You’re so tough

I wish you did this to me at D ;)

What firm is this? I have a project that's really critical that I can't afford to screw up and I'm looking for a tough associate that doesn't take no crap.

You know what’s better than hurting your firm’s (and your own and the rest of your team’s) reputation by failing to deliver a project? Doing your job and then never working with that person again after the project is over.

That’s the beauty of consulting: everything in this job is only for now.

In all seriousness this is a really stupid move and you are playing with fire. The day you become manager and someone does this to you , you ll realise ...

This is a hypothetical. If OP keeps damaging projects and interfering with the success of the firm, they're not going to make manager.

I think OP can do this though. There are times in life where people are deeply unfair to you in ways that are difficult to rectify. Homework assignment for OP: do a bit of Googling and try to find ways to settle these types of conflicts without interfering with the success of the firm's engagements. It's not easy to do, but others have before and I've been helped by available knowledge in setting these types of disputes in the past.

Sometimes these situations can be difficult. If you can settle your disputes amicably, then the project and you can both be successful. Anger, young Padawan, is the path to the dark side. Choose peace.

How did you “tank the project”

like

It depends on the project, I’ve seniored engagements where I am the only deep data guy who understands the client business as I mapped it from the start; if I do jack shit 8 weeks into a 16 week engagement they are fucked to deliver on time and make accurate recommendations

*Hired to implement a new IT system for a client

*Sabotaged the current IT system and destroyed the work of their colleagues in implementing the new one instead

OP, do you know why you get a direct deposit in your bank every week? Do you know what that money is for? Why they give it to you?

Will I really have to work crazy hours and have no WLB to get a 150K+ salary? Lol is it possible to have a more chill job (40-45 hrs/week) and make that much or does stress just come with the territory? These posts about working 50+ hours a week scare me. My current project has me working at most 45 hours a week during a go-live but normally it’s around 30-40. Is there any way around working so much to the point it’s disruptive to our lives?
