Graduated last yr from a target and have a year of industry experience, I’m starting the process for McKinsey’s generalist. I’ve always wanted to move back to the west coast. However, I can’t seem to figure out which office to apply for and I’ve been “stuck” for about two weeks as my referral is waiting for my input. Could anyone give me insights of the culture, partner leadership and office size for the West coast offices, mainly Seattle, LA and Bay Area?
Graduated in 2014 and worked for a large consultancy. Moved to Look Kpmg because of the culture. Love it but only make 82k. Underpaid? I'd instated at the other firm - peers making 85-95k. 🙁
Hey all - I currently work as PM at a NY agency. However, I went to school in Boston and my partner is from the North Shore. We’re thinking about making the move back to Boston early next year. Does anyone have an insight into the ad industry in Boston? What’s it like? Are agencies hiring? How’s the culture? If anyone has worked in NY as well I’d love to hear about how the two cities are different from an ad industry perspective.

Would it be okay if I share a quick positive update? Thank you to all in this group that have supported me & sent well wishes. Today I received an offer - 40% increase, move to industry, permanently remote & seem to be a great wlb & team culture. Ironically last month to this exact day, I had put in my 2 weeks notice at my formal company without a backup plan. Grateful I took the leap to put my mental health first & step out on chance. It wasn’t the smartest decision but it worked out. https://joinfishbowl.com/post_sc847e5bhq

I’m considering leaving Big Law, but worried that I’ll regret it 5/10/20 years down the line because of all the money I’d lose out on. But with that said, I’m not sure that the partners I work for seem happy anyway and I’m equally aware that I could regret prioritizing money 5/10/20 years down the line as well - there seems to be diminishing returns with money after a point. I know this comes down to personal contingencies but I’d be Happy to hear advice, anecdotes, thoughts and musings.

So close to quitting my job but I’m worried how it’ll look on my resume. I’m 6 months in and my manager is driving me crazy. 1) They are a micromanager. 2) does not review work when I send it. & 3) flips up whenever we’re behind on deadlines b/c they didn’t review the work. I don’t want to say I sent you x document on y day and you didn’t review it anytime they’re losing it. But I’m so torn. Sunday, night, I’m down with a flu & they’re on email right now losing it. What to do?
