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.

My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!
