Sounds like a red flag. Interviews didn't go well but you still got an offer? Run.

Oh ok. I can't read. Congrats!

During the technical interview, the SME kept disagreeing with the answers I gave (even though I am right) and I thought I have failed. After 2 weeks of giving them a deadline, they have finally decided to move forward for final rounds. During final round, HM brought up one of the projects I led with the company but eventually ended sourly, not because of my work but nonetheless. And finally, to all those who says consultants can be swe. I’m finally exiting as swe to do something I enjoy.

Yes. Consulting isn’t for me, especially not for PPMD path. It has become more and more stressful as I moved up.

Congrats! What was the new comp package?

Deloitte: I see there is an HR policy that allows you to go 60-80% whenever you want to/in any role so long as there is a business case. Does this ever happen in consulting? Is it more likely to be approved in certain groups/with certain skills? I’m thinking it might be feasible to stay here if I could could go on a reduced schedule after baby 2. If that’s something I could work towards and prepare for in the year or so prior, I’d like to set myself up well for it! Any insight is appreciated!
