Moving from consulting to engineering? Started out in CS and had internships and a short job as an engineer before I moved into consulting. I have been enjoying in a lot but am scared that I won’t be able to move back into engineering if I stay too long. Anyone have similar experience or advice? Have I already made myself a worse candidate by taking a non-engineering role or can I say that it allowed me to bolster my soft skills?

Consulting at Facebook? How?

Maybe inhouse?

Nah, you’ll be fine. Just spend a month or two ramping up on whatever programming languages / concepts you’re trying to get into. A lot of the technical jobs are screened. Pass those and you’ll be fine. You may have to take a pay cut or a lower role, but i’m sure you can make that up in a year or two.

Weighing two offers (one Big 4, one Industry). Wondering what others would do in the same position. Role 1: SC at Deloitte: $150 base, 17% annual bonus, $20k signing bonus Role 2: Manager at Large Tech Firm that went public last year. $130k base + 60k equity that vests after Y1 + refreshes additional 60k (+annual merit increase) starting Y2. Total Comp is much better at Role 2 starting Y2, but the internal team in Role 2 seems very stressed. Anyone been in a similar position?

I’m currently recruiting for a high level leadership role (FL) and initially doing phone screens before sending candidates to interview with a chief officer. I am trying to gauge EQ and communication styles and asking candidates to “tell me about a time when” or “can you give me an example of” things they should have done by this point in their career. A lot of times candidates don’t provide examples but instead speak in hypotheticals or tell me their philosophy about the item in question. I have been noting that they failed to provide an example or that they provide a generic response but would love to know how others handle this? Do you pushback and ask again for a specific example? Or let it go and note it?

This is in regards to salary bump. I have been in my job and role for a year now. Met with my boss about title change, which he agreed is necessary since I’ve taken on much more in my time at this job. I had a solid review & also inquired about a salary bump since my duties are reflective of a higher salary and with a higher title it should go hand in hand I believe. They told me that they are not bumping salaries right now but they want to give me a higher title.
