Hi guys,

Got a lot of help from this bowl. I had an improved resume here that I would love feedback on my resume. I was aiming to apply for fulltime positions at MBB, Big 4, FAANG and the bunch but honestly wanted to get an idea of how I would fair. Also would appreciate any feedback as to what skills l should further add

Do folks in tech reach higher levels of compensation than consultants 5 to 10 years post MBA? I still keep in touch with many of my classmates who made a beeline to work for FAANG firms post MBA, and their compensation absolutely dwarfs that of MBB and Big 4 by a fair amount and the gap only seems to widen with time. The wlb, by all accounts, seem to be much better too.

Would love to hear from anyone else who made a similar move or knows others who jumped to tech?

Assuming your goal is to eventually end up in tech working as a product adjacent role like PMM, strat/ops, etc. role, would you prefer your first gig out of undergrad to be at MBB or a big tech company like FAANG or MSFT? Assume initial comp is similar - both bases around 100k these days.

I’m currently a product manager at a FAANG and my department head recently engaged one of the MBB to help new vertical expansion. My manager and skip have put me as the primary point of contact with the associate and senior consultant - and while I like them as people, it’s clear that this is their first engagement in this vertical and have no understanding of the industry.
How do I navigate this situation and help them help me?

I wish LinkedIn's job search area had a subfilter option within the "company" filter where you could filter to "Fortune 100" or "FAANG" or "MBB" or "United Nations Agencies," etc. — and it'd apply a filter with a bunch of companies matching that option rather than individually selecting each company that you want to include in a search. That'd feel pretty intuitive and save a lot of time.

Should I renege offer from MBB?

An MBA recent grad. I signed with MBB last year. However, I have always wanted to do tech PM. I couldn’t find PM job in Fall and just signed MBB offer I have. I recently got an FAANG offer. It’s PM function, hard to break in with consulting experience. I declined the new offer during interview stage and again after they gave me initial offer, but it is coming back with 80k more in annual compensation. It made me so torn!! Should I renege MBB offer?

I’ve noticed for tech companies. The difference between T2 and MBB is marginal, the process is meritocratic and fit-based that gets you the job. The brand only makes a difference for getting into buyside processes. So wondering if it’s worth taking a BCG offer, vs. Recruiting directly for FAANG.
