Any tips on escaping agency life? I've been doing this a long time and had a leadership role up until a few weeks ago. I'm talking to a lot of product companies for roles that I feel are at or below my level and getting dismissed because I've never run a department. Should I just start lying?

Concentrate on showing that even tho you worked at an agency for long you have the tech and management experience to scope and architecture solutions for a product company, read about the latest technologies not only on Frontend but also on backend solutions like Micro Services, headless cms, API, etc. Show you can plan and manage projects that are more than 6 months long and have not just web and mobile devs but alto devops and backend engineers, etc.

I started working at an agency two years ago and coming from product companies this are the biggest differences I find on the actual day to day work. Projects are smaller and mainly web/mobile development with no backend/db/devops work to scope neither develop, so if I’m the guy interviewing you I would expect you to know about those missing things at an agency.

I am contemplating a move to industry (PE firm) and currently in PA. It’s a tax director role.

For those of you who have made the change. Would you say your satisfied or bored?

My fear is that my technical skills won’t grow as fast as in PA since the consulting work would be outsourced and I would mostly be a liaison for the advisors. Tax technical is very important to me.

Also wanted to see if there are any questions you would ask at the interview using hindsight?

Hi!Would like to get some perspectives on the Walmart and Amazon offers that I just received. Slightly more interested in Amazon Fashion's work but it's offered at $80K less than Walmart...
A few questions here:
1) Is the Amazon brand better than Walmart that's worth $80K in TC?
2) Are Strategy roles better perceived than Marketing roles and will have higher long-term pay potential? (I went to business school where almost everybody wants to do Strategy...)
3) Is Amazon culture very concerning?
