Consulting Exit Opportunities

Got a client solutions role at Facebook but also a strategy & product analytics opp at NYT. If strategy & product is end goal, is NYT a better choice? Scared to give up FAANG

Gosh the NYT job sounds really interesting to me personally. I’m sure they overall hire less than FAANG. Also I have a friend who went from D to FB last year and he said he’s hating it so much he wants to quit. To each his own but to me the NYT job sounds more interesting. One is analytics and one is sales - both could get you to product management but you decide from which angle.

Go for role over company. You can always switch companies with experience but doing one thing at FAANG doesn’t make it any easier to transition to the role you actually want to do

I’ve heard FB is more sales oriented

CS is definitely more sales oriented so if you don’t want to do that, don’t take it

I get increasing more fed up with leads who keep saying "let's push the envelope" but are then too afraid to present anything to the client because they're afraid to rock the boat.
