I am a director at PwC making good $$. I am so bored and done with audit that I want a change which includes 1) good health benefits and 2) remote work 100% with 9-5 hours. I am more than happy to take big pay cut, ok to make around 100k which is 50% cut. Please suggest some good jobs guys. Can be audit or not, doesn’t matter.

I’m 43 and joined consulting from industry 1-year ago as a director. I work in healthcare. I am really struggling with the endless EOD emails, taking direction from people I don’t respect, and not seeing the actual value we deliver to the client. I’m applying left and right to leave. Any suggestions on how to “learn to love my job” so it’s not so painful? I don’t want to spend every hour of my life filled with anxiety and dread until my next opportunity develops.

My job was affected by COVID. I’m have a T20 MBA, closing in on two final round interviews one for a well know pharma consulting firm and the other for F 500 healthcare company as a regional ops director. I like both companies equally but looking to taking a shot at MBB in the next two years. Any advice?

Looking at exits into pharma and biotech. Have an opp at a biotech at the SM level. Total comp excluding equity is around $190k; RSUs vest over 4 years with annual refreshers, so first year equity would be around $6,200 and it would go up by $6,200 each of the next 3 years, plus whatever base bump I get. Very good benefits package. They envision 2-3 years before I jump either to AD or right to D. Solid opp? Or hold out to go straight to director level?

Recently promoted Deloitte SM in GPS/C&M (TC - approx. $225K for those who care :)). In the market to switch to Healthcare industry at a Director level. Accenture and others are ringing my phone off the hook. Accenture is offering SM level. Does it make sense to give up 10 years worth of network in Deloitte to go to a comparable firm for some raise and start over with no network? Or, should I stick to my original goal of switching over to the industry for a better W/L Balance?
