I've been in consulting for ~8 months post-MBA and I hate it. I don't care about the work I'm doing and feel like I have minimal impact, but I work literally all day from the time I wake up until I go to bed. I want to leave and move to industry, ideally an earlier stage startup, but if I left now I'd owe a lot of money back to my current employer for tuition reimbursement. Don't know what to do. I feel incredibly stuck, and every day I feel like more of my soul is being sucked away from me 🙃

Leave. Owing money back isn’t the worst thing. Staying unhappy day after day is a bigger risk factor for me than short term debt

You done goofed up

Just stop working so hard and get fired, then I think you won’t have to reimburse potentially

How long do you have to work for full tuition reimbursement? Try to set some boundaries for yourself and only do EXACTLY what’s expected of you. No more no less. No need to go above and beyond and kill yourself for a job. That’s what I did before I moved from consulting into recruitment.

How would you explain in interviews that your work was the level of a specialist/director even though your job title was that of a coordinator? The other factor in this scenario is that I only have one year of experience yet was given responsibilities that trusted mentors I asked would deem as the work for 2-3 people. I am an young professional trying to understand how to navigate this field! Appreciate anyone's comments :)
