Did anyone make a transition from being an MBB data scientist to a FAANG data scientist?
1. How did you differentiate your value proposition? Given the solid technical bar, does consult and business skills create an advantage?
2. How do you feel about the change?
3. Any tips on the preparation process?

Dislike big law? or Dislike firm? or Dislike practice area? I'm not sure I can tell. I feel very apathetic about everything I do (corporate) since it's so meaningless to me, but I have no idea what I would do differently if I left a firm. Thoughts on this? I've considered lateraling but I don't know if I understand my underlying dissatisfaction. Plus, I make ridiculous money sitting in my home office while my cousin works in a coal mine...why am I complaining?

Ok fishbowl family - I need advice. Rising senior 1 here and realizing that I genuinely get no joy out of audit.

My current employer wants 2+ YOE in a “professional environment” for the BDR role, which would likely be a barrier even with a referral.

Hello, everyone!

I have an interview for a relatively new law firm early next week. However, upon doing more research about them, I noticed that their website has only a black-and-white website about only what the law firm is about.

My questions are:

Is this a red flag?
How do you guys prepare for interviews specifically with law firms that have little to some information on their website and Glassdoor?

Thank you so much in advance!
