You can also get burnt out doing work you hate even its only 40-50 hours a week. Personally I hate PMO work and would only take a PMO role if the other choices were Satrbucks barista or starving. But that's just me

Some questions to consider: 1) what is causing you to feel burnt out currently, and can those be addressed at your existing firm? 2) how would new company address concerns from #1? 3) how would taking this job impact career ladder (eg, are you soon up for promotion at firm? would you get better exit ops?)

Thx Google 1, the stress and the workload so not sure this can be addressed as it’s the nature of our industry. I doubt (no guarantees) that I’ll have to work this much with the new gig, but again no guarantees. As for question 3, that’s they question I don’t have an answer for and making the decision very difficult.

Listen to your inner voice. If for some reason you have concerns don’t do it!

Why don’t you wait to find something that excites you and meanwhile try to get an internal role or take a few weeks off?

If you have time, take 3 days off and go to another city and just relax and think. Bring loved ones if relevant to put things in perspective
