Work on an XD project with that team. Then ping the partner to seek advice. If he/she is open to a transfer, speak to your partner and work the transfer out. If you have an existing relationship with XD partner, then you can short circuit straight to the partner conversation. Your best try is internal. No chance external

Hi! Welcome to the bowl

I think it will depend on a lot of factors. A lot of the Big 4s have experience design verticals. Is it possible to horizontally move there?

Fishes at MBB or even Big 4 consulting. How is the return-to-work / hybrid model being worked out at your firm? I stared not too long ago and I’m not huge fan of the virtual environment. I’ve found it to be longer hours, unproductive and needless zoom calls. Before the WFH forever zealots jump on me, but m not advocating to return back the office 100%. I’m just genuinely curious if this will continue to be the norm. Because if it is, it’s not for me.

I really don’t think there’s a chance that the SCOTUS overturns Roe. I would hope this affirming decision further slams the door on states trying to legislate what happens in a doctor’s office between a pregnant woman and her doctor. There’s always a chance this swings the other way, but this SCOTUS so far has a non partisan approach, regardless of what the media has portrayed. The panic seems unwarranted.
