The junior associates on my team made a gigantic mistake I could not fix in time (despite my best efforts). I feel like my head is going to roll because I was the senior associate shepherding the assignment for the three senior partners I work with. I am planning to reach out to the three partners to ask to debrief. But is there anything I can start thinking about or doing right away in case I do get fired in that convo? What do you wish you knew about getting fired?

Looking for advice: have an offer to start at PwC S& as a senior associate. However, I now have a 5 wk old daughter and am concerned about travel during and after the pandemic. Longer work hours, missing milestones, and news about recent layoffs at the firm also bother me. Have a stable and a bit boring job right now in Industry. So, is the move worth it? And for any parents, is it worth missing those early years and milestones for the possibility of increased pay?
