What’s your trick/method to speed up deck development process when it’s a last minute request from client, requires new content and you have no templates or example decks to leverage? Im a very thorough and detailed oriented person who has trouble delivering “just enough”. Client just informed me of urgent needs that require me to deliver detailed materials by tomorrow, no existing examples for me to leverage.
I'm taking off next week. A partner asked if I could do a massive project I said yes but my bandwidth is limited till I get back from vacation. Why do I feel like I did something bad?

How do handle a client after losing a hearing? What do you say or how do you explain it? I always explain the risks beforehand, but when I lose my clients seem shocked. Do you have a pep talk? Any words of wisdom you commonly share?
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
How do you deal with a partner who makes you feel terrible about not just your work but yourself? This is a female partner who is older and a leader in her practice area. She comments on how I speak and it veers into personal criticism. Anything I offer to a project she shuts down, but if her favored paralegal says the same thing, she publicly praises her. I feel like they tag team me and unfortunately I can't completely stop working with them.
My client stakeholders keep requesting for meetings left, right, and centre, leaving me only time after 5 pm to work. What is a polite way to decline these requests. I don’t want to come across as not wanting to meet.
I’ve always heard the stories of friends and colleagues working for toxic, narcissistic clients. I always wondered if they were exaggerating or somehow slightly contributing to the situation (as it takes two to tango). Well, I regret to say that for the first time in my 15 year career I am working for a client who is truly a nightmare. Tips to deal?

Seeking advice on my dilemma. Currently a Manager at Deloitte, with a possible Senior Manager promotion in 2023. No guarantees of course. Awaiting EB3 EAD. Also initiating an EB2 app. Should I try and move to a different Big4 firm if I can get a level bump? New EB2 app, PERM and I-140 approval (premium) might take a year. Will need 485j. Or should I just stay at Deloitte and try for the SM promotion, while waiting for my EB2 EAD? Current base: $183K, 12 YOE.
Are there opportunities to work India while continuing to work from EY USA? I’m looking to be home for a few months but cannot move there at the moment as my green card process was initiated recently
Got denied promotion a 2nd year in a row. Already acting as manager on my current projects and feeling a bit down.

Let’s work next year to get you there.

When I worked at a charter school, the administrators also taught at least 1 course in addition to administrative duties. It really made them aware of what teachers were facing in the classroom. I don't think this is common. Do you think it's a good idea?

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
