Do you stay at a good firm with a good reputation where you are siloed in a back office role with no growth or go to a lesser known firm with less track record and opportunity to learn and grow? I’m in an extremely operational role and want to leave but the benefits down the line could be grand. How do you evaluate a decision like this?
I have experience in Java Support for 5 YOE. I am not having expertise in Java development but understand the language. Recently i was able to clear an interview at CGI for the role of Java Developer. I am feeling less confidence if I will be able to survive. Should i take this chance or will I get fired if am not so expert? Please advise.
Got recruited for a Technical Account Manager (TAM) at Google - anyone have any insights on the role/salary/ interview questions?
3.00 UG gpa (death of a parent, caretaker of the other), 3.95 master GPA both in engineering, 730 GMAT. Have killer ECs, decent WE but not gold. I'm applying to 10 of the T15 in R1, with Cornell as my safety. Should I add more schools that are lower ranked in or just see where I land after R1? Really want to have at least 1 acceptance after R1.
Hello... what are your thoughts about hiring candidates to work remotely? Positives and negatives
Genuine question as I wanted to know is it strange for someone to want to switch to advisory from tax. Would it be difficult for someone to transition from that position? I understand that they are too completely different work but similar fields. Also wanted to know what’s the day to day basis like for advisory during covid and in general
Looking at exits and know big tech is not the play anymore. What are the FAANG companies of 2030? What companies should people be exiting to now? Med device? AI? Cyber?
I lead 20 to 30 projects concurrently, a team of 10 to 15 resources and 10 YOE. I would think I have the skill set for getting a program manager job in industry but can’t get interview. What’s wrong?
Do top 10 schools generally fly you out for interviews? Or are they mostly Skype? Or do you have to pay your way to interview in person? Does it depend on the school?
Will FAANG companies wait for you to finish recruiting at competitor or revoke your offer if you need more time?
Recruiter asking for compensation expectations on email; how do you respond. It is a niche industry role and I have freakin no idea what they pay for the role and level
We have Netflix in FAANG, yet don’t see much discussion about the company. What’s up with it?
In the interview process for a FAANG. It’s been almost 2 months, and I’ve been through four interviews. Still waiting on final decision. Does that seem like a long time frame?
Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career. I’m currently reading sales books, watching Keenan’s YouTube channel, and learning all I can. I’m relentlessly applying for SDR positions but I’m having trouble landing interviews (been applying through LinkedIn). I would appreciate advice from anyone who transitioned from another industry into sales. How did you break the barrier?
If I take a job at Amazon in India, is it considered as prestigious to FAANG companies as Amazon in Silicon Valley?
Is it nonsensical for me to dream about joining FAANG only because I want aunties back home gossiping that Sharma ji’s daughter works for Facebook (or AANG)
My three year old now doesn’t go to bed until around 9 pm (and gets up around 7/730 am which we prefer… don’t want to move that schedule). I used to squeeze in extra work from 8-930/10 but it’s no longer feasible. How do you manage? I see my options as… 1) find a job that is more 9-5 2) start waking up early to work in the morning (not a fan as I think sleep is very important) 3) trade nights with husband where every other night I work vs him while the other hangs with the kid after 8
What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?
Anyone familiar with American Cybersystems Inc. (ACS)? Acsicorp.com is the site. Interested to hear any Data points....They reached out to me but I've never heard of them.

A lot of companies put out ads or talked about policy or internal changes in response to the BLM movement. I’m wondering if, beyond the immediate ads and statements that were released this actually continued. What are some things your agency has done… or could do to make a real impact in the realm of Diversity, equity and inclusions (DEI).
I got a partner referral to MBB and am expecting to get a first round interview invite in several weeks. Unfortunately I've never done a real case in my life. How should I prepare?
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
Somehow managed to get an interview at Netflix after a number of follow ups and referrals. Please wish me luck. 😓
Got offered my dream job - but want the comp to be higher. How do I go about negotiating without being too aggressive? They offered 100k and the initial range they gave was 95-110
At your firm, are there any internal no/limited travel roles "worth" having? I know the perception that internal is 2nd tier or "back" office, but 80% travel makes me feel 10 years older. 👦🏻🔜👴🏻
Are there any females here working at all male private equity or growth equity firms? I've been interviewing at a number of these shops and get so discouraged when I see no females or WOC (doesn't help that I come from a small boutique shop)
Does anyone in this bowl struggle w/ mental illness? If so, how do you manage your day to day w/ work and family life? Was diagnosed w/ ADHD + clinical depression a year or so ago, and have been looking for a bit of guidance...
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
has anyone stayed at the JW marriott or the AC hotel in miami? both got mixed reviews... trying to figure out which one to pick.
Any idea on the salaries on visa for sr testers?
Im about 2.5 years in and I’m starting to really dislike tech implementation work. Maybe remote work is just killing me now. What are some common exit opportunities you’ve seen or taken? Excluding MBA
For those of you not renewing your leases/ moving out of cities, what are you doing with your furniture, etc. for the time being? How are you facilitating your move? Lease is up at the end of the month and not sure if I should renew. Would hate to spend that much $$ if I’m not living there (I’m currently WFH with my parents in a different state)
Is a remote ACD even a thing? I want to explore opportunities to advance but there’s not much available right now in my city and I’m not able to relocate.
