Advice needed: My previous MD recommended me to another project, to which I said yes yesterday. However, I just got offered a 10 month local role today which I really want to take (contd below)

Why do you idiots always want local projects?!? You're doing this all wrong!

Tell your MD that this opportunity better aligns with your career goals, and keeps you billable for 10 months. If the other engagement isn't starting any time soon, then they have time to backfill. Now if that project bid you key, and they are starting soon, it'd be bad form to rescind.

Just want to brag as I can’t do it anywhere else but I did it!! Completed a $26M project that was a disaster when I took it over, but it came in on time, at budget & corporate was so happy. I can’t even count the times that I was told the project was going to fail or why they put someone like me in charge. The comments I would get said that I was a stupid little girl that couldn’t do it. My boss helped me get through it & he sat me down after the project was complete & told me I did it!

Need some advice: Last year I left consulting to take a job in industry (a pay cut, but more freedom, WLB). Due to covid I switched to yet another company (same industry). It’s been half a year at the new place and I absolutely hate it. Not the work, but the company genuinely sucks. Considering a) mba for next fall (just as a reset) or b) job hopping yet again. I’m so demoralized that the past two industry jobs have gone so badly. I’m starting to regret not just staying in consulting...
