Sorry are you me? Just took the same path and was sitting at home thinking about how wild it is that I don’t have to do any timesheets. No, the work is not riveting at all but honestly, that feels kind of nice. It doesn’t follow me home.

I'm at a veeerrrry similar place. Permalancing in-house. I'm at about year 3 and it is starting to finally get to me though. Think I'm forgetting how to design, stagnating a bit. May try a side project first before moving on though, this is a good life to have.

But is the salary directly comparable (ie if I am 1+0 and recently got a raise to ~$120,000 base, will that be the same at the new firm?

I’ve been on H1B October 2019, expiring in 2022. I’m kind of clueless as to what happens next. Does my firm start the green card process soon because it’s been almost 2 years (ive heard/read you need to work 2 years before they do that at big 4). What does that entail and how long until the green card comes out after that? And when they renew my H1B for another 3 years is that a guarantee extension and not a lottery like the first one?

I was fired last month after a short time at the company. I knew things weren't going well- it was a terrible culture fit & I was also planning my exit strategy. They wouldn't give me specific reasons other than to vaguely say it was performance related. I agree I made a few dumb mistakes (none of any dire consequence) but what kills me is that I tried really hard. I don't want to change careers but I have a deep seeded fear that no matter how hard I try, I will never be a "good attorney".

What is consultant role in HCL??

Current undergrad. Have internship offers for two very different roles. The first is a public sector generalist management consulting position in DC. The second is for a smaller early-stage incubation venture capital firm in NYC. I've always been somewhat of a generalist, with varying interests. I feel as though based on my decision my life could go in very different directions... Any insights? Esp if you're in public sector consulting or have made a similar dec. Gratitude.
