I don’t like selling. Got to partner - 1 and it really hit me strong that while the comp is great at partner, I really wouldn’t want to spend so much time selling (I’m also super introverted) and that I just prefer delivery and building things.

How much would an average partner at mbb make? Just curious as I’m deciding my long term career

Better WLB with more than I make currently but 10-20% less money than I’d make as an early partner. Which is stocky fine for not having to work long hours and weekends

- they will openly discuss at a meeting why you suck
