In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong? #Satire #DoesAnyoneElseFeelThisTypeOfDiscussionHappensWayToMuchHere? #WhyDoSoManyPeepsNeedValidation? Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?

Strategy& fish, do you know what the director base / bonus is? Is it comparable to similar roles at MBB?
Bad work life balance, mediocre pay, low odds of making partner, increasingly long road to partnership, little control over the projects you’re staffed on, independence requirements, this list could go on. Is the Big 4 really worth it... I am increasingly thinking it’s not.

Met a Wharton guy yesterday, he said I should change jobs at least once before applying since most of his classmates did more than 1 job. He recommended going to a startup for at least 1 year.

Is a switch from IT Audit (b4) to Product Management (industry) role a good move? C1. Significant pay bump as well.
I’ve been proposed an exit as Product Owner at a real company, not a consulting one. Staff seems nice, good culture, good salary (less than consulting but well), BUT I would have to move countries for that job and start a new life. I’ve also been proposed a Manager position at a consulting company in my home city, with potential of bigger salary thanks to bonuses. Culture seems good... But I’m sure it’s gonna be a hell lot of work. Which one would you take? Should I exit and never look back?
