Had a serious post partum emotions discussion with my husband yesterday and cried a ton, being honest with how I was feeling.

Having coffee now and so grateful

Hello MBB squids, I need your valuable advice. I am on course to getting an offer from Mck for the role of Data Analyst. Salary negotiations are pending. I also have a pretty neat offer from a tech product company for a role of consultant. If the Mckinsey compensation is almost similar to the product company, should I go for mckinsey ? I am in two minds because it's an Analyst role with no customer facing. Will that still add value to my career ? Also please advice on career path for Analyst

I know people say to not chase money but I’ve been in the industry for about 5 years (all in NYC at big old agencies) and I’ve never made anything of note. A senior position recently came up at another large agency that I don’t think will lead to great work… but it comes with a pay raise from 85 to 140. I’m in my late 30s and I’m tired of feeling like I’m not getting ahead financially. But sometimes I feel like a failure for not making a lot of cool work like my classmates from ad school.
