Don't hate me but seeing all the airport drama on Monday mornings makes me feel a little better about how I earn substantially less but don't have to travel in federal consulting.

Eh I've seen both sides and I would never go back to Fed. If you don't have major obligations and the right personality to roll with the occasional Monday morning drama, then I think it's well worth it. Difference in scope of work, pace, pay (in some instances), bonding on the projects (in some instances), trying new things on someone else's dime (eg food or team activities), reduced personal expenses during the week, and the free(ish) vacays are pretty dope to me. But like A1 said, to each their own.

If I put up with all the pointless bullshit they did, I would wanna make more than the people who get local travel too.

Commercial consultants travel 80% of the time spending many nights in lonely hotels in not-so-cool cities. I wouldn't do it for less than a 35% pay increase.

☝️☝️☝️

I have a small but steady network of commercial folks. I will try and get myself on one of those projects for the experience.

Saw an open internal role within a team I’d like to join. Went through the interviews and felt I’m going to get an offer soon. However, the hiring manager would like to speak to my manager to discuss an appropriate date for the move. Given that our team is very busy at this time and I own several projects, I have a feeling my manager will want to delay such move. My worry is that the delay may be too far our (several months) that the hiring team will decide to get someone else.What should I do?
