Doesn’t AWS pay more than consulting for less hours? If not I need to rethink my plans

Aws hours are huge. Multiple friend work there and they all appear exhausted all the time If you can switch to Google...try that. Our hours are normal (35-45)

Which group at AWS are you in? Some recruiter talked to me about their Strategic Costumer Engagement team given my M&A experience but it was hard to understand what they actually do…

Helpful - thanks! Let me know if doing DD is of interest to you. Market is hot. I do pre and post sign M&A. Good luck!

Commercial DD TMT focused shop here, never been busier.

Why do I keep hearing from everyone and their mother that the COVID vaccine doesn’t hurt and it just feels like a little pinch and may feel sore a day or two after at the sight of injection. I mean, is this really a novel experience? We’ve been getting vaccines for years now, why do people talk about it like it’s some new invention that no one has heard of before?????

here's my prediction. If Biden wins, the media will begin to message the following; -The worst COVID risks and outcomes are to people with identifiable risk factors such as obesity and diabetes. -Most other people who catch it will experience a bad flu. -Many other people who catch it won't even know they have it. -It's not commonly transmitted by touching objects and person to person transmittal is low risk except in close contact. The media will then message that we should; (cont'd)

Hey everyone, so my sister and her boyfriend have both gained about 60-70 pounds since COVID started.

I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
