I feel like a high functioning individual with depression. I grew up in a culture where depression wasn’t a thing so I can stay strong but sometimes it just eats at me and I can’t turn to anyone

Sorry to hear that. Do you have an employee assistance line that can connect you to a therapist who can listen?

There is a depression bowl that is worth joining just to know you are not alone. Depression is a serious medical condition and you should not be ashamed to get help. Therapy, medication, exercise, and time with friends are all helpful in the battle. Hang in there!

Please consider finding a therapist you enjoy talking to. A large percent of the population has a regular therapist, or has had one for a period of their life. What's there to lose?

I have a similar situation. There are many who have this high functioning depression. I have found great relief through counseling with a therapist. Do this. It will change your life. Good luck. I’ll be thinking about this post for a while. Thanks for opening up

Will moving to a smaller company from B4 impact my career as such in the long run? Especially a company which is still growing and has only 150 employees at this moment. It’s not widely known in the market. But, it is growing at a fast pace in the last couple of years. From a work culture perspective, this company offers a lot of flexibility, emphasizes on wlb and employee satisfaction. Been wanting to get out of the toxic B4 work environment. I don’t want to make a hasty decision and regret.

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?

If I'm considering an MBA, do I need to go to an ivy league to make it worth it? I keep seeing that it's valuable for personal reasons, but then the part that is valuable for work seems to be dependent on the school name. If that's true, I'm not sure that there's any personal reason that would make that much energy/time/investment worth it.
