What to do if a friend lateraled but is not happy after a few months? When I spoke with them, I was super honest about the pace and the culture, but they do not seem to be happy with respect to those things, even though I told them. I am not sure what to do. Any advice? I am worried about losing a friend. Thanks in advance!

Lol what did they think was happening at K&E? It would just be raining pelotons?

You warned them, so why would they be upset with you? It’s not your fault they are unhappy.

That’s on your friend. You should know what you’re getting yourself into when you go to K&E

You were honest and people are different/work differently. I would not be worried about losing a friend over this, but if you do, maybe they will someday come around.

How really is the culture/atmosphere at K&E? Ive also heard some great things. Someone I know, who happens to be a quintessential shy/introverted/quiet guy, seems to really like working at K&E (NY).

Somewhat and for some people. But not everyone is good at saying no and if you’re pretty good to a star, you get offered all these “opportunities” you shouldn’t say no to. Or if you’re loyal to certain partners, they may get crazy hot and you start to think of their clients as your clients

Do you think they’re having a hard time adjusting but are capable of the work once they get past the adjustment curve? New culture and faster pace can be hard to get used to, even if you can do the work well. Maybe let them vent but let them know it gets easier once you adjust.

Hahaha I'm sorry it is K&E. They knew what they were getting into. Should've went to a more laid back firm like Sidley

Don’t worry, I think they already knew.

It’s def not your fault! They went in with their eyes open
