Let’s say you sell a 3yr long project in September. Do you put the 3yr project in the CRM or break it down? Breaking down is complicated, but full deal close ruins reporting. Firm can’t decide.
Got 2 offers,1st from British American Tobacco- Planning Expert 10% pay rise and 2nd from small company(focus on data science) 50% pay rise, Data Science Project Goal: to break into MBB or FAANG
Any news about H1B extensions? Been hearing some rejections for consulting employees like us due to client sow end dates. Is it true?
My project is gonna miss it’s deadline cause the CD that needs to review it is non responsive to emails, declines my meeting invites or says they’ll “get to it when I can”. Starting to freak out since
How many people are suddenly managing an intern they didn’t ask for because project leadership requested one without any idea or scope of what they’d actually do? 🙋🏼♀️
Let’s make a Creative Complaints bowl. A bowl dedicated to venting about what the client/account/pm did today to piss us off.
I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.
Can you expense mileage when you take public transportation (costs the same as commuting to office) to client’s site?
Plaintiff’s counsel wants to include the following language (expressed for purposes of this post in CAPS) in my client’s standard release, but I can’t tell if I should take an issue with it - thoughts? “The amount of this settlement and terms of this settlement are confidential and may only be disclosed to Plaintiff’s attorneys, government agencies, or as otherwise required IN THE ORDINARY COURSE OF BUSINESS OR by law or court order.”
Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
Do yall keep the timer running when on standby? (I.e. not exactly drafting but waiting for emails or dig pages to come in on closing day)
It’s well known that the difference in work culture in Europe vs US is quite different. Can you comment on some of the differences when it comes to work/life balance, competitiveness, client dynamics
Starting a local project for the first time. Any tips? Most of my team travels onsite M-Th
My memory is terrible lately. Boss and client noticed during a work dinner, asked how I keep up with my job. I felt very scolded...
What can you actually do to salvage a project going down in flames? I’m a new manager, completely do not have the support I need, and it seems as though every single team/person our team relies on to get things done on time has dropped the ball. All the issues are now coming to us. I don’t have the experience to navigate this all alone, and I am not getting the necessary support as all of my managers are swamped with other (to them, more important) issues at the same client.
Let’s name cities that if you told a consultant you were going to they could probably guess the client. I’ll go first: Kohler, WI
If anyone can review my resume and provide some tips that will be truly great. Currently applying for financial analyst job, but no luck so far.
Guys - I just made it past ORD Terminal 1 security in 8 minutes, getting out of the uber to beyond-security area, without TSA Precheck or any status. I'm off to buy a lottery ticket. Good luck!

Anyone work at CFPB Enforcement? Any insight into work life balance, culture, supervisors etc? Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
Need advice. Currently at a top boutique. Fun firm, weak pipeline and 12 - 18 months from promotion. Received offer at a smaller firm focused on interim management for hospitals for 33% more TC. Less brand name, would get more experience managing people at a hospital. Do I jump?
Have pretty great dental insurance, covers orthodontics so got Invisalign. Dentist office submitted ~$6k bill, insurance says there is a negotiated ~$4k rate. Insurance pays X and I pay the balance on the negotiated rate. Dentist’s office then tells me I’m responsible for the remaining $2K. This is illegal, right?
Anyone hear of Marakon, had a recruiter reach out but know nothing about the firm. Any first hand insight around the culture and type of work / clients are welcomed
I’m in NJ. Most states, NJ included have passed laws forbidding a landlord from evicting tenants during this corona virus pandemic. If I don’t pay my rent can I still be charged late fees?
So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?
