After working for 10+yrs at B4, you should realize a job is a job. You have a shot but you might be sorely disappointed as the *green* isn’t grasser the other side. Good luck!

Might literally be greener though (mo dollas)

Yes — get a referral and then case well…

There's an entire expert track and experienced hire program at McKinsey for situations like that

Start my finding MBB people who are second connections on Linked, reach out to them and try to connect.

I currently work at a very ”hyped” food delivery tech company. I’ve been there for 1,5 years now, but the pay is low, bad company culture and I don’t feel appreciated for the work I do. So i’m overall not to happy there, and looking for a new job. However every interview I’ve had so far ask why I want to leave such a ”great” company after less than 2 years? I don’t want to shittalk my job but it’s really makes me feel like i should stay another 6m just so I don’t look bad. What would you do?
