Consulting

Can't decide if it's best to move to a less stressful job or not. Some days I love it, and am up for early promotion, other days I'm inconsolably sad and can't think of anything but applying elsewhere

Apply other places. Knowing you applied may help keep you from getting so sad. When they call you make the call about leaving or staying. Also look into different areas of your firm. It might just be the service line you are in.

Always keep your options open. If anything, applying different places will help you clarify your current set of expertise and maybe even direct the rest of your time in consulting

Once you've actually chosen to stick with your job there will be a paradigm shift. Also, huge ego boost when big name companies want you.

I spent a lot of time inconsolably sad and applied to some banks (also NYC based). Got some offers and with each one just couldn't see myself leaving for that - so I stayed. Good, reputable companies with salary increases and no travel. I still interview but after turning down the others I'm much happier

@Deloitte that sounds like exactly the right gameplan

So applying to others places just to turn them down bc it makes you "feel better" to be wanted somewhere else makes sense? Why waste yours or their time? Maybe I'm missing something...just wondering.

Main point is to get a new position you actually want. Side benefit is learning more about what you actually want.

Has anyone experienced being approached by a recruiter for a job that isn’t active on the companies careers site? I’m being asked to interview, but I’m skeptical that they have already filled the role and/or just want to say that they interviewed multiple candidates. Anyone have this experience? Any advice? I don’t want to waste my time going through the process for a phantom job. 😩

Reading through some possible interview questions for FAANG. One of the ones I've seen on Glassdoor are to design a basic architecture structure for something like Netflix or Twitter or Spotify. I've been researching online using AWS or GCP (still learning all the moving parts of architecture). Any advice on how the setup would be? I'm assuming you'd start with some Load Balancers. For Netflix maybe have different different APIs for signing up vs scrolling through possible movies?

A little while ago I worked on a project where the 2 associates (1 female and 1 male) were not exactly top tier and made really dumb mistakes. The male director noticed and mentioned to me 1 on 1 “why is she messing up so much? Is she on her period? Pregnant maybe?” At the time I didn’t react but now I know I should have. I was a senior associate at the time. What should I have said or done? Does anyone feel this comment is appropriate/justified?
