The only complications is you probably don’t have the relevant experience so may have to make a lateral move or take a slight cut (depending on what company you really want). Coming in at senior may be hard

Of course with the exception that i had a real bad break-up with my fiancé 6 months ago. And i dont have any symptoms of depression, but there are days when i just feel like what is all this for?

Just received an offer for 95k base as a staff analyst at EY. Currently in industry (finance) my TC last year was just under 100k. Not thrilled as EY’s benefits are worse than my current firm and TC is likely to be the same. I’m not happy at my current firm and I know this isn’t the norm but EY seems to have a better WLB. What do people think about the offer? EY rep seems to think there is not a lot of flexibility to negotiate, this seems to be near the top. Should I ask for a signing bonus?

Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc

Livid & need to vent. Had a call with a client, I am the attorney that manages their cases. A male attorney was on the call with me as well. I try to explain something to client multiple times and he keeps cutting me off to explain his question again (even though I am answering the question but for the interruptions). Male attorney jumps in and explains exactly same of what I am saying, male client listens intently, no interruptions, then essentially ignores me the rest of the call. Raaaaage 🤬
