Currently in a rotational program at EY (first year out of undergrad). Got placed on a long term risk project and wondering if it’s worth it staying long term. Currently interviewing for the strategy team at a legacy payments company (think visa or Mastercard) and wondering if it’ll stifle growth doing internal consulting. Would definitely appreciate any insights on this as I’m not too sure who who talk to and ask. Thanks!
W+K is a talented company, but it doesn't matter what shop wins the Ford account. The problem lies within Ford. OEMs are the worst client, because of the siloed bureaucracy that exists.
Pro se plaintiff, an attorney, filed a complaint alleging mold defects after closing on a property. Client, layperson, may have agreed orally to a settlement amount without proof of damages prior to filing appearance and obtaining an attorney. Client filed appearance pro se, then plaintiff sent over a draft settlement agreement few weeks later which client didn’t sign. Client then got an attorney, filed answer, etc. Can this oral agreement be voided for coercion, indefinite mat’l term, etc?

For some reason, I never have issues with clients or the work at hand, but it's always internal people that give me the most grief. Everything can be going great with the client and project, and then an M just comes in to rain on the parade. How are these people building "eminence." Who wants to work with people that are always pessimistic and irritated.

Going to tell Leadership this week that I want to be rolled off. Another project has requested me and that project is better aligned to my career. Any advice to have a smooth conversation?
Well the good news is that my manager said it would be done by Monday morning to the client. The bad news is that he sent that email to the client at 7pm Friday and never texted me. Wait both are bad.
I don’t admire my project leadership and sometimes loose my motivation to work on the project. How do guys deal with this scenario?

I am not learning anything new from them (I don’t know everything but I feel I am solving small problems and don’t really getting anything new from the project)

Should I be looking at more security analyst/admin roles first? Going for certs? Getting a masters? Wondering what I can do to improve my chances. TIA

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?￼

I spent the last 3 months "growing up" & now I'm ready to go. 1st thing is for me to get my own place. I'd like to buy instead of rent because I don't want to pay someone else's mortgage. I'm thinking of selling my car & cash out some of my 401k to buy a house. My thought is to put down 3.5% for a FHA loan then make a big payment towards the principal to reduce long-term interest. Anything wrong with this thinking or anything else I should consider?
