"Shoot" me an email. "Grab" us some time. "Jump" on a call. "Hit" me up. "Steal" a few minutes. Why is violence a part of everything in our culture, even corporate buzzterms? 😕

^ this post is everything wrong with everything. Don't be so sensitive. I hope you've never stolen a kiss. Used egg beaters. Played slap jack. And heaven forbid drank out of a coffee mug.... How could one handle such brutality with their cup of joe?!!? .... And jump?!? C'mon man.

“Don’t be so sensitive” might not be the smartest thing for ANYBODY to be saying right now, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t completely appropriate here. These sayings are also hardly the preserve of straight white men either, are they?

Because violence is a fundamental part of how life sustains itself on this planet and all of civilization is just a thin veneer, barely holding it back. Everyone you work with would gladly bash your skull in with a spiked baseball bat if it meant the difference between life and death for them. Hey, you asked.

Will moving to a smaller company from B4 impact my career as such in the long run? Especially a company which is still growing and has only 150 employees at this moment. It’s not widely known in the market. But, it is growing at a fast pace in the last couple of years. From a work culture perspective, this company offers a lot of flexibility, emphasizes on wlb and employee satisfaction. Been wanting to get out of the toxic B4 work environment. I don’t want to make a hasty decision and regret.

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
