My roommate’s gf left MBB for PE and I’m guessing the WLB is better now because I see her at our apartment more and she goes out with us more than she did before lol

like

True, but I’m just going based off of that observation. I’m pretty sure she hasn’t traveled for work since March 2020 before shutdown. She left MBB in September-ish 2020, so she’s been WFH for both jobs roughly the same amount of time with no travel

Ops team is generally better. Less sprinting for client deliverables.

For me it’s been better

Depends on the funds - there are some where WLB will tank, others you might see a slight improvemenr

Sorry for asking, what is PE?

6 interviews. SIX. And they could not understand my role through all the situations they asked me to tell them.
I could have lied, of course. But for what?
Sometimes I think it’s just better like that. There is a reason for everything, and for rejections too. I do only feel sorry for all the time lost to actually prepare and do 6 interviews.
These kind of processes are really draining.
