Great exit opportunity to a national NGO to lead their transformation COE. $ marginally less than what I make now, but overall better WLB. 5 weeks vacation, 15 sick days, reduced summer hours & they're looking to see if they can give me the extra 30k to pay back my signing bonus (since I'm leaving Acn within the year). It sounds amazing and meaningful work! A tiny part of me has Stockholm syndrome and nervous leaving Acn...

Have an offer in industry. It’s a relatively new company that is growing fast and lots of opportunity to move up quickly and make a difference.

Follow my passion or stay in the safe zone given things are still up in the air with Covid? I appreciate your opinion fishes!

I need out of M&A. I like the people, I like the work, I even like most of the clients, but my health can’t take the fire drills.

We have resource but nobody with enough deal knowledge so it’s two people trying to get everything out while two first years wait on our instructions but can’t do much.
