I’m thinking back two years ago, when I had a very active GSA. We got started too late to do anything for the Homecoming parade, and I jokingly suggested that we just walk with a sign and throw glitter. The president was all about it until he looked at glitter prices.

Any stories from your GSA?

PO of 2 years, switched to a new line of business 6m ago. Love the clients, love my team but I’m starting to despise my PM. They were promoted from PO & it has been an off and on struggle for the last year.

The PM refuses to invite me to meetings with stakeholders/withholds information, micromanages my work & throws in injects without discussing them, doesn’t define features but says they’re ready for dev.

I talked to the PM about the communication breakdown, no luck.

Any advice?

Told a friend of mine in tech I was considering moving to BCG. He asked me if I would have to move to Boston.

I followed up by asking what he thought the top consulting firms were. "I'd guess PwC and then McKinsey are the best. I've also heard of KPMG, Deloitte, and Bain, but I don't know much about them."

Just a reminder that outside our bubble no-one really cares about firm prestige etc.
