There's a BA in my team, I've been away for an year or longer for a different project. Got transitioned to different project in which she is also aligned. No how I've been doing stuff. Cut to chase..
One of my coworkers is a great guy, but way too religious. I was stressed about project deadlines and he told to me to stop worrying and trust God to handle it. I forgot my meds at home and he claims God would cure my disorder like God magically cured his HIV. Some coworkers got annoyed when his answer to everything is God and told him off. He got offended and told me God told him to find a new job that’s less toxic. I could go on, but I’m sure we all experienced someone this dense.
Working Sunday night and about to lose it... worked 80 hours this week and am getting nothing but nitpicky feedback from both manager and the client on this project about things I can’t change.
For people in consulting - do you often read books about project management and motivation? Would appreciate your recommendations (preferably the ones with more than one thought for the whole brick of text 🤨).

TFW you are making a deck on the client’s template, and they have an obnoxiously large logo in the footer, cutting usable space by a solid 10%, excluding the slide title area
Looking for advice...I'm not a manager yet but have been essentially managing an analyst on my current project because the PM is double booked and too busy to lead (which is fine, I've been doing this for a while for promo prep). The analyst is nice enough but needs WAY too much handholding on everything and I find it hard to do my own work while walking her through her own.
Any advice on how to encourage her to take initiative and try before asking me for the answer?
Do HRs in consultancies call me because I truly have some attraction in my resume or They want to achieve their targets to their Client companies??
Anyone fool around at the client site?
My manager and practice lead basically lied to me so I would do another engagement with the same client when I had clearly told them I wanted to change industry / client. Given that this made me super unhappy, I quietly started to synch up with another team in a different country to initiate a transfer (different industry / service line) and am in advanced stages of discussion with them. I also have an external opportunity in industry.
When should I tell my current team I’m planning to leave?
How do you fellow writers deal with a domineering creative partner? I’m in a weird position, working with an AD who tends to shoot down my ideas, and aggressively pushes “his” in client meetings. In all my previous partnerships, all ideas were considered “ours”. Adding to the imbalance, this person is actually an ACD, and the CD is out on leave. Usually CD would reign this person in. So at the moment, this partner actually does have all the power in the formal sense. Is there anything I can do?
I am on client site right now. I don't have any work to do as of now, but do I continue to bill them?
Are project briefs still a thing? Lately I’ve just been getting thrown into the fire with no project brief and it’s frustrating because it really does impact the work that I do. Like help me help you😫
I’ve been interviewing at one place for over a month now. First a call with their recruiter, then a meeting with their ECD. Then a meeting with the team, then one with the client last week.
On a project (m, & I’m very lost and don’t feel like I’m adding too much value. To me it is obvious, the director seems to be more optimistic and appreciates my contributions...even though she repeatedly asks for me to speak up & lead more meetings. I don’t think the client sees it that way, and I personally struggle too much with the content to confidently lead sessions. I’m really worried things will eventually blow up. Other team members outside of the SME Director feel the same way, but...

Tips for a consultant interviewing for corporate strategy roles? What types of questions to prepare for, how to package project experience, etc.?
I'm thinking of turning down a client side gig solely based on a gut feeling. I can't pinpoint why I shouldn't take it. It's a huge opportunity. Anyone trust their gut over their head before? Regrets?
Hi, anyone care to share some tips and tricks for presenting over Meet? I'll be taking a client through a case study. It's hosted on a site but I don't want to do the usual scroll through a site or pdf while talking. I'm thinking of standing a ways from the camera and projecting the work on the wall behind me. Big mistake?

How do you deal with back pain? I tried all things that could potentially help like getting lumbar support, ergonomic pillow, stretching steadily throughout the day etc. I'm seriously concerned if it will be what blocks me from moving forward in my career. Typical hours ranging 60 to 70 and i know my back will only keep getting worse during WFH and it's out of control. TIA.
