Is it advisable to leave JP morgan after 9 months? My prev org(a big 4) is hiring back. WLB at JPM is great, b ut work here is slow and not exactly what i was hoping for. WLB at EY is worse, but role is good and of course there will be a hike. Cannot decide what to do. YOE - 11

Here, you have to decide between WLB or the type of work. As you already have 11 years of experience, you have to prioritise one among the two as I am guessing money won't be a problem here. If you feel like the work can get better at JP Morgan, I'd suggest you to stay as good WLB with an interesting role is always great. Very naive suggestion but that is what I feel.

Is it GDS?

No EY India

You will have target in EY because you would be going at M/SM level. Targets are not in JP Morgan and it is 100% true that WLB is also there. But money is also important so better to join EY and if you won't be happy after 1 yr then switch to some other company

So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?

How do you think a swap from MBB to big4 strategy would be viewed? Currently in a flagship office of an MBB and there is basically no strategy. There are 9 miserable cost outs / transformations / PMOs for every 1 borderline strategy case. The staffing lottery in my region means you almost always end up working 75 hours+ on some god forsaken project. Contrast that to what I hear about big 4 strategy: lower hours and more strategy exposure as the crappy projects go to the other MC departments
