Partners are easy targets, but it’s actually not that amazing - most work constantly, are under a tremendous amount of revenue pressure and it’s incredibly political. There’s a reason why they are compensated well. Recommendation - treat everyone, regardless of level with respect and you’ll do great! Welcome to consulting!

Is it a bad look as a senior associate (on the path to manager within a year) to be driving an expensive car like a C7 or C8 corvette that is $70k+? I don’t think it is and here’s my rationale. I’m making over 6 figures, maxing out my 401k and IRA accounts with extra $ going to a brokerage account, I have a 3BR 1300 sq foot home with finished basement and garage for $170k. My two loans are only $240k combined. Heck most people spend more on a house alone. Work remote so vette isn’t daily driver.

How does a person know when it’s time to take a step back career wise and get a job that gives them more free time?

Feel like a square peg that’s being forced into a round slot, but the long term opportunity and money potential keeps me here and am brainwashed into thinking I can only be successful by staying. Any advice?
