Would my bosses let me move to work in a different state? I work as an internal consultant within KPMG, working for the firm within the internal HR team. I have been with KPMG for 5 months but I am wanting to move back home to be with my family - on the other side of the country. There’s only a 2 hour Timezone difference and I’d make sure to work on current time. My line manager I report to lives in another state to me anyway - and it seems to work well for her. Am I pushing my luck to ask?

I don’t see how it would make a difference - besides not being able to see my team mates face to face everyday (or a few days a week based on new upcoming working from home plans).

P.S there is a KPMG office where my family lives too. But no one in my team works there.

Usually in consulting , they are pretty open/flexible on relo , it helps if you are near a KPMG office . Definitely worthwhile to ask it’s a reasonable request . Good luck 👍

Making sure I’m not crazy...if an agency books you for say 2 months. And it’s day rate. You get paid for the days that they booked you regardless of whether you have stuff to do/waiting for client feedback, right? I’ve always done it this way bc technically you could have taken another job but have committed that time to them. Current gig keeps trying to get me to not bill and “take days off” while waiting for feedback. Just trying to see if this is as shitty as it feels.

Been passed over for promotion twice before and this year was the 3rd time. Luckily, I got it. Was in a dark space since I’m single, there’s covid and firm said “may not promote bc of covid” so went to therapy also because, single and cheated. Mentioned to coach(counselor) that I was nervous and anxious and had to take therapy. He said I should learn not to take things to heart. Ever since, started regretting mentioning about therapy. Should I have handled this a different way?
