It’s because when the previous client’s employee left, he recommended to hire some professionals from our agency.

Should I apply for this position even client offered the same position to three of us?

I am in a very toxic account. They tend to blame their miscommunication or lack of communication of materials to the creative teams who are working on the projects. Weirdly though the Creative teams and accounts still manage a very good relationship which I don’t know if it’s only on the surface level. In every project that I lead, none of my account teams keep me posted on any updates that I affects my project yet blames it all to me for not asking. I really want to quit but am I weird?

I don’t really face clients except on Zoom, and even post-Covid I don’t see that changing due to the nature of our meetings.

Would love to hear people’s thoughts.

Considering two career pathways - one with KPMG as a entry level associate starting about 70k in IT risk consulting. Don’t think it’s the most fun job. The other is sales engineering in a software service company starting 85k and in 1-2 years jump to 150k+ if I do well. When can I expect to make that with KPMG? Seems like KPMG is the safer route and good to have on the resume vs high risk high reward. Any insight into either path?
