Kpmg1, what are you talking about? Senior leadership directly reading how you actually feel - pretty valuable platform. @op - I'm just another grunt, don't worry. My point was more that you ought to use the mechanisms available to ask questions and not bitch about the moderators who did a good job in my opinion - asking some questions that get to what staff talk about and asking some follow ups too.

No she didn't. She said the firm can't publish.

@OP - did you ask questions via the webcast interface?

😇

P4 , if mgt was so great then we didn't need fishbowls. Usually there opaque opportunist process and policies have led many people complain over and over. This is the place we get get many good point of views and ways to navigate through the world of consulting . Don't believe? Try taking initiative of creating internal people to post messages. Now more I think I feel you are like a naive little fish swimming in the glory bubble that you created to torment other people.
