Takeaway - work needs to be in the medium busy lane. The center lane...


What can I say

! This really has me rethinking if I’m truly built Ford tough for consulting. It was cool and fun when I was in my mid 20s and got to travel all the time. Now I’m bored in the house and I’m in the house bored and I’m over undue stress in my life.

So relatable

Ain't that the truth

Well put. Can totally relate.

Big 4 Advisory: how many of you feel like your work is really just staff augmentation?


Hi all - could use a little crowdsourced help with an admittedly unusual request. Last year, I did a two month working retreat south mid-jan through mid-March. Would like to do it again, but I am looking for a place with a basketball court (key), pool (key), and ideally near the ocean (nice). Trying to stay at 3-5k per month. Been googling, but does anyone know of anything offhand? Hotel or AirBnB is fine, leaning SoCal or FL, but open to suggestions.


What would be the first place you want to visit once we are allowed and it’s safe to travel? For me - it’s Spain, I can’t wait to go back!


Would you rather be homeless or in jail?


So I'm stuck on making a decision. I've been applying to jobs because I felt underpaid at the Associate Manager level (L8) at Accenture. I got an offer yesterday from a well known tech company for $27k more plus $8k sign on. Other benefits are pretty good too compared to Accenture. 2 things stopping me; 1) i love my team and feel super sad/guilty to leave them 2) the postion is a senior position, not manger so i'd have to work my way up 1 lvl again. As John Quiñones would say, what would you do?


Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?

Seriously what is the time policy at Deloitte?! They tell you to book what you work - then you get on a project where your manager tells you in not so many words to book what the projects budgeted for
