Let's use this thread to be very open about challenges we all might have and how to overcome them . In short , what is the biggest fear haunting you in your current work life ?
Looks like B4 partners makes the most $$ in the long run, even tech/FAANG or industry level senior roles doesn’t pay more then $600-700k, except a few roles like ceo/IB/PE/other financial roles/startup rsu (of u r lucky). Came to the conclusion after reading all the posts in this and other bowls. May be MBB, but if u add pensions, I think B4 is better. Thoughts?
All these corporate layoff has my anxiety at peak level. I understand they’re mainly in tech right now but just the thought of a recession sends me into a panic for my job. I’ve never been through a downtown in house. It almost makes me miss the security of the billable hour as a value proxy.

Recently joined Accenture Strategy as a Management Consultant. But now looking at my peers I feel I am a bit lowballed. Many of my peers are Managers with couple of years lesser experience than me. Though they have grown organically within the organization but still I feel have I made a mistake.
My profile is 7.3 years work ex post MBA and around 1.5 years pre MBA. Salary received here is 25L fixed.
So have I made a mistake by not coming at M level??

I have a typical Spanish name with two surnames and a composed given name (e.g. JoseLuis PerezLopez) and for my entire career spanning multiple non-Spanish speaking countries, people have just been truncating it for my work emails, etc, with no input from me (think firstname.lastname@example.org).
Today the HR person at my next job actually bothered to ask me what names to use, which is a tiny thing but it honestly made my morning. Here’s to my non-anglo standard named homies ❤️
I’m leaving consulting for a flex data role (bi / engr / analytics) at a startup. I’ve been in consulting 3 years, and my salary went from 100->120. I was happy until I started reading some of the salaries out there..How are people finding jobs with 150 // 175 // 200? What can I do to make my background more desirable for employers?
I don’t know what I’m interested in yet, but I have been enjoying exploring data architecture and algorithm development
Any CLE recommendations for junior litigators to get familiar with court rules, cycle of a case, etc.? Anything helps!
I don't understand why so many people expect kids not to learn manners. I'm not saying that they have to be experts on etiquette, but we need to have higher standards for them

Just wanted to post an update. 68 weeks ago I posted about my drinking problems. It was bad. It’s been 8 months now without a single drink. I still can’t believe it. I still miss drinking. I’ve sat with coworkers and watched them drink. It’s not nearly as fun, but I am so thankful each morning I can hold my head up high. Will I drink again? I only said I would quit for 60 days. Can I have a beer? Some wine? A fine bourbon? I sometimes crave it. I guess there is the answer! You can all do this!
Quit the booze back in September. It mostly hasn't been that hard but I can't get a grip on my emotions this week. Feeling overwhelming sadness for no real reason. (Cont)
I found this a while back; perhaps some will find some useful nuggets within: https://amotaudio.com/wp-content/uploads/EMOTIONAL-SOBRIETY-9_5_20.pdf.
I relapsed one week ago and feel awful about myself. I’m having trouble finding motivation and strength to get sober again now
Possible to be sober as a new consultant? Feel constant pressure from other colleagues to drink and feel like it will be an uphill battle to climb the ranks sober. Can anyone share their story of getting/ being sober early in their career?
My husband is addicted to alcohol.. For those who are sober/recovering, what worked for you?! What can I do to help him?!
What are some fun sober activities or hobbies? Meaning where it's hard or impossible to drink while doing the activity? Hiking, bike riding, shooting guns are some that come to mind. What else?
First in-person retreat in a while coming up and first for me at this particular firm. Several people have mentioned that much of the bonding etc happens while drinking. I am newly sober and now worried about being in this environment, any tips for making it through the weekend? Similar experiences?
Feeling so frustrated and scared. I am trying my hardest to be loving to my brother who is addicted to many things. My family has been encouraging him for years to get real help. He’s finally semi-agreed to go to a detox facility and then rehab. However, those are far away from where we all live now. My 70+ dad wants to fly with my brother there to make sure he goes. I understand, but also...there’s a freaking pandemic going on with a virus targeting older people. Cont’d...
66 members already! For those of you currently working a 12 step program, if you choose, share below your addiction and your length of sobriety. Perhaps that’ll get some good Q & As going
My dad has a problem with alcohol. When he stops drinking for a day he clearly exhibits all the signs for alcohol withdraw. Shaky hands, sweating insomnia. I’m so tired of seeing him fall. My mom has passed away (they were long divorced) so I really don’t have anyone to turn to. How can I be supportive without being an enabler? He has lost the last three jobs and is currently jobless and will must likely need my financial help soon.
Folks that took medical leave for alcohol use treatment: What was your experience? Did you do inpatient detox? anyone skipped detox and go straight into an outpatient IOP? How was that? How long were you out on leave? How much notice did you give ur boss before the leave? Anyone quit/not go back?
I’m ready to get real treatment for my alcohol usage. Would love to benchmark my path against others in the group as I don’t trust my decision making ability right now.
Is everyone on here sober from (mostly) everything? Do you sometimes partake in other vices? For me, it’s smoking herb 1-2x/week. Used to be way worse (❄️⛷💊🥃) and that’s how/why I justify it.
Starting on my journey to sobriety today from sex addiction. I’ve been clean from alcohol for several years but my therapist has pushed me to start attending AA meetings in addition to SAA meetings. I know I can’t overcome this alone.
What happens if a employee discloses his performance has suffered because corona virus got him depressed and he’s been drinking?
I start every morning reading these affirmations. I hope everyone finds grace and love today!
Took today off to work on my oldest daughter’s truck and watch Stranger Things 4:8 & 4:9 with my youngest . So grateful for AA. I have the relationships I only dreamed of when I was an active drunk.
Me, leaving the work happy hour after 30 minutes.
