Hi, I'm Steve, I'll be the partner on this project. When I joined PwC 5 years ago after finishing my undergrad at MIT, I never imagined the great projects I'd get to work on. Also, I need to leave early, my wife is headlining Miami Fashion Week that starts tonight. So glad she sent the jet back up here."

Taking p1's idea, "I am really passionate about consulting industry as it challenges me to reach higher everyday, my roommate at MIT and I, both having PHDs, joined workforce at the same time 2 years ago and I am a director while he is still at manger level."

At a T2 firm and constantly doing 60+ hours a week but a lot of it is just responding to client BS. I am still fairly junior so wondering a switch to commercial law makes sense. I know they work a lot harder, but does anyone have a more tangible figure & what kind of job they would be doing?

Starting to realise that I would rather have a specialty in something and thinking deeply about the problem rather than constantly leveraging someone else's expertise.

I'm losing my mind. I desperately want to roll off my project, I hate it, gives me anxiety. But i signed a contract about a year and half ago to buy a new build home & won't be starting the underwriting process until the home is done some time in Sep. My lender/RE Agent said I can change jobs as long as I make the same or more. I can have a one month gap between jobs. As a senior analyst, 3 YOE overall, is it too risky to quit? I can't handle it anymore & i don't think I'll be able to roll off.
