Thoughts on Dentsu Aegis? I've received an offer for a role (promotion) and thinking about whether it is a sound move - especially in this environment. They went through furloughs and pay cuts in April due to COVID. I'd be making the move from EY which is a great company to work with - but there is such a long line up to get a promotion, and for roles I've interviewed for internally I get the good ole - you were awesome and it was rly close, but someone was just a better fit.

Depends on what you want in life, really. You can move on from DA after couple years into another company with a promoted title. It’s gonna be very different from EY for sure, but they are also a consulting type, just in advertising, so whenever clients drop out they cut the staff. What is the role they are offering?

With all of the mergers it’s hard to say but when I was at Mcgarrybowen, Dentsu were very fair and competent. I don’t have any affiliation nor context with the Aegis merger but would give a thumbs up for Dentsu. Good luck!!

Thoughts on investing into rental properties vs putting money into market? Had 2 HUD rented properties and currently selling them and unsure whether to invest in purchasing another one or just use that money to buy stocks. I’m worried that low income renters will struggle with paying rent due to losing jobs because of COVID. Thoughts?

I am in strategy consulting now, and am looking to switch to Data & Analytics role in the industry. Have a background in chemistry (which isn’t massively statistics related) and have 4 YoE in strategy consulting. What are the level of coding skills required (is knowing Python / SQL already more or less okay or do I need more specific languages eg Scala), and is doing MS in DS recommended? Think I need to further develop my coding skills too :/
