The irony is the person I'm talking about got the job before this, really wanted NY but couldn't get it, and was somehow forced into CA with no ties there (and getting CA is usually orders of magnitude harder...)

Deciding that next year (ideally before) is my cut off for leaving this job; whether it’s through a new career path, manual labor or just quitting without a backup plan. My mental health deserves better, sticking it out for one more year as I aim to to be vested in my 401K and save up for 6-9month emergencies. I feel insane for leaving consulting especially with only 1-2 YOE but it’s just not worth it anymore.
