People don’t leave big companies. People leave the management. I felt the same way about PwC. The firm is great on paper but it has some horrible groups. Don’t worry. There is plenty of work to go around. What level are you?

...take Xanax mid day to just survive the workday. Team and leadership has a horribly unhealthy culture and makes me want to leave what I feel is an overall great company. I am totally trapped and know I’ll be stuck on this project for another 2 years if I don’t get rolled off. What should I do to calm my anxiety?

OP this was me last month. Except my project was not for 2 years. I found meditation to be helpful. It helps me clear my mind.
Have you talked to your manager about rolling off? You can make up reasons such as not aligning with your interest but at the end of he day, they just have to know you don’t want to be on the project (tactfully of course)
Not sure what practice you’re in but my practice almost has no bench so it was hard to find a replacement. They’re pulling me back in as a plug until they find someone so we’ll see what happens. I had an anxiety attack on this project but I think I have a better perspective now. At the end of the day, when you have an alternative, it’s not so scary anymore

Exact same situation - no bench in my practice. They and RP know I’m unhappy and don’t want to be there, but at the end of the day “it is what it is”. I’m afraid they will think I’m ungrateful. I’ve been with the firm 9 months and as a younger person I feel like I need more experiences. This one is just painfully scary because it doesn’t sound like there is an alternative

Associate :/

Hang in there. Associate level is hard in the beginning but it gets better. What group are you? Technology?

MC

I mean in MC? FS, DDV, Risk etc.

I don’t want to get too specific in fear of someone in my practice seeing it and knowing the context
