Culture is great. Work might be similar to what D has. We’re often competing for the same RFPs, but I’ve noticed the ones we lose are usually due to price. My close friend says this is because Deloitte expects employees to work overtime (without the overtime pay), whereas I’d say most MDs here aim to provide a slightly higher estimate to account for hours.

Definitely had to work weekends here and there, but my managers have usually found ways to compensate and staff additional resources if it’s becoming the norm.

Hi everyone. I’ve spent almost a decade at a very large saas company and it’s time for me to consider my next adventure. I am open to sales or account director positions but mostly focused on finding a great product with a great culture. I have been a top producer responsible for the largest global accounts and want to represent a company I really believe in. Any companies I should consider or advice?

Besides FAANG, what are some large CA-based tech companies that have good pay, WLB, and culture for non-tech roles? Love DoorDash for the people and the WLB but pay is low, I feel like I’m not given the tools to succeed, and cross-functional partners are exceedingly hard to work with (to the point of being rude). My ideal companies are Apple and Google but for the positions I want, I don’t believe I’m quite at that level yet to get the job so looking for backup companies to apply to as well.

I just wrapped up final rounds at Amazon for a marketing position at Prime Video. Curious if anyone here can speak to the marketing team culture in general at Amazon and what it’s like at Prime Video? I know Amazon has a reputation for being tough relative to other big tech but also know it can vary depending on the team so don’t want to be scared away without doing due diligence. It sounds like some of the intense PIP stuff is more for engineers?

Anybody have any pointers?
