Hi! I just finished 7 interviews (including a project) with a midsize startup at the end of last week. I just got an email from HR asking to set up 5-10 minutes to “chat”. The tone of the email was very neutral — should I assume this is a rejection with feedback?
The client doesn't do their easy task for 2 months- but the day after the client asks you for a massive, complex deliverable & it isn't final yet, they freak out. #doublestandards #goaway
Rolling off the client Friday, and all my work is inaccessible because my computer doesn’t want to boot up… The blue screen of death won’t go away. So I guess this is the part where I cry? 😤 😤 😰
So what’s the etiquette for posting out internally mid project due to “burn out” but I kinda just had a breakdown…..do I have to chat with my partner before I apply or connect with leaders outside of my LOB to have exploratory convos?
How do you bill texting with a client? Do you do a .1 for each message and response or block it by how long the conversation took total? So like if you texted for 30 mins, .5. Also yes it is v annoying to text with clients I already know that and am working on my boundaries speech for this particular one. Until then.. billing help plz.
I’m a project delivery specialist. What names can I use to represent myself on LinkedIn? Would senior consultant be reaching?
Started dating a director at my client (not on the project) decided to surprise her at her place with cup cakes & flowers on her birthday to find her wearing sexy lingerie waiting for someone else..
I'll be joining Deloitte USI soon and after seeing a lot of posts regarding Bad WLB, I'm afraid things may not age well for me!!! How much would you personally rate WLB in Deloitte USI on a scale of 10 0 being worse
Traditionally an Integrated Producer is one who manages production across all platforms for a client or clients. Is that not correct? Why do some job postings refer to integrated as if it is a PM? Why do some refer to it as a producer who manages site development and analytics? Can someone explain what exactly agencies are talking about these days when they say “Integrated Producer”?
PwC is hiring across multiple profiles. Do let me know if any of you are looking for a referral.
If you get an email from a client late at night, with no one else in CC and you weren't expecting it nor been in contact throughout the evening. Would you reply as a courtesy to confirm receipt, or wait until morning?
Question for creative/marketing leaders who go from big picture strategy to detailed project management: how do you switch between both throughout the day? I need time to think and get into a flow before strategy and once I'm out of the strategic mindset to PM, I find it difficult to get back into it, vice versa. How do I oscillate seamlessly between strategy and account management?
What’s the difference between pre/post sales roles? Pre sales I would assume knows the product well enough to convince a client to buy. Would post sales be the one implementing the product?
I had some MullenLowe agency partners stab me in the back when I was client side, and I get filled with rage whenever I see someone from there post on here
I have never done freelance work and was given the opportunity to take part in a cool project. My problem is it’s a proactive case by a brand new agency and it’s their own project, meaning there’s no client who pays for the work. For them it’s PR for their new business, but I think they’re expecting me to work completely pro bono. It does have potential for a great case and I’d love to have it in my portfolio, but is it reasonable for them not to compensate me? Any tips on how to approach this?
What do you do when you get client feedback that is essentially a script or body copy saying the exact same thing only much more ineloquently?
Hi Vteamers, I am going to join verizon in may. Any idea about sales and digital project? Verizon
Has anyone here worked for Mercer in a non-consultant/client-facing role, specifically in the Chicago office, and can share their experience (Did you like it? How was the work environment, etc)?
Anyone else move into consulting and miss more focused work? I feel like I’m not honing in on specific skills and my last couple project have been so chaotic. I’m tired and miss being an expert

What's the longest period of time you have had to wait to get credentialed before starting a new position?
Finally built up the courage to take full advantage of the beach by visiting the gf on a weekday. At 8:30pm I got an email saying be back for a project by 8:30am tomorrow. She lives 4 hours away...

I'm not a quitter but here's the truth. We can't help companies or people who don't want help, even if they hire us.
And the onslaught of email begins again...
My former PM actually told me he rolled off my team because I wouldn't reschedule my PTO. I had this PTO scheduled since June. Another person took 3 weeks of PTO and she was retained. Unethical?
