I am torn between 2 “offers” - first is MBA (insead - no option to defer unfortunately) vs Amazon - Minimum TC 200k (SGD, incl, RSU) - non tech strategy role, first hire for my team in the region. I have 5.5 yrs exp. I see the later as more practical given I was aiming for FAANG post mba but also fear losing the network of the former.... Grateful for any views ☺️

Yeah people use INSEAD or whatever top MBA to get into Amazon, so why not just skip the debt?

This- unless you ultimately wanted to pivot to finance, just go straight to Amazon.

What good is the network if you don’t use it?

Amazon unless you think it’s the 80s and want to be an investment banker at Goldman and make less.

Taking the MBA would be fun but dumb af career-wise

Unless you don’t want to go into Tech at any point of career… take the Amazon offer and run

The smart cube
Hi,

I have a interview scheduled with The Smart Cube for Senior Digital Analyst.

I have 1.7 YOE.

What kind of interview questions could be asked?

Ive accepted an offer going from a SM role to M role at EY in the CCas team , London office. Can anyone confirm how often one needs to come into the office, as my commute is from Hampshire . In my current role I rarely go to the office, i.e once every few months (also in London) and am considering backing out due to the additional commuting cost and less flexible work life balance.

I was told it’s because it’s based on cost of living where I am residing (not sure if that was legit or just an excuse).

One of the main questions a recruiter asks is your salary expectations.

Since recruiters are taking a percentage of what’s on the table - shouldn’t we be asking what their take home/cut is?

Hi! This is not 100% salary-related, but your feedback would be helpful.

A few hours after they contacted me, I received a communication from a very similar company, Akraya, Inc., for the same exact position. I just want to make sure Pyramid is a reputable company.
