So I recently started a position with Fox. When it was presented to me in interview, I was told I would be working aligned with Fox Sports & Entertainment, not so much News. Now that I’m here, I’m seeing everything I’ll be doing is with the News team & makes me uncomfortable. No diversity, outdated software & process.
Financially, it’s the best position I been in. But mentally in this environment, it’s depressing & slow. Nothing innovative or engaging. What would you do?

Hi Fishes,

I am a Consultant and on track to promotion to Sr. Consultant later this year. I saw and applied for an internal role of Solutions Architect (SA) almost on a whim to test my chances. lol 

Now, that I was invited for an interview, I am trying to understand whether SA would be a solid & logical next step. Would anyone of you share your thoughts and how you see SA fitting into the overall consulting hierarchy?
