I second S1. Doing the work I like and billing for it. Not on the promotion treadmill and don’t have to deal with that, while maintaining and extending my connections at the firm. Also don’t have to do internal initiatives.


Not a step down to become an independent management consultant, LLC. GTFO you’ll love it.


Agreed. I got out of B4 after I was told they wanted me to be a career SM. I doubled my $$


if you can afford to in many different ways, then yes, piece of mind in a normal work environment is very much worth it




Serious q - why do you think your work environment is toxic?

Is it something you can ignore? Our pays in consulting are quite good and worth taking some $hit for

I would like to take a step down but that would also mean a sep down in pay

What to do for a spouse who is struggling emotionally but refuses to get professional help?
I’m 17 weeks pregnant with our first. My husband is really struggling with emotional/ mental health. I’ve asked him to consider counseling or other medical alternatives. Instead, he wants to talk to me until 11:30 pm or 12 am at night. I want to be there for him but I can’t. I’m tired. I’m still working VERY full time, and I was just diagnosed with early onset preeclampsia 😫
