I’ve been off my last billable project for about a month, but my firm has had me putting in full days to work on important internal initiatives and business development that are being taken very seriously, and that include deadlines, etc. very similar to the work I’d do while on a project. Is it likely I’ll be laid off if this continues for another couple of months? How long do you think my firm might let me stay employed like this if they continue to have this much non-billable work for me?

I feel like the usual consulting exit messaging to new employers used to be “need to get off the road”. For those exiting during the pandemic, how are you phrasing the decision to exit to potential employers? My concern with saying something like “need improved work-life balance” is that it equates to “I want to work less hard” given that many companies allow remote work right now which blurs the hours of operation. Am I overthinking this?
