Hey everyone, I’m looking for a referral for tech consulting, have 1 offer from another B4 and I’m in my last year of undergrad
New to consulting and the big 4 - have been extended on the same project since joining. The project does not align to the skills or experience I was hired for and has been extremely challenging due to the lack of project organization and proper staffing. I received ‘progressing towards level’ on my last engagement review. How do I get off this project that’s clearly not a fit before it negatively impacts my overall career at the firm?
Just transferred from a midsize to a big 4. Do the ladies here have any advice on how to get out of my shell and actually introduce myself to people. Any advice regarding big 4 would be helpful!
