14 Moments That Make It All Worthwhile

Through the long work days, time spent away from friends/family, crazy client meetings, and the 5 (or 25) pounds you may have put on, these moments make the consulting lifestyle all worth it.

  • Thursday afternoon drives to the airport
  • When you reconnect with onboarding friends at Cap Connects
  • When you get that “Great Job!” email
  • When you get the call from your RM about your next engagement
  • When the receptionists at the hotel start to recognize you
  • When you randomly get selected for the TSA pre-check
  • When you find that restaurant near your client site that becomes “your spot”
  • When you go on tax break or vacation for a few weeks and you get “We miss you!” emails
  • When your flight is mostly empty and you get the whole row to yourself
  • When you find out that your friend/past colleague is joining your project
  • When you finally remember the route from the airport to your client site
  • When your picture or event makes it to the front page of Talent (Capgemini intranet)
  • When you get that unexpected upgrade
  • The day your project finally goes live – Your project team couldn’t have done it without you  :)
