Corp Bites: Drowning

Posted: May 22, 2012 in Everything

One added benefit of my job is that we hire people from the ‘other consulting firms, which gives us the ‘best’ of what everyone else has to offer at a better pay / hour (we work less hours, get comparable pay at a lower prestige place).

One consequence of this is that you often get that McKinsey mindset and expectations but a capability or tolerance that is not so. That is today’s situation. I feel a bit like I’m drowning in slides and deck changes. It’s actually causing me to stress eat to the max (I just finished off about a full sleeve of chocolate chip cookies).

I am super excited for my end of June return. I don’t mind the occasional push, but I definitely did not sign up for this type of lifestyle. I am however managing perceptions, doing as told and achieving. The cost of my soul = additional weight put on, sleep lost, happiness lost and ‘experience gained’
