I know Im late in the game, im 38f and already have 17 yoe. Im not originally from the US so I want to make it right for my career. I migrated here just 5 yrs ago and to get my foot in the door I accepted entry level job. Now Im thinking of becoming registered associate. Is it too late for me? My experience is mostly in Operations. I have been to Mortgage Default, CIB Commercial loans, UAT, ATM Operations.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Not too late. You can start with company offering licensing and then see how you feel about it.

An MBA recent grad. I signed with MBB last year. However, I have always wanted to do tech PM. I couldn’t find PM job in Fall and just signed MBB offer I have. I recently got an FAANG offer. It’s PM function, hard to break in with consulting experience. I declined the new offer during interview stage and again after they gave me initial offer, but it is coming back with 80k more in annual compensation. It made me so torn!! Should I renege MBB offer?

It's now been 3 weeks since the interview and I still haven't heard back from the team other than the odd HR email saying they are following up with them. Is there something going on internally, I.e hiring freeze in the London office atm?
