I would not quit right now, and it has nothing to do with being in the middle of a project.

Grass is always greener. Don’t jump forms / industries looking for a small pay bump or to get off of a bad project. You’ll get through it. Don’t underestimate the compounding returns of effort where you are.

How long have you been in the firm? I was like you a year ago, and about to leave my firm, but then decided to keep up a while longer and I’m glad I made that choice because I overcame the things I was stressed about and learned to appreciate my firm for other things I couldn’t see before.

I’ve forced myself off a toxic project and leadership by taking an unpaid leave. It helped my mental health and well-being tremendously and ultimately allowed me to regroup and excel forward. This was couple months ago prior to covid however

Boutique firm with 15 employees. Partners sell the project and then disappear. Right now we are closing the project and my (3 people) team is struggling because the partner is asking for a lot of things he expected us to include and we didnt because we are all new to the healthcare industry which my firm focuses on (<6 months). Overall culture is toxic and I am soon to receive an offer from another firm, but we’re still waiting for visa approval.

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?

Junior working with ex v5 senior in M&A. He consistently asks me to turn major deliverables at the worst hours, think 10 pm Friday/Sat/Sun night “tonight” or “by tomorrow morning” even when there is no closing date in sight. When I push back he says my behavior is unacceptable. The times when I have been able to actually meet his expectations and give him the deliverable for review, he will get back to me with comments at least a week later. Sick of these false deadlines.
