In accenture countdown site. I can see project as '' bench-state''.. What does it means??
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
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)
Imagine, instead of Meet the Parents, a movie called Meet the Partners where an analyst anxiously waits in an introductory zoom call with the project partner only to receive a “pls reschedule” an hour later. What’s your best consulting spin-off of a movie?
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.

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?
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?
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?

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?
What do firms actually look at when evaluating people for partnership? I feel like the majority of partners in my section lack organization, leadership ability, management skills, or even good client management skills. It seems more like they were just the ones that stuck around and kept billing a ton. Is this the norm?
My manager wants me to watch 40+ hours of recorded client called to catch up on a work stream that I was never intended to be a part of but now am getting pulled into? Is there any polite way to push back or request another way to learn? I won’t learn anything from 40 recording sessions and makes me so upset because i hâte the content of what I’m doing on this project. It’s an IT implem project

Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…
I currently work in a hybrid sales/marketing role. However, I would love more experience in marketing specifically so I can move in to a marketing specific role. Does anyone have a suggestion of books or articles, podcasts, organizations to follow that will allow me to stay up to date on the latest trends but also help prepare for a marketing centric role? Thank you
Strategy& vs PWC perks: are there any differences? Specifically for things like expense amounts, ability to book biz class tickets, gym memberships, airport lounge access, cell phone stipends, etc.
Attempting to renter the workforce after a 2 year hiatus due to health issues followed by the pandemic. During this time off I had minor success running a small business, but not enough to pay the bills. I have 3 YOE, 1.5 as a Loan Officer, and 1.5 as a consultant within compliance and Fintech. Please let me know of any fully remote positions, or hybrid positions based out of Chicago or Milwaukee. I live in Dubuque IA, so for in office work it would have to be in Dubuque. TIA!
Should I only include my relevant internships or all of them if applying for roles at 2 YOE. If not including relevant ones will be it weird if there’s a 1-3 year gap between internships/work experience?
