Some are gonna hate me for this but at what point did you realize that maybe I don’t want to be a partner and maybe this is just gonna take too much sacrificing for me to make it. In public accounting there’s a lot about work life balance this and that but I’ve never seen a partner not work all day. I’m not in public accounting anymore just curious on if any partners here ever thought to themselves that maybe being senior manager long term and making 150-200k wouldn’t have been so bad.

Correct thinking?
