Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around. I'm interested in data + analytics and would want to go into industry eventually, but conflicted because unlike BA programs at CapOne or Visa, you're still working for an external client. Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on

I'm 7 months in and doing a really bad job at my current project because I hate consulting and the job itself makes me really miserable. I feel really helpless and don't know what to do because the worse I do the worse opportunities I'll get at this firm later on and then I won't be able to leave. I've been interviewing with some other companies but no offers so far, afraid I won't get any because I'm leaving so soon. Truly feel so helpless and lost, I really want out.

First project here, not interested at all in the topic and not really caring for it but the WLB is amazing and the clients are super nice. 8 hr days, never any weekend work, manager is always supportive. But I have zero interest in this work and scared to move to something with worse WLB.
