The new programmers at my company all seem to learn much faster than I do. I have a decade of experience, am I going to fall behind?

Comparison is the enemy. Keep putting in quality work and don't worry about what's going on with them. I don't see you losing value with a decade of experience under your belt already.

You'll only fall behind if you stop progressing. As long as you're putting effort into staying ahead and dedicating the time, you'll be fine.

I've been right where you are. I ended up doing a lot of extra studying on the side. It was exhausting for a while but worth it in the end.

Potential transfer from an internal finance role at B4 to ACN digital finance strategy. For background I’m a third year project controller at B4. My friend is referencing me for the consultant position at ACN. Is it worth the shot given I don’t have client facing experience? If so, any tips on how to brand myself without that experience?

Current undergrad. Have internship offers for two very different roles. The first is a public sector generalist management consulting position in DC. The second is for a smaller early-stage incubation venture capital firm in NYC. I've always been somewhat of a generalist, with varying interests. I feel as though based on my decision my life could go in very different directions... Any insights? Esp if you're in public sector consulting or have made a similar dec. Gratitude.

Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though. (Lost work due to pandemic.) With extra medical expenses this year (outside of government insurance) I realize I’m simply not making enough money to do what I want and need to to (medical + travel + investing). Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.
