Can I / How should I put a FAANG client on my resume? Either the name of the specific company or “FAANG company” or “Fortune X Technology Company” or something else? I’d like to know what you think best balances the credit you get for working for one of these companies, would be the least off-putting to recruiters, and obviously would not share information that should not be publicized

Do not put the client name on your resume. Instead use something generic like "healthcare payer ($1B revenue) or fortune 100 healthcare company" You want to protect our clients anonymity

I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized. Joined a larger supposedly hip consultancy with local market model with great expectations and am finding myself let down by the experience - the client, work, teamwork and collaboration, technical content is not per what was promised and feels like I am back to my b4 days. I was a fool to fall for the kumbaya in consulting crap - I am best developing products with great teams. Industry looks down on me. What are my options?

I think the answer is yes to both. Will this cause an issue with my application?

Do you find companies today interview without empathy, over-valuing technical skill, pressure tests, and first impressions? A follow-up to this, if you’ve been hired by a company based on your skills, ability to perform under pressure, and first impression- did you feel you made the right decision once settled in your role? I’m analyzing the evolution of interviews and a human-centered approach.
