I feel this. I am not getting staffed on a project in my LOB because there arent enough projects for juniors to be staffed on, but have done everything else for promotion. I still can’t get promoted even though it’s not my fault that I’m not getting staffed.

Probably 100 people across 2 offices, give or take

In consulting it’s all about the skills they perceive you have. In addition to trying to fake it, also start looking elsewhere. Even if you get promoted you’ll still be left with minimal guidance

Thats what i feel like i need
I don't need to bespoon fed, just a bit of guidance and direction would be nice

Leave. You're basically out of luck at your current employer. I am in the same boat at mine.

Fish who have been feds,

I have been stuck deciding between two offers (both in IC, but one is more program analysis -similar to consulting work but on the fed side, and actual analysis).

The program analysis offer is at a higher GS level and a more well known agency, but is not what I’m interested in.

Does anyone have any advice on how to make a decision? Go with what I want to do, or go with the more well known agency and higher gs?
