Looking to exit to industry - I have 6 YOE, MBA from top 15, computer engineering undergrad, and recently acquired AWS Solutions Architect certification. How’s the current hiring situation at tech firms? How are my chances for FAANG?
I’m a staff at a midsize firm. Only been here for 10 months but want to go to big 4. Most big 4 career pages are only hiring senior positions… will I have any luck securing a position preferably in audit by end of year?
I had my onsite 5 weeks ago, and recruiter reached out last week saying I cleared Hiring Committee, and that he’s waiting for VP approval before we move on to compensation talk. How long does the VP approval typically take? And what is the probability of rejection at this stage? Also, how many more review stages are there before I am made a written offer (assuming I clear VP approval)? Thanks!

Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills. I have experience doing basic data analysis but not at the level of a data scientist. What would you recommend I do to gain these data scientist skills? I think the end goal would be to transition from cybe
Currently in IR and want to move to a better work life balance role....maybe engineering. Do engineers get paid more than responders/analyst? Looking to get the AWS SAA and maybe try to squeeze my way into a cloud sec role since i have about a year of AWS exp.
Fired without severance...haven’t signed anything yet. Is severance something that can be negotiated with HR? I have a call with them on Monday to discuss.
I wanted to post this for those who see and those who need to see: I, along with you, feel dejected by my current position. But I went to an absolutely no name school and could not find a job out of college for 5-6 months. Randomly got an interview request from PwC for a position I never applied for through LinkedIn. All this to say, everyones path is different and yours will work out how it should. Everything happens for a reason, assuming you always put your best foot forward. May we succeed.
‘‘‘Tis the season for the layoffs
Would you get fired if you edit your department partners’ picture and send it to your colleague?
Given the current scenario, seems like getting laid off is a very real possibility. What is the severance package like at EY, PwC, Deloitte? Just curious
Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
I have an offer from KPMG, and I am in talks with collabera, they are offering about 35% hike which will be 100% hike from my current ctc, while KPMG offers 65% on my current ctc. KPMG is a research and stakeholders management role and collabera offers strategy role including working direct with VP. I know the company is pretty small when company to KPMg, should I proceed with the interview?
Newly laid off and considering going into consulting. Has anyone done it with a VC or PE firm? If so, I’d love to connect.
Any Marriott, Hyatt, or Hilton hotels on Cape Cod you recommend that are in walkable areas?
I live alone and have loved the time not traveling but WFH has really started getting to me the past few weeks. On top of that, I got a series of bad news this week that really took a toll on my mental health (one has affected my ability to visit family), and I’ve never felt this alone in my life. I miss having an office to go to and see others in. Even started skipping workouts & cooking, both of which I love. Could use hugs and inspiration to get past this hump
I’m currently an L6 Enterprise Sales Leader at AWS. Curious if anyone can share information on total compensation for an equivalent role at GCP or Azure?

Say that I get interviews to Wharton and Booth - what does the timeframe look like for interviews? Last year interview decisions were released mid October - do interviews usually take place 1-2 weeks after or later?
Book recommendations for newly minted managers?
I’ve already postponed an interview for a job (that I don’t really want) twice and now I have a client conflict again. At this point should I just email the recruiter and say I’m no longer interested?
Can we transfer life insurance portfolio to an another client/firm? I am currently with AXA and looking to get maximum yield/return. Any suggestions? Tips?
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.
Does anyone have any suggestions for leveraging an earned-but-unpaid bonus at your existing employer to counter a job offer? My firm is among the biglaw firms that have announced special bonuses to be paid out later this year, and I have an in-house offer in hand.
Can anyone advise on the interview process/compensation range for an Associate Director level position (Supply Chain) at Wayfair?
Got notified I advanced to final round with BCG but already accepted offer with a T2 firm (experienced hire, pre-MBA). Friends are telling me still interview given I have 1 month until start date. Gut says karma will haunt me if I reneged on current offer. Hiring Managers: is this treason / guaranteed to doom me to hell? Or would you rather have me leave now than in .5 years?
What’s general turnaround time from final candidate interview to decision / offer? Friend I referred for a SD role has gone through the process (2 Partner interviews, 1 SD interview) with the last interview occurring about two weeks ago. She hasn’t heard anything from HR and HR hasn’t responded to her emails asking on status. Not sure if that’s par for the course or an indication she got dinged.
We are looking to hire some great Sales experts on our team. Great WLB, remote and competitive pay. Please DM me if you are interested.
Are cover letters important if they don’t ask for one? There are so many job postings and applicants I can’t tell if they would be beneficial to show effort or just a waste of time to write with how little time I assume people are looking at applications with the mass hiring going on. If I should be writing one, any advice how to format?
I wanted to flag so others can know, I live in mcol and I just received an offer for 120k base and a 15k signing bonus. I have three years of experience. I asked for a signing bonus and a 110k salary. If you are a senior, you should definitely be applying and just see what comes up. Crazy the market for seniors right now
Does anyone have any tips to get back into a healthy lifestyle after giving yourself a break for a few days. I had been doing really well for the last 2-3 months, was feeling great and lost about 20lbs. I went away for the weekend and didn’t go crazy but let myself have cocktails and dessert and now I’m having a hard time getting back into the habits I had developed. I feel sick but I keep making bad choices
