C1, can’t say it’s boutique enough that it gives me away. Let’s just say it’s small (under 100 employees) and not super renown, but lots of ex-B4

I’ll lose brand prestige, wondering if that’s worth the short term gain. Long term prospects are also probably not as good at this firm in the sense making partner is not likely

Work wise, I’ll be jumping from currently unsexy work to different unsexy work. At B4 there is arguably more opportunity for some really cool things and partners appear to be better leaders

Dude. You are so down. Why don’t you look for something you love

P1, I guess so. I just want to start my own enterprise. Job is backup for now

Also almost all highest rating on all performance reviews mostly 5s/highest level. Feedback from variety of levels, so chance of hitting 6 figure base at B4 next year

Dont go until you have a promotion

BA 1, does that burn bridges?

Which firm?

Left consulting for a great opp recently and I still have anxiety from my prior experience. I had hoped that it would go away. I still have that Sunday evening depression that was stimulated by my last job. How soon does this usually last after exiting a toxic Big 4 employer? Has anybody else experienced this? Its like some lingering anxiety that is preventing me from being my full self. Its like i always forget that I rescued myself. How does long does the lingering mental damage last?

Call me crazy, but after 4 years in industry , 4 years in public (exited as senior) , is it crazy that I want to go back to big 4? I know most of my colleagues are already exited, but I miss the comradadre, flexibility during summers, ability to mentor / participate in random initiatives and holiday time. Industry has been such a constant grind, I almost prefer the 6 months of misery followed by chill vs. constant busy.
