Do we observe a holiday on 1st November?
So I recently learned about the Boston Molasses Disaster. Apparently, due to a lack of oversight, some giant molasses storage unit exploded into a wave that flooded the streets of Boston with millions of gallons of molasses causing massive damage to people and property. How crazy is that?? What are other historic engineering accidents worth looking into?
Anyone here work in consumer lending with a credit union? Interested in discussing pay structures to see how my credit Union compares.

My brother graduated with a bachelor’s in CS from UNG in May and has struggled to find a job. Hard worker, smart, introverted, and a good guy. If anyone knows of any entry-level tech opportunities, please DM me! Thanks.
What matters more to you, salary or title? I'm weighing two opportunities... one would be a lateral move in the sense that I'd have the same title, but would definitely be making more money. The other is a better title with more authority, but likely wouldn't be making more money when it comes down to it.
My male manager ghosts me. It’s my first project at a new firm and while there’s a super high level project plan there are no tasks. I’ve started sending a status every other day with what I worked on but I’m still not getting direction. I’ve asked and he kind of brushes it off. I’m really concerned that I’m going to get bad feedback. Any thoughts?
< 4 years of Salesforce experience. Got an offer that’s a 25% increase for a small company as a senior dev. Doesn’t seem challenging compared to consulting. Worth it or am I thinking too short term?
I want to make tax saving FD. Please let me know is it okay if we do it in any of the local banks.
Best firm to apply for to get an international Salesforce consulting position? (US citizen looking for an opp in Australia/ Europe)
Female here. Had a very successful first date recently - several hours long, interesting conversation, great chemistry. I felt a special connection and thought it was mutual. It’s been a long while since I’ve been excited about anyone and thanks to corona, it’s been a while since I’ve been in male company period, so I really want to accelerate things (see each other again soon) and not play it slow. He declined my offer to meet up today and didn’t seize the opportunity to make alternate plans.
I’m a boomerang employee and a friend of mine noticed that my company posted a similar job description to mine on indeed 10 days ago. My boss didn’t tell me they were hiring another person in our department (small department - 4 people). Should I be worried? Should I bring it up to my boss? I’m really stressing myself out over it. For reference I would consider myself a top performing employee / everyone was very excited when I boomeranged. Not sure if I’m overthinking (I do that a lot).

What type of industry roles would a consultant “generalist” be suited for? I have a lot of experience in tech (MarTech, Data, System Design… no coding experience though), marketing and customer strategy, analytics, product management, process and op model… but I don’t have any speciality or niche. I’m getting bored with consulting. Does anyone have any thoughts on what type of roles would be aligned to a person like me? (I’ve been consulting for 4 years, healthcare marketing prior for 5 years)

It's generally hit or miss with MBBs, B4s, Accenture etc. Over my career I've seen a mix of both exceptional and horrific work from all the large firms. It's the small niche firms that are generally pretty bad. Most only do superficial work in both breadth and depth. The deliverables skew style over substance. Before getting acquired, firms like Fahrenheit 212, Bionic, WhatIf, etc., were producing output that was downright embarrassing. Mid sized tech firms like Slalom, Huron, Protiviti, West Monroe are generally not producing anything impressive. I recently reviewed a deliverable from some tiny Brit firm called Elixirr and I could not believe someone paid seven figures for what they called a "strategy". Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I would have fired my manager if I got a product like that but apparently client was very happy.
Deloitte 2 - Was this deck for a US subsidiary of a global CPG? If so, I may have seen the same deck. :)
Highly dependent on practice. Had some incredible work done by Accenture, other times we've had to help client remove them.
BCG and Bain done great strategy we've taken over in the next phase bc we're deeper on a topic.
Implementation I generally have confidence in Accenture, Deloitte, EY and PwC in certain spaces
And what we have learned is that seemingly every firm has produced some great and some terrible stuff…where is our management of quality as an industry?
I do also wonder though- clients sometimes take something we might consider good, and then ask to frame it differently / completely change it…if we’re generous then maybe this is responsible for some of this
McKinsey did a phenomenal job with the transition phase and documentation
it all depends on the reason for the transition. If the project was in shambles, whatever you get is going to be a mess. If it was a planned implementation transition, you’re likely to get decent stuff.
Most of my career has been in the tech space and I've been on both the client side and consulting side.
Tech related deliverables from 30k ft view tech strat down to implementations have been consistently terrible for MBB. ACN and D deliverables for the same seem to either be excellent, ho-hum, or terrible with no in-between. PwC and EY (I've never worked with any KPMG deliverables) deliverables have more up and down than ACN and D, but still tend to be above average overall.
The worst was a no-name boutique that my predecessor hired for a modernization strategy at my industry firm. Shockingly out of touch and laughably off base about just about everything, and by all accounts my predecessor was quite pleased with that ~$1M flaming bag of dog doo.
Deloitte has the best deliverables coz I am the one making them usually 😂
