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.

Interviewing with Elixirr next week for a (Senior) Consultant role in NYC; recruiter connected me to opportunity. Concerns are that they do more execution than strategy and quoted compensation at $115K might be lower than industry average. Would appreciate any insight on reputation and career development prospects.

Has anyone received/know of a HireVue request from Accenture (Federal) with the title "Introduce Yourself" under the Job Title portion? Nearly a month ago I applied to a role (with a referral) and around six months ago I had applied to another role, which is why I was curious on which role this would be in reference to. I'm also just wondering if this is a "serious" screening interview or something HR uses to keep on file (just so I can prepare accordingly). Thanks!

A friend of a friend asked if I could refer her to my firm. I agreed (seems like a good candidate and decent fit) since it’s hard to get through just by applying directly online and she doesn’t have a recruiter. We haven’t really talked about the referral bonus. Should I split the referral bonus if she gets hired, or is it fair to keep it since I helped her get the job?
