Anyone made a transition from FAANG to B4 or MBB at PPMD level? I understand that culture and WLB is different... but was the transition hard or easy? I am a senior leader with FAANG and exploring options. My background is in sales, delivery, solutions development etc, MBA and MS. Thank you.

What is causing you to want to leave, C1? Most people I know in B4 (and some MBB) want to move to FAANG, not the other way around.

Honestly if ownership is your goal, I think the chances of owning something as a consultant are much lower than they are in tech. Why don’t you try to transition to a smaller tech company with a product you care about/ could own instead?

YOE?

Yes, it's possible. Position yourself to showcase your selling experience. That is the most critical factor they'd evaluate you on for that level.

If I go to the Middle East, I would join the Park team in the MBB (they already reached out) and I can eventually or move back to Europe and spend a year or two as manager and exit to PE ( I am not sure if I can exit to non operational roles)

If I stay in Europe I would lose on brand name and salary but I’ll be able to join a deal team.

Any advice

Comp Strategy Post: Are you familiar with the strategy called “jump and bump”? Basically, roughly every three years, you can jump companies and increase your pay by approximately 20 to 30%. My perspective is that this strategy is most useful towards the beginning of a career journey. It helps ensure that your pay stays in alignment with the market & helps avoid the trap of being “loyal” to a company that is underpaying you. are you aware of other strategies to maximize comp? Let’s share!
