Consulting

Heard horror stories about Amazon’s dog-eat-dog culture. Does that apply to business roles as well? Any fish saw it first hand?

Amazon may be dog-eat-dog, but fortunately, consulting is the other way around.

Other way around would still be dog-eat-dog unless they meant eat-dog-eat?

Worked at amazon- beware their culture is almost opposite of EY/consulting. It feels like a startup and everyone is fighting for resources to please uncle Jeff. Stock bonus is a huge plus though.

Oh I didn’t get the sarcasm because I heard Amazon is worse (at least in consulting team work is big)

Looking for opinions on this specific cancel culture thing that happened: I think it's okay for someone to send sexually suggestive messages and DMs to another person if they think they are 18+. Once that person confirms they are NOT 18+, the person should immediately stop sending those messages. This is what happened to that actor Chris D'ella. I think this is perfectly fine(in fact I think this is ideal behavior?) can someone educate me on why people are upset over this?
