Be honest. Say you're burnt out. Let them know your family needs to come first for a change! If they demonstrate they don't care there are lots of places in industry or other firms that would love to have you!

OP take a rest. You've taken so many bullets for your firm it's time to do something for you. Try to get something local or switch to industry. I'm sure your RP will understand and if they don't, makes the choice easier :)

You're likely quite specialized, OP. The firm has invested a lot in you and will accommodate you!

Thank you all for the support. Much appreciated. With all the things I'm hearing about LOs, it's pretty scary and can't afford to lose job due to fam obligations. I've leveraged network for local but no luck thus pulled onto travel gigs as message to me is "stay utilized no matter what"

I agree. I joined right out of grad school. First professional job. Had amazing opps US and abroad. Worked with amazing people and then slowly over last 2-3 years the people I grew to be loyal to, started leaving or getting laid off and I started getting pushed around and now it's completely different with all the acquisitions

Agree with PwC1, I have much less experienced than you but I asked to have a more flexible travel schedule, offered to be on at home for longer hours (client is EST, I'm PST) and just told them how much of a toll it was taking on me. They agreed bc I think it was clear I'd leave or have to take a medical leave. They'd rather accommodate than lose that much talent. After all, you are the product they are selling

Thanks OP. EY has amazing culture and is extremely accommodating. If you decide an intra-big 4 move is for you, I'll reiterate your colleague's sentiment!

Your words cannot be more true P1. Thank you
D1-if only I could do that!

It really pains me to see what this company is doing to amazing people. It's horrid. I was a strong advocate for this firm but now I'm a formidable opposer.

Where they go OP? lets join them!

Industry, Huron , EY, small boutiques, hospitals universities ,internal transfers to new LOS

Show them the value you have brought (f they havent seen) and then put your foot down. If not, move to industry. Or sabbatical

Hi Folks

It's been 2.5 years in EY GDS TTT. I feel like a lot of politics are happening inside and it takes a toll on my mental health.

Is that happening across projects and can I know my analysis on this is wrong or how to deal with it.
Please advice. Feels like quitting this organization

How do I go about pivoting from customer facing roles to internal roles? My company is too small (health tech). I am burned out on executive relationships, customer facing demands, etc. I really enjoy program management type work. I do not like managing people. Would Chief of Staff be an option? Had I stayed at my previous firm I probably could have gone internal but going back in an internal role is not an option.

Received MBB offer, which I’m very grateful for. I have a medical degree with some work experience. I want to stay in healthcare. I like pharma/biotech, provider systems but also early stage healthcare investing. Certainly open to consulting long term. Few Qs: is the promotion pipeline any different for advanced degree folks? What sort of exit opps would be available to someone like me post MBB? Would my skill set/knowledge base be uniquely sought after, or not really? Thank you for your help!

Ok, I’m preaching to the choir here, but I’m a mid-level lateral, and I get most of my work now from an absolutely toxic partner that I am basically assigned to (firm is very siloed and partner doesn’t like sharing associates). I am getting to the point where I don’t take the tirades personally, but the obvious lack of good leadership leaves me incredibly unmotivated. But the learned helplessness also means that I procrastinate—like right now! Send help!
