In all honesty, I understand people are leaving Big 4 right now because they have decent exit ops or better WLB ops, but what about people working at small/boutique firms making $100-105k as a SC/M? Is it worth it to join a Big 4 if you can potentially get a 20-30% pay increase, i.e. is the increase in salary worth the headache and travel?Deloitte Accenture PwC EY

Recently lateralled to a new firm and I have mild “PTSD” from my old firm 😶 everything from the way docs are saved on the system, file naming, email writing style, team conventions etc - I keep thinking any small mistake would get me yelled at / be at the receiving end of snarky or passive aggressive emails but people at my new firm are so lovely and far from that. I’m trying really hard to move past this and my new colleagues are probably getting sick of my questions 😂 Anyone else can relate?

Is it really worth it? When I think about having a kid I get sooooo much anxiety. I fear: the extra pressure on a relationship, the cost, the decision to keep working vs quit the job, the possibility of the kid having a lifelong disorder, the physical act of being pregnant, the act of giving birth, not having any time for myself, making an 18+ year commitment, the kid turning out terrible & blaming myself, making all the decisions on how to parent, & more. Does/did anyone else feel the same?
