FAANG Exit to MBB? 3.5 YOE, Non-technical, 150k TC Been at Alphabet my entire career post-undergrad. Managed to move from Google to a well-respected Bet where I’m very happy. Undergrad was a pretty general liberal arts degree and haven’t pursued grad school yet. What would it look like (from a TC + long term career standpoint) to switch over to MBB for a year or two then go back to FAANG?

Switching over for 1-2 years is silly. If you want to move over....commit to staying 4-6 years. Also keep in mind that your wlb will disappear. Are you ready to work 20-30 more hours per week. What do you in the evenings now? Cause that stuff will be gone

like

Agree on WLB. Disagree that two years is silly- most folks coming straight out of college go in for 2 years and come out with a valuable skillset - But one year definitely won't get you anywhere.

What level are you at - L3? Because some folks in Marketing start at L3 and move to L4 in 2 years, making ~$200K then

Yup, L3. I have a handful of friends in Recruiting & Marketing that were able to work their way up levels a bit quicker but I think I’m looking at 5-6 years (given my ladder + org politics) to get to L5 right now.
