How to tell manager I’m burnt out, when I have a project offer on the table? (I’m an analyst and being staffed is imperative rn to avoid RAs rampant within my company).

I wouldn’t ever use the term “burnt out,” I’d tread a little lighter and ask about spreading the workload more evenly. Or something like that. How many hours you working? If it’s less than 50 you don’t have a case. Most analysts are in the same boat as you

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?

I had to tell them that they were being inappropriate and just make the change. Finally they did, and then shot me a note saying they’d find time on our calendars to talk about this tomorrow. Talk about what??? Who gets the final say?

Anyone have managers / leadership (non consulting) who seems disengaged?
