I recently took a job with a top tier investment manager, which is a step up in title and responsibilities. I went through the typical “notice” conversations with my current employer. My boss, who was a significant supporter and mentor of me during my time at my current firm, told me that he doesn’t think my new firm is “long term” for me. Anyone ever get something like this before? It threw me off because I was hoping for his support, understanding that it’s tough for him temporarily

Amex platinum corporate card — is this worth the $550 a year upgrade for an MBB consultant (entry level post MBA) given the COVID situation? I’m thinking of keeping the green card since there’s no traveling due to COVID and don’t think I will be expensing much due to WFH.

What is the best type of learning/leadership environment for someone at Consultant/PM level? I have heard of very different situations.

There are also partners who are more focused on sales, less hands on, but will make himself/herself available if the team / PM raises hand.
