FWIW, I tried to leave at the one year mark but wasn’t thrilled with the exit ops because the roles I was getting interviews for were roughly at the same level I could’ve gotten straight out of mba. Stuck it out to 2 years and I’m glad I did; just got 2 offers this week that I’m happy with.

Yes, left early and so have others. Different reasons and career trajectories but nobody I know regrets it

I know several people that have left after one year. Recruiters start reaching out pretty immediately after you start

Interesting. May I ask why you are asking this

Would also like to know—or won’t 1 year be enough learning to count?
