Hey there! I’m looking into a move from academia to industry. Higher education is a hot mess and my job has no formal growth opportunities. I am not paid competitively for my role or location. Plus, we just got our first raise in 8 years! It was about 2%. I feel like my passion is no longer serving me and the future I want to pursue. Tips for making the switch? I just had my final interview for an IFS research position at PwC.
Applying to MBA programs next fall with the goal of pivoting from tech finance to consulting. I’m very passionate about fitness and health and think I would love a role at a Peleton/Tonal type company as a post-consulting option or even in place of consulting.

Pumping Moms - how do you code your time? I try to take my laptop in the room with me to pump, but with set up/clean up, etc. it doesn’t feel right to bill a client for all the time.
I had +100 nights at SPG this year... in the new app I have 78.. anyone else missing nights?
I’ve been talking to a guy for a few months. He works at a big 4 and will have bouts of silence (like multiple days) in response to anything from pleasantries to nudes. When he’s engaged he’s totally into me and talks about how much he likes me and wants to move things forward and then nada. I love talking to him when he’s present but don’t get the hot/cold. Sometimes he blames work and others he doesn’t address it all. Is he just busy and I don’t get it or is this all red flags shady?
I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.
