After years on the agency side, I’ve realized that I no longer am prioritizing my portfolio anymore. The blockbuster productions are too just stressful, and they simply aren’t worth it. Excited to go client side/in house and regain a work/life balance. Would love any tips/pointers from agency producers who made the switch.
I have an upcoming PM interview with an engineering manager. What types of questions should I expect? For some context, the interview is for a generalist PM role (not too technical) for a company that develops APIs.

For those with kids, how would you feel if someone without kids told you “I chose not to have kids, because of where I want to spend my time. And, my priorities outside of work should carry as much weight as yours (meaning kids)”?

Potentially a dumb question, but for the employment history part of the application, should you include internships? If so, do you annualize the amount of your internship pay? I’ve included them in my resume but feels a little weird to put them at the same level as my first full time job.

FAANG folks - what are Facebook/Google roles like Country Lead/Industry Lead equivalent to? Are these Director level roles? What sort of compensation can you expect in something like that role?
How many people have had success leaving “big” consulting to start doing freelance work? The freedom and money sound very appealing, especially since I’m getting pretty sick of the corporate rat race. Luckily I’m in a niche area and get hit up on LinkedIn a lot about independent contracts. What kinds of things should I be considering as I contemplate this potential career change? Any advice from someone who has made the jump is appreciated.

A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
What’s the EY Marriott code?

Had a baby recently and, for the life of me, can't imagine going back to work. My husband also works extreme hours. How do you parents with demanding careers do it? I'm thinking of moving to industry.
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
Looking at the way people are laid off, utilization is just one part of it. It's so hard to pin point what is (proper consultants let go from projects, etc..)
Had a dream last night that every partner at the Big 4 had their name added to their firm’s name. It was miserable providing a list of hundreds of names every time someone asked where I worked...
