FAANG if you want to do PM work. MBB will lead to many other high-paying exit ops if you don’t want to pigeonhole yourself just yet

You made manager at 3.5? Way to go!

8 years at Deloitte lol

Accenture manager makes 140

Unless the bands changed NFS since I was there, 140k is starting salary

FAANG for wlb

Agree with B1! If you want to eventually do PM work, go to FAANG and dont look back

During phone interviews, Ive tried to avoid giving salary expectations like all the advice out there and it never works. Recruiters always press for a range. I have an upcoming interview with amazon for an executive recruiting coordinator and let me tell you…. Ive been applying for years and never gotten this far! Lol so i dont want to hinder my chances. If being pressed for a salary range should i give one? Also does anyone know a the salary range for this position in seattle?

Hi everyone,
I am in the last stages of an interview process and I really fucked up a 15-min talk with some on the team. I’ve already spoken with two collegues and it went very well, but this one I totally blew because I stuttered, was super nervous and could not answer the questions properly. Considering that I’m probably not a favourite for this one guy, what do you think my chances are for landing the job? Can I do something to “save” the situation?
