Potential agency boomerang having a hard time making a decision to stay brand-side or go back. Need some advice! Do I leave the brand, being "the client," fun work, great WLB, as well as the most toxic work environment I've ever experienced and meh pay? Do I go back to agency lead a new team with significant responsibilities, forget about WLB, sell my soul alongside smart people, get great pay and benefits? PS: I'm a mom and brand-side for 5 years. What do I need to know!? Thank you!

Thoughts on part-time check-the-box MBA? I’’ 32, and am on track for promotion to SM. I can’t justify doing a part-time MBA at a top school and taking on all the debt. An MBA has always been a goal of mine, and some state schools provide an affordable price tag but I’m not sure if it’s worth it at all if it’s not a top 20 school.
A question I can’t seem to find a good thread about: How often do you interview? I really like my current position. I have great WLB, a great team, and a lot of good exposure to an industry that’s growing fast. I don’t have many complaints at all. That being said I feel like I need to interview to stay sharp in playing “the game” of my career. Do you all respond to every LinkedIn message? At the beginning of my career I think it’s really helpful to know my worth by interviewing. Thoughts?
I have 50k in my 401k account and I am planning to move back to India by next year, I plan to be vested in the 401k for long term, hopefully till maturity. In that case, when I withdraw my 401k amount after 30 years will I be liable to pay taxes in India or USA?and will it make sense to convert the 401k to roth IRA?

Seems like corporate America finds mandatory vaccination as good business.
Hi friends! I know mental health is very private but wondering if anyone on here has been diagnosed bipolar and would be willing to speak to me? Best friend has been diagnosed and is swinging very fast between manic & depressive states while their doctors find the right balance of medication & therapy. Want to understand how I can best support especially in the extreme lows where they have darker thoughts & feel very confused about “why” this is happening. Would appreciate any help at all!

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
I can’t tell if I’m slowly being rolled off my engagement or not. I’m being put on a lot of other engagements at the moment. I like the engagement that I’m on. How can I figure this out without coming across as paranoid? Nobody has told me I’m doing a bad job or anything like that.
