Hi everyone,
Currently considering a move to Toronto from London, either to a business analyst or consulting role. Wondering what the hours are like compared to the uk? Doing an ~50 hour a week on average and wondering if it’s significantly higher. Know America is typically even more than that but not sure how Canada stacks up. Any advice really appreciated.

Canada is way more chill than the U.S. (unless you get on a US project).
50 is probably in line with what most people do.

It's slightly better pay in Canada after conversion, but not much. Maybe 5-10% better.

In my school periods are 42 minutes long. By the time kids arrive to class and get settled, I have 38 on-task minutes, at best. It is impossible to get through the curriculum without leaving most kids in the dust so we pick and choose which standards to emphasize and which are expendable. Problem is compounded by the fact that the teachers in prior grades have the same problem, so kids reach me without foundation knowledge and skills. Have tried many strategies. Suggestions???

I know this isn’t the right forum for this, but I’ve run out of options. My brother struggles with severe depression (and/or other things, he won’t get diagnosed) and he won’t seek help. What to do?

Received my first recruiter call, went well and now I have a half hour call with the head of legal. I obviously want to ask about their department to compare to what I am currently doing. I wasn’t planning on jumping ship so soon. Any advice? What questions, if any, are off limits? Can I ask about their team moral? Communication? Delegation of responsibilities? Am I overthinking this??
