At what point is it considered optimal to make the jump from Big4 to FAANG? I've been a Tech Consultant at EY for a little under a year and, while I like the company very much, I do very little actual technical work. Experienced hire, Senior, 130k base. I'm very tempted to jump over to Amazon (despite their reputation for frugality). Do I attempt to make the switch now or wait until I get promoted to Manager?

Word of advice, jump when you get an offer. Don’t wait, bird in hand is worth two in the bush.

+1. When you get the opportunity, do it. Optimizing “time to exit” always fails. Same as trying to time the market

Thanks for all your advice. Made the switch to Amazon and more than doubled my TC.

Great story, happy to hear this!

Amazon over 4+ years typically pays much better than EY.
If you are an SDE or a TPM and can get that kind of job, you should take it.

If possible wait to manager (that’s my understanding) because it’s faster to reach manager in consulting vs industry

How much do mangers at EY make? Your negotiation leverage depends on that

They cannot ask your comp, but given that we all work for large consulting firms, it is relatively standardized (more or less). Plus, they use a variation like “what is your expectation”

You should switch. I joined EY with 13 years of experience at 140k as a manager. Within 2 years I got 20% raise.
