25. At MBB. Thought I wanted PE but I’m thinking FAANG PM type role might be better now. Ultimately I’d like to start my own business. Where are people who join PE 4-5 years down the line vs those who join FAANG?
Wonder if anyone can offer advice on which cert to pursue next? I obtained my CompTIA Security+ last year and wondering if I should go for the CySA+ or Pentest+ next. I also have my AWS CCP and will be sitting for the Solutions Architect soon as well. Currently not doing security stuff at work but would love to keep my skills going. I was hoping one of these next certs will help me finally break into a security role and love the idea of pentesting but not sure if the CySA+ is more beneficial.

Reposted in Compensation. What roles can I look at doing in Tech for a Manager in Cyber with 4 YOE in consulting + 1? Have CISSP as well and degree in CompSci if that matters. Also estimated TC for position. Though I’ve been “fast tracked” the grind of it with minimal pay is frustrating and debating if I can get higher TC have a relative or better title and enjoy a better WLB. Thanks in advance 🐠
Received an offer for 50% base increase at non-faang tech in product but the role is not set up to succeed. I’m leaning toward turning it down to find something where I can succeed, but the title and $ are great for the next move. WWYD?

Deloitte 🐠, I cleared an SM level interview process over a week ago and recruiter promised to send a written offer once it’s approved. I have not received the any written offer or communication in a week. Meanwhile another Deloitte team just reached out for similar role but different vertical. Do you think I should interview with the new team? Deloitte

I have an interview for a position at Slalom coming up for Slalom Emerge and was wondering what I should be expecting. I had a pretty good chat with the recruiter and I'm happily employed as is, but I'm always happy to test the waters. Any insights into the job, interview, negotiations process, working environment, culture, travel, etc.? It would be in the integration area. Thanks!
MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.

Sometimes I feel the need to correct someone else in our Zoom meetings, but it seems rude to just start talking over them and no one pays attention to the texts. What's the etiquette?
Can’t decide between Cornell’s Metro vs. Americas EMBA program. They both seem to be great and offer an Cornell MBA upon graduation. Americas costs about 155k while the Metro NY costs 205k. Both programs are 60 credits in different formats. I can’t seem to understand the difference in price. I like the Americas program because of its flexibility (can attend from selected cities across the US so I would not be stuck in NY). I like the Metro NY for the in-person classroom environment.

Anyone have advice for talking to teachers in your school that are upset with you? My 4th grade class didn’t show up today because the teachers are upset that student behaviors that are an issue in music are carrying over to their classroom. I understand their frustration, but nothing was communicated with me. I even thought things were going better this week.
