Just out of curiosity, with a prior MBB stint, successful startup role and top MBA under your belt, why would you want to go back to MBB?

I actually really like the work- only left because got an offer that was very tough to turn down. For me the combo of interesting work/comp offsets the lifestyle (and realizing I don’t think I want to be in tech long term). But of course may always change

What kind of role did you do at the startup? Also why gre over gmat?

Strategy. GRE because considering applying to dual degrees. Also have a liberal arts background, and the GRE seems gives a lot more differentiation to verbal ability

Serious q: I'm choosing between a two BI/Ops type roles, one in a FAANG in Dublin, one in a less-known corporate in London (where I'm currently based). FAANG pays 70% more and is a more interesting / more senior role, but I'd prefer staying in London where all my friends are / where it's warmer and sunnier. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna take the FAANG role, but has anyone else struggled with this type of career vs. personal life trade-off, and how did you reason about it?
