Bain Parthenon is great honestly so you can’t go wrong, but Bain is going to do more for you longer term given the network, breadth of opportunities, and industries. Parthenon gives you higher base pay I believe at the start, but it evens out over time IIRC

Agreed. We're a good firm, but if you're doing a straight money comparison Bain will win out.

Both are great firms but go Bain. Just a bigger name with more clout and you actually get to say trade. We still make guap over here though.

I think achieving a balance is best. The strategy work gives you the exec level perspective, but the implementation work is often the most personally rewarding

I am in cloud engineering. My current salary is 140k and this is my milestone year to become manager. I have been getting offers from non FAANG companies but capped at 150- 165k. All roles are typically through service companies and of cloud engineer profile. My dilemma is that I don’t know if I should exit to lesser known firms since brand is of some importance to me. 1. Are the salaries being quoted normal for cloud ? 2. Is it worth leaving at this point of my career or should I make the move

Just got turned down by Amazon after two extensive writing assignments, 6 interviews and hours spent preparing. And their policy doesn’t allow them to give feedback when an offer is not made.

Does anybody have a view on the growth path / trajectory for a Strategy and Ops Lead? I didn't get a very clear sense in my interviews, esp. because it feels like there is 1 manager for the team and so there is not a lot of scope for organic upward movement. Is it only through lateral moves within the org? You get enough tenure for the next role then find an opp to switch?
