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!"
Note of caution. Monday morning travel doesn't mix well with a client site team who are all morning people. I'm on my third cup of coffee and I still can't catch up with these people.
Don't even care that I am going to be waking up at ungodly hours and that i'll be running a project for my least favorite client... because I'll be in Chicago baby!
When your Midwestern client discovers the remnant henna on your hands from your friends wedding and thinks you have skin disease #cantmakethisup
Working the politics on a project where the client has some internal beefs going on between some stakeholders. I’m essentially being asked to take sides. Not sure how to engage or disengage?
When the IT "experts" at your client office spend the first 30 minutes of every meeting figuring out how to sort columns in excel
I'm starting a four month project in Detroit starting Monday. Like if you're jealous of my jet-setting lifestyle.
When you leave the client and work at the hotel and get food to go from the downstairs restaurant so often that when you come to dine in, they're automatically writing down your to go order.
Managers that essentially do nothing all day but claim their "guidance" is crucial to the project.
You know what's not a bad sign? When the client puts your team on mute six times during the call. -_-
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...
Client drops a proposal today #fml
When the client sponsor asks you to move today's meeting to tomorrow. I was supposed to fly home in 3 hours. 😞
I wouldn't dream of brushing my teeth, or dancing with my Swiffer during a face-to-face meeting with my client, but during a conference call? Oh, hell yeah.
How do I get out of a lame project I got suckered into leading, with no end in sight? Considering blowing it up just to GTF outta there.
Checked in to my flight for tomorrow's slap of reality and got an email saying that project kick-off is delayed 2 more weeks, don't travel tomorrow. Time to hit the slopes!

Checkout the Wingz app. It's basically Uber for airport pickups/drop-off only. Schedule in advance if you want. No surge. What a simple idea to capitalize on. Bonus: You can choose your driver.
My laptop bag fell off my citiBike and got run over by a bus.... Fffffffuuuuuucccccckkkkkkk!
Country wide, everybody in my company is applying to the same bschool. Essentially same competitive pool. This will be fun.
I just started at Accenture in late Feb with their resources group(Industry X) as a Senior Analyst (L10)at 88k and 10k signon. Last week AlliantGroup offered a PM role in the 179D group at 160k= perf bonus. I am planning on taking that offer to ACN given my experience (9 Yr in Oil & Gas engineering) and education (TAMU MBA) and use it as leverage to get bumped up to consultant (L9) or senior consultant (L8). Is this a sound strategy for current or former Accenture peeps? Thoughts?
Planning a bachelor party, optimizing for three things: a) good bar scene b) spg hotel c) flights under $600 from NYC...suggestions?
GUYS. Just created the ultimate hotel hack for heating up food since SHERATON decided that MICROWAVES aren't necessary. 1. Make hot water in coffee machine 2. Put food in bag for ice 3. (Cont.)
