I often see posts about people getting 350K exit or 450K or more in FAANG. Are those strategy folks from Big 4 or are there cyber folks too getting these exits ? I am making close to 200k as M3 in cyber . Not able to anything that would pay more than this in non-consulting ? What roles should I target ?
Got messaged by a recruiter who said she works for a large fintech company and wanted to set up time to chat. Personally, I don’t like to go into recruiting calls blind so I asked if she could provide the name of the company and a job description, to which she said she can’t really give any additional details at this point in time. Is it normal for recruiters to do this? Or does it mean the role / company isn’t that good? I don’t want to waste 15-20 minutes of both of our times if possible.
Any fish aware of Olive AI? Got approached by a recruiter for a Solution Architect role. They seem young, but interesting and promising. Not sure if their comp will be robust or not. Curious to see what others know/think!
I have this constant feeling of doing something better then what I am doing now. Bigger role, better pay, more growth, higher impact .... is what my brain is consumed with all the time. It’s not new, I have been feeling like this for as long as I remember ... even when I was in school. Although it has served me well so far career wise, but sometimes I feel that I missing out on my present life... does anyone feel like this too? I am not sure if this normal. I am in mid-40s, in case that matters.
6th year L&E associate here and thinking about transitioning to a position with better WLB.

Tips/ advice much appreciated!

How are Asians ok with being discriminated against in both higher education and hiring? I am a URM and I know that if I was put into a position like them I wouldn’t be so quiet about it.
I romanticized being a consultant while working in industry. Then I got a consulting job, a couple promos, and now the idea of consulting just makes me roll my eyes. I love the pay and I don’t mind working hard, w/ long hours, but the “business of consulting” is exhausting (e.g. maintaining utilization, selling engagements, 6k iterations of a deck, etc). Great company, great co-workers, and interesting engagements.... I can’t be the only one feeling this way. Time to exit or is this a phase?
Hiring manager during first round at Facebook said let’s move you to the next round (s), and that was early last week. Since then no word from the recruiter. Is that weird ? Or did they find someone better ? Followed up this week, but nothing. This is what ghosting looks like then🙄
Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.
Any litigators who prefer litigating over clerking, or the other way around? I’m senior at a major appellant-side litigation firm. My boss has told me that there is a clerkship opening with a federal judge that I admire, and with his rec I would be a shoe-in. I like litigation and the opps it provides to drive change in the law, but this opp could open up some doors and give work life balance. On the other hand, I don’t know if clerking might be boring, or frustrating reading bad briefs. Thx!
