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

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.

I am a Web Developer based in Grand Rapids, MI. My primary focus is Magento development and managing / building the 7 sites my company owns. I do front and back-end development. I got a raise from $12.50 an hour as an intern to $22 an hour 6 months before I got my degree. I was happy with this raise initially. A year later, I am 6 months out of my degree and have 3 years of experience at this company. They gave me a 5% raise which puts me a $24 an hour. Is this fair considering I got my degree.

How many tries did it take?
