Sure it is. Huge bump. And that’s what it makes harder - golden handcuffs

Been feeling empty inside and the work is so long term that I feel like I don’t contribute much especially in massive engagements. Just trying to figure out what to career/company I should try and to move to after? Not looking for wlb, only 25 and a workaholic so prefer staying busy all the time

I left big 4 for tier 2 and have really enjoyed the differences. Smaller project teams means you can own a real workstream and high rates mean that the client is more engaged. Plus performance review isn't such a shitshow, that's the biggest issue with big 4 IMHO

Yea, work is so much better than b4 consulting. Night and day. More strategic and shorter projects. No feeling of boredom and being stuck

So if you were doing strategy work that was short (8-12 weeks), it wouldn’t be too much of a contrast?

A goal of mine is to leave my PA firm (one of the big 4) this year. Currently in my fourth busy season. Do you think I should wait until getting promoted to senior and leave right after, or leave after this spring busy season? I am not super eager to get a senior position because with Covid and the inevitable learning curve, I don’t feel equipped to accept one. So I was thinking of applying for entry positions. Any advice?

Anyone know someone who’d be interested in a marketing role at a top VC fund in the South? You’ll be working with some of the most successful investors in the region - partners include a former unicorn founder and a CEO of a $15B company. Ideally a background in tech/digital marketing - looking for someone with 2+ YoE. I don’t have salary details, but I’d imagine pay’s around 80k-90k + bonus. DM me for details.
