Steven has worked at the same consulting company for the past seven years. When he started, he was a single man out to prove that he deserved to be on the partner track at his firm. Over the course of the seven years, he got married, moved to a bigger house in the suburbs, and recently had his first child.
He’s never complained about his job or the money he made, but he’s noticing that things are starting to shift at the firm. The partners are nervous about their ability to grow business in the slowing economy and the pressure is mounting for Steven and his co-workers to do more in less time.
