Project leadership is forcing me to stay staffed on a project that I’ve expressed interest in leaving after being on it for nearly 1.5 years. I feel so trapped that I’m interviewing externally because I’m so bored and they won’t give me a chance to find something new. Project leadership has a history of not letting Cs leave. Has anyone else been in this position and quit entirely because of it? I’m even up for promotion this year to SC but don’t think it’s worth sticking around 😔

Get your coach involved. No one can staff you against your will unless you let them. Sure, there may be consequences (burning bridges, bad reputation, no utilization, etc), but at least you’ll be free.

It is a bad position to be in. Job hunting is a good route to pursue. The good news is that you can take your time and find a good exit. You won't be the first or last person to leave Deloitte (or similar firms) due to getting stuck in undesirable work.
