I’m currently on the bench and had a senior colleague reach out to me about assisting with a work item. I volunteered to help (but I can’t charge my time). There was (to my knowledge) an entire team of individuals working on the project up until last week so it seemed to me that my help wasn’t really needed. The project is spinning down and they’ve lessened the team members, but I’m still helping out with tasks. I don’t mind helping at all, but it seems weird. Am I thinking into this too much?
Is it normal to be asked to do a case study (interview) by a senior manager before he staffs me on his project ? I got this job after going through recruiting at B school. Why again ?
What's the procedure of changing projects? I'm stuck with an internal project and nothing is systematic here. Please advice any ethical way to change project soon.
To my fellow consultants @deloitte. Do most y’all end up working 50 hours average in a week or is it just me? Asking for a friend here....it’s my first deloitte project
I feel like I’m hitting a glass ceiling of sorts when it comes to representing clients at important events (ie, mediation, hearing, etc.). I’ll handle everything up until that point, but then I get the sense that the client wants the partner to step in and handle the big event. These same partners have told me they think I can handle it and would like for me to, but we ultimately have to meet the client’s expectations.
Got assigned a project that's usually overseen by a manager today to do myself. I'm an associate going into my third year. Think we're short on managers?
Work locally and only work with client (never with the rest of the team) any idea how I should go about telling them I'm working from home on Friday since that expectation hasn't been set yet ?
How do you handle client asking you a question for which you know the general trend. But they push you further on questions you don't know. Is saying I'm going to look into it and get back to you good enough?

Hiring Manager: “...we’re looking to make a fast decision...” Cut to 4wks later: 7 interviews, presentation round, and now a potential “personality check” with client. FML
i feel like it’s not possible for me to work on client facing jobs given how sensitive and not laid-back I am. I work smart, but I can’t seem to just “fuck whatever the client says” like my manager tells me to
Just started in consulting 2 weeks ago don’t really know what’s going on , which way to turn or hoe to prepare myself. The people seek nice but haven’t step foot in the building to meet anyone in person due to covid so it’s hard to truly tell. Haven’t been on an engagement yet just lost

Can someone explain how so many people have competing offers for negotiation? I keep hearing “don’t expect to have a strong case for negotiation unless you have a competing offer”. Wouldn’t that have to line up perfectly with you interviewing for multiple roles at the same time?? An offer has a quick expiration period... or do you negotiate with an expired offer you rejected within the past few weeks.
