Anyone exited to contract consulting? Thoughts on availability of work, hourly rate increases, longterm network building? Trying to decide if the wlb would be worth leaving, as I have health insurance through spouse.
Last swallow of beer before getting up for 0600 flight getting chased with Advil and a sleeping pill. YOLO. (To be clear I didn't drink enough to mess with sleeping pill.)
Carbs don't count on travel Monday's.
Working from home is miserable. Travel was amazing. Who's with me? Enough of us working together could strongarm our leadership in discouraging clients from cutting the travel model

Do all therapists use the line, “I’m not taking any new patients at this time.” When they don’t want to see someone?! I found someone who would be perfect and got that line. Seems like I’ve gotten that line every time I’ve reached out to a counselor… has anyone successfully gotten past that barrier? Do they not want to take on someone who has insurance and would rather get the full bill rate in cash?
Any thoughts on Havas Health?
Anyone feel like they are conditioned to always try harder, do better, etc? I'm having such a hard time dialing it back (I want to do this for my own mental health). I want to be okay with just being average, but it's like I'm working against myself...I don't know if it's just a consulting thing, but it's taking A LOT of effort, and I hate feeling like I'm letting ppl down, but ppl let me down all the time lol.
It’s too early in the a.m for Delta to be giving me decisions to make.. like whether I want to take $800 to get on the next flight (that’s in 5 hours time) - 5am
Fellow consultants flying Delta, as that annoying hi ho commercial says: "The ones who truly change the world are the ones that can't wait to get out in it"

I feel really fatigued and weak if I don’t eat for a few hours. Outside of just planning my meals better, do you think this could be an underlying health issue?
I joined consulting before covid and really enjoyed the lifestyle (travel, events, socializing, afterworks). I’m young and it was a lot of fun. Now this lifestyle has been gone for two years and the only lifestyle is teams calls. I feel..bored? But bored is not the word. What do y’all do outside of work, during the week? My weekends are fun but my week is just work and teams calls… I’m 22 and I don’t wanna stay at home all day!!!! I wanna see the world
I am looking to switch careers. I have been in my current career for nearly 20 years. I need a change. I have masters degree in instructional technology, health care administration, and English. I am working on trying to work my current skills into today's job market. That is more difficult than I anticipated. I guess I'm wondering if there really is anything out there to switch to? I feel lucky to have a job, but it is getting very depressing and difficult to get up for work.

How difficult is it to transition from an Expert to a Generalist track at Bain & Company at the pre-MBA level?
Need suggestions and your views. Currently at Manager level in DUSI and just got 33% hike. Currently I am holding an offer from a boutique firm which is offering a much higher executive level and 30% hike over my current salary. But since this firm is pretty small and setting up new operations in India, little hesitant. What do you think fishes ?

Left a job in government (prosecution), currently at a mid-size firm. I’m really starting to not only hate law firm life, but the practice of law generally. Is this part of the transition? I left my last job because I was on-call 24/7. Now I’m 24/7 again but due to billable requirements. I have no hobbies, no free time, and only spend about an hour/day with my kids. Not sure I want this life. At least I had insane PTO for govt work.
Hello, I am a Software Engineer with 14 months experience and plan to switch to the role of a Product Owner. I've been a part of Scrum teams throughout my tenure as a Software Engineer. I'm doing a course on Business Foundations and plan to take the PSPO certification exam. Are there any other steps that I need to take to make the transition? Also, is the transition at all feasible given my around 1.5 years of work experience?
