Not sure if I'm making the right decision. Looking into leaving my SC level role at Deloitte (working in ERP area) to pursue a masters of science in Bus Analytics. Currently making around 135k/year, and honestly doubt I'll get the same after my masters. But just need a break from corporate life, to learn new things, and to get the hell away from SAP and build some hard skills in what seems like a more interesting area. Looking for a pulse check in if I'm being crazy here...
If I submit my application for a position through a firm's website and get rejected, is it worth trying to go through a friend who works at the firm anyways? Or will my application still get tossed?

How do I get out of insurance defense? I’m starting to feel like I’m set up for failure in this role — high volume case load, very little oversight until the deadline, feedback doesn’t come until right before something is due to the court or right after I filed something. Is this typical for training associates or do my supervising partners just suck?

I’m interviewing for an associate position at my firm’s competitor. My main reason for doing this is because I don’t feel valued at my current firm and the pay at the competitor is substantially more. This obviously is not something I can say at my interview. But i need to be able say why I’m looking to move firms when it’s the same work in the same geographical area. Any thoughts?

I just wrapped up final rounds at Amazon for a marketing position at Prime Video. Curious if anyone here can speak to the marketing team culture in general at Amazon and what it’s like at Prime Video? I know Amazon has a reputation for being tough relative to other big tech but also know it can vary depending on the team so don’t want to be scared away without doing due diligence. It sounds like some of the intense PIP stuff is more for engineers?

I need some advice. My manager (CPO) wants to restructure his team and make everyone the level below him a ‘head of’. When he suggested it to me I immediately pushed back as I don’t feel experienced enough to take that role (I have 3 YOE doing product work within consulting and 1 YOE at the startup I’m working at now). His counter was that I wouldn’t immediately see a change in responsibilities or pay until we secure our series B which is months away….

Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?
