Client meeting on Friday afternoon 😞
That awkward moment when you type <3 to a client in Skype chat and it auto changes it to ❤️
For the first time in 5 years in this job I truly love my team, my manager and the work I do. Client really likes our team and is nothing but helpful. It happens! Wish that for everyone here. TGIF
Is staying on a project and being the one the current manager coaches up for manager the only way to get a promoted to manager? I’m experienced enough and have leadership and financial reporting responsibilities but I’m not as tenure as the other senior and she has more leadership responsibility. Assuming zero shot at manager?
Can someone share responsibilities and day to day activities of Associate Principal (Project management) / project CEO?
Something’s been weighing on my mind. I messed up in a steering committee & tripped infront of the Sr. Client Stakeholders. I made a few other mistakes and was rolled off by my manager (SM) b/c I sucked and it was a higher burn engagement he needed a stronger BA. Now I find out he might’ve been laid off and I can’t help but to think it was my fault. We never really talked after this engagement but I feel like it’s my clumsiness that him fired and it makes me feel guilty and give a me anxiety.
Anyone from North Highland have a few minutes to connect and share your experience? Recruiters reached out on LinkedIn and I want to learn more about the company, culture, project and people. North Highland
Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere? Context: had an incredibly challenging year with a huge project that completed successfully. Extremely complex tasks and long hours. Got an award for “disruption” but in summary, the role evolved and now I want to ask for market adjustment /as well as merit raise. I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?
Love it when the leadership realizes that the presentation was supposed to be unbranded 9 months into the project and 30 status reports later😳🔫
QUESTION -When you have a great passion project / bottom drawer idea that you keep bringing out and trying to bring back to life - ie you’ve had it in a couple of agencies - who owns it? It wasn’t for a brief, and it was worked on above and beyond the general hours of work. And it’s never been bought.
Hi all, I got a job offer at EY as consultant. I was told by my friends that for this particular role, there is no guarantee of the job location. Meaning, it keeps changing based on the project Is it true? Can anyone working/worked at EY confirm this? Tech stack : Java developer
Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter. I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired. Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?
Sent the wrong document to a client. It’s the second time I’ve done this (last time was two years ago) but same partner in copy. Would they think it’s a pattern? I know this is not an uncommon mistake but I have actually never seen anyone making it…and I’m feeling pretty useless right now as I have been drowning with work and was afraid something like this would happen :(
EY fish. I just joined the firm from KPMG in July, and am an experienced senior data scientist. I need to get off the project I’m currently on. Is anyone looking to staff their project? It will make it easier to speak with my resource manager. Please help!
Could someone from Accenture help me clarify what it means to be within AFS Applied Intelligence? Like I’m being hired into that group but is that a select group internally or will I be on a project? If I’m on a project what’s the point of being in the AI group?
Hello Fishes, How to find a Development project in TCS ? Soon I will be released from my current project. I have 3.8 YOE and want to change my Tech Stack. Thanks.
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
Are there any attorney roles that are collaborative? I’m a transactional associate and there are aspects of my job that I really enjoy, but I can’t stand how solitary it is. (I don’t consider client conference calls collaborative haha) Long-term, I need to be in a role that requires more team work/collaboration/social interaction...but the longer I work as an attorney the more I feel like I’ll need to leave legal practice to get that. I’m wondering if there’s a legal option I haven’t considered

Is Deloitte m&a “management office” team the equivalent to pwc DDV practice or more tied to S& work?They’ve reached out a few times but unsure if it’s only PMO or diligent mixed. Trying to understand the role better to see if it’s worth the stress of interviewing!
First time leaving firms - not sure what to do with my 401k. Should I keep it as it is, transfer to an IRA, or a Roth IRA. If it is the latter, I know Roth IRA has a 6k limit but my 401k has ~17k. Will it exceed the limit and if so, what should I do? 22 here, not too familiar with the process. Thanks!

Seeking gift guidance for my mom! Her birthday is coming up and I normally get her experiences as gifts so that we can do something together (a show, a game, etc). I live far away now and it won’t be feasible to come home; she’s being pretty covid cautious, so most experiences are off the table. Any suggestions? She is 68, loves taking walks and talking to friends, and never feels like she has enough time in the day (1-2yrs to retirement). All suggestions welcome, wide price range!

How difficult is it to move from McKinsey to Bain/BCG in the same region? Just a little worried about the story I should tell. My actual reasons are/would be comp + radical shift in office culture. I’m a solid performer (1+6, with T+ and T ratings so far). For reference, my Mck office has grown 3x since I joined, while Bain/BCG are still small in the region and trying to grow.

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
Currently a Manager at KPMG Strat with MBA (6YOE) - wondering what L4/5 I should aim for at FB and Google. Thanks!
Friends, what's the best way to get into deals advisory or similar? my sister who's a STEM with 2-3 YOE wants to go into deals advisory (her end goal is VC/PE). Is anyone who's made a similar move up to speak with her and possibly make a referral?
Any advice in starting the search for an exit opp? Or if you know if any good opportunities in nyc/remote? Consulting is burning me at both ends of the wick and I need to be somewhere I can sustainably contribute, learn and grow. It’s hard to search when you’re working till 1am. A bit about myself: -3 yoe, mainly tech pm & scm work via consulting -degree in SCM and info sys, cert. scrum master -environment/culture is very important to me, good people, reasonable hours, etc.
