I have been recruited by Amazon as Creative & Campaign Manager. I don’t know if I will pass all the interviews but I am wondering if this is a good time to jump in a Big Tech taking into consideration that I will probably be promoted to Senior Consultant in a few months Deloitte Deloitte Digital I don’t know if the game is worth the candle

Moved from Deloitte (consulting) to big tech, it’s worth it even if you discount TC. (Career opportunities, WLB, quality of work.

Amazon is highly team dependent for WLB. There are some groups like AMZL which are nightmare given fast growth and then others out there like probably the prime team or video which really aren’t all that bad

I just moved to a start up as an SC. Regret not doing it sooner. Yes, I work more but I also make more and am learning way more.

What start up?

How is this even a question?

Do it! If you have Amazon on your resume you are set for any job you might want in the future!

How would you describe the “it” factor when interviewing? Is it obvious when someone doesn’t have it, and is there anything I should avoid doing? I’m feeling pretty good about my PEI and casing skills, but want to avoid being that candidate that gets dinged for not having “it.” Thanks! 🙏🏼

How frequently is a PE investor realizing a full fund return? I get that it’s hard with timing. But let’s say it’s a $750m fund. Returns 3x MOIC. $2,250M. 20% is $450M. You’re an MD with 2% of the carry pool earning $9M. How often is that $9M paying out? Would depend on a typical rate of capital deployment and fundraising.. let’s say you raise a fund every other year. Average investment is 3-4 years. If you invested the whole fund in 1-2 years. And do this with over 10 years, that’s $45M?
