In accenture countdown site. I can see project as '' bench-state''.. What does it means??
Have to chose between United, American, and Southwest for direct flight to new project. I’m a Delta guy so am clueless regarding benefits. Thoughts?
So got client dilema: Did business case last year. Erased data. Now clients wants to pursue. New business case I rebuilt doesnt match at all. Current upside is 25% of prior year. I am pretty sure I made a mistake last year Do I present the new case, do I play crazy? Do I quit the firm in shame and move to south america? What would you do?
New to KPMG- out of town at a client, how does claiming a per diem work? I've just been buying my meals with my corporate card
Does anyone sign their emails at the end with their initials of their first and last name? I'm not sure how I feel about that, I've noticed quite a lot of people in the firm and at the client who do.
Hey fish, need some career advice. I recently got promoted to senior! We have been working on a client deliverable to close a project and my current engagement has two made directors who I work with directly( one just got promoted from SM this July ) . During one of our discussions in putting this doc together, I may have come out as “aggressive”/“opinionated . I’m generally the quiet one , asking for feedback and listening in mostly. I didn’t realize it in the moment but at that point (contd)
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
I'm stunned that my team is suggesting we work during the shutdown. Unless your project is in chaos (this isn't) that shouldn't be on the table. Go ahead and give me a bad rating, I won't do it
Currently double booked, and absolutely livid after a meeting to discuss my allocation and the Partner who keeps promising more and more of my time to his client had the audacity to look at me and tell me with a straight face that I need to learn to say no more. EVERT TIME I SAY NO YOU OVERRIDE ME AND SAY IT'S NOT THAT MUCH WORK AND WE JUST NEED TO GET IT DONE. Of course the two men just agreed that I needed to stop being so nice, as there was any kind of way for me to win here
I have seen a lot of interest in PM roles in this group. Can anyone explain the difference between product and program management? Is product more strategic vision and program is basically glorified project management?
Question: I am in California and we use Google calendar and my client, based in Phoenix, uses Microsoft Teams. All their recurring meetings (initiated by them) are still showing on my calendar at the same time instead of moving it forward by an hour. Did anyone has this problem?
I am new to consulting and I have never felt more insecure. I am the subject matter expert for my team and a liaison with the client but most of the technical stuff is going over my head. I think part of the issue is that I feel like I am going to have to defend every choice I make. I am not used to that and I just don't get some concepts. Also, there are not many women and I have worked in mainly female work environments until now.
I’m currently working as a in house Salesforce Marketing Cloud Admin for a local organization and interviewing at Slalom Consulting. I like working within an organization and it sounds like at Slalom, you generally work with one client at a time. Anyone move from an end client to consulting or vice versa and have any advice?
Client recently hired a POC as CMO. Is it weird to be excited? I feel like a lot of good ideas died due to bias from the previous CMO. But also don’t wanna assume the new guy is “woke" he’s def smart.
On a new project serving in a Product Manager role, any certifications, courses, books etc you’d recommend?
Hey all, I had a web application running on Google App Engine (from 2011). Didn’t need much caretaking and at some point appengine got an overhaul and now I can’t figure out how to navigate the setup. I’m told the project needs an organization but I can’t figure out how to connect the ancient project with my org. Any googlear out there with some insight?
Is it true that client side pays more than agency? And if anyone is open to disclose what their salary jump was?
Currently on a project that has nothing to do with me. I understand developing a new skill set but I have no past experience that aligns with the scope and deliverables of the project. I've spoken with the PM and they say I'm still the best fit. I think it's just due to the firm being understaffed. Time to talk to my direct to get off that project? Thoughts?
Have a side project that is doing well, looking to raise some money. How much should I give for seed funding?
What's the best consulting firms for H1B folks who have studied masters in STEM here? Got a cousin graduating this fall and he needs to know H1B/GC policies.
Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance
Best office chair for under 150
How are the L3Harris benefits? I read something about unlimited PTO, but in reality it’s like 4 weeks. How’s the 401k match? Is it common to have a 9/80 schedule? I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn...hence all the questions. :-)
Anyone know Hilton corp. codes?

I'm an engineer w/ BS/MS, have had engineer, PM and Tech Sales roles. I am interested in consulting and would love to speak more with some current employees about a referral!

Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
