My senior manager told me that I work for him and I have to do whatever he says, I told him "no, I do not work for you and I work for Deloitte, and I am willing to collaborate with you to do what I can to make the project most successful". He told me that I am going to have severe consequences for what I said.
Any idea fishes on what's the last client round in EY Parthenon for Deals Strategy - is it a experience discussion/fitment or a proper technical round.

Getting real disillusioned with agency life, and seriously considering making the jump client side about 5 years earlier than I planned to. Is there such a thing as making the move too early?
Let’s say you work on a project with someone from another practice and really connected with the person - how should that person approach you in case he/she wants to switch to your team?
Consulting firms what are your messaging on travel moving forward? Especially interested in strategy plans moving forward…curious what firms are planning/expecting? I haven’t traveled much in the last couple years but used to be on site every week with tech implementations. Our messaging at Accenture is “whatever the client wants” - curious what others are expecting?
#honestyhour I have not had sex since I started this insane project a month ago and I legit want to die
🤖 Where is TCS HR ?
I observed No involvement of HR in screening call & scheduling technical interview
Is it common with TCS process ?
#1 Got 1st call from project manager (instead of hr) and he is interested to know compensation part.
#2 Got 2nd call for technical interview without scheduling interview.
I was uncomfortable as in 1st call to discuss compensation with project manager ( no authentication, is he really manager).
On the spot technical interview 😁

40 years in Big 4 - worked for 5 of the old Big 8 in three different parts of the country. Glad to answer any questions. Fire away.
We are casting hands. Client asked for a “color ambiguous” talent. Yep. This exact term.
When working on site for a client, what’s the typical time you and your team leave? I know it can vary depending on the circumstances, but just on an average day. IMO it should be shortly after..cont
What's the biggest exaggeration/lie on your CV? Mine is that I led projects even though I was the second-highest ranking person on the ground at the client.
Fish on H1B who are traveling for client work again recently, how is requesting LCA going for you? Hopefully it’s not taking too long
Client: sounds like there's a lot of sirens where you are. Do you need to jump off? Me: No, it's just snowing in Dallas.
What personal laptop/tablet should I get? Weight and size are important, will only likely use for word processing, streaming movies and simple photo editing. Already carry client and firm laptop.
Can anyone help me to understand one thing here from EPAM Systems. In JD they have mentioned about requirement fir to “Basin Team”. What is this Basin Team like ? Is it a project name “Basin” or tool name ?

Of all your engagements ,what is the company with the worst culture that you've witnessed?
Put a book together for an MD I don't usually work with and got in trouble by my manager because I didn't ask her first... I should start asking her when I can use the bathroom and blow my nose.
This client won't approve the last 2 deliverables I need to roll off because they don't want me to leave! Ugh!
Just got hit on by a random female I've never seen at the client site (I'm a male). Unfortunately have a gf so didn't pursue, but found it really attractive that she was hitting on me. Idk but y'all,
Gift ideas for gf’s 35th?

Shower at Boston Logan? I’m doing a red 👁 next week on Delta & heading straight to the client.
Delta lounge, don’t think so. Other lounges? Other ideas? Excluding bird bath in the men’s room!
Anyone been successful in negotiating later start date? My offer wants me to start in Nov but I lose bonus if I leave my company before Jan. Their signing bonus is not enough to cover my loss.
Inside sources told me that there will be a huge global crisis (worse than 2008) somewhere in 2019-2021 and I’m not panicking too much because I have no savings/mortgage anyways.
For those who have families without health issues, take a moment to be grateful for that. Appreciate it. You can lose that sense of security in a moment.
Have a million Marriott points and wanted to do a 5 week trip in Asia - what’s my best way to cash in my points? I was thinking of doing the travel packages but not sure if there’s a better option
New to consulting. Seems like all firms churn out thought leadership, have branded institutes, publications, etc. What do you think distinguishes your firm in this area, if anything?
If I’m running late to a call, because of another call or meeting running long, is it better to listen silently until I’m needed or announce “sorry I just joined” while someone is talking.
I feel like a fraud at work but for some reason everyone thinks I’m a rising star. I think it’s because people find me personable but I got a skip promotion to manager this year and it feels wrong.
