If coming from MBB dont do it.. better oppprtunities out there for your mental health and long term opps. Im at a similar legacy tech hardware co, comp is good but growth/learning is pretty bad

Mental health impacted by a LOT of long meetings for things that go nowhere, feeling like a cog in an infinite machine and near constant reorgs/cost-cutting. WLB highly variable due to said cost-cutting, projects/initiatives often severely under-resourced. Im personally likely exiting from a similar company soon for another oppty

Expect cases. But didn’t vibe well with the people SMH.

Honest question. When a client asks you a question that you need to refer to the billing attorney (assume it makes sense to do so and copy the client on convo in adding them in) are you all refraining from using the term billing attorney to clarify a role or is it pretty common to do so in client communications? Had one attorney show a sensitivity to the term but never had that happen before. Wondering if that is a common or uncommon sinsitivity?

Hello, A recruiter reached out to me regarding an opportunity in a tech VC/Growth Equity role for a pre-MBA candidate. I need your advice on how to find information about this type of position, what type of career projection I am anticipating and whether a pre-MBA candidate role means that person is in the process of wrapping up their MBA or candidates without an MBA degree. Thank you in advance!
