For 🐠 that have been apart of the Great Resignation, how long were you at your new job before you felt good about the switch? Did you go through a period of second guessing your decision to leave?

Don’t worry, everyone always second guesses, and usually it goes away after a few months. This is a standard human condition, not just for work

3 years. Should have left sooner

What role did you move into and where?

1.5 years. Left because audit sucks. I found a better gig doing consulting elsewhere…. I think the key is not to leave just to leave. Think about the long term career and what you want to achieve 5-10 years down the future. And try to align those career goals with your a drawn out path

smart

Ah I left audit after 1.5 years and I’m currently two months in the new consulting gig. I really evaluated the position before proceeding with it. While I’m only two months in I’m glad I took it. Parts of me sometimes thinks I regret just because “the grass is always greener” but that always quickly passes by. It would probably take me a full year to really evaluate whether I like this or not before deciding to do something else again

1 year. Made the decision 2 months in. Never second guessed my self just wanted to wait a year but honestly should have stated applying sooner.

Serious Question - if you could have your pick of any company (not industry) in the world to work at, what would it be?

likeupliftingfunny

How do you handle peers asking you to send over successful work (financial models or slides you have worked ages on) so they can ‘use the structure’. Also known as getting all the praise without giving any credit. In my team sharing is caring, but in the end your peers are also your competitors in a way. Furthermore its just pissing me off as I like to learn new things and figure stuff out myself. Any advice?

At the low levels (analyst / associate), are the goals of the firm inherently contrary to your goals as a rising professional (exposure, experiences in areas of interest, flexibility)?
