Next week FAANG earnings begin with NFLX and following 2 weeks all the big boys go. Are earnings going to be catalyst for next leg up or next leg down? I don’t think better than expected works anymore like it did in the summer. ￼ One thing to note though all the major tech companies but Apple are trading below where they did at Q3 earnings.
What’s generally standard among FAANG companies for offer acceptance once one is extended? If anyone has experience with this, is it one week or is it more flexible? I am trying to schedule final onsite with two companies and hoping I can get timing to line up (in the event I am fortunate enough to have offers).
Which job would you take? 200k TC with 40 hours a week VS. 240k TC with 60 hours a week (FAANG-Amazon)?
Is it too late to buy the FAANG stocks? Still feel that Amazon and Google are undervalued.
FAANG or PE Ops. I currently am in PE Ops consulting but have an offer from Amazon. Any ideas on what would provide more job security? Trying to decide if I should make a jump to FAANG
Does having gaps on your resume automatically take you out the running for FAANG companies..
Is there a hierarchy within FAANG of which companies pay more/less? Why isn’t Microsoft part of FAANG instead of Netflix?
“The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads” ~ Facebook data founder. Is it wrong that we idolize FAANG? Should the govt intervene in business and privacy?
Starting application process to FAANG and other tech firms. For those who have recruited, what’s the end-to-end timeframe? Trying to see when to start the process if my goal is to leave by end of October. I also will be able to get referrals from google, fb, and amazon, not sure if that speeds up the process . Thank you
Will FAANG companies wait for you to finish recruiting at competitor or revoke your offer if you need more time?
I feel like Facebook needs to be removed from “FAANG” status and replaced with Salesforce, SAANG, or some other arrangement of the letters. Does anyone else feel this way?

What are some of the best non FAANG companies that we can target for program management or biz ops roles?
Why is it FAANG and not FAAMG? M for Microsoft? Is Netflix really move powerful/clout than Microsoft
2yrs of post-undergrad experience at D and have offers from two FAANG companies. Worth it to stick it out for a couple more years to open up more offers down the road, or should I get out while I can?
How do you signal to FAANG companies to look at your LinkedIn profile? Only get other consulting firms viewing it/ reaching out for ops.
MBBers, how did y’all prepare for case studies / interview process? Any discerning difference between how Big4 interviews are conducted?
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
I have an outlook folder named 'crap’ to auto route useless communications from certain people/ groups. That list is now 20+. I guess it’s time to create ‘crap 2’ for diversity
Looking to exit to a tech company - has anyone ever approached a DEI person at the company you are applying to on LinkedIn? Is this something worth pursuing or should I just apply directly?
This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
When you explain to your non-accounting friends what the Big 4 is and they say, "oh sounds like the Ivy League for accounting firms" >>>>
What do you guys do when you have nothing to work on? I’m an A1, and sometimes due to client delays, work gets extremely slow. I’m just curious about what’s the common thing other staff do in this type of situation so I don’t feel guilty when I end up having free time
Anyone receive an offer for Senior Manager, Strat and Ops role at DoorDash recently? Do you mind sharing what was your total comp? Have an exploding offer and might not be able to finish the DD process. Did a search but couldn’t find the range.
Planning to open another bank account. Currently have Wells Fargo and chase. Any suggestions? Also, how many bank accounts on avg does one have?
Any ballpark on Canadian product manager compensation and options? - Series A FinTech - from 2yoe consulting/industry
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Had another AD help my CW on a brief while I was on PTO for a couple of days, and is now refusing to get off the project and letting me do my job. I'm all for collaboration and appreciate the three hours he worked on it, but it's getting to the point that he's trying to steamroll me out of my own team and project by not letting me have any input on my own work. It's starting to really impact the output and dynamics. What do I do?
Is there any protocol if your client on an active matter (and you feel like you've done good work) posted an open in house position you're qualified for? Interested but I don't want to burn the bridge on either side if counsel's feelings aren't reciprocated.
Hilton wouldn't let me in to the executive lounge even tho I have status and front desk verified at check in and check out I had access. How many points can I ask for?
How do you get past imposter syndrome? Someone more senior than me is encouraging me to apply to a role that I feel totally unqualified for. I hate my current job, but I’m good at it and am scared to fail the interview for this new position. I feel like if it doesn’t work out I’m letting the people who support me down :(
Is it realistic to aim for a move to MBB after 1-2 years of experience at a Tier 2 firm (OW/ATK/RB/S&) in the region? How difficult is it to move from Tier 2 to MBB?
