The responses on this thread thus far are why I love FB

Would be good for you to have a perspective on how you develop strategy (i.e. how do you develop industry perspectives and turn that into strategic insight). Basically just regurgitate how BCG thinks about developing strategy.

Ask questions, frame problems, assess materiality, come up with a hypothesis for a solution framework, test, review, repeat

Asking for my spouse. She is five months pregnant and has a amazon offer. She works for Deloitte too. Deloitte definitely has a better maternity leave but amazon is doubling her take home salary. Also agreed to work from home for two years. Thoughts? Stress wise her Deloitte practice ( strategy) is probably as stressful or more as compared to amazon role so it literally boils down to maternity benefits for us.

I just started my job a month ago. It was my 2nd choice role at this company. I didn't realize the chaos I was walking into, and while it's not toxic (yet), I had hopes of more work life balance and an actual "belonging to a team" feel. I basically skipped onboarding and jumped right into working, boss skipped a huge working session I "led" but had no clue how to lead and I was put on the spot. Applying to a dream job but if I don't get it might keep browsing. Is leaving worth the consequences?
