I might have an offer coming for a job that seems great, and with good WLB. the people were very nice and informative and transparent during interviews. They were up front in telling me that the office environment is not very social though like it is in public accounting where im coming from but that everyone is friendly. Would this be an issue?

How do you value the social aspect of your team? For instance, during Covid a lot of teams weren’t social at all. How did you like it? Generally, most industry positions don’t have the “social” aspect like happy hours, etc. You’ll probably still have lunches but more informally. Most in industry have families and would rather spend time with family than go to happy hours.

Last step of an interview process, I’ve received a case study where a new player enters the market with a cheaper and better proposition. Not dramatic movement of the market has been detected, but customers are asking for similar offers and the market seems to loose its “dynamics”. The client is asking my firm to develop a strategy to fend its clients data base and revenue stream from the new player. - 1h presentation, any suggestions on how to structure the problem?
