Same as in any other profession including this one, driven people put in the work

I hope that’s not right! I’m trying to leave consulting because of the terrible hours

50-70 hours a week.. it’s noticeably more demanding than other areas of pharma, but still not bad

Well consulting sucks. I’m actively trying to leave. So you’re not missing out!

I'm in corporate strategy at a large biotech and work on average <45 hours a week. 🤷‍♀️ Fwiw, BD is a separate function, so less fires in our department.

Also, is it “up or out” in corporate strategy too? I’m kind of over the stress. At BCG there’s the constant threat of being fired.

Hey friends - I’m currently on a brief medical leave (~1 month) and my management has been contacting me quite regularly by phone and email without notice for different documentation and admin processes relating to the leave. It’s basically taking up as much time as my regular work. Not sure what is reasonable here as I would really like to focus on healing and just deal with it when I’m back…isn’t that the point? What are my rights here?

This guy I’m dating wanted to have lunch with me today. He came over to my place with his favorite childhood meal from his favorite local deli (a greasy cheesesteak with peppers and onions and home fries 🤢) and wanted me to try it for lunch. Just looking at it made me feel sick to my stomach. I have a very sensitive stomach, and I can’t really eat fried or greasy foods. I tried a bite, but I couldn’t eat it. He immediately got offended, ended the date and left. Did I do something wrong??

I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)

...I wonder what normal people feel in life. I wonder who I would have been if I weren’t so sick.

For those of you who got covid after hearing someone around you was exposed - were you more keen to pay attention for symptoms and if so, what were some early signs you were going to be sick too? I was exposed over the weekend and can’t stop questioning every little thing. I realize as each day passes, the likelihood of being sick decreases but I’m still paranoid as so many people I know have gotten sick over this past month
