New to consulting from industry. It is so slow and quiet right now, even on my project. Is that normal for this time of the year? Industry I felt like it was a mad dash to get everything done by EOY/before the holidays.

I feel like I’m not learning anything at my internship. It’s easy work and good pay though. Should I try to take on another project or multiple to try to gain more experience? But I was told it’ll be much harder and I would be expected to work longer hours and managers will be rough on me. Is this worth it when I go to school full-time as well while trying to balance a part time job? (The internship at D is expected to be part time but they might make me work more).

Has anyone partnered with someone on client work and then had them bail part way through? How did you handle?
