How do I know it’s time to get out? I’ve been applying to jobs, but is it okay if I don’t have anything lined up before quitting? For context, I recently had to move and now I’m commuting. My boss originally supported my decision to work from home 2 days a week but backed out the week of. Driving for a job w no benefits, very low pay, and I’m not *allowed* to take vacation before my wedding.

If you can afford it, I'd quit. It sounds like you tried to make your old job work but your boss is not very flexible or understanding of your situation. Otherwise, keep those pay checks coming in for the time being...

Starting out a full time job out of college not MBB but I am considering applying to MBB again for fall recruiting this year. I interviewed with all 3 within the past year (1st round ding) and I am eligible to apply again. I do not have the zeal to study for it nor apply again because my current job is 80k, 25 PTO and I close by 2pm. I am very much interested in having my own startup and working on it after 2pm but I know I wouldn’t have that at MBB. Should I push MBB to post MBA or try again?
