How hard is it to get into a MAANG firm? I keep applying I keep getting no replies or a rejection email months later almost feeling dejected at this point. Is it that tech firms don’t value tech expertise from consulting firms like the BIG4 or should I be applying to a different role type (I’ve been down that route before too with no luck)

What type of role are you applying to? I know it’s not MAANG but we hire a lot of ex consultants into Strategy & ops roles here

I’ve come to the understanding that a software engineering manager/senior manager is where I fit best in MAANG firms. care to share more ?

What on earth do agile coaches do with the other 95% of their time?

I just listened to an interview of a creative director recount their path towards copywriting at a famous ad agency. It could not have been a more textbook case of failing upwards as a white man.

It would seem the only thing you need to make it as an advertising creative is to have lots of not particularly original ideas. Practically every other skill is unnecessary. If you’re a white man.

That this level of mediocrity passes for talent explains why so many agency briefs are so lame.
