I’ve been working for my client for about a year and love my projects and client team and have had strong performance-however my team running the PMO is disorganized, burnt out, and teetering on the verge of a major mishap if the trend continues. I’m looking elsewhere but have a strong relationship with our client leadership contacts…..how would I float the idea of them taking me client-side?
How many of you feel anxious about change, I.e., new project, new people, new content and anxious to overperform? Wish average performance was okay @ McK. The firm can really bruise your confidence

My partner finishes their day at 6pm and logs off til morning. I tend to check emails and respond to emails til about 9pm. I am forever replying to questions and threads for the both of us, and sometimes i’m stuck making the call on art direction when that’s not my expertise. What do I do? If I don’t answer emails in evening I feel like balls will drop. I can’t demand that they work after hours too. Anyone else go through this on either side? Is 9-6 doable in our advertising
Anyone else ever feel like a completely inadequate consultant? I'm struggling with performance quality on this project because I just feel dumb and it demotivates me to really strive to improve. Possibly also impacted by burnout because I performed well on other engagements and enjoyed my teams more. Just not sure where to go from here to get where I need to be.
Any tips on starting a side project to boost my chance of getting hired as a PM without technical experience?

Hi fishes, Please help me decide from the below two roles : Deloitte USI - Another resource for a very long term internal project. EY India - I would be given the responsibility of basically building up an SAP vertical from almost the scratch, along side a client facing project. Renumeration is not a concern. 6 YOE, SAP Tech Consulting
Any advice would be helpful. Recently started at a tech consultancy and am building up the HR function. Thanks!
MBB really missed the boat on this practice area
Asking for my spouse. She is five months pregnant and has a amazon offer. She works for Deloitte too. Deloitte definitely has a better maternity leave but amazon is doubling her take home salary. Also agreed to work from home for two years. Thoughts? Stress wise her Deloitte practice ( strategy) is probably as stressful or more as compared to amazon role so it literally boils down to maternity benefits for us.

My employer was acquired yesterday and I got word that my termination is effective today, but I have a meeting with someone from the acquiring company’s HR today to review separation documentation and discuss a potential consulting agreement.

When I hear consulting, I think of reduced benefits, mainly lack of health insurance which wouldn’t be ideal.
