I work 55 hours a week on average. So I’d say it is more than the 40-50 hours that the Big 4 people talk about working on this app, but seems pretty manageable to me

I am thinking to resign after maternity leave ends so I can take care of the baby and find some job less demanding than big 4. The company has leave on absence, which extends my maternity leave. Does it look bad I resign right after my extended maternity leave? Has anyone been there, done that? When is the best time to give notice in this case?

New to consulting and feel inferior to my colleagues. I'm surrounded by Harvard grads, Oxford grads, Columbia, ex MBB, ex World Bank and so on, you get the picture. I graduated from a local university and a bit behind in my career track because I devoted the last three years as stay-at-home mom. Any tips to silence insecurities?

So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
