Got messaged by a recruiter who said she works for a large fintech company and wanted to set up time to chat. Personally, I don’t like to go into recruiting calls blind so I asked if she could provide the name of the company and a job description, to which she said she can’t really give any additional details at this point in time. Is it normal for recruiters to do this? Or does it mean the role / company isn’t that good? I don’t want to waste 15-20 minutes of both of our times if possible.

I have this constant feeling of doing something better then what I am doing now. Bigger role, better pay, more growth, higher impact .... is what my brain is consumed with all the time. It’s not new, I have been feeling like this for as long as I remember ... even when I was in school. Although it has served me well so far career wise, but sometimes I feel that I missing out on my present life... does anyone feel like this too? I am not sure if this normal. I am in mid-40s, in case that matters.

I romanticized being a consultant while working in industry. Then I got a consulting job, a couple promos, and now the idea of consulting just makes me roll my eyes. I love the pay and I don’t mind working hard, w/ long hours, but the “business of consulting” is exhausting (e.g. maintaining utilization, selling engagements, 6k iterations of a deck, etc). Great company, great co-workers, and interesting engagements.... I can’t be the only one feeling this way. Time to exit or is this a phase?
