Would rather do biz ops than PM, even if both at FAANG (gauging by the stress levels of my friends in both), but depends on your tolerance of stress vs pay

Absolutely true that at the same level, you earn more in PM than BizOps, however in most orgs that I’ve seen you can climb the BizOps ladder a lot faster than the PM one, so it could actually even out. A lot of PMs get stuck at GPM (Manager equivalent) while BizOps gets stuck at Director and those 2 levels pay the same.

Curious if any MBB folks can shed light on current hiring environment. Undergrad campus hire at Deloitte S&O recently laid off in the COVID cost cutting wave after 2 years.

Have heard from a few MBB friends that new hires with offers aren’t starting till end of year. Any chance of a lateral move right now?
