My buddy went from F to one of the As.


interesting! do you think it would be difficult to find a similar job somewhere not as high as pay but still pretty good?

Every time I look outside of FAANG I see less pay for more work that might--MIGHT--be more creative but usually isn't.

Gilded cage.

But fwiw I have recruiters for nonfaang inhouse and agencies in my inbox weekly. None of them pay enough tho. Trouble with FAANG isn't finding more work, it's finding work that compensates as well for such little effort.


As a brand designer with FAANG experience you definitely can consult and freelance for all sorts of companies/shops! The experience will dazzle most prospective clients. People treat FAANG like the ivy leagues (and they're just as bullshit)

Hello there,
A friend of mine quit before 3 years of bond period but she did not sign any bond during her induction. But now they are not giving her experience letter and they have sent a notice. When asked for the bond agreement, the company is not sending her that(which is because they dont have any bond agreement with her signature on it). They are demanding 5L which is not at all worth it. So, how can she tackle this situation. Any advice appreciated.

Hi fishes,

I got an job confirmation offer mail with salary structure from an mnc organiztion but not the actual offer letter, the HR is saying that HR head is on vacation so they will release the offer letter in two weeks.

But they are asking me to give resign based on the mail that I received.

Is it ok ? to resign based on the mail confirmation or should I wait for the offer letter to be released.?

Please help me out in this.


P&T is ‘central to our FY23 strategy’ and yet we had to beg and plead to even get a handful of P&T Directors to represent at the Director CLeX happening this week in San Diego.

Not feeling the ‘one firm’ narrative we push - completely tone deaf and sends a horrible message for P&T Directors.

Major missed opportunity to start bridging the divide - particularly at a level where the real work gets done.
