It's hard... Mistakes come at a much greater cost and it's hard to gain trust and respect back once you mess up. Just keep rolling with the punches and take pride in knowing you're doing good work. You win some, you lose some (sometimes a lot). Ask for support from your teammates and ask for feedback as often as you can. Nobody is perfect at this job and consultants will never be perfect - and thats okay. You got this!

I just found out The FDA banned Juuls in June. Not a Juul smoker, had a puff from my friends once 4 years ago., but how are Cigarettes still OK to be sold, but not Juuls? Even if you say they can’t be sold to kids. I believe they’re already not as they fall under the same sale regulation as Cigarettes, but if not, then pass a law. It just looks to me like it’s just Cigarette companies killing off their competition

Can someone explain why all back office roles at investment banks are regarded so poorly? I hear things like the jobs are really dull and the pay is low. Is this true across the board? I'm thinking of internal consulting roles at investment banks. These seem to be interesting opportunities with decent compensation. Why all the hate on anything that isn't front office IB?

My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?

I’ve suffered from workaholism for a long time. Thanks to a lot of great self help books and therapy, I’m no longer putting work on a pedestal and I’m spending a lot more time on self care and my marriage. But, unfortunately, I am now getting withdrawals, because my body is used to the daily adrenaline of throwing myself into work. It’s this terrible feeling of like anguish/unease in my gut, but I don’t have anything I’m worried about- it’s like my body wants to find something to worry about.
