Hello 🐠, I have been on a project that I do not like, has absolutely obliterated my work life balance, and put me under a lot of stress. Not to say this doesn’t happen a lot in our job, but I have an opportunity to go back to an old client that I loved. My current project leadership knows the date I’m set to roll off, but have been hinting they won’t let me leave because I’m good at my job. I am so desperate to leave and have been advised by multiple colleagues to do so. What do I do??
On the bench for the first time in a while. So happy I'm not waking up at 4:40 a.m. Good luck to the rest of you flying out tomorrow! I'm going to sit naked in my bed and build a few decks.
So since the economy is on the bench at this point, whatever hospital is talking money I'm ready to scrub in!!
Any company file GC on day 1 in NYC or NJ area or east coast. Maxing out in feb 2022 and on bench nothing is started. What I can do ? Please suggest. Skill set AWS/ DevOps/ Infra.
F, just got rolled off & having a hard time feeling like it’s not bc I challenged M Mgr. Have seen him disrespect F Mgr in front of the team and make her visibly upset. Feels sexist. First proj @ D. ☹️
Answered a client email at 5am today even though I rolled off yesterday. You won't last in consulting unless you find satisfaction in helping truly deserving clients. #dedication
I rolled off this damn job two months ago why am I just now getting review comments that need to be cleared right away smh.
Ok I don’t want to sound hypersensitive, but does anyone else think the phrase “on the bench” is kind of harsh? I’m not even on the bench but I feel slightly uncomfortable saying it

How to best utilize your time when you’re on the bench? I have started some online learning, getting ready for CFA, exercising, cooking, reading books, but I still feel that I have plenty of unused time. And the routines are killing me too.
On the bench for the third week, reached out to demand, my coach, RP and my network etc. Decided to catch up on some workout and laundry today. Shall I feel guilty?
I have something to learn from this guy. Next time a client asks me a question I'm going to have audio issues https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/qak967/never_go_full_wall_street_bets_on_national_tv/

Looking to take a family vacation out west in August and my mom really want to go to Big Sky. I really want to do Yellowstone, but I feel like it’s best to stay in the park for a couple of nights to really experience Yellowstone, rather than a day trip in from Big Sky. Thinking we should do a couple nights in Big Sky and a couple nights in Yellowstone. Planning to fly in and out of Bozeman. Any recommendations for Big Sky or Yellowstone? Anyone stayed in Yellowstone?
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!

Compensation for cognizant - Engagement Partner?
I think I joined consulting because I have commitment issues - scared to commit to a specific industry or area Now I’m looking to leave consulting but I get cold feet every time a role seems too “niche” Interviewing with a great firm, the role is definitely up my alley in terms of skill set, culture, pay, etc. Any advice to help me not be a runaway bride?
Any good exiting opportunities for h1b holders?
Question about mentorship: in formal mentorship relationships (for ex. Where your mentor is a partner you work for and there is no personal friendship or friendliness), how often would you expect to meet/ talk to your mentor? And what kind of issues do you think should be discussed or not discussed? For ex. If I’m facing a particular issue while working with another member of our team, or I think my bonus needs to be extra good this year, are those topics that would be appropriate to discuss?
