I agree, what school?

Kellogg? I know they offer one year for those with undergrad business degree.

I'm thinking about doing the same next year.... Did you look at other one yrs? Could you have just taken a sabbatical instead of quitting?

When I first started in public 5 years ago I was highly motivated. Since my first round of raises my motivation has slowly been decreasing for the next 4 years. At what point do you decide to cut your losses and go to industry or go to a different firm? Any suggestions how you make this determination? I like my job other than busy season. I’m more so sales minded than I am accountant minded so it seems like I’ll kill it if I stay but it’s so hard to stay motivated due to low pay.

I recently moved to industry. The role is exactly what I wanted but for longer hours than I had hoped for. I was hoping 7 - 3:30 and then check in in the evening as my boss said as long as core hours cross, hours can be whenever…. But every time he wants to talk, it’s like 4 or 4:30 and we often go to 6. So I’m working 7 - 6 with just small breaks throughout the day. Additionally, I am constantly evaluating finances to see how likely it is for me to quit… how do I evaluate abandoning my career

What would you do: accept a non-equity partner position at a small regional firm with billable hour requirement of 1500 or accept an of counsel position at an AmLaw 200 with a chance to get to nonequity partner in a year or two but have a minimum of 1700 hours (expectation probably higher)? Assume base salary is the same at both.
