Quit my old firm, started my new one 4 weeks ago. On a understaffed first project acting as senior /manager with a difficult client. Thinking about quitting to go back to my old firm. Thoughts? Left on good terms/open door with my team offering a counter offer previously.
do you ever wish that something minorly bad would happen to you (injury, sick, etc.) so you didn’t have to work for the next month / stay on your current project?
How do I nicely tell a director (not the one I report to) that I don’t want to work on a project that she’s trying to get me on? My manager and I already had a conversation about me not working on this specific thing (he and I both agree it isn’t something that’ll help my case for promotion, doesn’t need three people working on it, etc). Manager said he’d talk to her but it isn’t sinking in…
I was asked to provide a writing sample after an interview today. All the memos I've written are client confidential nor do I have easy access to. Since I recently graduated, should I just use...

I don't know what the guys on my project eat for lunch, but they need to stop immediately. It smells like a dead body in the men's room every afternoon. I literally have to hold my breath peeing
Go on paternity leave now or stay on Long-Term project? Since we’ll be wfh now for the foreseeable future anyway not sure if I should still take the leave.
B4 strategy or general 🐠, would love your advice. Currently, 2 YOE at a well known non B4 firm doing PI/Transformation work. I didn’t get promoted this year because I didn’t have enough experience in my particular group because I was staffed on a different project for awhile. I’m interested in Strategy analyst roles (1 YOE). Will me not being promoted hurt my chances? I’ll probably get promoted at the beginning of 2022. Should I wait until then to apply? Thanks.

What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?

I’m really burned out by WFH and plan to take a week off. Don’t want to go out too much yet so will likely just stay at home. The challenge: I have no idea what I’m doing with several days at home - maybe just binge watch Netflix? Any ideas?
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
