I currently make 60LPA in Hyderabad and my firm has an offer for 150k in Chicago. Is it worth? I am generally happy with the package in India and have good savings as I own my house in Hyderabad and I am not a lavish spender.

Is it normal for a Partner to tell me “you know this will delay your promotion by 6 months” a day before my STD for mental health reasons? (P.S. He assumed I took the leave for mental health reasons although I never mentioned that to him).

Hi , I am currently working with aditya birla sunlife insurance as a cluster manager(Sales Manager) . I had done my MBA in marketing. So would be opened for any good opportunity in other markets or as in insurance also. If incase training option are there, it would be good for me.
On this day 6 months ago, I left my prior firm. I’m still in consulting but no more waking up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, no more conversations with my gf about how my working hours and stress are affecting our relationships, no more interventions hosted by friends who are worried about me, and no more financial issues. I would have quit after bonus payouts even if nothing had been lined up. Luckily I found something. I’m in a pensive mood - life is good 😊
Relatively new post-MBA hire here and I’m having second thoughts about getting into consulting. I miss my old industry gig and the predictability it brought (ironically the reason I pivoted).
