This bowl seems very tech driven - looking for exits and setting realistic expectations on possibility of non-FAANG. What other startups do you target and what are potential things to look out for?

It’s tech heavy because they are the few that can sustain our high salaries. Plus they have the capacity to absorb endless consultants trying to exit.

Why do you say endless? Bc they are growing?

My focus is supply chain / procurement to be specific. Most tech doesn’t just come out and have procurement roles though - they’re hidden somewhere in ops or finance. To be fair procurement is highly functional skill so it doesn’t matter what industry if you’re doing non-product (indirect).

Following this!

Totally depends on your interest and domain and to be honest; there are multiple non tech roles in FAANG too.

I need some advice, Wife forced me to buy her a $68,000 car with 1000/monthly payment for 6 years. We need to sell now due to potential move out of country. Best offer from dealers is 52k. Meaning I have to cough up the difference or keep paying 1k a month for something we don’t need. How can I reduce this liability??

Late night thoughts - I cannot figure out when to throw in the towel on consulting. I just switched to a Big 4 role two weeks ago and I feel like my stress has shot up significantly. I hate traveling for work and I want a role with good WLB. I know two weeks is nothing and I feel like a failure for giving up so easily but I feel I'm just not made out for this kind of life. Should I just suck it up and stick it out for two more years for the exit opps?
