Feeling a little lost. Playing the manager role on a project and leading a team of 7. I report directly into an associate partner but running the entire client engagement on my own. I feel like I am not learning anything from them, no mentorship or guidance. I feel like I haven’t grown at all in the past 6-8 months. I’m someone who learns by doing. How can I grow and learn? 😭

Spent 10y in Big 4 mainly in US and Europe. Interviewing for Associate Partner position with an MBB in SE Asia. Would a ~5y stint in the region be an asset if I wanted to return back to US but remain with the hiring firm? Or is it a rabbit hole?

So the Promo Board just approved my promo to Associate Partner. It will be effective as of Jan 2. Do you think that recruiters and hiring mgrs will find it sketchy if I applied for new jobs in Jan?

I’m in a really good position at my firm - leading sales, huge internal initiatives, have greats sponsorship to make Managing Director in the next few years and have a good upward career in the structure. While I have thus far been very successful with sales, the “way the sausage is made” around selling, over promising, solutions that don’t align with my personal world view (ie unneeded mass labor reductions) are starting to chafe.
