Depression/Anxiety Talk

Spent years hoping and fighting to get the great job and big paycheck. Made it, good salary, happy in the role. And now I realize that my career growth was just a crutch to hide the pain from the rest of my life. It seems I may actually have to face my issues now.

Lack of social life, friendships, massive anxiety, low self esteem, all combined with what I now see as a long running depression.

It's a good thing you want to face these issues now, never too late. There must be a way to turn it around, with time and patience

Curious about the number of people on here that make $250k+. I see the absurd compensation numbers that get thrown around on the consulting bowl as if $250k is the new $100k and I’m beginning to wonder if the data is skewed between whites and blacks? I’m not seeing these sort of compensation numbers in my circles. Am I grossly underpaid? For reference, I’m a Top 10 MBA, big 4, SM 2 @ $195 base and ~40k bonus.

Feeling torn. I enjoy the team that I work with and have a relatively good work-life balance. However, my compensation is below industry standard, and I don’t want to be with a technology implementation-focused firm in the long term (strategy projects are few and far between). Is there any good method to parting ways with people who have invested so much into my development without disappointing them or potentially burning bridges?
