Yes. That position will never materialize. Why not start in that position from the get go.

Yes; walk

Yes, this position will ultimately materialize to you doing month end close and reconciliations for 6 days and spending 24 organizing your Netflix ratings. Signed, a former believer of this lie.

I’m a first year analyst in RFA with deloitte and have really hated my experience so far. Both my projects have been a lot longer than they stated and I have learned 0 skills from either of them.

I have a couple interviews in an MBB role and a Tier 2 tech but I also want to keep applying to other companies just in case. Does anyone know companies that are in a hiring frenzy right now?

My younger sibling is about to make a dumb $ decision. I’m not saying anything because it’s not my money, it’s none of my business, and my sibling doesn’t want my advice, but watching from the sidelines as my family is hellbent on repeatedly making bad financial decisions, while calling me “moneybags” for earning and saving more because I do the exact opposite of what they do, is frustrating. Not looking for advice - just venting. The same upbringing doesn’t equate to the same outcomes.

I recently decided to close my startup & look for a job. But I cannot decide if I should go big tech or startups. I keep hearing bad stories about startup culture, compensation and workload. Although I myself had a startup but it was only me and 2 folks overseas so cannot say I experienced the startup world fully. On the other hand, I didn’t work in tech before lunching my business and I would like to enhance my technical capabilities so I’m not sure if you can do that in big tech. Any thoughts?
