to a job in company X in country B (connecting with a director through LinkedIn). 4/5 days after a recruiter talks to you for a position in company X but in country A. You strongly prefer country B over A, so you state clearly to HR that you're willing to be part of the process only if you can also interview in B. You do not bring this up again and are in last round for X in country A. You have not heard back yet from B but prefer it. WWYD?
I’m a newb at investing but let’s say I truly believed back after the first dip and slight recovery in Feb that this coronovirus thing would be bad, should I have moved my 401k to less risky? (Cont)
