Meet with a 23 year old son of a client to open an account. Told him to send me his etrade statement so we can roll over his existing account. He tells me he doesn't know what a statement is.😂

So I joined a project where there was another BW and I was super excited. She was very friendly and helpful at first, then she turned on me and is now very passive-aggressive and tries to embarrass me in front of the team. I took that as a signal to put some space between us. This was working at first, but now she’s told our manager that I’m not being a team player. Luckily, my work speaks for itself and I have good relationships with others. How would you deal with this?

At Big4: How do some partners sell projects and survive when it's a disaster working with them? Constantly flip flopping on decisions in deliverables, aggressively forcing their incorrect views and rejecting ideas from the project team - which eventually, the client comes to the same idea after workshops. All the partner can do is BS really eloquently when called out by the client. Don't you have to showcase your deep expertise to sell a project??

What was your "I know I'm done moment" that made you decide you were ready to leave consulting? I am at my second firm with a much better WLB but starting to question whether I need to just exit altogether. I also hear about many ex-consultants being "bored" in industry jobs so want to make sure I am really thoughtful about what it is I am looking for outside of a consulting role. I am over the hierarchy and politics in consulting but not sure it that much better in industry.

Looking for advice on how to career pivot. My husband is a general manager for a company that has HQ in a different state so growth opps are limited unless we move. How do I help him pivot into a more corporate job somewhere before it’s too late and he’s pegged as a boots on the ground GM? He has so much potential but I feel like all people see on his resume is that he’s a GM of a location as opposed to an operations leader especially when applying to jobs on LinkedIn.
