Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?

I am switching jobs and my wife is pregnant.

Manager 1. Transfer from audit into FDD (and have to do one more busy season in audit), or leave to a financial reporting job at a large public co for 40% raise?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

Thoughts on options vs RSUs? I have the opportunity to choose one or the other (but not both) as part of my compensation package and I’m trying to decide which would be best to further accumulate wealth. For context, the vesting schedule (4 years 1 year cliff) is the same for both and the options would be offered at a 3:1 rate compared to RSUs. Additionally, the company is projected to IPO at the end of 2022. I’m 29 with a slight appetite for risk and plan to stay at this company for 2-3 years.

Is it worth it to go back to school for a better track to a FAANG company? The division I’m currently in seems like there are no good opportunities, and I have the funds available to finish my undergraduate full time (Canada). I applied to Amazon before for a highly senior position and made it to final interview so I think I would have a better chance for a new grad type role.
