Industrials has better work-life balance, but it's like watching paint dry. TMT you'll get worked, but if you have the right CTL, it's not that bad and it's the most interesting work in my opinion. Healthcare - madness. Life sciences - not bad. Education- worked but the outcomes are fulfilling. Consumer - interesting, medium wbl. If you're in the part of EYP strategy that's not CDD or TSE, then it's more like traditional strategy where things ebb and flow - they get intense leading up to client meetings. But the support and tutelage in those parts of the business are not as strong - more sink or swim.

What’s your perspective on the nature of work at EYP vs what you’re currently doing? And have you considered trajectory of compensation as you progress?

I'm at a DD shop and would be doing DD at EYP. Comp long term would be better at EYP

This early in your career, I’d say yes take it

3 weeks

Why did you interview in the first place ? Seems like you just wasted time lol

Good insight

Now that I log off everyday at 5pm, there is no way in hell I would go back to EY hours. My mental health is better, my family life is better, I am happier and I lost 20 pounds. I used to log off at 8:30pm at EY and 10 during busy season.

Congrats on losing 20 pounds!

If you’re going to be doing DD here, you’re going to take a very bad hit on WLB. At best you’ll be finishing at earliest 10pm-11pm here, with very intense days

They are going to work you, but you’ll get better at it and used to it. I work 50-60 hours, but I’m mostly on DD’s. Take the offer I say

How much is ur offer.?

You ever feel like you're just failing to excel in consulting?

I just don't feel like I'm as good as my peers and don't know that I can get there.
