I am creating so much documentation I know this client will let sit and rot and nobody will maintain it.
For those back in office are y’all just wearing masks indoors and is it affecting the way you work? I’m pro-vaccine and masks indoors when crowded. But can’t help think it being uncomfortable having the mask on working 8+ hours and taking client calls when you could have it off working at home 🏠
Is it rude to suggest to a new analyst that she needs to look more professional, e.g. don’t show up with wet hair to client meetings (even if on Zoom)? FYI I’m also a female and just trying to look out for these new hires
My memory is terrible lately. Boss and client noticed during a work dinner, asked how I keep up with my job. I felt very scolded...
One thing moved from consulting to industry - there is no def of done in the traditional company.... one project last 5+ years n keep going.... no one seems to know the full picture, the bottom truth. I tried my very best to keep it together, but with new answers popping up everyday I m mentally exhausted n don't feel like I gain transferable skills for my next career move. Promotion runs on managers promises which may or may not be come true. Now I m thinking about jump....
Project ended suddenly and had to cancel my flights. How can I capitalize on travel credit? Or do policies restrict this?
Started a new project in Hollywood. Suddenly went from a solid 6-7 to a measly 3 🥺. Everyone here is so freaking handsome! Haaalp!
Realize someone recently asked this in the main bowl, but... Why don’t we have anything in place to track actual hours worked vs. the 40 billed to the client? Could provide many insights
Project management software - ours sucks. Looking into replacements. Anybody have ones they love? Reasons why? Need it primarily for managing internal workflow (non client-facing). Please help!
Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
130k with 7 YOE (change management/project management), per FB post, I feel like I’m extremely underpaid. Will similar position in MBB or FAANG pay a lot more (assuming same non technical role)
I know this is a story that repeats in this bowl but I’ve finally reached my end with this industry. While the pay is great, I’ve grown to dread work. I understand that client side isn’t utopia but where else does a “seasoned” ad person end up?
I’m very into indian arts culture and myself learned classical dance forms (3), Carnatic singing, and violin, but I am interested to hear about some more arts you all might be engaging in as hobbies or passions. I really like to work with my hands to create something. Right now I’m working on a project to learn interior design using high end, business professional desi design patterns in my apt. What are some other nice arts culture hobbies inspired by India?

What is the most ‘chill’ and least stressful line of service in consulting? Or is it mainly just project dependent? I was on one project for 6 months, boring as all hell but I only worked 30 hours a week.
Currently in cloud consulting at a Big 4. I’m starting to think about what I want to do next. I’d love to work for a Microsoft, Google, Amazon type company. Has anyone made this move?
I got hired into a New York office during 2020 and have been paying NYC tax ever since. But I NEVER moved to NYC due to covid and have been a Texas resident the entire time. It looks like a form will be released in Feb 2021 letting me request a refund? What’s my chance of success with this? https://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/ads/efile_addit203-2d.htm
I am an Admin Assistant. I do admin, project coordination and lead a few projects. I am often in meetings with a lot of execs & from my experience (even in my team), I find that people seem to think lowly or are dismissive of admins work. I am currently looking at entry roles in consulting but am worried hirers will see my title & dismiss my application too. My friend suggested changing my title to Project Assistant or Coordinator on my resume to reflect what I do now but this feels like lying?
I’m miserable at my job but want to wait it out until I take an upcoming vacation in July. Is it stupid that I’m not looking for jobs when I’m completely bored, uninspiring and irritated everyday?

I got laid off and 3 weeks later a SC from HR sends me an email about an opening at the firm. Should I apply???
Planning for a family (of 4) trip to either Greece or Portugal in late fall this year. Flight costs are almost same. Any pointers as to which one would provide biggest bang for the buck? We're mostly laid back, don't care for top end luxury, not great hikers. Just looking a relaxing vacation.
Hello Bainees 🐠 I was invited to attend a Bain London “Curious about Consulting” event 2 weeks ago, after a CV submission, and given particular timeline to apply and interview dates. And I have strong reason to apply to London (used to work and live in London, currently based in Paris) On the other hand, a good friend who is a Manager at Bain’s Helsinki office is willing to refer me to Bain’s Stockholm office. But I have a relative weaker reason there. What do you suggest? Bain & Company
Question for those who know the exit process at Deloitte: If you leave Deloitte (put in your two weeks) do they just pay you for your already earned unused PTO or do they ask you to take it instead of working your last two weeks?
Any insight on Captech? Looking for manager level salary, benefits, culture, etc. Thanks.
Any NYC 🐠 have a rec for a good PCP near union square/east village? My current Dr is a total quack...
