It depends on your experience and goals but I think the COO role has more versatility.

What do they usually do after, join another startup as COO?

I think those are very interesting roles at the startup level. Usually around series a/b startups will poach executive hires. 5 years in ops at a startup + manager level roles > head of ops/finance at a startup will pay you well and then you’ll be set up nicely for these

Considering leaving for another firm job, one year in. Thoughts? New position would be a better practice area fit and would only work with clients in the industry I want. Currently it’s about 60% of what I’d like. Also, current firm seems to be stagnating with low hours to go around. I’m worried about not making hours, missing my bonus, and low professional development. Comparable on prestige & exit options and would be $5k less. Just worried about burning bridges and leaving “too soon.”

Gonna be starting b-school soon and found out that most associates go through case interviews that cover all topics, meaning i have to start learning other areas. I’ve never done case interviews before and have no clue where to get started 🙃...any tips for someone in my position? Helpful tips/resources? Thanks fam!

Looking for some insight! What role(s) in GCP would be a fit for someone who is great at building research prototypes and then leveraging/leading software engineers to realize the details and build them out? Eg is there a role responsible for bridging the gap between the 'cool things' clients want to do and translating that into a prototype and technical requirements for others to code (in the networking/AI/ML/data science space)? What would that be called at google? Thank you!

I just received a job offer for a position that better aligns with my skills and education. It’s also something I want to do and would get me out of banking, so to speak. The proposed salary offer is only 10% more than what I am making now, though. I currently have a fully remote job and have tons of free time and flexibility. I love my current job as it affords me time with my kids and it’s stress free. The new job is in an office setting and will have more responsibility. Not sure what to do?

How much of a salary increase (%) is standard or expected when switching consulting firms for a similar level / role?

Appreciate your thoughts & any advice!

Looking at 1400 hours year-end. I’ve consistently asked for work and recently let a couple partners know that’s it’s clear I won’t be making hours. Aside from the convo that I initiated, nobody has ever said anything to me about it, which is weird since they have access to hours. I’m sure it will be a topic at my review, but how likely that I’ll get fired during/shortly after my review?
