This is incorrect - it started as a management consulting firm that applied accounting principles to its consulting work

Pretty much all legacy firms come out of accounting in some way, shape or form.

McKinsey wasn’t a tax/audit firm like the legacy Big8, but these firms tend to come out of that or have spun from another firm.

How do entrepreneurs deal with burnout? A colleague of mine recently reached out to me to share that he was experiencing some burnout and lack of motivation. I shared that I feel the same, but off and on. I was wondering how others deal with this? I was telling him that I was thinking about taking time off to do a fellowship to experience something new or simply taking a few months off. Any thoughts?

My firm just hired a new, young (male) associate. He was barred a couple years before me (a May 2020 grad/barred Jan 2021) but did unrelated legal work for one year, then worked at another plaintiff’s firm for a year before making the jump. So he has some relevant firm experience, but the other firms’ operations are different. Anyway, I basically have to do both of our work, and he’s sooooo casual about it too. I partially feel like he can only get away with this due to workplace sexism. (1/2)

Considering two career pathways - one with KPMG as a entry level associate starting about 70k in IT risk consulting. Don’t think it’s the most fun job. The other is sales engineering in a software service company starting 85k and in 1-2 years jump to 150k+ if I do well. When can I expect to make that with KPMG? Seems like KPMG is the safer route and good to have on the resume vs high risk high reward. Any insight into either path?
