On hold for a project that seems like it's never going to start. Torched my already not great utilization
Hello all, What does it mean when in a Job Description it is written - ' Hands on experience in XYZ Technology ' ? Is it like they are asking for 'Realtime Relevant Client Project Experience' or just some Practical Exposure of Technology ( may or may not be a Client Project Experience) ?
Both client & some on my team speak Hindi. They have held business convo switching between the two and I have said I can't follow. They continue to do this? Should I ask to be rolled off the project?
Anyone that’s jumped from the D to MBB, I am curious how different the work is? I love my team, project city, but I’m not interested in the project. How much better is the work at MBB at analyst lvl?
What does your firm do for evening meals if you work late? Most of our offices bring in a meal couple of nights a week but will no reimburse if in town and working late at a client.
What’s the difference in severity between messing up enough to get rolled off a project and enough to be put on a performance improvement plan?

I'm hitting my personal lowest. I'm taking vacation next week to just "be at home" and don't answer emails. I am on local project but pretty burned out so really all I want to do is anything but work.
This is for ACN fish or ex acn fish. The project I'm on (more like a staff aug but we're there to support the client deliver their internal project) isn't doing well. I'm new to ACN - well, big consulting in general, so trying to understand what that means for us, and for me? (Also, for context - I'm one of the 4 SM's on this engagement (it's a large client and we have a 10+ team)). Continued in comments below...
Huron 🐟. I'm interested in a project manager position that isn't offered in my local office. If I apply, will I be expected to relocate or is it flexible?
Is it just me or is being a manager way easier than being an SC or below? I feel like it’s so easy and mindless 80% of the time. Especially after a project is up and running. Caveat: I have a great tech lead who owns that part and a great team to deliver. Obviously this won’t always be the case. I’m looking for M horror stories
Messaging a partner from two projects ago as I’m on the bench. Is it okay to ask for proposal work or if there are project needs? Not sure what I “can” ask for
I'm reviewing books for our summer internship program. So far, pretty impressed by the students coming out of SVA. Some write "Creative Director: me" in credits for each project. Is that a thing? 😂
Got an offer from Guidehouse as a senior consultant in HIA back in January. The recruiter is MIA and not coming up with joining date and giving reasons like other PRoject team was put on bench and they will be allocated first before giving joining dates to the new hires.

Anyone else feeling like every single day of work in consulting with the current home office set up is a real pain & struggling to motivate to even care about the job? Any advice to regain motivation? Balancing long hours and constant time pressure without sitting together with the team and the client seems so much harder
Asking for a friend.. Say you left an audit firm and entirely by chance you ended up working for an audit client's company (a Big 4 firm in this case), but for a different audit team. Is there anything you need to worry about for independence rules?
I have to present to a client via video chat today. Guess I need to actually put on makeup and get dressed ...maybe just the top half.
How do I deal with a Manager who does not have the skill set or experience to lead the work? Like I see him struggling in front of the client in answering basic questions. I am a SC so what will you guys recommend in this situation?
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?

I received a $500 visa gift card and want to get something nice for myself. Any suggestions?
Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
Have an interview for M&A analsyt 2 in the MENA region with EY. I really want this job!!! Any tips are GREATLY appreciated.
Does anyone know of recruiting firms with a focus on Anti-money laundering? I’m foreign educated and newly admitted NY attorney with CAMS certification but living in Miami lol. I’m here, because my husband practices in SoFlo. Any recommendations? I don’t have any experience but have CAMS.
Been friends w/ a girl for years since I met her overseas (chatting on phone often). When we started travelling together on a few trips, she annoyed me on so many levels, we are just not compatible so I no longer want to travel with her. I still value our friendship and don't mind continuing catching up on the phone. I'm non-confrontational so instead telling her i find her difficult/annoying, I just stopped inviting her/avoid trips/added a lil more distance. But she doesn't get it..-contd
Confession: Whenever my clients talk about union avoidance, I secretly think, I’m on the side of the workers... Nobody tell my partners 🤫
I seriously doubt some of the recruiters and hiring managers in the big4s now a days, their decisions w.r.t. designation and pay depends on their mood and willingness to work on a particular day.. They will interview for X designation and then will ghost you and then will come back with a lower level and pay saying would you be interested?🤣 Why would somebody be interested to join at a lesser pay, when he/she is currently well in his/her job and just found the opportunity more interesting...
My Kellogg interview is in a couple days but I haven’t received a zoom link yet. Should I contact them tomorrow?
