Left EY to join a very small consulting firm and in 3 months I hate my life and everything about it. I am 33 and feel like this is the worst time to be having a career crisis and yet, here I sit with my Future looking super super dark. I have nothing to feel good about and I dont even know how I should respond to life anymore. PLEASE for the love of god, if you know of any opportunities in IT project/portfolio management or Business Analytics, please help me. I dont know how I reached here but..

How has the Delta variant and other possible variants impacted your firm’s/client’s plans for working in offices? During my meetings this morning it felt like a lot of leaders and the legal team were leaning towards hybrid without the requirement for any days in the office. If the company doesn’t require employees to be vaccinated and someone later passes COVID to a vulnerable family member they could potentially sue, create bad press, etc. I’m surprised common sense took so long….
New to B4 consulting but how bad is it to roll off a project earlier than your end date? Would my RM even allow it? Just trying to understand how much independence I really have and also just the culture of staffing

Considering boomeranging back into public tax. It’s been about 15 months and I’m really not feeling my current job. I miss working with more than 2 people and on more than one project.

Searching for hobby suggestions/ideas. I’ve been struggling to focus lately and it’s been difficult for me to focus on my usual hobbies (reading, building an app side project etc).

At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project. I believe I'm on track to promotion in the next year. So, I could put in a year of full time school to check the box off, but I'd be sacrificing hobbies and social life (not to mention cost). Is this FOMO or is there real opportunity here?
After a year in big 4 and being beyond miserable and unhappy with my client and the firm, I have a great opportunity with CLA thanks to a sr mgr there. Thoughts on dipping for CLA?
