Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback.

I was in this situation early in the year and I made commitments to “improve opportunity areas”, after another 4 months I came to realize that I am a walking target now, people formed negative opinion of me and won’t hesitant to jump to conclusion that minor hiccup is my fault, and as a result I get constantly thrown under the bus to make them feel good/protect their fav employees. Unless you are absolutely dedicated to learning this industry i’d recommend you find internal postings ASAP.

To all our friends in tax. I hope you’re well. I see you are all having a difficult week. You’re almost there. Always remember: the clients deeply appreciate your hard work and the integrity of the financial markets are yours to uphold and defend. If all else fails, DM me for referral. I will cry with you.

One is a PMM role too. 31, female in Boston if location maters at all when considering any of the above.

Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on.
