Over 50 in Consulting

How to deal with the never ending exhaustion? Started consulting at the age of 33, and 20 years later chronically tired and impacting my motivation/drive both professionally and personally. Help!

PTO doesn’t help. I’ve taken 2 weeks off and About two weeks after returning from PTO, I’m right back where I started

Deloitte can do that to you - with due respect. On another note, have you looked at opportunities in the industry? That could be an option. When you reach a certain point of exhaustion - consulting ( especially the big 4 kind) is not viable. And why should you even try to make it “work “.

I feel you. I finally stopped traveling after 20 years on the road. And, I also got stuck at Director. I was able to transfer to a group/location that does mostly local work, but I think moving to industry is the way to go now.

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
