Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?
Are consultants only seemingly more capable (at times) because we dedicate all our client-facing time on a single project vs. juggling multiple projects? All my client's leadership teams seem like a mess but I think it's just due to their lack of opportunity to focus on anything for long enough to know what's going on. Am I thinking about this completely wrong?
Any solutions architects here? If so, how did you get started in consulting. Best project/ worst project.
Any recommendations on a carry on bag with a trolley sleeve for me to slip on over my roller carry on? A nice larger size one that can fit both client and acn laptop?
If a CD assigns more creatives to a project than there are budgeted billable hours, is that squarely on him/her or is Account also culpable?
Took a flight back from client at noon. Bumped to first class. I swear they tried to get me drunk 🍸🍸🍸🍸
Client reached out and asked if I would be interested in joining his team last month. Said I’ll follow up in a week and didn’t. Is it ok to reach out a month later to see if the offer is still on?
What's the pay range to ask from Amazon if you're accepted in a Project Manager kind of role and you come from big 4 consulting as a manager? Is 160-170K a good range to give? Too high or too low?
Lol my firm halted all sales travel but continued client travel. Just waiting for someone to get sick so I can sleep in my own bed for more than 8 nights a month
First time freelancing client-side and it's 🤯. No one really cares about deadlines, budgets, or external commitments. Is it this company (tech startup), or is this life client-side?
Does anyone have examples of their invoice template? I’m working a part-time contract for a company, and they do want my time tracked by project. Hoping to not spend time making from scratch.
I am working for 12-14 hours a day in a non client facing role at one of the big 4. What are some of the exit opportunities I can think of in the next 1-2 years? I want to have a 9-6 job with decent pay.

LA people... Does anyone live in SW? Have a potential project and looking into locations. Long Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach?
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.
I have been assigned 50% staffing but my Project manager expects me to put in 100% time as I am not staffed on any other project. Is it fair for him to expect this? I am upset as this affects my utility rate.
Thoughts on exiting to a $200M company (top line), reporting to the CEO & COO... director strategic initiatives.. pay is similar to MBB Manager comp. can you ever go back to large F50 if you take these roles ?
Just met Bill Gates at the Marriott lounge....
I think my problem is that I will never care as much about client service as I do about sleep
Monday afternoon thoughts - new week, new motivation but same old boring annoying client! #ThisLife

What is the variable component in KGS? My recruiter told me it is 10 percent of the fixed comp, but it is not mentioned in the offer letter. Can someone please confirm on this
EY's fiscal year ends in June and effective July 1st utilization resets. How fitting that there is a heavy emphasis on keeping utilization up in the coming weeks. 😂
Do holiday weekends like Labor Day make job posters / recruiters want to close on a job posting and make a decision beforehand or does that usually have no weight in decision timelines?
