I feel this way a lot. I’ve been working 7 years, and often I feel my promotions have outpaced my maturity, skill set. But I sort of realize they outpace the maturity and skill set I want to have to manage certain situations more than that they outpace what I see in my peers.

Personally, I am developing a meditation practice, working with a therapist on my anxiety, working with mentors to understand their journeys and boundaries, and working with my husband on setting up our life in a way that makes me feel balanced even if that may at times mean slowing down at work. I hope to get these feelings in check as I continue to outpace expectations and expect more promotions to come unless I make some serious changes. I received a top rating again in 2019, and I know more responsibility is sliding my way.

In college I ran an event production company. We ran events for major brands at conventions, and it was extremely overwhelming being the person responsible for keeping all the tech running, or telling the client something broke.

When I started in consulting, it definitely felt good to be (for once) being spared from having the hard conversations with clients, and insulated from having the final responsibility for the outcome.

There were definitely times where I like being the analyst, but I think that you can grow out of the overwhelmed phase.

Hi all, I have a solid background in social media, but have also dabbled in paid media, SEO, etc. I thought having a lot of skills would open more doors for me to get out of social… but now it seems I’m not specific enough based on jobs I’m seeing and my lack of interviews.

Has anyone dealt with stuffing allocation in a non-hedge fund context? It seems even in the HF world the law is fuzzy in using aggregate reverse 704c principles in stuffing allocations.

If we are talking asset class that isn’t really like marketable securities but might be able to treat it similarly solely by virtue of, say, valuation on a quarterly basis (contd)

1) tremendous WLB and people centric approach - people centric is not lip service.
2) pay is more than competitive and growth has been great -
3) you make a real impact on clients.

Quick poll: List your gender & a quick sentence on whether you like to work for male or female bosses (ok to say no preference).

This is not intended to offend anyone. Just genuinely looking to learn and grow.
