When is one “ready” for the Senior Manager role at B4? And I know this role can be different across firms. Just for clarity, this would be the role before partnership. What attributes should one have?
I am a working mom of 16 mo. A software engineer & looking to switch to different engg role. Have to prepare for full day tech interviews. Im really struggling to find time to study with a toddler at home. Weekday mornings and evenings chores (daycare pick up/drop off, prep meals, pack lunch, give bath etc) along with full time job leaves no time during the week. Weekends are even busier since daycare is closed. Im so exhausted from all these chores that whatever time I get, I want to rest up.
Is Droga5’s Account Manager role equal to AS elsewhere? If I have 2.5 years experience as an AE, does it make sense to interview for an AM role there? Or opt for an AS opp somewhere?
🐟 - any insights on an expert role in McK? I am an executive in a small consulting firm. 1. Is it worth moving to MBB as an expert? I’ve heard mixed reviews about growth and exit opportunities. 2. Are the interviews still case based? 3. is it a respectable position McK? 4. Would it ever make partner as an expert? I would appreciate your input,
Help! I’m a decent teacher but admin has a target on my back this year & NO ONE knows why. I’m receiving my second write-up for an absolutely ridiculous reason (my rep agrees that it’s total crap but they manipulate the wording just-so to make it sound legit), but a third & I can be fired. I have to finish the year where I am to have my student loans forgiven. I’m terrified to go to work every day. A large part of my future is on the line & I’m stuck. It’s so unjust but I have no recourse.

What do you miss about your job that can’t be done WFH? I miss 1) client and meetings with opposing counsel to discuss high-stakes transactions where everyone’s dressed to the nines and do “serious business”; 2) expensive lunches; 3) happy hours and 4) wearing my suits. None of that is coming back before 2021 (probably not only the meetings, but the transactions are going away too...) Glad I still have my job though.

I feel like there are talks of a “California Exodus” that happens every 10 years. But with the pandemic, people’s loss of faith in CA politics, transplants moving back home, and people opting to move either to more suburban cities or out of state for cheaper housing options because they’ll be WFH permanently, do you guys think that this time around, a “California Exodus” actually has legs? As a native Angeleno, I’m interested to see how much the city will change after this pandemic.
