I’ve started playing “Where The Streets Have No Name” everyday when I leave the client site to keep hope alive. That’s how much I hate my project

I came from a toxic culture that forced 80 hour weeks and terrible commutes. I didn’t hear OP complain about a drive commute and sleeping in their own bed, not balance issues or a terrible partner. Many consultants would love to be local; make the most of it and position yourself for a more inspiring client and better commute...

Great song choice!

What is so awful about the project?

Great song! It’s my favorite by U2 and one of my favorites. I hope your project turns around

Local project but awful commute (70 - 90 minutes each way). Not the most inspiring client. Yes I’m looking for a new job :)

When you have a roll off date set, I suggest “I Shall Be Released” by The Band

Maybe just suck it up and get through the project, we’ve all done hard projects - up to you if you learn from it or just job hop anytime something gets hard...

MD1 only ever takes cold showers because of that one time when he or she ran out of hot water at home and just realized that sometimes you just can’t have nice things in this world and you just gotta man or woman through it with your big boy or girl pants (or skirt?) on.

^ Deloitte being Deloitte

MD1 is probably forcing 5 people to do the same thing as OP every night and feels good about it

Guys, I need a suggestion from everyone one of you. Salary for my experience as per current market standards in 28 to 30 LPA, which is almost 80 to 90% increment from my current CTC. Should I look for switch now or should I wait for another appraisal, as I am currently onboarded for a new project. I am thinking it will create a bad impression if I switch when I am entering into a new project, so thinking to switch after 6 months. What is your suggestions, please comment

Also want to do the automatic change from 40 to 30 years ADS for Residential Real Property under 163j. Missed the deadline to file the non-automatic in 2020 and doesn’t make sense to do the 40 to 30 change first.
