So basically the only thing I find appealing about PE is money (judge all you want but I’m sure I’m not alone) - I don’t like excel, or finance, or math. And I just got an offer for a PE role in an industry that I don’t love and with 3 fewer weeks of vacation than my current role (I really value vacation time)... idk would I be a total idiot to pass up the chance to break into PE? Long term goal is to marry rich and retire young lol.

What are your plans to marry rich pls advise

You shouldn’t take the offer given what I read you wrote. Do what you enjoy. (Disclaimer: former MBB partner and now in PE as a firm leader)

Sounds like you would be miserable. PE only rains down the riches if you make Partner and get that sweet sweet carry - getting there requires years of blood, sweat, and tears, plus luck. Why don’t you stick to something that pays pretty well but isn’t PE. Consulting, tech. Start a company. Heck, go to med school. Or if you succeed and end up marrying rich, you sure as hell don’t need any of the above—and let me know any pointers on that front while you’re at it

If it will make you miserable don’t do it. If you value vacation then this role will make you miserable.

Am I expected to ask specific questions about things like utilization, performance metrics, rollover PTO etc etc. during interviews? After 2.5 YOE I feel like I still don’t know all those answers at Deloitte and definitely didn’t know enough about consulting or post college work to ask before starting my first job. Alternatively are employee handbooks leaked/available online anywhere? Can’t find them and am interviewing with KPMG and EY

I also don’t want to be doing only security assessments, if that’s what the work is like. 😅

Need advice and pep talk because I’m certain I have chronic imposter syndrome :( Background on me, I have about 6 years of work experience post college but have gone through many companies because of layoffs and/or reorgs.

My current role is about to be my longest (thank goodness, hitting about 2 years) but I feel like I’m not a SME in anything but I feel embarrassment for myself (Cont.)

Just wanted to remind my fellow creatives that agencies need us more than we need them. It’s important to be respectful, but don’t be afraid to speak up, push back, ask for a raise, ask for time off or quit. The value we bring to the table is fundamental, very hard to replace and is often overlooked by us and leadership. Agencies everywhere are in overdrive mode and creatives are being overworked to keep the engine moving. Make sure you’re compensated properly for it.
