Got an interview for Cisco Product Manager role. Anyone have any experience with their culture, compensation and WLB?
Planning to apply to BCG. My buddy is an ‘Associate Director’ for BCG Platinion. Would a referral from him work if applying to BCG as a Generalist Consultant?
I have a but of a situation. Just started a job as a Sr associate and found out a program manager was hired a month earlier who has equivalent exp/education as me. I like my job but feel that I shouldn’t be in a more junior role than this manager since we have very similar backgrounds. I interviewed for this role after they had already hired the program manager (I didn’t know at the time I was interviewing). Thoughts on what I can do?
Anybody in technical accounting advisory? Currently interviewing for a role at CFGI and looking to hear some opinions about day to day, types of projects, and if you enjoy or hate it and why.
Did a round of brand side interviews with a senior level team and want to write a thank you note that doesn’t come across too thirsty. What would a senior person appreciate in a note if they got one? They have all been there 10 plus years. Just thank for their times and reiterate what value I can bring to the role? Agency side is so lax I haven’t had to write one my last few jobs 😓
My boomerang back to Accenture is in the works. What can I expect of the interview process. Would I have to jump through hoops again? It hasn't been long since I left (~9months)
Hi, interviewed with a firm two days ago and told the manager to let me know of the process soon as I am getting other offers too. Manager expressed that they will process fast to the second round, but still haven't heard. Good time to follow up today or wait till next week? Need that offer badly.
What can I expect to walk into during an interview for Accenture? Do they give case studies?
What’s the typical turnaround time for verdict after final round of interviews? Does following up with recruiter bode well? Or will it diminish future ability to negotiate? Context: had interviewed last week and was informed that the hiring manager was on vacation so the result might be delayed
have an interview at united airlines, any fish willing to talk about their experience there?
W. T. F? Absolute nothing in response to over 100 apps I’ve sent in over the course of a year + half. Actually I lie. I did get 2-3 interviews over the course of that time, but then, crickets! I’m not that bad guys trust me! I’m absolutely dumbfounded and lost at this point. Try to stay away from LinkedIn where everyone and their moms seem to be killing it. To boot I’m on an O1 visa (extraordinary talent) but that extraordinary part makes the whole thing more ironic and funnier haha. Hire me!
Hey all! Interviewing and need some insights about accepting a non-tech product marketing job. I currently work in SaaS but was offered a higher paying job in educational publishing. It’s a non-tech product marketing role. I want to take the job but I don’t know if moving out of tech would be a bad move for a product marketer? Would it be harder to pivot back to tech?
Married 1.5 years long distance. I took a job to be with him that pays twice what he earns now. I’ve been sharing every detail of my job hunt, interviews to salary negotiations. He has been very supportive but sometimes I feel guilty I’m rubbing it into his face and I have goals about going up the ladder fast, get/ experience the fanciest things and reaching a certain role/salary in life. I fear when I move in things may change, I’ll feel held back, may need to take low pay to feel we’re equal
A friend of my got Interviewed by Hashedin on Monday. When can he expect reply from HR regarding next step? Please reply
I’ve been going on interviews for product / owner and scrum master roles and the feedback I get “we feel you don’t have as much experience working with a team. For example, UX and QA.” I’m confused bc in my projects I had to do those roles (though they were smaller scale) How do I convince companies I’m capable?
To everyone interviewing, to hopefully calm some nerves: The process is really long. Not hearing back from the recruiter for a few days, or even weeks, is completely normal. There can be multiple weeks between rounds and then multiple weeks before you get feedback. Don’t think too much into it. There is no indication of positive or negative by no response. On average it takes 3+ months, and usually 2+ application attempts, to get hired. Good luck! 🍀

If I started a new position (not Deloitte, Im in industry now) in July of this year, would a typical company give me a raise at year end? I took a step down from Senior to Staff when I accepted the role so a raise would be super nice!

When you flex trip, do you expense the uber from the airport to the hotel in your alt location?
Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
If you got fired, would you care?
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?
