@assistant manager, thank you, perfectly aware. Considering that still WLB is better compared to consulting. You are Welcome to do your own research by talking to people but 12 -13 hours of work is norm which is worse that product based.

Agree

Fellow fish, life is much better in product based companies. In service based 13 -14 hours is the norm. Wouldn't recommend to shift

Consulting and WLB don't go together 😆

In product management also there no work life balance... You have to achieve targets of your portfolio and do field work every month for 5-6 days..

Hmm in that case i would prefer consulting wherein my strengths are in communication and strategic orientation rather than just making inputs and achieving targets which doesn't add any value to my experience any more

Referrals for firms with remote locations for work, locations like Mumbai, Bangalore , Delhi, Hyderabad, Pune would work..


Looking for support Fishes.. on the verge of leaving my job without another one and taking a break due to toxic culture and boss and just being an input manager

Looking to move to product base company after working in EY for 9 months. Wlb is a taking troll on my physical and mental health.

Interested at ZS? Based on your exp you can land up at C or M position.

Good growth, not so good WLB.

LMK!

What's average salary bracket for this C and M band ?

I am graduating with a CS degree and my job isn’t very coding heavy. It’s a lot of using tools like snowflake, powerBI, etc. I am worried this could make me less valuable down the road if I don’t continue to code professionally. To be fair though, I don’t see myself coding heavily 5 years from now, I think a role like product manager or solutions architect would better fit my skill set. Do any professionals in the tech field have any thoughts?
