So quit! Life is short

It’s okay to quit. I did after 3 months because it was such a bad fit. One blip is explainable. Just don’t be bouncing around firms every 3 months.

What makes you want to quit the role?

Former big 4 Auditor and I felt 100% the same and like imposter syndrome to the max. Training did not help at all and got none/minimal feedback and felt like everyone was too busy to help and/or didn’t know either how to do what we were working on. So you’re not alone!!! (Contributed to me leaving within 6 months and changing careers though lol)

Given my increase in disposable income over the past 18 months, I’m thinking of upgrading my wardrobe. Im thinking of leveraging a trip to London this summer to tap into unique options, in particular “ready to wear” lines on Savile Row, that seem to be ~£1-1.5k (e.g., Dege & Skinner, Richard Anderson, Hunstman). Any experience with these? Specifically value for money, shopping experience, and whether ready to wear lines can help identify where to eventually get bespoke suits made.
