If you and your partner are both very committed to your careers how do you make a decision when one of you gets an opportunity in another city?

Either one or both can go for total remote work



The time apart during transitions has helped my marriage more than harmed it. It reminds us about what we would miss.

We decide based on what is best for family as a whole. More than once in my career I have moved to new city to pursue an opportunity while my wife and kids stayed behind for 6 months to one year so that everything could be prepared.

Tips for sleeping when struggling with burnout?

I am burnt out at my current role. I procrastinate all day, and work until late night to get my work done.

I budget at least 5 hours a night for sleep. The issue is that when I try to go to bed, my heart races and it takes me a long time to fall asleep. It's tough to stay asleep too.

I am considering melatonin, but I'm scared it will make me drowsy if I have to get up in morning with <7 hrs. I never had any problems sleeping prior to burnout.

Hey Fishes,

I have been selected in the Advisory practice in KPMG under MC-Central team.

Considering MC is Management Consulting, how good are the projects and career prospects there?

Also, how is WLB and variable payout % like?


3 Things to keep in mind which changing jobs:
1. Always ask dedicated budget for the job before you tell your expectations.

2. Always have atleast 2 weeks of gap before you join any company. You might not understand significance of that but just have a gap.

3. Always talk to people of team you will be joining before you accept offer or atleast before you join company.
