Hey F fish, how important is the guys job to y’all (I mean title + company). Is there a preference chart for - Big 4, MBB, FAANG/Tech moguls , Start ups?
Everyone keeps talking about regretting not being a SWE at FAANG and earning 250k+ straight away. If you aren’t at MBB, there is a very good chance you would also have not got into FAANG
If FAANG PM roles are the new “prestige”, what graduate programs guarantee employment into FAANG at the same rate M7 lines you up for roles at MBB? Coding bootcamps don’t seem to be answer....neither does “Master in X”🧐
How did people decide if they wanted to go for MBB, FAANG, or IB during MBA recruiting? I'd want to spread my chances across all, but heard you should focus on one.
STARTUP FOUNDERS and FAANG: would you rather hire MBB with 3-4 years of exp or Tier 2 with 5-6 years? If you could isolate those variables and everything else held constant.
What pays more at entry level, FAANG biz ops or MBB? What about at the next level (after 2 YOE or so)?
How do schools feel about you jumping from a management consulting firm to startup if that startup fails badly after you join? I’m sure you could spin it as a learning experience but will that really work when you’re being compared against people from MBB/PE/FAANG?
I don’t have a preference for FAANG or MBB. But are there any characteristics or traits that help one over the other? E.g PM in FAANG vs Mgr in MBB roles. Just a thought, no need to be harsh :)
For those who have gotten into HSW without having started a startup/non-profit, worked at MBB/PE/FAANG, or gone to Ivy/MIT/Stanford undergrad, could you please share your profile/story? -ORM & mildly above average gal trying to find hope
People who have made it to the perceived “top/best” place in their career field/education (MBB, FAANG, top PE fund, HSW, etc): do you feel satisfied? Have you had to recalibrate your goals? If so, what are those goals?
If you’re frustrated about 💰 and career, maybe from FAANG/MBB/PE TC posts, just remember that 99% of life is still pretty much the same for everyone. You eat at the same restaurants, poop on the same toilets, live in similar neighborhoods, wear the same Patagonias, fly in the same metal cans ✈️, and maybe even drive similar cars whether your TC is 100k, 200k or 400k. There’s no use in earning tons more money than you actually need, and the “rich” life is still far away for those earning $1M
Stop being so obsessed with only FAANG for Tech. It's like being obsessed with only MBB for consulting and thinking everything else isn't real consulting😉.
Wharton EMBA worth it? Late career starter so limited white collar experience but interesting background/past life. Also have kids to support so can’t do a full time program. Want the MBA for career boost ($), as an entry to faang/MBB and to have more security for future opportunities. Worth it? Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?

Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.

Saturday marked 14 years since I was fired and started my own agency. Getting fired did not break me then and this pandemic is not going to break me now. Stick with it, everyone.
Anyone done Austalia's Work and Holiday Visa (the year for adults under 30 thing), and snag an industy or industry-adjacent gig? How hard is it to land one when it's so short-term from the start?
How soon is too soon to follow up on interview? Interviewed last Thursday and sent the standard thank you right after. But I know they were wanting to move pretty quickly but I haven’t heard back.
I’ve been with my client on a fucked up project for a year and 4 months. The client likes me but I’m miserable. I’ve been requesting a project transition plan since December. It’s now May and I have no roll off date in sight. I am interested to know what others have done to transition off of long term projects. I don’t want to leave my firm but I don’t know what options I have at this point. Your advise is appreciated.
