Rethink your definition of what you want to get out of work. Most industry roles won’t be as demanding and stressful as consulting. You’ll finally have a life outside of work so you’ll need to figure out what that means for you

I just recently left big 4 in July to pursue a role at a fintech company. It seemed great during the interview but once I got here it was very unorganized, not clear which team I would support, etc. Long story short, I was told we would have a hybrid work schedule and we are now required to go in-office full time 5 days a week and there have been a ton of layoffs recently. Should I stick it out or look for something else even though I’ve only been here 2 months?

I was offered a position at Deloitte for ~26k more than I’m making currently, but they told me that in 2.5 years when the contract is over I will be out of a job. Obviously I’ll be able to network within those two years and probably find something more permanent, so it’s very similar to gig work at BAH. I also just started a new project at BAH last month so I feel uneasy leaving after a month. Can someone at Deloitte give me more insight about PDM work at the company?

After the call, I started looking into them and there seemed to be a lot of fake 5 star reviews and pretty consistent negative reviews. Cont…

I shifted from Consulting over to a CSM role and am finding that even though I’m in a better place culture and pay wise, I’m feeling every day social anxiety that comes with a customer-facing role, making me think I’m not cut out for this and that I should move to something more internal, like corporate strategy. My worry is if I make this type of move, a paycut will always have to follow. Has anyone else felt this and can offer some advice?

Just joined a smaller firm who uses Paychex for their 401k provider. I noticed they do not offer too many options for funds to invest in and seems lower end than my prior Schwab 401k offered. 1) Anyone have experience with Paychex and have similar observations? 2) I’m leaning towards doing enough 401k pretax contribution on Paychex to get the company match and then do the rest as a Roth IRA to obtain better investments. Any other options I’m not thinking of?
