8 years in engineering and then project management (not software) and now a year as an Associate at McK. What are my options? I really don’t have a good frame of reference.

Welcome to PwC

I'd apply for Microsoft and shape a story to suit that.

Program Management being the goose I'd shoot for with your background.

Depends on what you did those eight years of engineering and during your pm and McK respective years.

That would tell you which program manager position / team within Microsoft to aim for

Are you out of Mckinsey or can you make EM? If so I’d make EM then shoot for Director or senior director role in tech

Still at McK but honestly don’t want to be an EM.

It is mostly just odd I’m not super offended, but I’m also clearly uninterested!

I’m a single parent and mid-level associate, and have been struggling with the increased expectations from pandemic-level work. I do not have the luxury of a full-time nanny, maids or stay-at-home spouses like most of the partners I work with and the expectation that I be available 24/7 (and on zoom) is impossible to keep up with lately. Work was manageable pre-pandemic (and I really enjoyed it) but these new expectations seem unsustainable. Anyone else in the same boat? How are you managing?

I don’t have the option of simply quitting, but contemplating switching to a true 9-5, no-stress job, possibly out of law, while they’re young. But that’s scary.
