I’ve joined the league of Covid layoffs. I was in an Art Director role with an experiential agency. I’d love to move into a more strategy focused role next — any advice on how best to pivot?

Am I correct in noticing that in Consulting, strategy is the sexy role that pays the most but in industry having technical skills and being an engineer has higher TC and better job security. I have a background in engineering but went into strategy consulting after school and I’ve been starting to wonder if I made the right choice. Thoughts?

I heard LTI never fires people. The current project I'm in is not at all good. Neither is the team nor my manual testing role where I dont use no tool or technology whatsoever😑. I fear this will impact my future/immediate job prospects (2 years of nothing/ dumb work) If I exit my project and sit on bench, is there a specific period of time or procedure, before they fire me? I was hoping I could use my time on bench to prepare for a new role. Please advise.. Thanks Larsen & Toubro Infotech

My parents are Indian and live in the UK. I’m in my early 30s and am tired of the constant drama and childish behaviour they exhibit. Most recently, they travelled abroad during COVID tier-2 restrictions, and when they got COVID being back home - they didn’t tell me. My father leaves family-wide WhatsApp groups, and I know my younger brother is in their ear 24/7. I can’t picture how to have a relationship with them going forward. The thought of them visiting fills me with dread.

What’s going on FB friends,

I am contemplating a move to industry working at a VC, Tax Director role east coast. Looks like it will be primarily overseeing compliance with some aspect of advising on structures etc. There is another tax reporting head above me.

The potential comp is the low 200k with a 10% bonus (still higher than what I am making). I feel this is pretty low for VC standards but maybe my standards are also too high. I have generally seen 25% bonus with carry.

Any thoughts?
