At PwC client facing, was a data scientist not a SWE. Weighing pros and cons on Sr. Technical product manager for SE team and business development manager at a biotech. The STPM role looks like a lot of requirements gathering from stakeholders for software. What does a business dev role typically entail? I have been shying away from business dev as I want some wlb. I do like the high level long term strategy type work. I am not the best at small talks and not a happy hour person though.

I have been thinking about R and tabelue. Pls let me know if I can learn something that is most demanded in the industry.

I'm a data scientist interested in tech, ai/ml, and data science for social good, public sector issues, and etc. Comp is a high priority along with WLB and prestige/exit ops. What companies should I consider? I have been doing research on companies that meet my criteria. AWS (which has a significant public sector practice and does ml consulting work) tops my list. Palantir is on it too, but it doesn't focus on AI/ML. Aside from that, seems like there are slim pickings. So Im looking for input!
