Does anyone have experience working for Connections Academy or another virtual academy? I am very interested in teaching from home, but most virtual jobs I have reviewed still require you to come to an office/ school building. I want to know what it is like, specifically the work load. Would you say more or less than public? How does classroom management, amount of grading, and freedom of curriculum differ?

Struggling with my mental health. MBA hire and started at MBB 4 months ago. I interned at another Tier 2 and was given no return and brutal feedback (stick to only entry level analyst-type work.)

I still go through extreme stress everyday where I feel I am underperforming and will be fired next cycle. Therapy/meds don't help. Anyone else go through this?
