My coworker, who was my friend for a long time, has been lying to me, throwing me under the bus, and taking credit for my work and ideas. I have done more and worked harder than him but he was promoted. He failed a new client big time and I was asked to step in and save the relationship which I did in a big way. Why do I have to work so hard every day while he gets away with scraping by and plagiarizing? How do you deal with a coworker like that?
I’m going to quit in 2022. Posting here to hold myself to it. I was asked to work on a discrete project that shouldn’t take more than 4-5 hours which has now turned into me having to join a call with the client at 9 am the morning after thanksgiving.
Been on the bench nearly a month doing internal work because project I'm reserved for keeps getting pushed. How do I get out of this and get on something chargeable?
I’ve always been curious. Is there a reason Accenture is publicly traded company and other consulting firms arent? consulting is client service and wouldnt need CAPEX spending or anything so what is their rationale for wanting to raise public capital?

Back to back calls every day, unrelenting context switching at 30 minute intervals. At any given moment my only goal is to just make it through my next meeting / client call / orals. That's it. I'm literally existing in pure survival mode day after day. Anyone else in this special kind of Hell? Anyone successfully pull themselves out?
Partners: what are your best practices for building a client relationship from scratch? Ex: your friend/acquaintance/ex-colleague is at a target client. How do you make the turn from catch up 2 sales?
What do you do with a low performing peer who doesn't take feedback well. It's affecting client deliverables. Already brought up to leadership. There hasn't been much movement due to a small bench.
Any one who joined IBM recently. Please share your experience for the first 2 weeks. How it went? I also joined joined 1 week before. Today I got mail like I have been taaged to 1 project? What could I expect next?
In the process of being promoted @B4 but I don’t like the people I work for and I’m on the project from hell. The promo has taken so long that I’ve looked elsewhere despite it being my 2nd promo in 3 years. I haven’t had much traction until this past week where I was approached by 4 recruiters with really compelling roles (including FAANG). I know it doesn’t hurt to talk to them but am I an ass for excepting the promo while continuing to look/possibly exiting in the near future?

All I want for christmas is client value creation!
I feel completely lost at work. I started at a new company 1 month ago and got put on a client that’s just as confused as I am. I’m only associate level (with a little experience from my last firm) but I feel like I’m “in charge” of this audit. I feel like nothing on the audit has been done and I’m soooo nervous for manager review. Wtf do I do?! I’m so overwhelmed.

Best tech strat/planning departments? (or creative agency unicorns that have solid pay and balance?) I can’t take it anymore — horribly underpaid and overworked, sick of the holding company bullshit, mental health is suffering. I don’t want to give up on strategy but I can’t keep waiting around for my company (and the agency world) to change. Where do I go ?
I teach PreK in a public school. Our state allows PreK programs to nap without masks if proper ventilation is provided. I have 16 children, a minimum of 3 feet apart, no masks, with two LOUD air filters, two tiny windows open, the outside and hall door open, at average in 72-76 degrees. What is your childcare classroom doing for rest time?

I wanted to get your opinions on an offer I’m going to receive from EY working in their climate change practice as senior consultant. My background: working in EHS for 6.5 years, currently in insurance as a consultant. Current salary: 90k and standard benefits including 401k and company car (used for personal travel also). EY offer: 95k plus 10k signing bonus as senior 1 consultant. I told the recruiter that I make a similar salary and other benefits and that I want higher offer. Thoughts?
Taking a side trip from San Diego (work trip) to Palm Springs in mid January by myself. I guess I’ll rent a car and drive there. I’d like to do a day trip to Joshua Tree. Should I stay in downtown Palm Springs? An outlying resort? Any other day trips? Female solo traveler. Also debated flying from SD to Santa Barbara instead of Palm Springs. Just want to be outside and enjoy good food, wine, scenery, hiking, relaxation.

Currently at B4 with 4 YOE (2 industry & 2 consulting). Interviewing for a Senior Knowledge Analyst at MBB. I enjoy consulting and would like to stay in the traditional consulting track to partner, at least for now. Is it possible to transition into the traditional track from the knowledge track once at MBB?
MBB associate with undergrad degree in economics. Loved the degree, though didn’t do much with it outside of class (spent summers on internships, didn’t write a thesis). If I want to do something related to economics, how can I best leverage my current background to do so? Would MS in Econ make more sense than an mba? Maybe MS in stats or data science? Does the MBB background help in any way?
In lot of reviews reading that, good growth is not possible without network. Or getting good project also network driven. Wanted to understand what exactly is meant by network? What a bew joiber is supposed to do when he/she joins in D USI.
COVID led me to leave a T2 consulting firm with only six months on paper to show. Really been having trouble figuring out what I can pitch myself for. (Pre-MBA background is hospitality, eek!) Ideas?
Does anyone know what the 2021 401K and IRA contributions limit are? Currently trying to figure out benefit contributions
