If you’re laid off at 40 for exactly that reason, you were probably an imposter the whole time.

Where are these agencies laying off people at 40? All the best CDs are over 40.

The client is very important to the firm. But Im done, there’s no other option. Please help, im really going crazy and can’t be there for another month.

25M I feel like I really screwed up. I left consulting (promoted there) last year to join an early stage startup. Got laid off during covid and joined an emerging PE fund, however the PE fund doesn’t have cash on hand to retain another person. So lost not sure what to do. This all happened since last October. Any thoughts

Folks that exited from Big 4 to MBB: do you regret it? Despite moving to a great firm like McK, having second thoughts about the decision due to the long hours and constant hustle to prove myself again. Don’t see myself staying in consulting forever, and have already been in consulting for 3.5 years. Any advice from folks that have done this? Can’t help but feel I should’ve kept looking for a FAANG exit rather than consulting.
