Sure you can quit-you'll just need to get off the gravy train and onto the el like the rest of us. Enjoy being overpaid while it lasts.

Wait, what's the issue? You're getting paid more than your coworkers and feel that if you quit you'd need to leave the city out of shame?

I'm stuck. Waiting for my relocation claw-back (ransom) to expire. Not in Chicago, but still in the middle of the country. It's a learning experience.

Okay 🐠 I need your input on two scenarios I have. 1 - Join EY cloud strategy as SM working under two partners and with 2 other SMs (will be partners in the next 2-3 years) that I know well; with a fast track to partner for myself. Or 2 - Join BCG DV at EM level and work towards partner level there. Completed final interview last week and got positive feedback. I don’t think there’s a wrong answer, but I have the EY offer in hand, comp difference is negligible.
