Don’t do it! Give it to me. Seriously though, depending on the role and if it aligns with your lifestyle do it. You didn’t apply because you want to stay in consulting

It's people analytics role, wasn't looking to leave, it just came my way

What flexibility? Take it man! U can get points by other methods. Points guy!

It’s Google

Flex of changing roles clients etc

Points aint worth that much my friend.

That stock equity in the company is worth way more than these points. Plus credit cards can always get you points. But remember, cash is king

Cash is King. Truer words haven't been spoken

Yea . I'm waiting for comp, I heard that give lot of equity but low base

It’s Google dude, you get use of free bikes, food at campus, and if you’re lucky here might be an outdoor swimming pool too for your use DURING working hours

Can’t imagine the perks at Accenture being as good as Google’s. No one is folding my clothes at a consulting gig

Bahahaa I hear you all, gonna miss cons I guess I'm young so I will miss the travel flex trip etc

Hey op did you got this offer through LinkedIn?

I did not, I went to conference

Can confirm that google’s base is lower but equity is very high. They will probably give you much more than what you’re making at Accenture. If it’s a good role and a good fit, then seriously go for it. It’ll be really great on your resume as well

You must be joking?

Interesting! Just out of curiosity, which conference? How did a meet and greet translate into an offer?

You get free searches

Met them at diversity conference and went through 7 rounds of interviews lol

I need some unbiased perspective: four of us teach the same class and, as required, give common assessments. We discuss how many points assignments are worth, how much we curve each test, etc though we vary a bit here and there on all of these things. The problem is that one of us grades everything DRAMATICALLY easier. Their average on a 50 point assignment might be as much as 20 points higher than the other teachers. What do I tell parents who complain??

Is it worth putting down 20% for the mortgage to avoid PMI or should I put down less? Monthly cost for the mortgage payment, taxes, insurance, HOA fees, etc is estimated to be about 3000 a month.
