Hey, have some empathy - you at least have the benefit of having some understanding of how difficult it can be on the other side at times.

Consultants are an embarrassing lot. Nobody wants them but companies keep them to reduce the pain of hiring people for that dirty work.

No empathy from me. I knew these guys at old firm and they were so elitist on who could work with them... Only for me to come work here now and see that it’s not rocket science and all their “day one shooters” are subpar. The most I do for them is to deflect all the negative remarks my boss has about them and pretend they’re just having a bad time.

Do people ever get caught lying about hours? I can see other associates hours, and there is one person who gets online at 10 and off by 4 but still some how manages to put 10 hrs down of billables. I work so hard just to honestly put that many hours in so it’s frustrating. Just wondering if it ever catches up to people.

During my PTO, my SM called me and asked me to start plugging myself in and he mentioned that I don't want to be left behind. He asked me to set up a call during my PTO to "catch up" with the rest of the team. I cannot wait to get out of this company as this is kinda touching my bottom line.

Vulnerable post: how do I stop overpromising and underdelivering? I have always been very mature, motivated and focused. I would start 10 things and maybe finish 9. But it was energy/sprint. As a manager and above, I feel I have no solid foundation. I have a ton of accomplishments, which means I’m not a complete loss to project management but I feel like I’m constantly failing to meet my expectations and/or the big goals I commit to. Big goals engage but paralyze me. Small bites don’t motivate

D*ck move or nah? Worked at MBB before MBA. Interned at Google. Got a FT offer - TC in line with consulting. Didn't want to go back into consulting, but applied to a few companies as backup plan (before I received G's offer). Now, I got an MBB interview. I think I have good chances - I mean, I did the job before, my casing skills are solid, and my background is alright. But honestly, I'd do it just so I could use a potential offer as leverage to ask Google for more money. So, d*ck move nah?

Nosedive does exist. Deloitte manager here, been early promoted, recognized as a high performer and had always enjoyed the project until 2021, everything starts to fall apart.
