I’ve been lucky enough to work on a lot of Big and famous campaigns but the one I enjoyed the most was Sega in Europe in the 90’s . As an example of an integrated team working with a clear objective ( destroy Nintendo by any and all means ) which we achieved in 18 months , it’s not been equaled . There have been better campaigns maybe but that experience is inextricably linked to Pirate TV .

Alright, let’s be dead honest. How many actual hours do you work per week? I’m talking sitting in front of your computer cranking something project related out or in meetings. Exclude ALL non work.

What’s the on site vs office vs WFH situation in India for consulting companies? I believe many companies have the official policy to allow WFH and give accommodations as needed, but also prioritize client needs. Particularly curious about those whose clients have started going back to the office.

More and more learning these softer lessons: perception is reality; office politics is real; biggest customer is not client but your manager, etc. As previous engineer, all overwhelming...

On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?

Is there anyone here who did a top Mba but then went back to work for two years for their original employer but then after that two years ended up exiting to either MBB or a faang type company?

Learned there’s an “excise tax” for over contributing to 401k. I was within the limit before my raise, but now I’m over. Also over the limit for a Roth IRA. Should I reduce contribution?....

c) on top of my 140K, I received a 45K bonus for this year, since I’m only at 8K for 401K I’m thinking of increasing my 401K contribution to 20% for my bonus so I can at least max ourt my 401K for this year . Good decision or stupid decision ?:)
