Consulting

Do any of us actually love consulting or do we do it for the benefits (ie money, travel perks, exit opportunities)?

I like it. Used to love it. Still works for me. I just can’t imagine doing industry any time soon. It makes me cringe thinking about it

I’m here for the benefits but if I hated it then I’d leave. It’s just a job with some nice perks.

If I weren’t paid well, I wouldn’t be here. But, hour for hour (overtime not included), I enjoy the variability much more than industry.

I like consulting, could never go back to industry and the travel perks help especially on bad days

Love it. I’m an undergrad hire and the perks/benefits didn’t really matter much to me - it’s the job itself and the people who have made the good days great and the awful days bearable.

I don’t believe anyone who says they love any job unless they’d do it for free.

Have cried multiple times this weekend about the week ahead and literally curled into a ball on the floor today and cried about tomorrow being Monday. Have been working 17-18 hour days on my current project and I can barely get through the days. I feel like death most days just due to sleep deprivation. Really want to start practicing living in the present and not thinking about future tasks to do/hours but it's hard. Any other advice to get through the days?

Anyone can share how they feel before they decide to leave the big 4? Just letting some steam out - I start to hate my job lately... especially holiday is not respected. Somehow every public holiday in every year, something is up and they just expect you are ready to work. I’m doing better pushing back. I would still do it but probably at my preferred time. Please please please tell me it’s the same everywhere.
