I’m a healthcare consultant. Reading the state vaccine process, it says you can use an employee badge, which I have from my client, as proof of being a healthcare worker. Will the hospital giving vaccines cross-check with my client that I am an active employee? Bad idea? I’m looking for ways to get the vaccine quicker.
Nice way to tell your client and her marketing team that they all schedules too many meetings and your teams can't get their god damn work done.
What is director round in PWC ? Is this technical round or Project related questions only ? Help please
How do companies usually get over (get used to) transitioning from home grown systems to cloud-native and SaaS solutions? Losing control of systems and ongoing cost (licensing cost can go up anytime) seems to be major mental blockers for my client
Boutique consulting firm vs Big 4, thinking of making the switch to get more structured support and learning... any thoughts? Attrition is rlly high at my firm and project deadlines have been delayed due to resource issues
What’s the difference in severity between messing up enough to get rolled off a project and enough to be put on a performance improvement plan?
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
I’ve got a crush on an SC not on my project. He’s objectively more attractive but I’m getting vibes he might be interested. How do I send the signal I want him to ask me out?
What kind of hours are you putting in on your current project? What's the industry? (E.g. Tech, in at 7:30AM, leave at 7PM, back online at 10PM)
Favorite pop punk hit from childhood that you blast through your earbuds while you brood silently about the client pissing you off
🐠 that kicked ass in a PMO role, question for you: any tips or micro habits that worked for you in terms of meeting firm & client expectations? Know its a loose term and is project specific but just want to know what skills I should hone.

New client worksite added to my H1B extension petition so it wont qualify for PP? Anyone in the same boat? Does anyone know the current processing times for regular processing ?
Just got off a two hour workshop with a client and was too scared to say anything and speak up even though I probably had good points. How do you get over the fear of being wrong or sounding stupid? I feel like I let my team down.
*Sigh*. Another day, another account person who thinks that retained projects = free projects for the client (and that fee estimates don’t need to be approved/tracked internally). 🤯
Joined consulting to get varied experience, but I keep getting extended at client but on different projects. Client is great and projects are cool, but I’d never wanna live on this coast—
Should I️ take a project in center city philly at a client I’m not really interested in? Or a project in middle of no where NJ with work that sort of interests me?
Client asks us to design a poster for an IMAX movie that features how blockbuster movies are made. One of the key features in the movie is King Kong so we featured it prominently on the poster as well. Client asks seriously whether we need to be concerned about offending an African American audience. I shit you not! Arguably my most jaw dropping moment in this business.
Looking for advice/validation. Currently have about 10 credit cards (yes really!) About half are airline cards that I signed up for for the miles, quicker boarding, and free bags- but they carry a $100 annual fee. Other half are random no-fee cards (BoA, Amazon chase, capital one venture, west elm). My thought is to cancel the ones w an annual fee (just bought a house so no immediate need for higher credit limit). Does this make sense?
Re lateral hiring: who can you expect to conduct an initial screener for amlaw50 firm? Secured an initial interview and just waiting for more details. Fingers crossed!
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.
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.

I’m 11 wks pregnant and started this new project right as I got pregnant- it’s been such a tough project and I’m not able to keep up. I’m not sure what to do - I’ve totally fallen behind and am not sure how I’m going to be able to proceed. I need something slower paced. Do I tell them I’m pregnant or do I just keep trying to do my best. 😞
How often do companies drug test as part of background check? Thinking specifically about marijuana and live in MA where recreational is legal. Have to imagine companies would be more lax here, right?
In terms of total comp, who do you think makes more: an EP at an agency or a mid level producer at a FAANG company?

Hello, anyone from Akamai technologies, Bangalore?? Need some info on the employee benefits (covid benefits). Thank you.
Declined a job offer with 18% raise a few weeks ago because I wasn’t ready to move companies. Starting to regret it but took a risk hoping I’ll love my next project. How will I know if I made the right decision?

Don’t get a rental at Budget. Dropped my rental off at airport; Accidentally left wallet in car - came back < 20 mins; took 2 hours to find car with my wallet; all my cash stolen and flight missed.
Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.
In my district, teachers are still mandated to come to work even though several of their students have tested positive for COVID-19.
United direct flight from Newark to Delhi in May. Does anyone have experience flying this (or from DEL to EWR) recently? It‘s direct online but I’ve heard it connects because of airspace restrictions.
After being on terrible projects back to back to back, I get why we focus so much on points and status as consultants. One of the few consistent perks here.
