Amazon has a good potential but heard a lot of horror stories about their culture. Every job recruiters talk about is high potential and visibility so I wouldnt trust any of that.

Yep, and it's a high turnover job. I've met people who handled the work well, but it's a pretty demanding job. Seems to be a good spot to grow if you're willing to sacrifice a bit, a job as a consultant at BCG would be better imho

1. What is an SVM position?

2. What is comp; not an all telling stat, but can be indicative of how they value the role

3. What year C are you, and how many years of experience do you have before BCG?

SVM is a high attrition rate role. L6 would limit you to ~130-150 base with total first year 170 max (excluding stock options). I’ve had a couple of friends who were scouted for this role while they were consultants in T1/2 companies but both of them didn’t have good feedback about the role or the interview process or post offer feedback.

Hey guys. First, I'd like to point out that I think we are in such an evolving industry as the workforce is constantly changing, and that is exciting! With that, I am seeing all different types of jobs. I am currently a doctoral candidate in I/O Psychology and working in an HR role (approaching 2 years of relevant experience). The combination of the two can be tricky, and I am wanting some advice on where I can take my career. Any hiring happening in your company that could use a phd candidate?
