Has anyone here pivoted into tech and regretted it?

I’m curious about this as well, I’m hoping to make a pivot from FP&A soon.

Not me, but I'm sure there are a variety of experiences out there. I've found that there is a lot of variety to the roles in tech, whether or not you are necessarily an engineer. So your options to move around are broad, in my opinion.

I too would like to know... 👣

2nd year associate here been with bcg for about 2 years (one promo under my belt), got an offer from a high growth tech startup thinking about exit right after bonus hits. salary about the same, job is interesting, better wlb, however (significantly) slower career trajectory. Tbh my experience at bcg has been mixed I learned a lot but not particularly enjoying the job (my feedbacks are on target, no issues there)

I feel ho-hum about the government job because I’ve been doing it for so long, and also the option for hybrid work is uncertain. But the salary and benefits are obviously appealing.

Any thoughts, especially from those in private consulting?

Does having dinner with colleague with the opposite gender = having a date in the workplace? I was reading some news about Bill Gates and found it is being implied this way.

I am not interested in Bill Gate’s story - this is a general question about what is appropriate in workplace. It’s common to have working lunch with colleagues (sometime two people with opposite genders in a small team) in consulting (especially pre-COVID), but it looks like “dinner” has quite a different meaning?
