Finding it extremely difficult to stay motivated. I feel exhausted from the hours and even less motivated when I find out how much of a variance there is in comp. How did ppl know when to go private?

When they have enough of all this PA BS like long hours, high pressure, low comp, subpar benefits...

Agreed. But finding the right private job seems so difficult. I see people who fake it till they make it landing excellent jobs. So jealous

This is probably a dumb question but please bear with me as I’ve never been outside of big 4- do you still get exposure to large F500 firms at advisory practices in non-big 4 firms? I am thinking RSM, Protiviti, BDO.. etc. Is the career opportunity / compensation very different?

The site doesn’t give much details into WLB, specific duties and projects (does mention they focus on the financial industry), and benefits, but I did see one of their Consultants took a title cut (Sr. Consultant at IBM) to go there.
