Background: Banking and Entrepreneurship
Undegrad: Top university in California
I am looking to apply to bschool in this coming fall (columbia, wharton, HBS) however I have hit a point where I've had enough at my job (a little over a year). Long story short, the company (a recent startup that went IPO) does not value its lower level employees (in more ways than one) and I feel I could get my foot out into other positions more suitable for my experience.
Should I leave this company for another job now? I've been at 3 different companies for the last 4 years (mainly due to contractual obligations in banking) and I feel jumping around too many jobs will be frowned upon in my application.
Also, I might add, at the same time, I've founded a startup with a partner four years ago and we were just acquired this month. I hope to utilize this experience in the bulk of my application.
