How many people have had success leaving “big” consulting to start doing freelance work? The freedom and money sound very appealing, especially since I’m getting pretty sick of the corporate rat race. Luckily I’m in a niche area and get hit up on LinkedIn a lot about independent contracts. What kinds of things should I be considering as I contemplate this potential career change? Any advice from someone who has made the jump is appreciated.

Honestly want to know if I am being unreasonable. My husband and I have worked f rom home since the start of the pandemic. Two kids 100% remote until two weeks ago when school started back up. I had to stop my work at 12:30pm every week day to make lunch for the kids and also made some for my husband to took it to his office nook. I typically don’t have time to stop and eat myself since I’m down at minimum those 30 minutes and I work in a bedroom so the smell of food in there is not desired…

What's the salary for a Senior Manager at Accenture Strategy? Sign in bonus? Annual bonus range? How is Accenture Strategy different from the rest of Accenture?
it feels like every survey about working from home is (poorly) designed to answer the useless question "would you rather work from home or from the office." I submit that the set of people who prefers to have only one of those two options, always and forever, is the null set. which means it DOES NOT MATTER because the correct answer is always going to be "make both possible." you're welcome, HR departments everywhere.
