So sad. The winner is actually the loser

I was in IB/Equities before this consulting gig and people there talk about making $10k/day or $17 million the year before. No matter how rampant the douchebaggery was, they had real money to show for. When I hear these kind of stuff in our industry, I'm like bitch please, y'all get paid the same amount regardless working 40 or 80. It's like they're in a dick measuring contest, albeit long and thick nobody can even get them hard enough to actually fuck.

There's a point at which performance gets worse and you look like a loser, even to your bosses. Not to mention the health effects from overwork, and the fact that beyond a certain point, your bonus won't be bigger anyway.

I cannot stress the importance of having a good line manager. Mine is weak and always asks what I’m interested in and then doesn’t bother supporting me in exploring those areas or connect me to the right people. They haven’t been promoted in years which is a red flag - I’ve subsequently watched my juniors get promoted above me. Get someone who will fight your corner.

I’m coming back to work from maternity leave soon. The daycares I’m on the waitlists for won’t have an opening for 2 more months after that. What do you think is the best set up for the 2 interim months without daycare? Hire a nanny to come to the house (convenient but SO expensive), or do a flex arrangement with reduced hours? I’m leaning towards the flex arrangement and either trying to work early in the day and then watching the baby while my husbands at work. Any thoughts or experiences?

I know it will likely be that I need to “stick it out” for a few more years, but I am just extremely dissatisfied with the prospect of being at a firm for years.
