Which office? I’m in that group

Ask why there is an opening, seriously. Massive voluntary flight of SM level folks from that practice.

like

You sure it’s voluntary?

Culture is pretty good. Nice people, little in the way of politics, more laid back than big 4, bette WLB. Lack of work happy hours vs big 4, so it feels harder to know people outside of work, but small practice (120 nationally?) means you keep running into the same people anyway. Clear majority of the practice resides in 4 offices: Seattle/Bellevue, Chicago, NYC, Philadelphia. It will be hard to feel connected outside of those 4 offices.

Comp is base heavy, with a meager bonus even in good times. Base is highly dependent on how you negotiate during recruiting. Don't bank on annual raises, which are single digits aside from promotion year.

As SM, they just want you to sell. It is unclear to me (I am not an SM) if they give you the support you need. Don't expect a lot of sales collateral or relevant case studies (depending on your field of expertise). They are intent on growing the strategy practice and SM driven sales is the method.

There have been a lot of SMs in and out over the past few years. Some voluntary, some not. The involuntary were due to sales misses, or in one case a really bad fit and client snafu. These don't indicate anything wrong with the practice itself, imo.

like

The practice does not recruit by office, so office growth wouldn't greatly impact your candidacy. There is/was recent growth in the northeast, so don't consider local growth a limiting factor.

Might be a good time to join, I know they just went through a big round of layoffs, so you’ll prob be safe job wise for a while

I’ve been trying to find the right antidepressants for me, but it’s been a terrible journey. I’m constantly either feeling bad side effects when on the drugs or a bad funk when off (headache, lethargy, anxiety, nausea). I’m starting to notice a lot of mistakes I made when my mind was in a haze and am concerned how to deal with finding the right medication but also not destroying my career bc of the side effects. Any suggestions? Is this something I tell my firm about? If so, how?
