Vulnerable post, please be kind
I am considering taking a leave of absence from a very stressful job. I don’t have support from management and they only seem to pile on the work.
I do work for a covered employer under FMLA. I struggle with the embarrassment to have to take this leave, feeling like I’m giving up and I’m weak for doing so. I can’t effectively do my job and my personal life is really suffering as well as my health. Can anyone share their experience taking leave due to stress?

How soon is too soon to quit a job? I took what seemed like a great offer, with competitive pay, a hybrid schedule, and 15% travel. However, I’m about 1.5 months in and the job is miserable. I’m working 50 hour weeks with no breaks to keep up with the demand, there is minimal training or support, I can’t work hybrid yet, I get 24/7 phone calls, and they’ve asked me to travel once a month for the remainder of the year. At this point, I’m only staying for fear of how it will look on my resume.

My 3 year old takes private swim lessons at the local school but his teacher that he’s known for 5 months found another job.

I ask him what’s going on and if the new teacher is mean, and he says no the new teacher is nice but he doesn’t like him...cont’d

How do your compare B4 and ZS partnership models. I am a 6th year B4 partner making $1.4M and ZS is offering slightly more ($1.55M) but a better role with more freedom to do what I really want to do. I really liked the people I met at ZS. With that said, I like our firm too but little annoyed by some politics in my group lately.

I recently did a scenario exercise on my life and in all scenarios I die at the very end. No sequel. So I did a five forces assessment, a growth share matrix and…still dead.

Or $10m each if I manage to hang around for a while. How have others handled this? Give it away? Create a GST? Wyoming trust? What are the tricks?

Career advice question. Currently AP / Principal in MBB. Have always performed strongly until a recent case crash with significant ramifications, meaning Partner promotion is probably delayed by 12-18 months. Not keen to wait so exploring options, e.g. with T-2 firms (EYP, S&).
What would be the best way to navigate the obvious question “why are you leaving MBB for us?”

Do revenue targets differ in your firm for partners/principals vs. MDs/EDs?

For tech partners:

The span of control, geo / sector spread, business size of a Tech Consulting Partner is much lesser as compared to a mid sized technology services company CEO. But the pay could be higher. How does it affect exit options of a partner? I'm starting to feel that one would get restricted to Big4 / ACN only (excluding FAANG for now). The possibility of CEO or a business head role seems to be out of question after first four years as a partner?

I normally rag on MBB, say we went to the same b-schools, it’s all just the same work, etc. I was just in a meeting with a McKinsey team and, wow, I was floored. In 4-weeks, two kids and a partner absolutely got to the heart of a problem my team has been trying to fix for 18 months. And then showed why fixing it was stupid. I can’t tell if I’m mad at them, mad at myself, or impressed. I think that’s their special cocktail 😂
