Does anyone else experience this - no matter what you do, the client isn’t happy? How do you stay motivated? I always review with my leads before presenting recommendations to the client to get sign off/feedback. I’ve been rated a top performer / received great feedback from 5 years of other clients and internal teams, so I don’t think it’s that I’m slacking

Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA
