I work at an in house creative dpt. Recently, a major project was outsourced to a creative agency. We were reassured outsourcing was a one-off, and future work will be kept in house. Yesterday, we were told that yet another major strategic and creative campaign is being briefed in to the other agency...again. This comes with news of a future restructure and Q's from my boss to my co-CD and I asking what we think our roles in the team are. Should we be worried?

I’m in our consulting arm. And I just got placed on a project that wants me to travel onsite for a discovery workshop 2 weeks from now. It’s making me incredibly nervous because I’ve never had to travel for work before! I’ve always been on local projects in past consulting jobs and my most recent job was in industry, where it was in the same city as me. I feel so nervous, having to fly alone, and be in a new city alone, which I’ve also never done. In addition, having to engage with clients..cont

I am graduating with an MS Cybersecurity this June and have been working as a Project Analyst for 5 years. I am in the process of applying to consulting firms (both big and boutique).

Project Manager for a small consulting startup that isnt going anywhere. Best way to transition to a bigger firm? Long story short, I was hired by a startup right before they launched last year. Leadership has since become aloof and unresponsive, and I'm looking to make a move to a more established firm. What would be the best way to go about such a transition? I'm in the NYC area, and targeting something at the associate consultant level.

How do you handle peers asking you to send over successful work (financial models or slides you have worked ages on) so they can ‘use the structure’. Also known as getting all the praise without giving any credit. In my team sharing is caring, but in the end your peers are also your competitors in a way. Furthermore its just pissing me off as I like to learn new things and figure stuff out myself. Any advice?

My SM told me that I have to be conscious of racial diversity when selecting a candidate for my project team. It seemed like they were very very careful with their language. Does this mean I have to pick a URM? My project is already majority URM, so wouldn’t adding another URM make it less racially diverse?


Recently moved to a new company and I’m so incredibly intellectually bored on my project…not sure what to do. It’s a lot more development and delivery focused than I thought it’d be. I also just realized how long it’s been since I’ve formatted Word documents. 🤣 I hate this feeling-so tired and bored during the day & am now stretching my work into multiple days because a) I’m way ahead of the deadlines & b) I’m avoiding simple tasks because they’re so boring. Anyone ever been there? Any advice?
