On hold for a project that seems like it's never going to start. Torched my already not great utilization
New to B4 consulting but how bad is it to roll off a project earlier than your end date? Would my RM even allow it? Just trying to understand how much independence I really have and also just the culture of staffing

What’s the weirdest (SFW) thing huge done while on a WFH conference call so far? I just cut my toenails while listening to a client talk for 30 minutes.
Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”
Long stretch - my educational background is Business Psych at PSU and social psych program at Yale - I’m an analyst with a background in brand strategy and project support. I am really into marketing archetypes, brand reputations, psychology of experiences. I’m analytical but also creative and a huge people person. Anyone out there like me who’s found their calling? People tell me sales, UX design, etc
Gave my 2 weeks on Friday and project leadership asked me to write the proposal for our 2018 extension. First off- why? Im literally the worst person to do that at this point; Secondly- SO UNMOTIVATED

How is everyone organizing Jira? A project for each product or offering within a product or just a single backlog. The startup I work at have one backlog set up for the product but I find things get lost. The engineering team then have their own Jira projects where items from the product backlog get moved into it, refined, broken down into smaller tickets, and then scheduled into sprints. I can’t help but think this is hard to manage.
Anyone currently a S&O lead at Google? Sounds like there’s a lot of PM (as in Project Mngm) involved. Pay and brand is great but don’t wanna get stuck in doing mostly PM and not real strategy work

How do you deal with work-related thoughts on weekends? Used to be able to shut work off at night and Friday afternoon. Lately I’ve been dreaming about detailed stuff from current project.
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.
My one month old baby has been extremely fast and has reflux, due to which she is not able to sleep lying straight in her crib. She just wants to sleep clinging to my chest in upright position. Any suggestions on how to make baby sleep well, and get some sleep for myself as well?

Lesson plans. What do yours look like? I feel like it’s a waste of time to rewrite what I’m doing from the actual lessons. I mean aren’t the learning targets, success criteria, and formative and summarize assessments built right in?
