... OP continued: I’m only making 55k since I’m tied to a DC even though I travel full time. (Never once worked in an actual DC). Should I quit? I think it’s shameful what Deloitte gets away with in regards to DC consultants.

youre not on the deloitte bowl so you should clarify that dc refers to one of the “on shore” cheap resource centers.

Getting out of delivery model is practically impossible but has been done. You'll likely burn a bunch of bridges as delivery leadership doesn't like losing people to Core. Any remaining friendships if not burnt to the ground will be unrecognizable sure to being covered in the green moss of jealousy. Good luck. DM if you'd like to talk about the process.

I need help asking for help - more specifically identifying what exactly others can help with. There are extenuating circumstances in most cases but I’ve had coworkers out in bereavement, project scopes increasing, and my own capacities are shrinking with burnout - I can’t focus, misreading/misinterpreting, I’m spacing on finding documents/notes, and overall inefficient between calls with the volumes of emails. Friends & manager tell me I’m being too hard on myself, but work is only piling on

I just feel as if he’s not very good at delegating.

I interviewed for a position remotely 3 weeks ago with the 3 partners of an agency at the same time, and it went well. The CFO then took 30 minutes after the initial hour to talk more and she asked that I reach out to her for more questions as well as to let her know when I have relocated as I told them that I am about to move. After 3 weeks, I sent a follow-up note to the HR contact and no response all last week. Shall I try contacting the CFO directly since she did ask that I do? Thoughts?
