I work in tech bd… and every now and then I feel that I am wasting my life by working for someone else / company. I should just go on my own.. I just do not know how to go about it…. Is this common? May be a mid-life crisis..15 yoe, early 40s.

One year into my career... feel similarly. Many feel this way, but analyze costs and benefits of taking on the additional risk of entrepreneurship. Also, wfh may be making you see things differently. Pursue it OP if it’s something you really want. Why not? If it all goes awry, you’ve still got a ton of experience and can pivot back.


Im in a similar spot and relate to this. Makes my actual career feel miserable

I relate to this as well

Living it up in the city.

Anyone want to give me a like so I can get to 11 ♥️’s in order to DM for a referral. I’ll like all comments for this post in return and I hope others will as well. Let’s all get to 11+ hearts together.


Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?


I’m hearing that a recession is undoubtedly going to happen. Will we be impacted as Consultants and if so, to what extent?


Currently 25. I have around 82k saved up in Savings and Stocks and retirement (70k without retirement) . Not wanting to brag or anything just wanting to know if I'm at a good place?


Pwc fishes, care to comment?

Received an offer for 50% more comp but just started a project where the client specifically requested that I deliver the work and there really isn’t anyone else who has the knowledge that I do (because of past delivered work) to deliver this within the timeframe. How should I approach leaving?


My SM told me that I have to be conscious of racial diversity when selecting a candidate for my project team. It seemed like they were very very careful with their language. Does this mean I have to pick a URM? My project is already majority URM, so wouldn’t adding another URM make it less racially diverse?


How do people afford 20% down on homes above 500K? Outside of inheriting cash, curious how late 20s early 30s folks find themselves with 100K plus in cash?


Still don’t understand why I get paid $70K plus expensive meals and lavish hotel stays just to wear a suit, sit in on meetings, take notes, and smile at clients. Guess I’ll enjoy it while it lasts...
