How did you know that leaving consulting was the right decision? I’m a bit worried that I think things will be better in industry but that I’ll just be bored / not have as good career trajectory / etc. in consulting I have a strong network of people, I’m good at my job, and I think fairly compensated. I have a few offers on the table and can’t make up my mind - so curious as to what is it that pushed you over the edge?

Sort of went crazy over the food situation and put on 15lbs in two month. Please tell me it gets old very soon....
I'm a SD (2y exp) on my way to become a team lead then PM in a few months.I work in Scandinavia atm. I'd love to get a PM job later in Google so I'm trying to be strategic from now on.
I have a BA in comm and an AP degree in CS (2.5 years). As far as I can see I have 2 options: get a top up (1.5y) so I'd have a Bsc in CS then take an MsC or go for an MBA
1.which route is preferable if I'd like to apply for a PM role at Google?
2.what kind of companies should I work before applying at Google
Trying to decide if it's worthwhile to take a job at Google in the bay area. I didn't research anything about levels before hand. I have 15+ years. Started off the phone screen as L5 (which went horrible), after which they said I can do the onsite as L4 (which went great). But again they said they will only now consider me as L3. First team interview went well.
Should I relocate for effectively the same base pay but more expensive city? Is it likely I'll get promoted to L5 eventually?
What was your “Why Google?”?
Anyone else still waiting to hear back from their interview? Been about a week and heard nothing
For Google, how is the Global Solutions ladder (Global Product Lead role) compared to a Strategy and Operations role / ladder in terms of compensation and exit opportunities? I’d like to figure out which one to apply to, both seem to fit well with consultant skill sets.
I think I experienced racism, sexism or ageism at Google or may be not. I was introduced to this guy in leadership 2 months ago and it was really hard for me to get time with him or responses from him
Can relocation benefit be negotiated or is there a set formula used by the relocation team?
Are there any large differences between a Strategy lead and Program manager positions? Looking to transition and in the process for a couple of roles. Mainly concerned about job role, longer term progression and internal mobility (will be moving countries in a few years). Speaking to the HMs and reading the job descriptions show very similar job responsibilities for the two roles. Coming in most likely as an L5 in the US
If you made it to onsites and passed it but fail to land an offer is there a way to try and get another offer or accelerated process for another role?

Hello 🐠 how long did it take you to get a call from a recruiter after applying for a position?
Hi all. Recently went through the interview process at Google for an L5 non tech strategy role. Made it to final on-site interviews, but just got the email from the recruiter saying they’re passing due to “other candidates that were a stronger match”. I asked the recruiter to have a quick chat to close the loop. Anyone have any experience with this? I genuinely want to know areas I could improve/ask for overall feedback but also keep the door open for a future Google attempt.

+1. Or rather, if you're an Eng role, consider getting 1 x Chromebook and 1 x [something else].
Folks that switched to MacBook Pro from your Lenovo… how hard was the transition?
Pretty easy honestly. The first week was annoying because the command buttons are different, but I like it much better than windows now.
Im asking for a lenovo just because im used to windows!
I’ll be in a non-tech role. Still MBP?
I just switched from consulting (and therefore windows)! I got a chromebook, it works pretty well, specially since everything you’ll do (in a non-tech role) would be on chrome browser!
I also got the chromebook and I haven’t had any problems
