I had a headhunter reach out to me regarding a few open positions at Altman Solon, but before I go through the interview process, I’d like to know more about the company. Obviously they focus on the TMT industry, but what about culture, prominent service offerings, WLB, compensation, interviews process, etc.? TIA!

Culture/WLB seems okay, not toxic but way more than 40h weeks, compensation seems strong, and as far as I know they only do 50/50 CDDs and growth strategy... which is probably why WLB isn't great

All, this is my first post and I just want to share that I passed the first Amazon interview for Technical Program Manager and am heading to on-site virtual interviews! I have 20 years of corporate tech in a traditional F500 company (top 50). The only thing I can say that I like about my current job is the work-life balance and some of the people. But the work itself is soul crushing and the industry is stagnant. To those who are 40+ years old, is it crazy to change now?
