One of the hardest things to learn is that Just because someone offers you a job, you don’t have to take it. Human nature is to go where you feel wanted...not always the best call.

If you’re working with smart, kind people there’s no reason to leave given the monetary benefits. Potential sales roles can also be fun, though perhaps tiring

Of course, I’m just saying from the other side this can be a viewpoint. There’s so many viewpoints to think of...

Do you not like the work, or people, or something else?

When you see people you like leave the firm, it really lowers the overall morale

New to consulting, but it seems like utilization targets really only function to incentivize folks to avoid the bench. In terms of billing actuals, isn’t everybody better off if you just bill 40/45/whatever your target is?
