My project partners have been talking about how after the pandemic is officially ‘over’ we still probably won’t go back to traveling 4 days / week, since clients have now realized that we can be fairly effective remote...they think we may only travel a few times during the course of a project for key meetings. Which honestly sounds terrible and I’d probably leave consulting if that becomes the case

On a full time travel project now and have been on several throughout the last year. It’s going to come down to what sector you’re working in in my view. Manufacturing? Yeah we are almost all back on site now, most of my on site work is in this space. financial? Probably not.

I really like my family so hope never

Over the last few months my job work load has increased to helping more teams and I have been brought on to be a major voice on a product transition (I am one of three non managers helping make the decision and have more responsibility on the project then half the managers. The company is global (30+ teams)) and I can see that it will increase over the next months. The company I work for is known for not promoting internally easy. Anyone have any advice on how to make the transition easier?
