Option 2. Going back to consulting in this recession is throwing at least 2-3 years away.

Why do you say that?

Go to FAGMAN and don’t look back

Option 2. It will be easier to go back to Option 1 if at some point you‘re interested again. The mix of consulting and industry experience is quite a most wanted on the market.

like

Option 2. You left big 4 because likely either you knew consulting wasn't for you long term, or you preferred to work in tech. Going back to consulting would be ok for 2 years, but you'd probably be looking for the door again soon enough. Plus, consulting is probably more hours and more risky than GAFAM tech, without higher pay to offset these negatives. However, if you think that 2 years in consulting would get you to the next level in tech, then it might be worthwhile.

Option 2. Option 1 is for those that cannot make it for Option 2, within the current market.

2. No question. You can always go back to consulting

like

Initial instinct was option 1 for better immediate fit, but option 2 seems a better brand for long term CV

YOE

Option 2 seems to be the way to go. Have you been in tech the whole time? What's your skillset?

Faangm any day. H0w wide you clear it op. I need tips. And is director at parthenon?

What is the package and location for both options

Those GAFAM levels are Manager levels, not director levels. You would need to promote 1/2 more levels to become a director which can take awhile.

FWIW, I was a Sr Mgr, 10 YOE, and moved directly into a L66 role at MSFT.

Hi 🐠! Class of 2017 here and found out yesterday that I’m being held back a year (as a 3rd year instead of 4th). I feel totally blindsided / actually cried on the Zoom. I’ve reached out to partner-mentor in other groups and they explained that this isn’t a demotion but an opportunity to have more time to acquire mid-level skills before being thrust into that role & failing. I GET that but I feel this is something that should have been messaged BEFORE the review. Such an erosion of trust. Advice?

I have been through several at this point and not gotten the offer. Received very positive feedback from the teams about my performance but in each case they said it was very competitive and ended up going with someone with slightly more direct experience. Tough to go through several 6+ week multi round processes and not convert. Any help or advice appreciated!
