I'm looking to pivot from consulting into tech. I've gotten lots of interesting from tech companies on the ops side but am much more interested in product management. Any advice on books or courses to help make the transition? I'm struggling to land PM interviews at companies that aren't tiny startups :(
Interviewing for a role at BP, what are they like as a firm to work at? It’d be the commercial/strategy side of the business rather than production. I understand they went thru a major re-org to be relevant for the future energy industry. How’s that going?
Have a FAANG interview in 1 hour, not nervous at all ... Already have one offer in hand. Is it normal? I wanted to go to FAANG so badly until recently I got rejected by Google, cleared my head and now I don't even care anymore.

I-140 and I-485 were both filed today, the former with premium processing. Lawyers said there’s 12-18 months wait still. How is this possible? Why does this process suck so much?
Can anyone share their interview exp and type of questions asked for qa post at Salesforce company??
Just got an interview for an in-house job at FAANG, but I recently accepted another job offer already. If I turn down this interview, will I ruin my chances later?
Finally got an in-house counsel interview! In Biglaw now. Any interviewing tips that differ from law firm interview tips?
What's the best way to prepare a business case presentation? I've been invited to a final round interview for a medical device company as a process optimization consultant. They sent me a client case study. In the case there are pain points of the client, and some numbers to analyze their workflow and recommend them to use their medical devices for process improvement. I'm not sure how to stucture it. how would you approach it?
Do any of you struggle with the "tell me about the most stressful situation" interview questions? It feels inappropriate to talk about my non-business experience here, but the interviewers have my CV and know that I was in military. And it was way more stressful than consulting. How do you all handle this?
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
I'm thinking about getting braids. What are your thoughts on interviewing while wearing braids pulled back in a bun? Yes/No, until you get the job?
Heartwarming diversity on display at the DNC! From Republicans to Democrats, representation from all races - even Northern Marinara Islands got a shout out. Go Joe & Kamala!
How do you all handle stress at work? I’m on a though project and feeling sort of hung out to figure it all myself. My stomach is in knots and I’m waking up in the middle of the night thinking about the case.
I have an interview with Deloitte Strategy & Analytics for a Senior Consultant role. What can I expect in the case? Is it a regular case? Or something new? The email I got is throwing me off. Help, thanks :)
Wild that conservatives think they're on the right side of history after supporting officials who let tens of thousands die needlessly and will now try to take away people's healthcare.

Are there any married couples working at two different big 4 firms? How did you make sure your finances were compliant with both?
I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner. It ran smoothly, I got praise from the partner, and the partner said that they trust me to do most stuff without their sign off (so no need to check with them in future unless I’m really unsure). Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
Potentially have an offer from a local tech startup. I’m 24, currently make ~$95K base and ~$50K, with an additional ~$20K in profit sharing (so total comp around $160-170K). Offer would likely (cont)
Had a final round interview with B4 consulting on Monday and spoke with a partner for 10 min. When is it okay to follow up with them about a final decision? Currently staffed and they wanted me to start in March. So wanted to give my team maximum time to backfill my position.
I made limited EQ partner in 2019 . This week I was told I’m getting moved to counsel effective Jan 1. My hours were negatively impacted in 2019 by an ill parent (only child) and in 2020 multiple clients said pencils down for half the year (& additional family illness & a death), + kids. I know nothing about the counsel role. What terms/arrangements have people negotiated? I don’t know what negotiation ability I’ll have, but wanted to be better informed.
Sick of paying for cable I don’t really use, minus live sports on the weekends, anyone have good experience with YouTube tv or PlayStation vue ?
Is wanting to receive my year end bonus from Deloitte a valid reason for pushing back start date for another job?

Any good book recommendations on psychology?
Best Amex redemption value?
Hi all, would love to get your opinion on an estimated market rate for a employee like me, as I’m thinking about asking for a raise in January but haven’t done this before. 1 YOE TS/SCI Full-Scope Clearance 1/2 thru Masters program (Analytics Georgia Tech) Been lead data scientist on team for 5+ months 2 AWS and Tableau cert (sorry had to throw that in there lol) I know this is a tough task without all the context but I’m currently making $95k and that seems to be the lowest on my team.
