Hey all - upcoming interview with Amazon for supply chain program manager role. Anyone who has gone through the process have some wisdom to share in terms of questions to expect? Thanks for your help!
We have HHI of 260k excluding bonus. Currently own a house (current value is 440k) with 45% mortgage remaining. Planning to buy a new house of 500k. Combined mortgage of both house would be approx 4.7k per month. We both max out 401k and I normally invest 25k via megadoor roth + 2 529s for both kids. Q is Can I afford new house or should I sell current buy and book the profit since realty mkt is so high and our house has the max value currently?
Are you spending more or less than you were pre-lockdown/stay-at-home? I feel like most people are saying they’re spending less, but I’m definitely spending more on food delivery, groceries, home goods, and an ergonomic WFH set up. 😥
Met with a CCO for a role on a notoriously “challenging” account. Thirty minute Zoom, nothing in-depth. A few days later the recruiter emails like “Great news. We’ve talked to many people but they’d like to make an offer to you!” I’m thinking to myself, it was a 30 minute call, I’ve never met my direct manager, potential partner(s), etc...So these guys are just desperate to fill this role, right?
How many days does TCS take to release offer letter after having salary negotiations with HR ?

Book recommendation: can anyone recommend a good leadership book for aspiring (not current) people managers? Perhaps on how to get to the leadership level, or how to lead effectively as an IC. Cheers!
