Anyone that has utilization issues because of the quality of their work should be aware that they are subject to termination with cause. It also depends on whether this is a pervasive and continuing issue or isolated and part of just being a new staff.

Generally your manager/pml/equivalent will communicate do betters to you and give you time to improve before it is formally documented. Then, if you are still struggling there will be a formal process that still gives you a set amount of time to improve or to look for a new job. I would say if they can tell you are trying your leash will be longer and they may be willing to put you on jobs that might better for your skill set.

Anyone else have a lingering fear that they could be fired at any moment? I’ve received great performance reviews and my partner says I’m doing very well, but I don’t vibe with my colleagues as well as it seems others do.

If a former manager never fought for you or bothered to reach out when you got laid off and then creeps your LinkedIn every so often is it worth keeping them as a contact, or remove them?

I was laid off because they didn’t have enough work for me (despite assurances that it was all fine, no plans for layoffs etc). Since found a new job and it’s been slow, and my requests for work seem to be going into the ether. I know rationally it’s too soon to panic but I can’t get past that anxiety of being laid off again due to lack of work. Anyone been through this? How do you get your confidence back? (My work is my life. I don’t have much non-work stuff to focus on, which doesn’t help.)

I’ve been told two years minimum which is unfortunate because if I leave in six months I’ll make a lot more money on the market.

Hi All - Associate Partner / Principal at MBB. Deciding whether to play out rest of my consulting career (whether a few years or longer) in US vs. UK. US obviously pays better, but largely a wash factoring for exchange rate / cost of living. Wondering if spending next 2-5 years in UK would impact comp/ exit ops for exit to US? E.g. lower comp/ perceptions of smaller market experience. Appreciate it!

Two job opps at the moment. One I love the culture. Decent brand name (could do better) but absolutely loved everyone I interviewed with. The other is the best brand name in the business, but working somewhat busy season hours (not fully busy season hours like 80-90 a week but like 65) and okay with the culture. Basically don’t hate it don’t love it. Will very much accelerate my career way more than option 1. Thoughts?
