Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
Pre-Covid - being told that they can give you a 2.5% raise only due to limit policies - does that mean it's true, or that you did a terrible job and only getting a slight increase because you asked?

Analyst has been unresponsive for past 2 weeks, VP and I (Associate) confirm that it’s to both of us. Perhaps analyst found a new job or whatever but shouldn’t leave us in the dark. At what point do we raise this with the Staffer? I don’t want to feel like a snitch, but VP hasn’t addressed with staffer either so not sure if I should raise? Been working as the analyst on existing staffing in the meanwhile cuz work still needs to get done.
Would anyone move to a different firm that is unstable but gives a promotion plus 50% increase for same job?

For those who have made/making the move from FDD over to FP&A, how do you address the lack of financial modeling skills in interviewing? Seems like a big gap when at Manager or above level when that’s one of the biggest parts of the FP&A function.

Amazon FLDP vs Gartner Consulting (post-MBA level). I am worried taking Amazon will close the door for consulting in the future.
