Dealing with Challenging Clients

1. The Creeping (Scope Creep) Client
The creeping attack is characterized by an initial agreement to implement a set of agreed upon features by a series of repeated requests for new functionality and additions that were never discussed.

2. The Low Ball Client
The single minded focus on the price of the project right from the beginning.

3. The Octopus Client
This is characterized by micromanagement. The many hands of the octopus reach in and try to control every aspect of the project, effectively overriding your judgements and experience.

4. Attack of Urgency Client
It is characterized by a series of blindingly fast requests that you are expected to deal with at a moments notice.

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

5. Hands On Hands Off Client
This consists of the client doing or saying very little if anything at all. With no feedback to go by, good or bad, the freelancer is more less left to make best guess and hope it sticks.

6. Golden Peacock Client
This client essentially dazzle you with “you should be lucky to work for this client or company for this project ABC” so you work for next to nothing for the glory of working on the project in the first place.

7. The Extortionist Client
It is one that you don’t ever want to deal with. Essentially, this client uses money to control you and don’t pay services on time.

8. Crouching Tiger Client
Essentially the client baits the freelancer with the promise of future riches and success if they are willing to take a hit now and wait and give the client the sale of the century on this project.

9. The Dream Client
They are rare but they do exist. They pay on time, express appreciation for your work, treat you with respect and they have realistic expectations and timelines.

Reasons I Like My Job

It has been a little while since my last blog. I have been busy this summer with the acquisition of a new member of our family – a 7 weeks-old White Westie. I have been most of the summer taking him to the park, riding the bike to the local beach or lake in his mini doggie ride. On top of that, I have been busy with client projects and meetings.

With my job, I work as a consultant for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. So what makes this job special?

Experiences

As a consultant, I get the chance to work with many clients and projects. With each opportunity, I learn a new perspective and approach that has been taken to building various clinical databases that support clinical trials. There have been a number of occasions where problems between clients are similar and this similarity allows me to bring those experiences to the next client.

Challenge

My clients don’t often bring me in for the small and easy stuff. For that, their staff usually has the capacity to handle their needs. The time to turn to consultants is when the timelines or technical depth of the project requires outside help. Because of this, I often find myself on engagements that are relatively challenging. I can really take lessons from one client and apply them to all others.

I get exposed to things I already have ‘expertise’ in and I also get exposed to things I only know academically. I get to learn!

Mentoring

I love teaching. Being a consultant provides an excellent opportunity to do this. I have been working with a lot of clients in a mentoring relationship. Sometimes in person, sometimes via webex.
I like to think I made a difference for each and one of my employers/clients I have worked for.

Freedom

One bonus of working in the Pharmaceutical industry has been the ability to exercise a lot of freedom in choosing where to move my career. As my skills and interests have changed through the years, so too have my responsibilities and assignments.
So life has been busier in some ways but it has been more flexible.

I have had more scheduled flexibility than I ever had.

So until my next post, tell me why do you like your job?
