Interviewing with a small (50 people) boutique firm in a management position. They are in an industry I have 10 years of experience plus I have 5 years management consulting experience in B4 firm. Assuming the pay and potential bonus are reasonable what kind of challenges would I be in for? I already understand this would be a risk to join and help them grow but if I were successful I think it could be very rewarding.

8th year associate at firm that pays market. Never been all that interested in making partner, but life is manageable.
I’ve been angling to get an in house job for years (not a huge market in my city for my practice), and finally got one with a company I like. But the comp cut is killing me.
$365 -> $205 with a comparable cut in bonus pay. Will I hate myself for making this jump? Or is it finally time to cut bait?

How do you overcome burnout? Me (and my entire team) are just done. Between the lead on the project and client hating EVERYTHING we do, no matter what, it's like why even care anymore?
As the task lead, I try desperately to keep up morale for my team and absorb as much of the negative feedback as I can so the other team members don't see it. But I'm just done. Have to force myself out of bed every morning - wondering if I can call out dead.

Clients (particularly the male but sometimes the female) ignore me and ask for more senior team members just about every other project... I’ve been doing this a long time and know my shit. My project teams agree there’s nothing wrong with my communication or content. And I’m mid level. I think the problem is that I look 22 (I’m 31) and am pretty. I’m super frustrated. Any tips besides buying a dowdy wardrobe and a pair of glasses?
Starting a job search and looking to move from the Media Agency side to Client side. I have two asks for the group: 1) Looking for advice from anyone who has made this change. 2) Looking for Media recruiter references to help guide me through this process.

It seems like it’s pretty risky to do an MBA (even M7) if you want to work in non-amazon tech. I work for FAANG already, but nervous about recruiting post-MBA since most schools send only 3-6 people to my company. If I do decide to go the MBA route should I just force myself to be comfortable working at amazon?

As someone with ADHD, the impulsive side of me speaks up in meetings without fully processing the information. Then when corrected, I beat myself up for the rest of the day.
What has ended up happening over time is that I have started to come off as an introvert (because of the fear of being wrong) and also with low confidence. This is not a good trait in client facing roles where we are constantly making recommendations and clients look up to us.
Anyone else deal with this?

Nothing I love more than when people ask you to do something and you give them what they ask for and then they’re like “can you also add X and Y thing that I never mentioned?” and a task that should’ve taken you an hour or two takes all day?
