For those of you who moved back home amid the virus, how much do you help out?

I'm able to help more in the evening with dinner, dishes etc.

Outside of LinkedIn or Glassdoor how do you find a career outside of consulting? I have 16 years of military career (currently a Major in the National Guard) and 4 years of consulting experience with a masters degree in analytics and bachelors in organizational leadership. It’s damn near impossible to get an interview outside of the consulting world for me.

Hi consulting fish, new Big 4 hire here. I started recently and have met a lot of cool people, but one thing that's been an unpleasant surprise is how endemic cronyism is at my firm. It's not even a secret: during orientation managers were open about the fact that they don't even post their projects on the staffing portal, and just load them up with their friends/connections. I'm feeling a bit disillusioned and am wondering whether this is true across the field or limited to my firm.
