It was always thus. Few “jobs” are as interesting as helping solve important problems and drive meaningful change, in an endless series of non-BAU project situations, working with awesomely talented people. Especially when you are more junior - ie below corporate SVP.

@M2 - I completely agree with the different people point. To give you more context, I expect 3 things from my job - 1. Continuous learning 2. Impact 3. People who I admire (smart and career driven, with empathy) Money is only a hygiene factor. I added empathy recently after meeting I-Bankers. Nothing against them, they would be liking what they do :)

Feedback I’ve received from clients and colleagues on my leadership and deliverables are “exceeding expectations” on all areas.

I had my YE review last week and the YE feedback I got was “we don’t really know any of his work, he needs to engage more with our team”. Will this affect my compensation and bonus this year?

I’ve been at EY for about 6 years and I am now applying for strategy roles. I know it’s competitive but things aren’t really going my way. I am getting the roles I am least interested and not the ones I really want. This is more of a rant, because I know the only way to get out of my situation is to keep trying. I am so drained and never been depressed before but I think I am starting to get there because of how exhausted looking for a job is 🥴🥴🥺🥺🥺🥺 Any success stories to get some motivation?
