I feel stuck in my career. 2 YOE consulting, 2 YOE strategy team in industry (mostly PMO with some strategic projects). Passed over for a promotion. I just haven’t been motivated in the job admittedly - the team culture is dead and stifling. Any ideas where to go on out from here? I would love to look at tech PM positions, but I do not have the relevant skill set. Do not want to go back to consulting. And I’m not sure continuing down this “strategy” route in industry is a good idea.
Forget COVID and the economy being in shambles. If I want to max my salary by jumping to a new firm, every few years, but don’t want to be seen as a flight risk, how often should I jump? For context I’m coming up on my one year anniversary and am also one year out of school making $74,700 in DC. Thanks!

How do schools feel about you jumping from a management consulting firm to startup if that startup fails badly after you join? I’m sure you could spin it as a learning experience but will that really work when you’re being compared against people from MBB/PE/FAANG?

George Floyd’s murder: Not directly related to COVID, but do we know answers to any of these questions? 1. Chauvin and Floyd worked together at a nightclub. Does Chauvin have any personal motive behind the murder? Or even if so, maybe he won’t fess up since this might be viewed as 1st degree? 2. Chauvin had multiple complaints/reports against him. Do they mostly involve African-Americans? 3. Why did the Minneapolis PD not fire Chauvin after his involvement in 3 shootings and numerous complaints?
