At Deloitte now. laid off last year while on medical leave. Landed a new job with the help of a senior mentor and vouched for me not knowing my medical limitations. I just had to take sick leave again on the first project out of the gate. Dr is recommending 40 hours a week which will not fit the requirements of my director role. I feel like I need to switch roles to a non client facing role to be realistic in my health limitations. How do I make the switch and have the convo with w my mentor?

I have 6 years professional working experience since I graduated college. Worked in consulting, advertising and tech. I feel like I know nothing deeply about anything to be a significant expert/leader at work. I haven’t been fired, so clearly something is working. Especially in consulting I feel like my job is trying to problem solve something new to me and BSing on the way. Will this feeling go away? Feel like I’m not junior enough to be naive/inexperienced or senior enough to be confident

Curious if anyone has dealt with this? I started a job in industry and took a senior role. I’m very used to a “there’s always a fire,” atmosphere, but since I started this job, I feel like I don’t have much to do and I have zero direction from my boss. Every one around me seems super busy and I’m worried I’m not producing enough, but he says I’m doing “fine.” Naturally my millennial anxiety has kicked in and I’m on the “you’re getting fired,” thought spectrum. Anyone else have this anxiety?

McKinsey paid 573M to settle charges about it's role in turbo charging the opioid crisis. Question for the consultants- does morality come into play when you make recommendations?

I am senior enough to put my foot down and get my way. How does it work in consulting?

Say you work at Accenture and are doing OK (haven't been laid off yet and have projects lined up). Also let's say that you have good skills in cloud infrastructure, which is plenty busy right now.
