was this a public company? also was this a senior role

Yes, a public company. And it’s not a senior role, just a financial analyst position. But the requirements state 2-5 years

Anyone who renege and get any backlash? I signed an offer with a big 4 for full time and am still interviewing with other companies. ( Was an intern last summer and my offer got pushed out to summer cause my masters is 1.5 years and I graduate in December (In my defense the big 4 refused to let me go to another practice.) Plus pressured by parents to accept something before I graduate.

For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

Hey Fishes! Looking at two very different potential exits into industry. The roles are Pricing/Market Access Manager vs Procurement/Sourcing Director. Both in Pharma. The pay is less important (if that were the only criterion, Director role would be the easy short term answer for me). I’m also interested in hearing your thoughts on which role in Pharma you fishes believe has the better long term growth potential. Thinking long term. Thanks fishes!

In the past two weeks my work has picked up 10x what it was previously. Now I’m working 70+ hr weeks and often my projects are submitted nearly before deadline since I’m shuffling multiple at once.
