A little more abstract, I’ve made it a goal to read a biography of each US president. The political acumen needed during the founding of the country is a fascinating takeaway for the politics of corporate life. Another great one I love is “the 48 laws of power” by Robert Greene. Chalk full of historical anecdotes about interesting lessons to be learned throughout history.

Hi,

Evaluating an exit into Amazon as L6 product manager (TC: $225K) after 1 year at BCG. I want to work in tech/fintech long term. Questions:
1) Is the work life balance better at Amazon, than BCG? Currently I'm averaging 70 hours a week. More than that, the pace is quite insane. Deliverables every couple of hours.
2) Is the level of mentorship/coaching better at Amazon?
3) Is the offer reasonable? Their upper max is 250k and I'm currently at 240, should I try to atleast get my current TC?

You ever reply with a confirmation question, but then realize that confirmation probably wasn’t needed at all.

Just me? Cool 😑
