One year in consulting and I'm pretty sure that the travel isn't for me. Should I try to switch to finance or stick it out and let my utilization/chargeability decline until I get a local role?

You'll likely get fired before they just give you a local role


If you look hard enough and let your CC and TFS know your goals you might be able to swing a local role. If you are in a big hub there are usually tons of local or internal roles if you are not picky about what you are doing

You could always find a consulting firm with regional staffing. I travel maybe 2-4 weeks a year in total.

Come to the dark side. Fed.

They'll just fire you
