My client got F'ed over by one of their employees failing to disclose some things to the SEC I caught it brought it to the clients attention now I'm stuck doing diligence on over 100 employees. I keep catching things. I feel like I'm creating more issues for the clients but at the same time I'm protecting the firm as a whole which they're thankful for. Do I have anything to worry about by finding all these problems?

Which consulting firms would you recommend for working on IoT, Mobility and industry 4.0 type of client engagements?
What's your take on "fake/scam" award ads? I think they're fine as long as they solve a real business problem. Also a great way to do good work when you aren't blessed with a client like BK/Nike/...
When the client shows you pictures of her daughter, tries to set you up and starts calling you her son in law...
How seriously does Deloitte act on the HR complaint made against a SM who is extremely rude, abrasive, disrespectful to all his team members. Your inputs/experiences are highly appreciated. Deloitte
Should've noticed the lack of stains on the front. I've manage to run out for errand both Sat and Sun w my tshirt inside out. Jeesh. This project's gotta end soon. My weekend brain is dissolving.
My project is requiring a lot of time commitment during early hours and evening and it’s getting hard to pick up LO from day care. I wanted advise frm ppl who have hired help for pick/drop off.

My company expects me to work over 12 hours a day and I’m being asked to work the weekend constantly. Its making me extremely frustrated as I feel my labor is being exploited. Is it like this at other agencies? Has anyone made the switch to client side?
Deloitte folks, what is your year to date client billable hours ? Disclose your level as well please.
When you want to say "hell no" to a dud project but you can't because it'll reflect poorly on your 'initiative' rating 😪🤦♀️
Do you guys have any advice for a first Year Manager starting at a new firm? I am moving from a mid tier as a heavy senior to KPMG as a new manager. What are the things I should think about before the 1st day on the job? What makes a successful Manager? My thinking is technical expertise, client communication, and team management are the most important aspects of a successful manager.
Do you often have to relocate between client sites and other locations? Any tips on refocusing after you switch spots?

Director put me on a project and claimed this is my test to see if I'm ready for the next step? Ill be managing more junior staff. I wasn't promoted in the last cycle, so why the test now?
What web meeting platform are you using for client meetings? I’m currently using GoTo, but considering switching over to Zoom. (Got rid of Fuze years ago, it was crap)
Why do I feel so guilty about wanting to take another offer and leaving my team? I like my current teammates just HATE the client and project. I’ve also asked for a raise multiple times and have been told no. I’m underpaid but am up for promotion this year (June). I don’t think Deloitte can/willmatch. I want to take the money but I feel like I’m still learning leaderships skills and can see the potential for beefing out the management portion of my resume. What would you do? (Offer 50% more)
Hump day almost through, then flight home on Thursday evening! FTW I'm already done with this project !
Looking to relocate to the south-east U.S. to be nearer family. Anyone know of any good agencies/clients hiring senior roles at the moment or will be soon? Ideally one that's going hybrid at least. Fully remote also good, but would like to be in the SE so going to the office would be at least an option. And yes, I've looked at LinkedIn, Indeed, Google etc.

Further confirmation why Accenture Strategy sucks. Leadership just announced $4K “raise” for M and SM to “close gap” vs market pay. After lousy raise and bonus in Fall, this is a slap across the face!
I refuse to get my CISSP. I don't believe it's a valid certification to show competency in cyber security.
So I left B4 risk assurance because I found the work a drag and moved to a boutique place where I was hoping to get a better experience or shape my career the way I want. However, this place isn’t what I was expecting and the project I’m on requires deadly hours and is staff aug. I’m looking to do this for a year and go back to b4 (as I like being in a bubble) but a different service line. How possible is this?

Thoughts on EU ruling on Uber being a taxi firm > US impact? Sounds legit. Don't care much for their corporate culture, but care less for the high prices and poor service of regulated taxi firms
