Don’t worry, it is not your problem. Firm will step in to save the face of the partner. I was on such humiliating project at D (write down of few million$). The folks who questioned and try to do the right thing didn’t get any benefit, but the folks who were doing lip service got promoted.. some became even partner/SM while the project was losing money (in millions)

Just make a new project plan. You'll have to adjust the scope given constraints but this doesn't feel super uncommon in the world of consulting tbh.

Current analyst (1.5 YOE) here with a strong interest in DevOps and Project Management. I feel like I am slowly but surely getting pigeon-holed in L&D work. I don’t like it, but my leaders continue to tell me that all experience is good experience. Should I try to breakout and find a variety of experience this early in my career or should I try to make it to 3 years and re-evaluate then? Have you had a similar experience? What have you done?

Just bought my first Goon of Balatroon. Bears vs. bulls theme with outfit and playing card airdrops coming, animated youtube series in the works. Cool project with a reasonable floor!

Hi Experts, One of my frnd put his resign in TCS on 20Sept21 but he want early release i.e. on 10th Oct.

When he can expect his relieving/Servuce letter in such case. Also will he face any negative legal action if he abscond after 10th and If he join another conpany will it be legally wrong for him?

Married fish - does your spouse help with gifting and if so tell me your secrets. Do you give gifts and send cards to family and friends for birthdays, holidays, and life events? I put a lot of importance on this and my husband doesn't, so I end up making all the effort to get thoughtful gifts for all our people... Even his side of the family. I resent his not trying to help and often not even finding time to sign the cards I get for others.
