How long do you stick it out on an awful client before speaking up (if ever)? I'm traveling M-F and the client continues to churn through our resources. I'm a team player, just burning out.

Bored out of my mind at work. I’ve asked for more responsibilities but there isn’t much to do on the account itself. Im essentially being paid (industry standard) to do nothing.

Any advice, or am I complaining about nothing?

You ever feel like you're just failing to excel in consulting? Today and yesterday have been really hard to tap into any discipline to push past whatever brain fog/lack of motivation is preventing me from making progress on this project. I don't know if I'm just tapped out or not cut out for this type of intensity, but I'm 1.5 yrs into consulting after working in industry and this seems to happen too often. I just don't feel like I'm as good as my peers and don't know that I can get there.
