The amount of stress I'd take home with me at the end of the day. I sometimes dream of having a job that I can leave at the door at 5pm.

I have to agree with this. It really is a stressful role

Knowing your industry fully and not becoming afraid to push back to leadership if you disagree with a certain direction/decision based on data

Debating on finishing school. I have no desire to move into management & I went back to school to finish my undergrad as more of a personal goal. However it’s very time consuming & exhausting working & going to school as a non-traditional student. Financially, the company is paying for my degree & there’s no pressure for me to finish. I’ll be making 6 figures in the next 2 years if I stay with my company regardless of degree status. Is it worth the time & stress? GPA was a 4.0, now it’s a 3.0
