I work for a small boutique firm and been seeing that there are some unethical practices and not much business in the pipeline. Should I mention this as both or one of the two reasons for leaving in my interviews? Id turned down a few recruiters a couple months ago saying I’m not looking to move so out but want to reach out to them now.

Howdy, y'all! Anybody here have some insights or the skinny on FTI Consulting? Particularly in the DC area. I haven't found too much about them and the bowl is pretty dead. I'm in cybersec and possibly interviewing for their consulting practice. How's travel, wlb, comp for incoming consultants? Coming from b4 experience so how does that compare? Thanks, fishes!

Hi everyone. Hope all is well. Recently took the McKinsey & Company game (not sure if I have an interview yet but preparing nonetheless). It’s an entry level business analyst position and an entry level digital position and was wondering if anyone wanted to case prep with me. I’m willing to work on anyones time zone. (I’m located in Sydney, Australia).

When considering leaving a firm because of its negative impact on your mental health, how long did you wait before leaving? Follow up question: when interviewing at new places, how do you professionally explain you left because of how badly it was affecting your mental health without bad mouthing the firm?
