Hopefully you're not reducing the bottom line. FYI: "bottom line" = profit, not cost.

D2 and D3 - I didn’t mean to refer to Deloitte in anyway. It was targeted at all of consulting firms in general. And if you read my post, you’ll realize that I said most of our engagements and not all. I know every firm does something meaningful and I only wanted to hear examples of those from people who have done it

Haha, you missed that there are so many engagements that we do, and there we don't even impact the top line / bottom line.

i feel like staying in consulting isn’t a matter of how efficient/hardworking you are. it’s about your personality’s ability to let the “bad” flow over your shoulders more easily than others who might harbor and resent the lifestyle. That said, consulting is so not for me. The health issues Ive gotten from the intensity of this job is literally astounding. Like I don’t even feel human at this point, but others on my team are fine. it’s a personality thing

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.
