I did this coming out of a BB, upside can be good and focus on underwriting the strategy pretty hard before doing this... if you are early in career you can bounce to some other place or use MBA as your career call option

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Gearing up towards salary negotiations, I've got 2 YOE and 66.668$ TC as a consultant with no benefits.

I am considering putting forward a proposal of a 25-30% increase to match my role as QA lead, is this to bold?

I want to leave now. I feel like this depression and anxiety become a trauma that affects me personally and professionally. My former and trusted colleagues who left earlier try to talk me to push myself further and leave after the bonus but i feel like a battle every day and every minute is so long and slow to pass by. Things that used to be easy and inspiring become difficult and suffering. Is anyone in the same position? How do you push yourself? Or should i just stop pushing and just leave.

Worried that this A.) could result in staying much longer than planned B.) would still ultimately result in crazy consulting hours and C.) wouldn't go as smoothly as idealized
