PMP certification: Is there a way around the 35 hours of training/education required to apply for the certificate? I have plenty PMP experience and have study materials from someone who took the boot camp so I don’t need or want to sit through a week long course.

No, multiple online courses you can do over two weekends for relatively cheap


Any courses you recommend?

Feels like a racket the PMP thing


Jose Philips on udemy is great

Joseph Phillips on udemy /O'Reilly has better content in my opinion but you can also explore the one on LinkedIn learning, I believe that is shorter in length but somehow covers required pdu.

Changed my company but it didn't update!

Life is interesting. Had a messed up childhood, <2.0 GPA in high school, dropped out of community college, finagled my way into IT consulting starting at $50k, worked up to $120k, completed my bachelors online last year, just started a Sr. Cons in Strategy role for $160k.


How to compensate for long term unemployment? After getting let go from McK earlier this year, I've been unemployed for close to 6 months and explaining it to prospective employers is awkward and uncomfortable. Any advice on how to navigate this?


Most embarrassing WFH moment?


Has “being patient” with your career ever helped? Keep getting told this by senior leadership but I’m unclear about whether it’s actually good advice or just bs they’re telling me because they don’t want to help me advance in my career.


Is 27 too old for senior consultant? I look around and most are manager by 28. This is a serious post. I’m happy with the promotion but looking around seems like most are younger.


Pwc fishes, care to comment?

Isn't it hypocritical that there's so much talk of social justice and equity this year, but when it comes to the covid vaccines, we jump straight to the front of the line compared to other countries. 🙄


What time do you expect your staff to be in the office in the morning? These 2 keep coming in 910 and 930 when we agreed on 9 (which is generous).


Not sure how consulting firms expect to retain talent out of undergrad if they barely raise pay. Left consulting after 1 year, end of 2nd year and I’m at 180k comp now with friends at D and PWC barely hitting 85. I know seniors at D not even making 100k


I am a little disappointed. I had a surgery yesterday. Today, my boss calls me and she doesn’t even ask about my well being or how the surgery went. It was all about work......


Best WiFi name ideas anyone? Setting up for the new house


Who else actually only works 10-15 hours a week? Be honest. I’m a highly levered manager and outsource everything. Bless up.


Was not given a promotion this year because I had my first child; responsibility adjustment period. But found out the guy on the team got promoted, he had his second child. #sexism #fuckit


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.
