Rolling of my project EoY, been with the same client for 3+ years. I don't mind sticking with the same industry but will I face a lot of grief if I start look at projects in other industries?

Depends on your skill set and level. If the skills are transferable you should be okay. You will have to work to find something outside of your industry of experience but I think you'll be fine.

Looking*

3 years are a lot. You should have moved out earlier. Now is the time of you are not 100% sure this is what you want to do. Avoid that industry like the plague

If you're having second thoughts, get out while you can. Diversity portfolio. Change is hard, but you can do it.

I’m 6 weeks pregnant and work at a tiny agency where our boss hates structure and policy is all about the “just be an adult and communicate” approach to project management/feedback/vacation etc. which has been a nightmare. There’s no mat leave policy to speak of and no HR to talk to - just him. When should I tell him and what should I ask for? So dreading this convo. Was planning on looking for something else but not sure that’s something I have the energy for right now, esp in covid times 🙈

On a project where my manager pushed me to get sign off by a deadline which wasn’t reasonable, so the final document didn’t go through a normal peer review process. Now I’m getting reamed out by the partner for an error while the manager is saying the deadline was “artificial” and “created by me”

God I hate consulting. Get me out.

During my first year as a grad, I attended a client meeting that was supposed to be with the Senior Advisor, Senior Manager and Partner. All I was told was to take notes.

The Senior Advisor couldn’t make it that day, during the presentation the partner said I would be explaining which optimisation strategy we looked into.

The first time I saw these slides was WITH the client..
