Partners - what made you decide (and when was this) to pursue the Partner track vs taking a sweet industry exit? Do you believe that certain personalities/traits in people make them better suited to go the Partner route?

No sweet industry exit pays as much as a Partner. There are exceptions, but not much.

Or was it purely that partner $$$??

This gig pays well. But you have to like what you do. I love working with my clients helping them solve problems, love working with the very bright and dedicated people we have on our teams, love the variation of work ans the mental challenges, ability to run your bit of a business within the larger organization. Then add very good $ to that.. so that all more than offsets the negatives of the job. When did I decide? Unclear — people talked to me about it, but probably when I became a senior manager it became real and I wanted it. Before that it was in sight but not as clear.

Partners. Do team members just come and go from your perspective? Feeling very disengaged and demotivated… do leaders actually care to talk people through these low points in their careers or is this something we need to figure out on our own?
