Where can I find reasonable work/life balance in cyber? I love the work, but want to focus more attention on family/friends.

Background is IR and strategy, ~8 YoE, CISSP. I generally interview well for manager and senior manager level positions.

Never knew Federal work was easy going but good to know. Are they mostly technical roles?

Both technical and non-technical (paper work security as I call it: RMF, compliance, etc). Not all federal projects are easy going but many are. Mostly because the government is slow so we sometimes have to operate at their speed. Also some of the fed contracts I’ve been on have been large, and well staffed. So not a lot of work per person.

+1 for Federal

I was industry (corporate IR) before consulting. Rarely ever did I work over 40hrs a week.

However, it can be slow paced and boring unless there is an actual incident to work.

I'm a US citizen working at Accenture in Tokyo, wanting to move back to California. L11 now but should be L9 this year. Trying to plan my future move. Timing-wise, is it possible to transfer as L9 into an L7 position? If so I'd try transferring maybe 3 years into L9. If not I'd try transferring 1 year into L9. Do you think it's possible to transfer to San Francisco / San Jose Accenture from Tokyo? Is it just a simple transfer form or do I have to find a job over there and interview etc? Thanks!

Talk to me about schedules, please. I recently moved back into an IC role and am once again responsible for developing project plans. I absolutely loathe building schedules but I can’t seem to pin point why. Maybe because building a good one with dependencies takes forever or because no one looks at them or because they seem outdated. Why can’t prioritization do the work for us? How do you all approach schedules? Thoughts? Ideas?
