You're LA EY? What time are you staying until

Worked until 3am on the client site on Saturday morning this week... Client was also there until 1 am....

You're an idiot.

But why

Definitely can happen especially in certain types of consulting. Best of luck.

Project closing out. Have to submit integration plan. Kill me haha

We did a huge deployment two years ago during Labor Day weekend- took us whole 3 days due to massive data migration. It was no fun!

They only expect this behavior to take place because you guys are saying yes to it. If everyone said no the culture would shift and you would not have to work these shameful hours!!! 🤔

Lmao or uhhh other outcome: get my ass fired a2 😂😂

I keep reading all these posts about firms laying off a ton of people. Can someone explain what happens after one gets laid off? Like do they just fire you and that's it? What happens to the pay? Etc.

An associate and I were performing an annual review of the vendor. The vendor rep happened to be a director level and wasn’t familiar with our process. He said a redacted pentest report wasn’t needed to prove that his company is secure. At the same time, he didn’t give us any additional info as a form of compensating control either. After escalating to management, he went on a call and said we were very hostile and unprofessional (while everyone had access to email chain and it was courteous)

I have been trying to get a job a Google for years and regularly stalk their openings / who they end up hiring for the role to try to get relevant experience. I just looked and they hired a Starbucks barista for a role that I’ve applied to several time. Please excuse me while I scream and then immediately submit an application for a new part time job.
