Google would be a great move, but the role is literally just a sales role. nothing great about it, I wouldn't waste my time

Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.

Do it. Once you have Google on your resume you can go anywhere.

M1 were you at Google as an FTE or contractor? Have never seen anyone leave Google as an FTE and come to big 4.? Assuming OP goes with Google, they will be responsible for their own career or progression, just like any other place.

Account strategist is not a good role and does not pay well. So many uninformed

Waiting for peeps that work for Google to chime in. But, my thoughts are that is most likely not a good exit.

It’s a sales role but you can also internally pivot. My gf does it and is planning on transitioning to a product management role next year. Once you’re in google you’re in google

Also if you can get started early in Google cloud sales, there’s an incredibly high ceiling, both at google and other software companies. Top software sales people make 7 figures

If you’re okay with cold calling and a generally sales role I’m sure you could leverage the google name, but from what I know these roles don’t pay well

Go for it! You can pivot into so many other things at Google!

Feel kind of silly saying this, but getting more concerned about covid-19. I’m 28 y/o, generally healthy but think I may have high blood pressure, which I’ve read raises risk. Anyone else feel similar

I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

every time a consultant glorifies their coffee addiction and reveres Starbucks, it grinds my gears. But this is cruel - close the damn stores.
