When you hear your manager discussing how he "isn't too thrilled about the idea of a project in Dubai..." And you fight the urge to jump up and down screaming "PUT ME IN, COACH! PUT ME IN!"
Tips for declining but not really declining a project? Think I may have committed career suicide already...
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
Have a strong feeling the lead on my current project is about to be replaced. Laying low.
That moment when your client tells the engagement partner of your project that if his son weren't married he would try to set you up with him...
"There's been another scope change from the client...they no longer want this thing you've spent the last 3 weeks on" 😀🔫
Rolling of my project EoY, been with the same client for 3+ years. I don't mind sticking with the same industry but will I face a lot of grief if I start look at projects in other industries?
When your project isn't that demanding so you're inundated with endless admin tasks... #holidaydinner #teamevent #teamholidaydinnerevent
After 3 years in commercial, i decided to join a federal project. everyday now feels like a vacation.
How did a project failure (that had consequences for the client) affect you? How did you feel, and how were you able to move on? I feel like I'm watching all of my hard work go right down the drain...
"Hello from Auto-Replyyyyyy." - Adele... reading my Outlook inbox as I send emails on to the client on a Sunday during the holidays, per the partner's instruction.
Traveling for the holidays, and greeted with Accenture transforming business ads in every airport terminal. If only the firm can be as creative in their client engagements as they are in their ad making.
Share some ratchet stories. Once our team took the client out to hibachi everyone got blasted and I fucked a girl that worked for the client. Your turn.
When your client stakeholder tells you to get a pixie cut so that you blend in with the rest of the team. Um, WHAT?
