Currently a PM at MSFT, was wondering how common having an MBA is for PM @ FAANG/other companies
Really ready to make a life change so I'm asking this bowl for help. I want to get a job in data analytics, but I work in sales right now. In terms of the best bang for my buck and best chances of getting hired, should I go back and get my degree? Or should I look for an online program or certification? Which is better? Thank you in advance.
What companies pay for employees to get an MBA? Trying to put together a list. Thank you.
6 YoE at a bank and incoming offer from Deloitte financial services NYC. I will likely not move for less than 170k TC. Is this fair? Am interviewing at Mck and they pay same post mba comp to all.
Left MBB 2 years post Mba to pursue equivalent pay and amazing wlb in a “big old tech” strategy team (think IBM, Dell, HP). I thought boring work would be fine in the context but after 1 year it’s getting to me. How would you think about exit timing to avoid “leaving too fast” but also avoiding becoming branded as an old tech guy? Does the old tech experience look bad for FAANG-like prospects?
Hello, looking to take the CPA exam in Indiana. Is there any recommendations for someone or company to review my qualifications before I submit it? I believe I have to take a few more business courses, but want to make sure.
Anyone able to share the current post MBA salaries at each of the MBB. If they haven’t been raised recently, any word of incoming increases?
Additional data point for a current M7 candidate debating whether to stay in the US or return to SG - recent US salary increases are very tempting.
Just passed CISSP at first attempt and wanna share with all of you :) All my support for those who are preparing the cert, you can do it !!

Cert? Not worth if I'm studying for cissp?
Hi everyone! In this field, when choosing a masters degree program is it more beneficial to get a degree in Human Resources to further my knowledge in HR (my undergraduate degree is in Economics) , an MBA, or Data Science Degree due to the fact that HR is becoming more data driven as well as get a PHR / SHRM-CP certification?
What's the industry's view on the CISM cert? I know the CISSP is like the gold standard but what about the CISM? Lots of higher level roles require one or the either so it seems like there is value?

Working with this client and sadly I'm 30 sign ups short and the due date is tomorrow. Thought I'd reach out and perhaps get a few of you guys to assist. It's a bank, though the campaign was a success the client obsesses over figures, they won't like that report when I send it over.
So, if you can do with an extra mobile bank account ,please get one here. You could also get it an not use it, up to you. Very easy sign up here 👉 :https://bit.ly/BankThatPays

What are the pros and cons of joining a Captive Organization for Salesforce ?
It is true that in service based consultings the learning curve will be better coz we'll get to work on a lot of projects compared to a captive organisation ?
How should one decide? Can someone list out the pros and cons of both. It would be really helpful for a lot of people.
Thanks in Advance!

I hold an offer of 18LPA from KPMG with joining date of 7th September. (Wfh)
I applied at Workday on 15th May and went through 7 technical rounds of interview and received a verbal offer letter of 21LPA (hybrid)
Now apparently their technical panel "forgot" about the interview and wants to have a discussion again as 8th technical interview. HR says their joining date will be 19th September.
Should i join KPMG?

Had an interview last week. Recruiter (who is a recruiter for the firm itself as I applied directly) emailed me today asking how I thought the interviews went. Does this mean anything? Wouldn’t a recruiter only reach out to schedule another round of interviews or to reject you? Haven’t heard back since replying this morning.

Advice: I'm taking over a new thread, and I've been shadowing the current lead. The development team appears to need a LOT of handholding. During our daily standup, I find that we spend over 45 mins (15 min meeting) daily going over code. There is so much handholding. I do not have a strong background in the language that they are using. I'm very concerned about the strength of the team. I'm not sure if I should inform my manager? I don't think I have the expertise to lead the team cont....
About to Join Deloitte Cyber Risk after college. What type of work I will he doing
— also work life balance and Utilization prospective?
I've been in manual testing for 80% of my career. Despite attempts to transfer into a more code-centric role, I never got the opportunity to do so. Now that I'm in a management role, I feel like it's too late to enhance my programming skills.
Suppose I want to transition into a developer role, will self-study be sufficient for passing the necessary requirements for coding jobs? Lately, I've been learning python and using what I learned by solving problems at leetcode.
I'd like to get some perspective on those 2 job opportunities. What would you choose for a career boost?
- Big 4 - USA - Cloud transformation
- Accenture Strategy Technology - CIO advisory (outside USA)
For the context : 10 YOE, non hands-on tech transfo consulting, been working in Europe my whole career

Cloud Managed services question: How do Deloitte, Hitachi or the several other public cloud infrastructure & managed services companies distinguish themselves from managed service offerings by CSPs such as AWS Managed services?

Planning on leaving D at the M level
Don’t got to UMD. Georgetown is okay, but might be better to consider Darden in the DMV area. Wharton will be a good investment too. Just depends on what you want to do with it. If you want to stay in the DMV and work in DC, you don’t need to go to Wharton. If you are open for a career change and get away from Government work, then go to Wharton and the investment will be worth it. Wharton can one you a job anywhere across the US.
Darden in DMV only offers EMBA
It matters. It matters a lot.
If those are your choices, please seriously consider Wharton over schools in DMV. Where you get your MBA matters a crap-ton.
I don’t think it matters. But the heart wants what is wants. I too want to go to Wharton.
Try to get a fellowship
It does only if it is ivy. Later all BS. Placements are key. Your first two jobs post MBA up to 3 years which ever is first will have influence of your MBA school. Everything else will be your work experience.
They do. Honestly, consulting firms see this a lot. For example a Cornell team tends to have pseudo network within organization and that helps you to get better projects via that network. Those are some additional perks. In Industry especially tech, experience will matter more.
Also why would mba be important for tech?
At the same time the best non technical business and sales role people are the ones who can learn technology and learn the limits, realistic time lines, and culture and motivation of tech people.
Yes it really does matter. The M7 (if US) or INSEAD and LBS (if international) are the only ones that actually provide a return that makes the MBA worth it. UMD is not going to get you into anywhere you can't go already.
Inside of the M7, INSEAD, and LBS, each school has a high degree of connections with certain industries. Take a look at employment statistics for graduates at each to figure out where the candidates are employed and where your future network would be strongest.
Wharton is not valued at D. Probably better with T20 schools if you plan to stay long at the firm
What’s the rate of return by doing one or the other. How long is it going to be take make up the money? If you think you can make more than 75% of what you will be making after you earn that MBA it may be worth it. If not just slog away.
Yes it does matter. Getting one from Hult for example or other run of the mill places is looked down upon. But mostly target school attendees and recruiters do so. At the end of the day your wellbeing and life situation matters the most.
Where you do your MBA matters a shitload. Really. If you are doing a STEM degree not so much. Opens doors. Don’t sweat the small stuff. The difference in income / oppty cost will be nothing compared to where you will end up.
It definitely matters. I was ignorant and didn’t even know what mgt consulting was, and decided on a non-target MBA right after undergrad. Waste of tuition. I couldn’t break into strategy from my first few years in industry but am happy with my advisory career. But I know my exit opps will never be as great.
Honestly I would consider just leaving off my non-brand name MBA off my resume if I ever apply to prestigious firms like FAANG or MBB (for implementation) in the future. At least my undergrad is a tier 1 school.
