I interned in their Sacramento office during undergrad. Very high turnover.

like

Sacramento is a small middle- and back-office operations shop. Wouldn’t base any decision on that. @OP with what team/division are you interviewing?

Don't want to divulge too much but it's at HQ.

Worked with then in Boston for half a year, generally positive experience. They occasionally took Wednesday as work from home days but other than that it seemed like standard big finance norms

@OP Drop me a burner if you want to talk in more detail. Spent several years there in varying capacities. Overall, good company and good experience while I was there.

For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

I interviewed for a position remotely 3 weeks ago with the 3 partners of an agency at the same time, and it went well. The CFO then took 30 minutes after the initial hour to talk more and she asked that I reach out to her for more questions as well as to let her know when I have relocated as I told them that I am about to move. After 3 weeks, I sent a follow-up note to the HR contact and no response all last week. Shall I try contacting the CFO directly since she did ask that I do? Thoughts?
