New to consulting and the big 4 - have been extended on the same project since joining. The project does not align to the skills or experience I was hired for and has been extremely challenging due to the lack of project organization and proper staffing. I received ‘progressing towards level’ on my last engagement review. How do I get off this project that’s clearly not a fit before it negatively impacts my overall career at the firm?

How does base compensation vary across the accounting advisory roles in big 4? PWC CMAAS, EY FAAS, KPMG AAS, DT advisory. Specifically for senior managers.
