Finishing strong is simultaneously the hardest thing ever and the most important. They only remember how you finish. I’ve had mixed experiences and have always *deeply* regretted it when I slacked at the end. It’s the worst, but bite down hard and do whatever you need to do to finish on a high note. You’ll be thankful later

I have a question for Consulting leadership.
Was is not unethical practice for firm to stop double hatting incentive for Consultant and below and continue that for Sr Con and above for 3 extra months? In many of the cases, Cons continued duing extra work for additional project with no monetary benefits whereas Sr Con got benefits for the same work.
I mean to ask should not the policy be same for all or are we slowly moving away from flat hierarchy?
