I didn't think I did a great job answering my questions with Amazon. But I ended up getting the job. So you never know. At the minimum use it as a learning op.

Assuming positive intents, Saas 1 is probably trying to point out that at amazon there’s a “bar raiser” component to the interview where the goal is to purposefully try to see how tough you can go with the interviews before the interviewee messes up/doesn’t know. Not every tech company has this

Need some advice on being managed out. My manager is not happy about my work this year, which I will take my share of accountability. He is constantly gaslighting me in meetings, give specific instruction to de prioritize certain tasks and yet pull me in to a call to pick a very small detail to ask me to explain said task, or spend our 1on1 to lash out over Mis-interpretation of my choice of words. How do I manage this situation while actively interviewing, which may take 1-2 month at least.

Any signs of MBB travel hours/week changing significantly post-pandemic? Alternatively, are there any particular projects at MBB with less work hours/week, say like a defense gig?

Currently at Big4 with a fairly nice WLB and I’d love to pursue a MBB opportunity post-MBA for potentially better business experience/exit ops (more Advise work vs implement/operate done at Big4)

My firm was one of the firms that gave covid bonuses but did not specify whether everyone was getting it. I didn’t make my hours this year because I was on maternity leave and a bunch of my cases ended 1-2 months before I went out so I had lower hours before I started my leave. I couldn’t make up for those lost hours when I was back since I was working from home with an infant because of covid. I didn’t get the covid bonus, which in my mind is ironic considering the circumstances. (Cont.)
