I’ll give one example. When working in real estate asset/property management. I had an electrician who’s son was a genius. (Guy went to Harvard and Harvard law) in the summers he would work as electrician. He did the corporate law thing for a little bit and then realized he hated the hours. Went back to being an electrician.

I don’t think he is lying. People get sick of the hours and bounce. I worked at a “Big Law” law firm before consulting and one of my coworkers quit the legal world to become a firefighter. One of the top law firms in the US and he had an Ivy League law degree

Corporate strategy or a leadership rotational wont pay as well as a tech PM, but product manager can be off the table at most places unless you have a tech background. Might could get a high paying program manager role tho. But those leadership programs should get you > $150K and are chill.

PM is amazing. Making $200k+, high upside with promotions or moving to another company, and work 40-50hr a week on average

Considering MBA because I did liberal arts in undergrad, but already have McK and HYPS on my resume. From a pure learning and career advancement perspective, is an MBA worth it (e.g. to learn accounting theory, take industry-relevant electives, signal to future employers)?

So since direct promote Cs in legacy Parthenon are now being paid 75% of what they’ve been promised for three years (and 75% of what their post-MBA counterparts, who take 6+ months to become effective in the job, will be making), is it fair to assume they’ll only be expected to work 3 of every 4 weeks? Especially since this is a permanent change, not a temporary recession change?
