Any thoughts on exit to AmEx? It would be a ~25% pay cut, but I’m burnt out and positive that I don’t ever want to make partner at a consulting firm (the stress, the continual worry of having to sell and then staff projects, the partners I see always being on, etc). I also however do not want to dead end my career…

Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation .

I think my friend is about to make a huge mistake and I need additional arguments for why the following is a bad idea: friend got an offer as an associate at an AmLaw 1000 firm (similar to Polsinelli) and an offer as a staff attorney at a non-market V100. Because the staff attorney firm is more prestigious, friend is leaning that way. I’ve been trying to tell them it’s a terrible idea since it’ll be hard to get another associate role after that.
