I’m jealous of all the support & praise Simone Biles is getting for stepping away from competition to focus on her mental health. I’m on the edge of my breaking point and wish I could press pause and step away with the same support.

Wait, she’s not the undisputed best at what she does? I take the opinion of the gymnastic world as pretty credible evidence.

Who don’t you feel supported by, your company, family, friends?

Think people are referring to company here

It's because you're no one. Sad, but true.

Honestly just fake a medical emergency and take off for a week. The company will survive

For those who need a break. Just take the break. You are not saving lives and consulting is not worth your mental health. Get a doctors note and go on sick leave or fmla if needed. Mental health is covered. And, talk to your HR of the team is not supportive.

3 YoE in health consulting (generalist w/agile and change management experience), and finally received a secret clearance. But now concerned I'm pigeonholing myself over the next 3 years as I think a lot of health work at my firm that requires clearances are more "butts in seats" My goal is to learn as much as I can over next 3 years (WLB is not a concern). With that said, despite the job security of a clearance, would it be better to consider looking at commercial consulting roles?

Mentioning the programs is greatly appreciated.

Hi Folks - I wanted to understand..how is H1B 6 years duration counted? Is it strictly by the dates on the petition?

So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
