Depends .... Do you have an example ? C& M going to Operations ???

Depends on your level. The more junior the less important

Aligned to PRD but working in Resources role...it was interesting and I was new (experienced hire), so it got me off the bench. Been working outside of PRD ever since

Thanks A2...consultant so not that important

Yep. Worry about your chargeability and being liked by everyone. It's really easy at this stage.

In the new model, it will hurt you a bit because you won't have any one familiar with your work representing you in the OU talent discussions, you'll be 100% reliant on your CC.

Check with your own MD

Bench is death, so no!

Is anyone satisfied with their career choice? I don’t mind working in my current role (think IT consulting), but it doesn’t bring me any contentment or satisfaction. I do love the real estate market (licensed in my state), but don’t know if I’ll find meaning by switching to real estate corporate. For reference, I’ve only been in the workforce for a little more than half a year (+ 3/4 internships in school).

If I want to go back to PwC, would it be better to get a referral or just apply on my own? Left as an A3.

What are some good exit options that pay decently, are interesting and have 9-6 hours?
