I feel trapped. I hate consulting, hard work, corporate life in general. I have so much student debt after MBA school that I have to take these high paying jobs that require a lot of effort but I just don’t think I’m built to do this forever. I don’t spend much on other things but it’s scary what happens to my finances if I make a major purchase like a house, have a kid, etc. Not sure if I’m asking for advice or rambling

KPMG Strategy 🐟, what's a realistic base + bonus look like for Senior Associate coming in with 5.5 YOE (mostly relevant) and a target MBA?
Thoughts on getting an MBA if you’re already in Product? 6 YOE, TC is ~250k (base + equity) so not sure the ROI would be significant just for comp alone. However, my goal is to be a product leader or even a GM of a business line at a software company, and the branding/network of a M7 MBA sounds like it could be useful.

The hustle culture is killing me. Working until midnight everyday with no salary raise this year. Is it time to move? Just heard Deloitte people are getting raise this year.
This guy I’m seriously considering a long term relationship with just told me he has suffered from ED since his 20s (now early 30s). He’s even had a surgery and worked through anxiety. Now, he needs to take a pill before having sex. I played it cool when he told me but I love sex - the hot and passionate kind. With this new info… I’m in a bind. We’re going on a week long vacation together and haven’t been physically intimate with each other before. I don’t know what to expect or how to be 😞
Would getting a masters hold a great value in the tech industry? I currently do cloud and devops engineering work, and I have debated in getting an mba, masters in data/computer science for about a year now. The big milestone I am facing now, is that I am not 100% sure if it is worth spending thousands on getting a masters in our time, since we can mainly learn everything we need through via certs/ online resources. Any suggestions or recommendations?
Am I too greedy feel kind of depressed. Been looking for 3ish months now and currently 12yoe making 123k. Main focus is development and main language is Java. Looking for 190ish and I did get couple of offers before but due to timing didn't get to accept them. I did interview AWS tpm but didn't get it.

Has Anyone had any experience with training therapy animals to enhance the classroom experience? If so, what advice can you give about your experiences? Thanks so much!
Nightmare situation today at my first Zoom trial. On Friday, the court said trial would begin at 1:30 PM on Monday. We informed our clients and all our witnesses to be ready at that time. Never got a Zoom link, figured it would show up Monday morning. At 9:01 AM on Monday, we get an email saying, among other things, “Defense counsel has not appeared for trial.” Then, another email came immediately after that, with a Zoom link included. It’s just me and the paralegal in the office at this point.
