Sometimes I crack myself up writing briefs. Like girl why you so serious. Like it’s a phone not a peace treaty. It’s ketchup not American nostalgia. I get that we’re supposed to make meaning out of commodities and differentiate itself but man it’s just noise. The products and the brands don’t catch up with the insights. It is love we want; it is Calvin Klein Eternity we buy. How do y’all deal?
Hi ladies, I’ve created a bowl to have men’s and women’s point of view about managing organisations and people, either at our own work place between colleagues or between client - teams. I was inspired to create this as I have very different types of clients, across hierarchical and flat structures, and often in a change management environment there are always challenges that are bound to happen, as consultant. Feel free to join a healthy debate, share your experience & learn from one another: https://joinfishbowl.com/bowl_zn9pwqc43r

I’ll have my own association and plan on being a solo advisor practice.
I'm new to consulting and in my project, I see the other SA trying to take credit for all the work that I do in one way or the other. I almost feel like I'm not adding any value to the team...

PwC only provides high deductible w/ HSA plans. Even the “low deductible plan” has a deductible in the thousands. What if you’re a new joiner that is in the middle of expensive medical care?

Has anyone here lived through a recession before? (Not counting the mini Covid one in 2020) curious how well consulting firms maintain their workforce and high performers. I feel like late 2023/24-2026 could be due for some rough times
