Tech SM to Engineering Manager at FAANG.

You have to have years of technical heavy development experience to be able to manage an engineering org at a tech firm.

SM is different for each firm. How many YoE do you have?

I exited to managing their professional services organization. I’ve seen others manage certain industries as well.

I see. I do work in cloud tech arch delivery and come from software engineering background so I think that the experience is lined up. I was wondering if ppl move onto like TPM positions or like their professional services, etc.

I had the option of going TPM route but chose EM as it closely aligned with what I have been doing.

Last round of interview coming up for an analyst/associate role in IB M&A. I have 2 years of experience in Big4 M&A.

They will provide me the PC. What would you expect an IBD case study to be like? I’m not sure if I have to build everything from scratch or if I can use some ready-made layouts.

Moms, I need advice. I’m one month in at D (previous consultant, spent last 5 years in industry as a leader of leaders) and came in at Mgr - and I *hate* it. I’m 13 weeks with our first and mat leave was a huge factor in coming to D, so feeling trapped. I spend more time dealing w/ asshole client SM (not my project SM) than doing work. My coach is great, but her advice was basically, “D is full of assholes 🤷🏻‍♀️, get used to it.” Is it too soon to leave? Especially pregnant? What to tell recruiters?
