What is your take on consultants being stuck on long projects? It’s like pulling teeth trying to roll off of some accounts. We never get a say in our extension. Will leadership address this?

i try to freshen about 1/3 of a project team each stage. to build continuity, but keep challenging. i may shift people around to different roles. typically, i’ll have a convo with each consultant asking if they want to stay or go. if they want to go, the question is what type of project. then, i try to help them find those oppty. at times, i may ask someone to stay on and take one for the team. i always make good to repay that. my suggestion is to talk to the practice lead or your mentor. it is hard for leadership to know what you want to do. we have lots of people who want to stay where they are.

if we know about the issue and then don’t act, you have a right to be upset.

Who should I trade for? 12 team standard league. Feel like I have too much depth on the bench (Elijah Mitchell, Julio, diante Johnson, devonta smith) to not make a trade. I’m thinking I would probably be open to trading for a top tier wr, Rb, or tight end. Or even consider trading for a middle of the pack tight end.

Thoughts about freelancing someone after you interview them as a trial run?
