What’s the difference between exiting at C vs M (or SC)? I’m interviewing for a Product Manager role that would net at least a 20% salary increase. At the same time, I’m having second thoughts about leaving consulting given the current trend of layoffs.

Someone I know applied for an SC position with a fake resume. Literally no IT experience. Apparently recruiter bought it and scheduled a second round with a PPMD. I can't accept the fact that our colleagues are getting laid off and yet people like these get an opportunity to join the firm. Any thoughts?

Just got laid off, what would one year as a Senior Consultant in Strategy, an MBA at a top 15 school, and 6 years prior work experience get me? Any potential to get a strategy/BD position at FAANG?

Ex-Deloitte (and other) consultants who got laid off: If your experience has been in strategy or payments, my firm is still hiring. We have positions open at Director, Manager, SC and juniors levels.

For those that are depressed and struggling in the agency world. I made it through 5 forced hospital visits including being forcibly tied to a bed twice just for talking a little too fast, after being fired for being gay, and now I have my own venture. It does get better. You will get better. Your life is not worth the grind. You have worth. Here's art therapy I did for months to feel better. I hope it helps create some understanding of the seriousness of mental illness in the industry.

working 12 hour days on my project, feeling exhausted, stressed, and anxious. SO was informed he was being laid off last week (industry), in addition with everything happening in the news (covid, senate, election, protests) I’m feeling overwhelmed and helpless. not sure what I thought I would accomplish by posting but the constant reminders pointing to “well-being” and “EY assist” just don’t assure me at this point and it’s hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
