Cut from a project, covid19 impact. If you need experience, pm, diverse industry, technical and business.
I got rolled off my first project bc the client wanted someone with more experience. Now I’m on a project backfilling someone who’s about to roll off his current project (he can’t start the project
Project might be changing to travel every other week. Super unproductive and stir crazy when I work from home.
Freelance creatives: any CD ever (officially unofficially) ask you to reduce your hours by 15 bc the other freelance writer on the project billed for that much less over several weeks. Would you...
Taking on my first freelance side hustle project, and it’s pretty big. Now I’m stressing logistics. Start an LLC? Filing taxes? Do I need a separate bank account? I’d appreciate any tips/resources!
As an analyst* I have to do the printing. I'm gonna tape the top of each paper of the reportout to the bottom of the page before it so the client has to unroll it like a scroll. *glorified secretary
Anyone have any Monthly Progress report Templates? Something that is outlining the current status of the project(s). Looking for schedule progress, budget/cost tracker update, major issue resolution updates etc
So how did my client opened the week you’re asking? By telling the entire team (mainly consultants) that when the company stock was bottoming a couple of weeks ago they were looking to get out
Would you quit a company before you secure an offer? Is it too risky? Assuming you hate the current project so much.

Going to tell Leadership this week that I want to be rolled off. Another project has requested me and that project is better aligned to my career. Any advice to have a smooth conversation?
As we discussed the Easter Bunny’s visit, I realized his back story is ready for innovation, and as a consultant, I’d really like to take that project on.
Hello 🐠, I have been on a project that I do not like, has absolutely obliterated my work life balance, and put me under a lot of stress. Not to say this doesn’t happen a lot in our job, but I have an opportunity to go back to an old client that I loved. My current project leadership knows the date I’m set to roll off, but have been hinting they won’t let me leave because I’m good at my job. I am so desperate to leave and have been advised by multiple colleagues to do so. What do I do??
Best consulting terms that aren't actually a real word, used in a sentence. "We should robustify the project plan and executize our messaging."
Anyone ever used an employment offer from a client you’re currently on to renegotiate salary or not worth the effort?
We are here to guide clients: but this is not always the case when your client believes they are the target audience for their product. How do you convince them that they are not and trust the agency?
Just wanted to start off the day by saying - I work with almost only women on my project, and I love every single one of them. They are the most supportive, kind, brilliant, and encouraging individuals and I feel so blessed and lucky to be working with them. Who you have in your team seriously makes it or breaks it, and I appreciate that I can work with amazing top notch women like them. Really appreciating my fellow ladies out there!! 💕
How is 72andSunny for non-white folks? I know they had a client-imposed diversity initiative following the General Mills win. Has it helped?
So I’m a senior 1 and my staff 2 has a big head. He can pretty much get away with saying or doing anything bc he’s been on the client the longest and thinks he’s indispensable. How to handle

I'm sorry to hear the news about layoffs. If you haven't been affected, I hope it stays that way. Otherwise, good luck on your exit process and job hunt fellas. It's not an easy job.

Just started looking for another job after being with my commercial for 6 years. I’m encountering more and more recruiters pushing the salary expectations question at the recruiter interview. Basically won’t move forward in the process if you don’t give a number or the right number (usually low). Anyone else experiencing this?
Companies need to not dilute diversity with this whole diversity of thought jibberish - there are real issues re: bias, race, gender and respect in the workplace. Education around how to build better
I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
