    Depends on whether you want to work on your technical skills or business skills. Having come from a big4 consulting firm - I learned a lot about client management, framing/positioning a message, managing politically complex situations, business concepts, etc. But from an intellectual rigour, technical skill standpoint.. not so much.

    So it really depends on what skill you are trying to develop further on.

      How did you crack FAANG coming from a Big4 consulting firm? Are you SDE?

      Nope, not an SDE. I have an engineering background but have always worked in the business/consulting/management side of things.

      - I somewhat regret not spending my younger years getting technically more proficient. For example, I’d love to attend the AI/ML bootcamp, but I know the math would be too hard for me now.

      - On the other hand, I am pretty resilient in dealing with messed up situations and solving non-deterministic problems. And I find that this is really appreciated.

      If this is your first job out of school- you just need to realize that it doesn’t have to be your last job. Figure out what you want to learn - but realize that some things are harder to pick up once you get comfortable and have other responsibilities unless you are very very motivated. :)

    Two things. The pay is fucking garbage- this is very well known. The WLB is worse.

    The only thing you will get beyond decent experience at best is patience. In all honesty, that is extremely important so there is value in being at those places.
