I am a 30yr old with a masters in finance and bachelor in Econ but I feel like I am not doing what I can to continue my education. I barely read but know I need to. Any page turning book recs that can get me start reading more?

Seeking perspectives on career path. TIA!

9 YOE (6.5 in consulting, 2.5 in BU strategy and M&A). Involved in end-to-end process (incl. modeling) but processes largely led by Corporate M&A team. 3 tuck-ins completed (all in 2022).

Options considering:
1/ Continue current path, stack more deal experience, strong chance of Director promo in 3-6 months
2/ Don’t wait, just jump or apply to other roles
3/ Study and go back to grab MBA (considering MIT or Stanford MSX - 1 YR)

TC: 175K (…low)

Hey folks. 3 YOE, working in tech at a great company, and making 135K TC in Austin.

Have an admit at Columbia and received 30K in aid each year, so I anticipate paying 110K in tuition. With cost of living in upper Manhattan, estimating an additional 35K each year, so 180K total cost.

I want to stay in tech post MBA, but explore faang companies and product roles. Is this worth the cost? I figure I could make a jump in comp at least?

What are your thoughts? I have little coding experience btw.

Is anyone else just weirdly neutral about this job? My reaction when someone asks me if I like my job is the same reaction I would have if someone asked me if I like my garbage disposal. Just totally neutral.

My group at my firm is great by biglaw standards. It’s still unpredictable and demanding, but I have not experienced any of the horror stories others have. I like the people I work with, which motivates me to do a good job and be helpful, I just don’t really care about the work at all.
