Difference between being employed as consultant vs full time at FAANG?

Posting as :

You are currently posting as works at

1. Better pay 2. Visibility into the impact of your work 3. Brand value 4. Relatively relaxed deadlines(better WLB) 5. More focus on the actual work rather than writing emails using unnecessary complicated words, or creating slides with this font, that font size, in this alignment 6. Less opportunity for diverse work in FAANG

Much better wlb and better pay. As a consultant, you aren't necessarily restricted to the same nuances as a full time employee, and your work is weighted differently

Consulting is very valuable for some years, especially for something like product management (not sure what your realm is) and then you want to end up in FAANG.

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?

Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true?
