Before I jump into it, I want to make clear that this is NOT a sob story, and I'm very happy with where I'm at! I've been at my current consulting gig for 5 months and gets better by the day. I'm still learning a lot on the job, but I'm finally starting to feel like I'm adding value to my team and not just asking questions throughout the day. That being said, its still nothing compared to the amount of fun I had in undergrad.
Question: To all the bankers, consultants, PE folks, etc, do you feel that life is better now post-grad or when you were in college? To some, this question is ludicrous and of course you're going to say college was the best time of your life. And like most, I fall into that camp. But are there others who disagree? If so, what event happened in life to make you feel happier? Was it the fat bonus? A significant promotion? Children? Acceptance into an awesome MBA, ensuring the most significant, life changing two years of your life (kidding...please no)? Would love to hear thoughts.
