Hi folks. I’m a data scientist at a T2/B4 firm that does fairly technical work. I am prepping for interviews to transition to SWE-data at a big tech company and currently have a little over 1 yoe. Since prep usually takes a while for swe, I have not started seriously applying. However, I am likely to receive an offer for 110-120k at another consulting firm. I was hoping to get some thoughts from other technical folks that made the transition. More in comments
Hi folks. I’m currently a data scientist at a T2/B4 firm doing fairly technical work. I have a little over 1 yoe but have recently decided I want to switch to SWE (but still in the data domain) in tech. I think I have a lot I want to learn from tech-first companies that my current firm doesn’t prioritize. I am still in the middle of interview prep but am likely to get a 110-120k offer from a different consulting firm in a non-hcol city. Any advice? More in comments

Ladies, what do you think about this? I see both sides to the story; I wonder if a better option would be to offer “family leave” to everyone and offer guaranteed standard bonus to those who take it (adjusted up for performance if applicable), a slightly higher guaranteed bonus to those who don’t (again adjusted up for performance if applicable).
