Know the 14 principles? I think it’s really sweet you are watching out for him 🙂

Please check Glassdoor. I’ve interviewed for a non-tech role and everything was about 14 principles.

Create 2-3 stories (write them down) around all the relevant principles for the job. Recruiter should tell you the principles that applies. Practice the stories and presentation (if applicable) multiple times. Brush up on technical topics and have a few designs in mind covering common use cases. I also did a mock interview on behavioral that really helped me. I would suggest applying to azure and Google as well. The prep for amazon should help him there. Good luck!

Evaluating an exit into Amazon as L6 product manager (TC: $225K) after 1 year at BCG. I want to work in tech/fintech long term. Questions: 1) Is the work life balance better at Amazon, than BCG? Currently I'm averaging 70 hours a week. More than that, the pace is quite insane. Deliverables every couple of hours. 2) Is the level of mentorship/coaching better at Amazon? 3) Is the offer reasonable? Their upper max is 250k and I'm currently at 240, should I try to atleast get my current TC?

Salary in interview. I was asked about my salary in an interview at MBB. Say I was currently receiving 70k fixed + 22k bonus. I told them "my salary is 100K including bonus". Can this little round off hurt later? The interviewer was basically asking me how much I am expecting and I told him industry standards. Kept pursuing it. In end he said just give me sense of your current salary and so I rounded off.

How interesting it is that the language ‘English’ restricted us to think what we can possibly think/experience/learn.

I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?

Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
