I interviewed there. The roles are so weird like 4+ years to be a specialist, pretty low pay, and 10 days of PTO. Not to mention the whole working for the greediest man in the world part

Yes. And I love it. Much better than agency IMO.

Might be an in appropriate question here but can someone please tell me names of recruiting agencies that help non-US citizens without work authorization in the US find employment in the US (e.g. connecting with employees willing to finance H1B visas). Experience is over 4 years is at one of the leading management consultancies. Open to diversity of roles in corporate strategy, within consulting (not picky given visa processing likely weighting down the chances in the first place).

My partner had an interview where a full naked body (either from a roommate or s/o?) was exposed on the interviewers side of their Zoom background. No apology or acknowledgement towards the situation was ever expressed during/after the interview. She decided to bring it up to HR and they completely brushed it off as well. She is emotionally scarred and in such a slump by the situation and job search in general. Is this normal agency behavior, especially from HR?! So grossed out by the response.
