I never feel fully present when I’m around my family/SO/friends. I’m constantly checking my email and thinking about the assignments I “should” be working on. Is this my job or is this the profession?
How do you deal with a manager / junior partner who is always nitpicking and questioning why you did what you did, or telling you what you did is the wrong way to do things? It’s generally prefaced with them only doing this to help you grow, but has the exact opposite effect on me. And then when you try to explain your POV, you’re tagged as being defensive. Generally ends me with saying I’m sorry. No other partners at the firm have ever raised any concerns on my communications or work product.

Lateral from Accenture Consulting to KPMG advisory. Similar city, switching to equivalent career level. Initial offer has a matching salary but I think I can negotiate up. From what I’ve learned the work will be more interesting than what my current group focuses on at Acventure.
