I want to switch role as an AWS developer. But I have just learnt the things on my own in AWS. In interview I am asked questions based on real scenarios on which I am not having any experience. Any suggestions? Even if I do hands on on services like Linux academy or quiklabs, it would not help. (AWS cloud migration experience one can get if worked on a real project). Please help.
My former firm lost a multimillion arb in a case I was handling prior to my departure. I recommended against trying the case, but still find myself oddly plagued with guilt for the client. Anyone experience something similar?
Worst client room/location you've had? Just finished 5 weeks in a basement room with no windows and I couldn't be happier, I'm rediscovering the outside world
Three weeks to leave for MBA, assigned to a new project. Please send me some words of support to not throw everything away and give up just now!
Has anyone used the multi week option? Does that mean you can stay back at the client site each week instead of flying back home? How long can this be Done? Or has anyone booked long term apartments
Client brief: We sell something no one really wants or needs, and most of the people who buy it end up hating us for selling it to them. Go!
A partner said on a client call that we really miss an associate I’m filling in for and that the team should be up to speed when she gets back. I can’t help feeling a bit slighted by that. I get that she’s much more senior (I’m a 1st year who started a couple of months ago) but I don’t think I’ve done a bad job at all. My first brief was spot on arguments wise and didn’t have much redlines. Am I reading too much into it? Should I check in with him to ask if he’s unhappy with my work?
How can you tactfully push a client lead to encourage change from a direct report of theirs? I have a great relationship with the lead and the report, but the report is dragging on business processes

As a staff on the consulting side, does anyone else find it awkward to join a zoom call with the client before the manager/sm joins in?
I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
Anyone know how product managers are positioned at Apple? I haven’t heard too much about PMs there compared to at other FAANG. Is it “true” product management, agile, or more like project managers?
Here's the situation. I'm a freelance accountant. I have several part time clients, and one main 30-40/hr/week client. This is about the big one. The company has two co-presidents, but for the sake of clarity I'll call the person I directly report to the COO and the other the CEO - note the CEO also is the founder of the company. Again, I report to the COO. The COO is "working" in exchange for greater equity in the company and a crap ton of pay along the way. Cont.
Any good recommended books on how to build a scalable product and team? I'm looking for recommendations for two areas: 1) in general laying the groundwork in a startup to have the tools and especially processes in place to scale, and 2) tactical focus on building a SaaS project. I've been promoted into a management role from Dev roots, so need to learn more PM processes to be an effective manager in day job, plus would like to start building my own SaaS solution.
What are your opinions on having a website? I feel like it could go a long way me an identity. Is it necessary to have one right off the bat or did you wait until you had a solid client base first?

I switched two years ago from regional real estate/energy to a local small, but established residential real estate practice. While I’ve gained so much practical experience and run my own book here, I want to shift to a non-traditional remote role in real estate but keep getting turned down. I have strong credentials but I’m worried this small firm experience is killing my marketability to large companies.

I had an initial discussion with a recruiter at Microsoft for a director role. She mentioned that the base salary would be $185K. That sounds very low. But I need help understanding if that’s true at all? — This figure doesn’t account for bonuses and stock. It is purely base. For reference, I have 8+ years of experience. Does anyone know what is the average salary at Microsoft for a director level?
