Right now with this job it's sad but sometimes the only thing I look forward to is crawling into my warm bed. I'm 22 and feel like this is so wrong.

I'm always in a rush to get home just to a glass of wine and sit on my couch. Sometimes Netflix asks I'm still there and I just sit there without saying yes because getting up to say yes is a lot sometimes.

You have your best years ahead of you. B school or exiting into great opps at 27. I wish I'd done this out of undergrad - it's my biggest regret in life Bc it's 5x harder in your 30s.

Not saying it's not hard. Even a robot would get tired. But trust me when I tell you that the most hirable person in corporate world is a 26 year old with 2-3 years of consulting experience.

Thanks SA1 it actually really helps to hear that! There are days where I love the job and can't wait to get in to the office to work with my team but lately have had more of the crappy days. I took a vacation a few weeks ago and ever since I've had a hard time (wrapped up my project and prepping for CRTs)

Set boundaries. Worse case scenario? You get fired... and that can take a while. At that point, exit opportunities abound. Once you realize that, you'll have all the power you need wrt to managers, leadership, clients. And please note that I'm not suggesting you don't do a great job. But know what your priorities are.

Get yourself a gym membership and make booking hotels with good gym facilities a priority. This job spikes your cortisol levels which effects you energy, endurance and if you are male testosterone levels. I am on medication to control the cortisol levels because I'm older ... at your age you just need the endorphins you get from and hour at the gym every day.

@EY3 take a look at some job postings for Biz Ops, strategy, or analyst type roles - many of them will say they prefer 3-5 years consulting experience. Personally, I don't get it, but 3 years seems to be the magic number.
