Interview feedback: my answers weren’t concrete enough. I answered questions by sharing my work process, then sharing an example from prior projects and in the example I included how I prepare, who I involve, what that looks like day to day, types of required meetings and what is discussed, how I make decisions, etc. I’m looking for tips on how I can address this feedback? I have fulfilled the responsibilities of the role I applied for so I have the experience. Just need to frame it right.

Hard to know what to say without more context. But everything you’ve described above is process, not output or answers. Maybe you need to show more detail on results and output?

Here is additional context: Ex. Q: How do you set product vision? Give an example. A: In my view, there are 3 components of a product vision, A, B, C. In one of me previous products, during the Discovery phase, we identified problems DE. Product vision is focused on longer term direction of product but should also address these problems. I learned about DE by interviewing these ppl, created process maps/workflows, met with FGH teams to understand priorities & set goals etc, then state product vision from past project, and how in hindsight after go live problems DE were minimized. Hope this helps in critiquing my answer. I’m not sure what more results I can provide.

Just got a lateral hire offer for a Sr Associate role with BCG. Contract states that I can go for Consultant promo in 12 months.

I'm nervous - should I be? :(

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
