Hey Fishes ,
I am a QA/SDET with 8 YOE , good in building framework for UI and API Testing , right now working on improving coding (DSA) and AWS (SAA certification). I am at 25 LPA now and my aim is to get in FAANG what all i need to get in my bucket to crack that (or atleast improve my chance of getting in ), please guide me .
What are the tech companies that are good for SWE. Still FAANG? Is Amazon good to work at?
Why is full scope poly so rough? Coming out of public trust to secret, and wondering how much dread their is with the current career trajectory I'm on
EY 1- talks a lot but nobody is listening.
DB 1 - Barclays 1’s little brother
JPM 1 - goldman 1 less attractive friend
Managing Director - is probably an associate at best
McKinsey 1 - wears tight colored maroon pants
Pwc 1 - made it to UBC video interview and got extremely nervous
I’d like to move to IB, currently working in Management consulting (Boutique firm in Europe / Porsche consulting). 1 YOE, Engineering background with a master in management and finance, does the profile match better with a boutique bank to later try to apply to a larger one or should aim at the largest banks first and keep boutique firms as back-up? Any advice on the career switching?
If you’re religious (e.g Christian) have you found it difficult to meet an equally religious person you would like to date in a regular social setting (i.e not through apps, church or family arrangements)? To me it seems very difficult…
Partners, how do you take the guess work out of YoY sales + revenue growth to the firm? How do you drive a book of business consistently? What keeps you sharp? How do you elevate yourself to C-Suite?
Any good resources for putting together itineraries? Go tos are T+L, conde nast, bon appetit, vogue,nytimes
It’s hard to keep working with all the horrible news going on. I find myself reliving trauma with this Supreme Court stuff, crying because of all the racism getting popularized. It’s affecting my work
What’s everyone drinking tonight? Hit a milestone at work today so poured some Old Fitz 16 year.
What’s the starting salary for an entry level general accountant in the Raleigh NC area with 1-2 years of experience? Any help would be appreciated! A general ballpark for private, in payroll or A/R. Have a friend considering moving back home.
I see everyone talking about raises , promotions and bonuses in July for BDO . Do we also have that for BDO Canada ? I did not receive a call from a partner yet.
Ladies, how old were you when you met your SO? I’m in my early thirties and feeling a little hopeless. Not to mention this job makes it hard to date.

Curious if anyone pre-ordered Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th anniversary. Tired to put deposit, but it sold out in 48 hours is. The Omega sales rep told me since there was only 1,000 for USA.
Saw a leak on the new Sub from a French newspaper that was inadvertently published. Looks like confirmed stainless steel models with black, blue, and green bezels (black dial), and 41mm diameter - which positions the core sports models as follows:
42: Exp II
Excited to try a micro brand!
I have a Rolex Sea Dweller 16660 I’m thinking of selling because
1. I’d like to ride the Rolex bubble while it lasts
2. I’m pursuing a Reverso
3. It is too much of a stereotypical Rolex image I’d like to avoid
Any tips on how to approach doing this in NYC? Ideas to valuation? I’m thinking of going to a Tourneau or similar to get it assessed
Grail piece *unlocked*.
This one is likely for life.
Morning commute made easy.
I see that the Zenith Chronomaster El Primero Open has been delisted from the Zenith website.. will they be re-listing at some point, or has its run ended? Clearly I've missed something lol
The watch I'm referring to:
In case anyone is wondering just how insanely polished the dial, hands, date window, and indices are on a Grand Seiko, I caught this refraction on the wall while working in sunlight...I've never seen detail like this bounce off a dial!
Thoughts on Cartier Santos? Was originally thinking about getting a Reverso bc of historical significance but it seems like the Santos has just as much history behind it
Thought's on Speedy FOIS?
Happy Saturday all!
Happy Monday! What’s on your wrist this week?
Given Omega Speedmaster Reduced is such an affordable option, why should one not go for it? Smaller wrists and not looking for anything bigger than 40mm
Dumb Q, but why are women’s watches so much less expensive than men’s? I know they’re typically smaller, but some are almost the same size. Rolex, Omega, Patek etc.
How often do you wear your nicer watches? I’ve been swapping days out with an Apple Watch
Any down side to putting my name on the list for a Daytona or Pepsi GMT Master II? Don’t have a buying history with an AD and likely can’t afford for a couple years anyway. Will I ever get called?
Looking at a mid 2012 no date sub that includes box and all papers. They’re asking $9600. Seems like a decent price, yeah?
