People talk about the benefits of hanging on an extra year but at what point is it a detriment towards your career IF you want to change lines?

Someone asked me about the perks and benefits of this job. Let's be real - if you're after those things, try your luck with Silicon Valley instead.

Wow so generous of our MD to give our team such a generous Go Live Thank you gift! The fact that he’d risk getting caught by the hotel staff for stealing the hot chocolate and coffee from the lobby for us means so much!

Was recently let go from Accenture due to COVID-19 cuts end of August and navigating the job market for the first time. For resumes is it ok to put previous client names when applying for roles if the project work was public? Going through the automated applicant systems is tough and it is easier to not have to make up terms for old clients... Usually the names come up during the interview anyways. Appreciate any help during these tough times!
I told my MD and manager I want to be off the project. Gave my reasons based on my interests and objectives. They don’t want to let me go.

I hate this account, I have anxiety from it, very toxic.
Always been loyal to National but they’ve been out of cars a lot lately. I have an Avis reservation at LAX but they suck. Just rechecked National, they now have one car showing available. Do I do it? Should I roll up to the client in a church van?
