Currently a first year consultant doing data modeling with a BI tool (some SQL, Python) and leading a team of 4. I’m thinking about applying for FAANG for a cross functional role. Should I wait until I make Manager (in 2 years) and make a jump? Or should I jump as a C? Do they require a lot of technical knowledge?
Small town teachers....how do you get past the insulation? I can’t talk to anyone in my district about issues I’m having with admin because it’s a small town & they cover each other and gaslight you. The school district only cares about their PR and has vague policies that keep us from saying against them, yet we can’t say anything TO them either. My union rep is trying to help but she also said that it’s all too common for small towns. They always win & you just have to suck it up or get fired.
Any other consulting firms sent memos to their employees about new H1B guidelines? Essentially no more alt travel for H1B holders and at least one day a week in the home office?!? :-0
Anyone else feel odd when separated from their spouse post-pandemic? I have always been wildly independent - solo travel, full life, separate friends - but after being in the same space nonstop during the pandemic, I find it so hard to leave him for work or personal travel. I even miss him after nights out with friends! What is wrong with me? Anyone else?

MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.
I was passed up for a promotion after 1.5 years at the agency/in the role despite consistently great feedback and was told that I just needed more time in role. A guy with my experience level was....

MBB or FAANG biz ops?
does anyone feel that the exercise culture in consulting can be toxic? I’m all for exercise, but I feel like the consultants I know overdo it or spend $$$ to go to fancy exercise classes.
My (white) manager consistently gives me feedback that I’m “very literal” when doing assignments. She asks for something, I do what her directions say, and she tells me “oh you took that very literally. You’re very literal.” Obviously consulting is subjective and we’ve all had managers give vague directions leading to multiple iterations of work, but at what point do I push back? I’ve also noticed her say this about several black colleagues including clients and the senior mgr on the project.
