Security TPM on-site at big tech, how would you prepare/review? No coding. Expect high level q’s on vuln. Analysis& arch. design from security POV. I do NOT have an engr. Background. 1wk to prep
Rising 2L going through OCI process. Is it naive to think that any firms actually care about WLB? Which are known to be the least sweaty of the sweatshops? It’s hard to sort through the deception during these interviews… 🧐

Is anyone currently in FAAS Digital Analytics practice that can share some insights of what your work experience has been like? Really interested in learning more and potentially pursuing this. Thanks!
Etiquette question - my company is flying me out to England in October for a week ( the week of the 3rd) and paying for my flights. I’ll be training new teammates and be in day long meetings the whole time. Is it a faux pas for me to use PTO and extend that Europe stay for a few days to explore London on my own time? Or since they’re flying me out and I have to get home anyway, is it ok?
Can anyone please give details of what M&A consulting entails? I heard about it just recently and it sounds like something I wanna explore post-MBA. I would love to speak to someone that works in that field to get insight. Thank you
How is Mothersonsumi company for a sap consultant. Does it have good career growth and wlb? Is it worth joining? Any guidance would be helpful
Finally got the courage to check my email and saw there were 13 unread, can’t stop shaking. Nothing pressing but just hate that this industry doesn’t respect weekends
I once read a book called the Psychology of Everyday Things and fell in love with the concept of engineering design from a person-centered perspective.
Is this a part of what I/O psychologists do?
Any advice regarding leading a mid-level male team that simply will not accept feedback... or being lead for that matter. It’s constant teeth pulling to get simple, effective changes made to work and they act as though any constructive criticism, is a personal attack. There’s a lack of respect and a mightier than though attitude. I always try to be as kind as possible in reviews and over email, aware of how sensitive they are. Sometimes it feels like if I had a dick, there wouldn’t be an issue.
I uploaded documents after HR discussion last week but not yet received any update after follow ups with CGI.. Shall I ignore or consider them since my joining in a week. CGI .
