Anyone who has participated at the PLD program from HBS? I’m considering applying (10 years of experience at PE), but I’m still wondering whether an EMBA would be better a choice. It’s an expensive program, especially considering most of it is online based, but I could get my employer to pay for a large part of it. I’m attracted by the network and soft skills training offered by the program. Any comments/experiences would be highly appreciated!
Finally managed to receive an offer from my dream firm today. Now I’m intimidated and doubt I’ll be able to perform up to the expected level. I don’t feel like they gained a good picture of who I am / challenged me enough during the interview process. How to find out if I’m ready for the new job?
Had a final round interview today where I believe 3/4 of them went really well. The call with the manager was okay - they didn’t seem as engaged. Will this hinder me?

In a tough spot. Recently joined a company and I regret it. I left consulting for better wlb but I’m now working the same amount. I am interviewing for a role within a university which sounds more easy going. If I leave my current company, I’d have to pay back my sign on bonus (5k). But I just feel so stressed out all the time and was recently diagnosed with depression & had to go on medication (already in therapy). I don’t know what to do. Do I stick it out? Do I continue to interview?

A recruiter pushed me really hard to take an interview but I really just wasn’t that interested in the firm. When I said that I wasn’t sold and wouldn’t be interviewing, they became upset and called me unprofessional, and name dropped my managing partner saying that they expected better from my firm. I was like, it’s quite rich to bring up my partners when you’re literally poaching me from them. Was I needlessly nasty?
