I was recently laid off as a first year analyst. Looking for new consulting opportunities, but currently in a limbo stage of my career where I'm not an entry level campus hire, but also don't have 2-3+ years of experience to be considered an experienced hire. Open roles I've seen at various consulting companies have business analyst/entry level positions for 2021 graduates only...any advice/insights on how I should approach this stage of my career or companies hiring non campus, entry level roles?

When consulting firms do layoffs, is it across all levels? For example 20% at each level Analyst, consultants, managers, and partners? Or do they lay-off by high costs aka management?

My org mentioned told us that there will be no raises or promotions this year but we will still have bonuses. I worked my ass off to get promoted and am at the top of the list of candidates. My morale is so low as is my desire to do work. I know if should be grateful to have a job but at this point, I just want to get fired and be put out of my misery. I was on final interviews with Big4 precovid and I am hating the idea to be an analyst for another year. I don’t know how to cope.

I am in a weird position and need pieces of advice. I was staffed in a project that I hate and on top on that, found out that an ex manager of mine will be in the team as well. The person was fired from the manager’s job and is currently an analyst like me. I had to quit that first job bcs of his abuse and complained to HR about him. I’ m having very bad anxiety issues out of this whole situation. Spoke to leadership about rolling off the project due to lack of interest but they wouldn’t let me
