I have a friend that made the switch and they really didn't value that he was in consulting. If anything, it made it harder because you have to show how you're different from every other dime a dozen ex consultant.

Did you make products while a consultant? If no, not so great. I've made a few, had a phone screen, then they cancelled my interview. Said they did want to waste my time given # applicants with way more product experience. Very clear they valued strategy, client/business, and other experiences less.

I really want to know the answer to this

I just answered it. Did you read? Do you me spell it out for you?

1. Hard. 2. No. 3. Yes.

Is there such a thing as true 0% APR on car purchases? It looks like most “0%” offers I see have high fees associated with the amount borrowed. Is this always the case? I can buy with cash but would rather pay over time (obviously) if possible, thanks

My dad is thinking of buying a $3M house in the Bay Area to take advantage of the recent prop that’s passed that allows him to lower his property taxes. He has a NW of $10M and income of about 200K. He’s worried about the monthly payment being too high and wants to buy it outright with cash. Does this make sense or should he try to optimize the cap structure given the low interest rate environment?

Need a sanity check. I've got an offer at a mid sized biotech - SM level, $165k + 15% bonus + 15% RSU (annual award so won't come into the picture into year 2) and a $22k sign on bonus. From what I understand, that's good comp (MCOL area) for the title, but as an EM at a life sciences consulting firm (10 YOE), I feel like I should shoot more for AD or D level.

If I take the offer, is it realistic to look for a director offer in a couple years, or would most companies target AD after SM?
