I was talking to a first year at a different consulting firm who mentioned that even as a first year, he gets plenty of project staffing options. Is this the norm? I got pigeonholed early
My PM skipped out two days this week with the client-side group at "an offsite meeting". Tons of meetings had to be shuffled. I found out they went to a spa.
Just "wolf whistled" instead of saying my name on a client call. My young female client took it as a compliment.
Starting a new project in Nashville... recommendations on relatively quick dinner in the downtown area?
