Speaking purely from an economical perspective, would FAANG or MBB offer more $$ coming out of an MBA program? What about after 10-15 yrs?

Question about a couple of opportunities that I am considering. 1. A consulting company which is willing to pay me more than the second opportunity but work is going to be based out of Toronto. 2. An insurance company and position is based in Kitchener/Waterloo. Does the extra pay make up for the diff in cost of living between Toronto and KW? Also will higher taxes based on tax brackets offset any advantage? Fyi 200k consulting vs 150-155k insurance. Assume future potential as same. Suggestions?

Graduating Ph.D. program 2021, received offer from tiny boutique for 140TC+random small boutique benefits. Would be better commute, non metro area closer to home. Waiting to hear back from well known life science boutique (think ZS, Clearview, Putnam). Offer would be for NYC office, would likely relocate. If offer is given, a) at what $ is this worth and b) is brand everything for first firm out of school? Also would the life science boutiques reasonably pay more than that?

Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.

When dating, what has your experience been with navigating a mismatch with your work+travel schedules? Specifically, when the other person doesn’t have a demanding job as we do

Do Big 4 internal services (i.e. Corp Finance, HR, Recruiting) have clients like the typical business lines too? I’m looking to get out of control testing and into something with somewhat better hours

It’s almost 4 AM and I have not been able to fall asleep. I have been very anxious for the last 2 months, and have tried journaling, meditation, listening to Tibetan bowls, therapy, etc. I feel frustrated because I have taken the “recommended steps” to deal with anxiety, but still I feel like I am not feeling any better. Have others also felt frustrated at their “lack of progress” in improving their mental health? I want to get better, but it’s just so frustrating. Welcome any motivation.

I’ve finally made a decision to exit in December 2020, regardless of whether or not I have something else lined up. Before you ask: I’m in my mid-20s, no dependents, no student loans, HCOL, and have enough saved up to fund 6 months of funemployment. I’m committed to this decision and excited to share it!
