Big 4 Strategy M here. I’m thinking about making an exit to a company that seems to have an incredible culture, and phenomenal wlb. Brand recognition aside, the company is PlayStation, or Sony Interactive Entertainment, and the role is within Product. Yes, not as sexy tech or other gaming companies, but it seems like a great job. Potential ceiling might drop a bit (or a lot) but I will for sure be happy my entire life there. Thoughts? Am I throwing in the flag tonight early?

Okay so I was recently fired from Company A but immediately I applied at company B via a strong reference and was offered position that I accepted. Since I am on H1b, I didn’t reveal in the interview that I was let go, now that I am joining the new firm should I somehow tell the people that interviewed me that I was let go? I guess I don’t know how to handle this as I am afraid they might come to know in future, will it matter? Please help am in psychological dilemma

If I stay at my current job, I’ll be manager by the time I leave for NYC or should I make the jump to B4 soon? Does “B4 preferred” outweigh my chances even if I’m a manager when comes down to it?
