From a purely careeer perspective- I think it'll boil down to how strong your network is at accenture and whether you like the folks @spacex. If you have a strong network, you can get on interesting projects, otherwise I'd leave for the best in an industry Im interested in with ppl I mesh with.

A1, yes, it's an industry that I want to get back into. Not sure if it's worth giving up all the things that I have now though. I don't care about doing more ERP work. I'm also thinking of going back to school in the next 2-3 years for an MBA or a masters in analytics.

I've heard awful things about Tesla and not sure SpaceX would be much different. Musk is a visionary and his companies are awesome, but he's an incredible work addict and runs his employees into the ground

like

Point of me saying that is unless your vision and passion is deep rooted and motivated by Musks direction, may find yourself swimming in really deep water. If you're looking to work there JUST to say you worked there, don't do it. It's an incredibly rigorous culture. You need to be 100% bought in and fueled by the vision

like

Former engineer here... I would love to work at SpaceX (or Tesla for the matter) as an engineer because you truly are working to build something that's never been done before... as a biz analyst though doing ERP, the fact that it's a spaceship is almost irrelevant to your day to day. I agree with others here, unless you believe in this mission, find something that's the right fit or stick it out till bschool

like

A3, yeah that's the one. Did you turn them down?

To clarify, I was applying for product manager not BA. Didn't get an offer. From what I understand BAs should aim to get promoted to PM with 3-4 years

Hi everyone,

Need a bit of advice from this bowl, for a peculiar situation.

After around 1.5YOE in consultancy, I'm on a 9-month FTC for an asset manager (Governance team), £60k.

There has been no talk of a bonus, and it's usually done in January (by then my contract will have ended).

So, 1) should I ask for a discretionary bonus? If so, how much? 2) I'd like to stay at the company and get a higher salary. Am I in a good spot to negotiate if they extend an offer? How much can I push it?

I've seen people say that if you're underpaid, you can't just outline your contributions because your manager needs a compelling reason for finance to bump your salary and they need to prove you're underpaid. So how do I present my case that I'm being underpaid other than "my friends make this amount in their role" or "Glassdoor says this" when finance can find rebuttals for these arguments?
