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


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.

This is looking great!

Yeah you're right. It cuts after two lines instead of expanding.

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


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)?


I'm not a rich man, but is 250k a lot of money? Sure in some parts yes, but not in major cities. If u make that much on ur own, ur doing well. But it's not hard to make that with dual income. (Cont.)


Three-word horror story.


As a father of newborn with full time nursing wife, I can never look at boobs the same way ever again. My views transformed from boobs as sexy hidden things to respect and ones with purpose.

Team dinner sparked an interesting conversation: What do you think the largest problems are going to be 10-15 years from now?


Best way to break into the art of golf at 23? Never really exposed to it and it's a useful thing to pick up.


Just interviewed a potential resource (level 9 consultant) for a role on my project. Client was present and noticed the person was very likely being coached during the interview. My Sr Mgr and I...


Fishbowl fam... I need your prayers. I'm stuck at a client city (DC) waiting for a flight and my mom is in the ICU in my hometown fighting to live. Appreciate all your prayers. 😭 ✈️
