Ya because of bad WLB in MBB they switched.. It's pretty horrible it seems like on a daily basis and they were like that's how it's going to be till principal level atleast. Meesho's WLB is better is what they told. 10-12 hours around and post festive season it should be lesser also.

I’ve been off my last billable project for about a month, but my firm has had me putting in full days to work on important internal initiatives and business development that are being taken very seriously, and that include deadlines, etc. very similar to the work I’d do while on a project. Is it likely I’ll be laid off if this continues for another couple of months? How long do you think my firm might let me stay employed like this if they continue to have this much non-billable work for me?

Is it worth putting down the deposit to secure something in case I don’t get into any others? My thinking is Darden with scholarship + interviews at others should be a good sign for the others, but curious if others think potentially losing a couple grand in the long run is worth the security.
