Is GPS business consulting (tech risk/internal audit) a stable career? Is it like commercial where you can get benched easily, get fired, or have to constantly look for projects to join/take you in? I’m assuming GPS is safer since they are often massive multi year contracts and always growing.

GPS is super stable generally. Obviously not as secure as working in the government but I only know one person fired from gps and they weren’t doing their job. You could work on a single project for your entire career. The trade off is lower pay

Thanks for the insight. Hope the pay part is not right. Looking to get at least 100k transferring from audit to consulting with 5 YOE.

It’s definitely less pay versus commercial but 100k with 5 yoe is doable

A friend was told their firm will cut ties EOY if certain things don’t improve. Friend had planned to quit in the next year anyway (to start their own business), so there is no real incentive to bend over backwards. Friend’s goal is to keep the income for a little longer, but to minimize conflict / headaches. What’s the best move here? Wait until EOY and take the severance? Give 6 / 9 / 12 months’ notice now? Is there such a thing as too much notice? Could too much notice backfire?
