How do I roll off my current engagement
Is consulting not for me?
Moved recently into consulting and lately I've frequently been feeling anxious and upset and this has escalated in a period of downtime when we don't have many jobs on and many are on the bench. I've mostly been on the bench for about 2 ish months now and my prior engagement was an 8 month project with a distant, hands off manager where I frequently felt lost, misguided and unsupported as a new consultant (previously doing well as a big 4 senior in audit) (see below)
I have joined IBM on 9th March but still on bench.
Yesterday I received one call from project (based on bangalore) but I accept IBM offer because there are providing Pune location.
What to do is there anything that they are forcing to join from project location only.
Is there any option to choose project from our own.

A team member rolled off while I was still new on the project. He was supposed to hold KT sessions and send documentation of old work but has done maybe ~20% of it (i.e. sending me a list of links w/o explanation) even after I've messaged him a few times about needing some things, and it's preventing me from working effectively with other workstreams. I feel like its my job to get these things from him, but at what point do i ask my manager to intervene?😦

I wanted to know if anyone was having issues with their pharma branded Instagram accounts? My brand’s account was fine yesterday and now when you search it it’s not on IG. It’s a business account so it’s fully public. I reached out to a few brand managers and it’s hit or miss on if they’re brand is found. Cleared caches, incognito browser, and all. I’m not sure if IG is down or if something changed with IG and pharma accounts.

I really don’t like my bf’s family but he keeps pushing me to spend time with them. They’re extremely petty & manipulative of their children & it really bothers me.

How do you get your partners to provide feedback? I’m a senior associate and feel like I have been stagnant in my career lately. I’m not learning new skills and not getting any additional responsibilities. I have a hard time getting my partners to review the work I do for them and often by the time they do, they’ve changed the scope of assignments or decided they no longer need it. Everything I do lately feels like I have just wasted my time and the client’s money

Looking to understand investment trends - how much % of your income do you typically invest? What’s the % breakdown amongst different asset classes (ETFs / stocks / crypto / others etc.)? Do you maintain a steady cash balance in savings / checking account and spend / invest all income? Or do you keep adding some amount monthly to the cash balance as well? Understand the answer would vary depending on personal circumstances. For context - early 30s, single, no kids, living in NYC.
