Such a shame. Nuclear power is a stable source of low-emission energy and the technology today is very safe and effective. Another victim of ignorant fearmongering, at least in the U.S. and Europe. Nuclear power is growing healthily in China and South Korea, from what I've heard.

Wait. What kind of thread is this? I have stepped into an alternate universe where consultants aren't speaking b.s.

Huge sunk costs and little investment interest compared to other areas of energy like pipelines and renewables like solar/wind. Lots of community opposition. Essentially opening new plants is very difficult/expensive and unlikely to take off regardless of clean power act and push to divest from oil and coal

This sounds cool, followinf

V big obstacles to growth compared to other kinds of renewable energy

@pwc1 all valid points. Not the firm I'm talking to but look at Terra Power for some good reading. They use traveling wave reactor tech that actually uses depleted uranium as a fuel

Lifecycle per/MW costs are simply unsustainably high relative to natural gas and renewables. and there is little hope on the horizon.

But I would look at the opportunity more than the industry. There's probably opportunities to do cool stuff in the timeframe of a normal career - someone's gonna have to figure out what to do with what we've already got and how to pay for it, and those are well-compensated positions with interesting elements of risk assurance, project/program management, finance, regulation, dot dot dot.

I received feedback from a firm I interviewed with. Labor & Employment practice, in AMLaw 200.

I spent hours researching and preparing. Any tips for future interviews? (More in comments).

I just got an offer of 105k base.
When I started the interview process the recruiter told me 115-120k base (I have it written in my notes).
The hiring mgr (a friend) told me the team was “floored” by my performance in the interviews so I am inclined to think this is some kind of discrepancy, rather than a lowball. Especially since 105 isn’t even in the range she initially told me.
Anyone have tips on how to negotiate with the recruiter tomorrow…?

The reason for my move is currently at Pega SCs are treated more as AEs or Account Managers. The role at Oracle would be more of a true SC position. I also feel that Oracle will look BETTER on a resume and someone as young as me would have BETTER programs in place to train me and give me the foundation needed to be a successful SC.

Thoughts?

Thoughts: Managers and senior managers should intervene when project folks starts working more than 8 hours. It's sad that initially everybody talks about 8 hours work goal but employee forced or end up working more than 10 hours. Company is not asking you to work more than 8 hours, it's the pressure from peers and seniors and managers who do "a gentle request" to finish a task asap.
Also managers, Please teach new techies to hold the horses and not put there peer in pressure.
