Anyone who left big 4 for industry, what was your experience like since leaving? About to put my notice in, but also afraid of the unknown and scared to make a change..

Hi, I am first year associate working in B4 Audit.
I have been working almost a year. I am considering moving to a different career (Deal Advisory or related roles) but not sure I should move this year or next year when I get promoted to a senior.
I am not thinking about internal transfer because it seems harder than the internal transfer in my case.

Working moms: how did you do it? Want to start a family but can’t imagine it with my current work/life balance. Also the feeling of being set back after years of finally getting to the top.

Hot take: pass a 2 trillion dollar stimulus and give 20k each to the bottom 100M earners in America. This is a better option in my mind than having government workers line their pockets before the people get their pittance.

Advice for getting over feelings of jealousy? Also related for me, how can I learn to be indifferent to people I don’t like… rather than actively dislike them? I feel jealous feelings only when it’s someone I don’t like. I want to get over both feelings… learn to be truly indifferent to others. I try to tell myself I shouldn’t care, but so far I am yet to feel it. On the inside I do know it bothers me.

HR insight needed 🙏 my boss set a standing weekly meeting with me and I’m often stood up. Sometimes he apologizes later but often not. Sometimes it’s because he has booked another 1-on-1 team meeting over that time (so he saw it in his calendar). Eg: He’s standing me up now even though we’re both in the same small office AND I emailed+slacked earlier to confirm his availability (no answer).
It’s hard to NOT think this is intentional.
What might a professional, healthy response be to this?
