Anyone made a transition from FAANG to B4 or MBB at PPMD level? I understand that culture and WLB is different... but was the transition hard or easy? I am a senior leader with FAANG and exploring options. My background is in sales, delivery, solutions development etc, MBA and MS. Thank you.

What is causing you to want to leave, C1? Most people I know in B4 (and some MBB) want to move to FAANG, not the other way around.

Honestly if ownership is your goal, I think the chances of owning something as a consultant are much lower than they are in tech. Why don’t you try to transition to a smaller tech company with a product you care about/ could own instead?

YOE?

Yes, it's possible. Position yourself to showcase your selling experience. That is the most critical factor they'd evaluate you on for that level.

Why do you want to leave Amazon?

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?

I feel like he needs another feline friend and companion.
