When building your resume, as a big 4 M, what’s the best way to describe ‘an action I took that led to the success of the project / specific result’? I suppose managing people on the project isn’t specific enough. What’s a specific, banger of a pointer in your view from an MBB resume screen perspective?

Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.
