I’m an investment banking summer analyst at a major bank. I have an autoimmune disease and tend to get very sick very easily, especially when working long hours. I didn’t bring this up in the interview or hiring stages because I didn’t want it to disqualify me, and I hoped it wouldn’t be an issue, but the hours are really hurting my health. What should I do? I worked hard to get where I am, so I’d like to stay in IB if I can, but my health is obviously important too. Should I talk to my manager?

I’m interviewing for accounting manager with a pre-revenue company, it will start generating revenue this year, and has plan for IPO. I have total 7 years public accounting experience. How does $130k +10% bonus in Los Angeles sound, as I’m relocating from a lower COL? All jobs have risks, I know stability and staffing can be an issue. What other risks I should consider? TIA

A couple months ago I got passed over for an internal role, afterwards my manager said she’ll develop a plan for me to get promoted on our current team and we’ll revisit during mid-years. I just got an external offer that I want, would it look bad to accept after interviewing internally then making a promotion plan? I don’t want to burn bridges.

When I interviewed, I literally said “EY is the place I want to retire at” (and I genuinely meant it). When I was staff, I thought I would quit after I make SM for a few years. Now as a Senior 3 everyday - “I hate my job. I won’t get promoted to Manager next year. I hate my life. When can I quit??”

If a position for which I had a first round interview has since been put on hold, would it be reasonable to ask for an informational interview with the would-be hiring manager? In my experience, "on hold" has always been synonymous with cancelled. It’s frustrating and I like this particular agency, so I just want to make the most of this. Maybe there are other ways to handle these situations?
