As an ADC applying this summer for 2022 start, I haven’t gotten a chance to connect with any L.E.K.

Any recommendations for books or materials to prepare for Amazon or FAANG product (technical) manager roles? I’m assuming this was asked many times, I haven’t had luck locating ideal threads but will keep looking as well! Any advice would be appreciated 🙂
Is there a hard limit on how frequent you can apply in a year at FAANG? (For instance: Amazon, Google) Also, how many positions are we allowed to apply? There are just many positions at different teams right.
Deloitte M or PwC SM? Both transfer pricing roles. Thoughts on type of work, culture, wlb etc. 🤷🏻♀️

Anyone else go to a really competitive high school / college? I get constant Facebook / LinkedIn updates from folks that went to my alma mater and everyone is doing super well (now doctors, lawyers, FAANG engineers) , and makes me wonder where I went wrong. I recognize that I'm doing better than 90% of the country working at KPMG, but sometimes I wonder what could've been had I worked a bit harder back in college. I know we're all on our own path, but do any of you deal - con’t
Both my wife and I work for FAANG companies. As the stock has recently gone through the roof I was wondering if we should try to protect the gains (covered call/put options). Understand we will be giving up upside but we might need to liquidate in about a year or so for a down payment. Any one ever done that? How would you think about the strategy here?
Honest question - Do you think Facebook will lose any of its appeal to applicants in light of the news that’s been coming out? Any chance they drop out of FAANG and some other company takes their place?
I love orange is the new black but can’t stand how the inmates make pop culture references that they wouldn’t even know had they been in prison since at least 2013.
I feel like Facebook needs to be removed from “FAANG” status and replaced with Salesforce, SAANG, or some other arrangement of the letters. Does anyone else feel this way?
Thoughts on “the social dilemma” on Netflix. Curious to hear from anyone working at FAANG that are actively working on predictive modeling for ads.

Married People/Life Partners - what conversations did you have with your spouses before deciding to become pregnant? No offense, but this question is for people that have actually planned and have leveraged 21st century contraception to do so along with strategic financial planning. I’d really like to understand the steps you and your spouses took before deciding to have a baby.
Need some advice: For context I’m an engineering student - I’ve gotten a role as a business analyst for a health tech startup that just raised their series A (10M) and is rapidly scaling.They brought me on part time until I finish up school in the spring. I negotiated to begin my vesting schedule now and I absolutely love the company and product-only problem is that I am losing all motivation for school…especially since it’s engineering. I’m going to finish-but how do I make it easier to balance

How did Tide go from that awesome super bowl spot to the train wreck they’re running now with that big, doofy dude?
Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?

I FINALLY have a start date for IVF STIMs 11/5 and my company is requiring us to RTO on 11/1. I’ve expressed concerns and have asked to extend WFH for a period of time due to medical necessity (if I get sick, the cycle is cancelled and I’m out $$$$ and my sanity) but HR is asking me and my doctor to fill out forms that essentially say I’m unwilling to get the vaccine, which isn’t true. Does anyone have advice on how to handle? They’re saying this is the only form that’s applicable.
So I just got the most fantastic news and I'm not allowed to tell anyone yet. But I'm about to BURST, soooooo... I turn to my anonymous social media outlet. Lol. My brother and his wife called me today to tell me they're going to have their first baby!!! I can't begin to express what a HUGE deal this is for them and for my family, and the long, difficult road they have been down to get here. I cannot wait to be an aunt!!! 🥰🥰🥰

How do you get better at contract negotiations? (I’m a 4th yr. in commercial real estate) I feel like I’m generally good at pulling together an initial draft of an agreement (ex PSAs)...but I struggle when comments come back. Specifically, I struggle with reading newly proposed language & deciding what stays, what goes, & what needs to be tweaked. Are there books I can read (or CLEs I can watch) to get better at this?
