It's kinda bullshit that a lot of us worked hard to get into consulting and now have to deal with layoffs. While others are enjoying safe decent paying jobs even though they slack off.

Can we automatically fire people who say "hi" on Slack and never respond? Its not chat. Slack doesn't interupt your screen if you are presenting. Get with the times, it's 2020. Just tell me what you want!

What type of worker are you? Do you put in a honest days work? Slack off a little but still work? I'm interested in hearing how people get through their work daily.

I see tons of posts on here about how travel will not got back to normal and I completely disagree. Leading workshops in person with a white board, easily answering questions from different departments with little coordination (since your onsite don’t always need to plan a meeting), observing workflows in person to understand current state can not and is not getting replaced by zoom. I would say the effective rate is at 80/90% but the cost of travel is well worth the extra 10-20%.
