Chief if Staff roles are very demanding. Expect bad work life balance. You are basically the one who will do most of the logistics and other work for the leader you support. If there is a good chemistry with the leader, it may be a dream job. But if you don’t sync, it will be a rough ride.

It can be very rewarding but your are basically the right hand man (or however you identify) or essentially their b*tch. Your job is to always be available.

I'm really good at my job, a high performer and have visibility with partners. However, I hate it. I wake up in the mornings feeling angry and resentful. I'm not able to exercise creativity as I'd like to, and feel I'd be happier in a completely different field. I'm scared to leave behind the reputation I've built. Big 4, it's safe/comfortable/addictive and Im addicted to being on cruise control. Anyone else been through the same?
