Consulting Exit Opportunities

What do you do when you take an industry job and it’s not as expected? Been in a FAANG job for 4 months but not enjoying the actual role. Possible to recruit for new jobs so early - any advice if so?

Don’t suffer from Exit Opportunity Myopia. FAANGs are huge companies with various departments and many possible career trajectories. Identify the type of work you want to do at the company, and then work on networking and developing the skills you need to get there. In the meantime, do your job really well—it can only open up more opportunities at a company this large.

What is the best message when informing the rest of your company that someone was terminated? The backstory is that this employees performance has been struggling, he was put on a PIP, and in recent convos, he’s said that his role isn’t for him. As he is getting terminated due to performance, it feels more amicable now that he knows it’s not working and that he needs to find a new job. Thoughts on message to the rest of the company?

Had a phone interview with hiring manager last Thurs. Thought the conversation went well and the recruiter said she will be in touch as soon as she gets feedback from the manager. Now it’s Tues and nothing. Is this bad? Or am I just being too antsy? Do I need to chill out?😖

I was just talking to a younger friend who goes to Cal and It seems like the kids these days hate FAANG or at least Amazon and Facebook are not desired at all. I personally don’t see too many issues working at either Amazon or Facebook because I work at Deloitte where I’m sure we have many questionable clients and worked in financial services before. Curious on whether people are thinking about the ethics of their exit company when deciding to move?
