Meanwhile I’m still going through interview process with a unicorn start up and should wrap up this week. If I get a second offer, what are the consequences of reneging on the first offer?

None. You may not get a chance to work there for awhile but overall there are no issues with reneging.

If you get the 2nd offer…see if you can push it off 3 months, you stand to gain a lot of insight.

None.

Do you mind sharing the name of the first company? Thanks

Nothing really - they'll be frustrated and annoyed but will get over with. If the other role's a dream role, you gotta take it!

Just here to vent a little. I am looking to make a move to a new role sometime this year but haven’t begun actively looking / applying, I’ve just been responding to recruiters who reach out on LinkedIn with roles that look interesting. I am already exhausted 😅 there’s always something with these roles or the company. I can’t imagine getting the energy needed to actively look for the right fit, but also can’t imagine staying at my current job beyond this year. 🥲 anyone else or any advice?

Hello! Any women here in an executive role within a FAANG/tech organization? Over the past year I've had interviews with Google, Uber and Amazon/aws- and so far I've always resolved to stay within 'consulting' because I'm unsure if the 'exit' would be the right move for me. My question is, what is it like being an executive female leader inside a FAANG - and any guidance on moving into a FAANG as an external hired executive. Thanks & happy friday!

I received an offer from a quant fund. My offer letter doesn’t explicitly state my role/ title, that it’s NY based, and it’s full-time. The benefits aren’t specifically outlined either, just a blanket statement on I’m eligible. When I connected with the recruiter he advised the company doesn’t publicize titles, it’s a flat org. I find it very strange it’s not in my offer letter. Does this sound normal to others?
