Deciding between staying at Bain (Currently an AC2, would likely stay through a few years post-MBA) or exiting to growth equity and/or VC. I like Bain, but I also feel like the door to investing roles closes after AC2 year. Thoughts?

SAC Here - check out the industry sponsorship option. After SAC year (as far as I’m aware no growth equity / VC doors are closed at that point), you can work for another firm for 2 years and then do an MBA (that Bain will pay for) and come back for at least 2 years after. It’s only binding until they pay for your MBA, so if you like your new VC job then just stay!

Leave. You shouldn’t care about sponsorship money - a couple of years in growth equity already equate that. Additional long term potential earnings in GE grossly outweigh that. Question is do you want to make the switch, and can you make the switch

Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!

A couple of years ago, I thought, why do I have to call the HELP desk? That IT guy doesn't understand a clinical workflow while using the EMR. So, I decided to start a real-time virtual peer to peer EMR support service called JustAskEvie. With the press of a button, a fellow physician superuser connects with you through a screen share and helps in real time. It's like Uber for EMR support. We started helping providers initially, then added nursing support. I wish I thought of this earlier.
