Offers wise, depends on stage of career- 1) undergrad for internship 100% (family friend at small tech company) 2) undergrad for full time 25% (1/4) 3) mba for full time 10% (2/20) 4) post mba for lateral 66% (2/3) 5) post mba for PE exit 0% (0/1) 6) post mba for market development 0% (0/1) Interviews wise 1) can’t remember undergrad 2) mba ~70% interviews (16/23) 3) post mba haven’t applied for anything just recruiters reaching out / networked in. So 100% (5 companies that I agreed to interview with)

75% thus far

Without N sizes, % offer rate doesn’t tell us much

Always get a second interview and have gotten to the very end in about 5 or 6 high-level (C-level or SVP) strategy roles only to lose at the end. Did get two offers that I turned down. So, I guess my success rate is about 2 for 8 or 25%.

Similar results for me as well haha

Interviewing with AWS as a L7 - however the automatic email said Senior Solution Architect (L6) when the Recruiter asked me to interview for Principal Solution Architect (L7) - Managerial. I've been taken for rides before where they over promise and then waste time throughout assessment etc. Passed all the aptitude tests and silly work and email tests pretty much just asking if anyone else have experienced this with AWS - is it a valid concern? Or am I being paranoid?

Non-accounting rant…Our lease is up at the end of April and we recently got our new lease contract. All of a sudden, the leasing company is requiring renter’s insurance. It’s apparently a new requirement for all new and current residents. It’s definitely a good thing to have, but isn’t there some sort of requirement for landlords to communicate big changes to leases in advance and not just stick it on the lease and hope everyone reads it? It seems kinda predatory and sneaky.

Does it make sense to make a lateral move from a Big 4 Advisory position as a Manager to a small (less than 100 person) boutique management consulting firm? Compensation and title are both the same but WLB will be much better at smaller firm (talked with current and former employees) and opportunities to advance in the company could be great as they are looking to grow rapidly. Base compensation overall is $170K in a T3 city. Recruiter wants to set up an interview.
