In the same position too... assuming you're EY, op? The seniors on the project would rather us sit there doing nothing rather than letting us pursue initiatives outside of the project. A few people told me to go to HR because I'm truly unhappy about my job.

^lol. What on earth do you think HR is going to do for you

@C1 how did you figure out I'm EY? Is this a like a firm culture? I'm fairly new to the firm and this is my 2nd project.

@OP it's obvious and I'm not sure if it's the culture but there's definitely a lot of people with @EY 1's attitude and view. Honestly, it's no one's fault and I think it's amazing we feel this way and we recognize we as humans are not growing.

In your experience, what do you think is more valued in consulting, industry knowledge or business offering knowledge? I’ve always assumed business offering knowledge but I’m working on a market entry project (which I’ve done a million times) in a unique industry outside the two I typically work in and I feel pretty lost.

I made a post yesterday generally asking thoughts on being asked to do a design assessment as part of an interview. I just received the project, and it is a five page brief asking for 2-3 variations of two deliverables as part of a phase one campaign for an existing real product. I am to present, make changes live on the call, then give them my files by midnight the day after.

I feel like this is scamming me of my intellectual time with no guarantee of an offer. Am I justified or being cynical?

Some partners at my firm prefer to send out incomplete/rushed documents to the client instead of taking a bit more time to tie up any loose ends. This makes me very uncomfortable and I’ve seen it happen with several different partners on different matters. Seems like meeting fake deadlines is more important than good work product (E.g. would push me to send out an incomplete doc before midnight instead of waiting until the morning to hear back from specialist). Does this happen anywhere else?

What's best in your opinion.
Resign first then get released from Current Project.
Get Released from Current Project and then resign, so that you'll have time to prepare for switching.
Is it better to stay for 5 more months (Band will be released in April/May, Notice Period will be 3 more months), so one can get offers on top of revised compensation.
Let me know your thoughts.
