Project leadership is forcing me to stay staffed on a project that I’ve expressed interest in leaving after being on it for nearly 1.5 years. I feel so trapped that I’m interviewing externally because I’m so bored and they won’t give me a chance to find something new. Project leadership has a history of not letting Cs leave. Has anyone else been in this position and quit entirely because of it? I’m even up for promotion this year to SC but don’t think it’s worth sticking around 😔

Looking for some advice... I am up for promotion to senior consultant for end of year (most likely won’t find out results for a while). Do I have a shot at applying to a senior con level position at another firm before I *hopefully* get the promo?

What shall I do: the senior consultant I am working with is extremely condescending and borderline rude in the way he communicates with me (granted he is very qualified, but still rude e.g. he laughed at my input in a KOL interview...during the interview). It has been ongoing for ~3 weeks now and is seriously affecting my motivation on this engagements and hence, the quality of my output. Any tips on how to handle/proceed with this?

Considering going into consulting in BAH for IR. Friend said best they can probably do is SC with no consulting experience unless they like me during the interview process. Any other consulting companies i should take a look into for IR? 2 YoE, 2 SANS certs and 1 more on the way. 100k TC west coast.

Anyone every switched firms right after getting a promo? I’m thinking about this as a potential strategy to jump two levels in a short time. For example, if I get the promo to senior consultant next year, what’s stopping me from applying to manager roles at other firms 2-3 months after this promo?

So I’m a second year consultant. Like most, I was disappointed with compensation this year and am pretty bearish on my future earning potential here. I’m currently interviewing with a big tech company (not FAANG but close) for a position with substantially higher pay as a business analyst. I really wanted to stay til SC/M but the money is too good to pass up. I guess my question is: are there any major downsides to exiting to industry “too early?” Has anyone done it and regretted it?

For those who interview what do y’all look for in your interviewees? I feel like when I ever interview for a technical role they’re looking for skills and experience first. But when I interview for a S&O/ functional role they’re looking for more fit, personality, and culture? Though i’m just at the SC level I’m probably wrong.
