First off, congrats - not many people get the sort of opportunities you have been given. You decision will depend on your long term goals. If what you want to do is make things, FB is what you need. The only issue is whether you want to be at a company that is as vilified. If you want to get the business stuff first, McKinsey is one of the best places you could go. However, it's consulting and you'll be on the low end so you are more likely to be sent to a project in Poughkeepsie than Manhattan. as for money, you should squeeze McKinsey in a competitive situation - tell them you have an offer from fb. So both have ups and downs.

Unwise to offer no appraisal contingency? Going to offer above asking price on a house with multiple bids. Realtor suggested potentially foregoing appraisal contingency to show we’re committed to closing. We have a lot of cash but wouldn’t it be a red flag if the house doesn’t appraise for the full value? How risky is it if we’re only paying 10-15k above asking? Any other considerations? Thanks!

What is the best way to respond? I was thinking about calling to leave a follow up message. Is this too much?

Hi Fishes, I recently got shortlisted for a Product Manager position at Tracxn. There’s also an IPO coming up which is the reason I had applied. But I have read some horrifying reviews about the company on Glassdoor, indeed and other forums. I’m wondering whether it’s worth going through the interview process and I’d also like to hear opinions from anyone who has worked with the company or is aware of the company culture. Thanks.
