Bros of Fishbowl - On a typical week on a travel project, how many dress pants do you bring? Trying to give an average number to my team.
So what comes on TV on Thursday nights? Usually I'm flying home and missing whatever is on, but stuck in client city until tomorrow this week
I have a ton of data on my (home) laptop I’m working with for a personal project and I would like to move it to a cloud environment. I tried setting up an AWS redshift instance. Spent most of Thursday
How do I sell work to my ex client? Client loved me, extended me 3 times before the lay off in October. Two consultants (10+ exp) also want to join me if I can pull it off.
TFW your client is ogling you like a piece of meat during presentations. I'm a guy and it still gets awkward. Can't imagine what some of the ladies go through.
How are testing projects in Wipro. I reached out to one of the Wipro employee in LinkedIn and he said that he is facing Hell. More than 9.5 hours/day and also work at weekends. Is this true to all wipro employees or it depends on the project? Wipro Accenture Tata Consultancy Infosys HCL Technologies
When you win work from a new client and take over from their incumbent vendors (who are now threatened by your presence), what has your experience been like when it comes to knowledge transfer?
First project and I haven't nor will I have to ever make a deck on it. Am I in for a rude awakening?
I love the smell of client value creation in the morning. It's an interesting mix of analyst sweat and tears.
What is the best thing to do when project has unrealistic expectations (way too much work)? Work/life balance considerations aside(there is none), main concern is lowered work quality.
Operating models interest me. Any good resources to learn more about designing one? Moving to Deloitte strategy as an experienced hire and would love to jump on a related project if possible.
New high score: 2-3AM client call. 😑🔫
Can’t tell if depressed from life being in shambles or project being a miserable endless hell 🤔
Deloitte: you’re getting promoted to manager!
*a few moments later*
Deloitte: ... and this is your 5th project. It’s 4 months behind schedule, and everyone is very upset about it. You will be yelled at from 1-4:30 EST daily, so please dress accordingly.
2 years with uncle D in Fed consulting, didn't get promoted to SC, currently project lead and managing one other consultant. Beltway shuffle or ride it out?
I was working at digital marketing agencies for four years and I recently went to the client side. I’m two months into my new job and I’ve learned so much about what a stable job is like. My hours are 9-5, no more no less: I don’t have calls filling up every open space on my calendar. No more immediate client requests or weekly reports where I get dumped on regardless of performance. No panicking bosses holding you at the office against your will. That being said, I’m stunting my career.
My project ends in June 2021 and I straight up don’t think I’m going to see my team ever again
TFW your the partner tells the client "your processes suck right now, let my team help you". #cringeanddie
My team has hit rock bottom. We have to draft emails on behalf of our client because they "don't have time to write emails." OMG 😒
My life is pretty well summed up by my phone's top apps: Fishbowl, Tinder, Facebook, Messages
Remember if you're ever feeling dumb, people actually donated 4,000,000 so Jill Stein can confirm Trump won. Where do these idiots come from?
Since it's not PC to talk about such things in the office -- what are your religious views or lack thereof?
Starting the "about to pop the question and be a SC (3rd rank / 5th year)" phase of my life. What advice do you wish you had done / not done when you were there?
Pre-apology if this is a repeative question. Would you rather work for Deliotte Human Capital or KPMG People & Org practice in a management role? Is so, why? Thanks and enjoy the weekend!
A fitness app you swear by?
Beginner here without a set routine - Looking for one that’s engaging and helps me mix things up!
Note - looking to get fit not bulk up.
What are your go to snacks during busy season?
I am pretty sure one of my direct reports is a psychopath. I have no idea how to manage them.
Fresh out of UG trying to get my finances in order for the first time. I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by it all (setting a budget, investing, etc.) Seeking advice, details below.
Hey my hotstar subscription won’t recognize that I’m subscribed when I login from my iPad. It keeps saying “cannot connect to iTunes server” which isn’t really the deal. How do I fix it?
To those MID-PROCESS in INTERVIEWS. How much longer are you allowing for responses given the current climate? Just finished 3rd round, went well but want to be fair.
Don’t watch Flu on Netflix it’s just too much right now. My hubby puts it on and then falls asleep. Now I’m stuck watching this sad ish. Lol

Have yall ever done projects outside of your service line or industry? I'm wondering if it's beneficial for me to do something like that in the long term. My area is Pharma but I've been presented with another opportunity outside of my service line in Public Sector. It sounds like I would get great skills out of the project, as it involves strategic planning and that is not an area I have experience in.
IPOD about to announce? What do you think? https://twitter.com/chamath/status/1341213353532923905?s=21
Trump has been banned from Twitter🤣🤣
