Are people who try to get into a technical industry role from a consulting firm viewed in a negative way? I keep seeing posts about how an interviewer may doubt your technical skills just because you worked at Big4/consulting firm. Is a consulting firm bad way to start a career if you want to go industry? I am particular interested in cybersecurity roles.

Asking for my spouse. She is five months pregnant and has a amazon offer. She works for Deloitte too. Deloitte definitely has a better maternity leave but amazon is doubling her take home salary. Also agreed to work from home for two years. Thoughts? Stress wise her Deloitte practice ( strategy) is probably as stressful or more as compared to amazon role so it literally boils down to maternity benefits for us.

I’ve gotten a 2nd interview with another position within the same company, which would take me from being a contractor to staff. The interview is at the end of the week. I’m very excited about it, but I’m wondering when I should tell my manager that this is going to happen. I didn’t tell him before because it seemed like just another application that wouldn’t go anywhere. Do y’all have any advice?

I have left Deloitte after accepting another offer ( waiting to start the new role and taking time off between) . Now another dream role reached out to me for an interview. Should I tell them I am no longer with Deloitte if the HR asks? They had my old resume. Has anyone been though this situation? My main dilemma is I don’t know what to say why I left the job since the main reason was the new offer.

What’s general turnaround time from final candidate interview to decision / offer? Friend I referred for a SD role has gone through the process (2 Partner interviews, 1 SD interview) with the last interview occurring about two weeks ago. She hasn’t heard anything from HR and HR hasn’t responded to her emails asking on status. Not sure if that’s par for the course or an indication she got dinged.

My guess is the pay will be a 40% increase or better plus stock. Just wanted to share because except my wife I can’t really tell anybody.
