FAANG forsure. People do MBB to get to FAANG, never vice versa

Getting into FAANG is easier than MBB. Why would someone face the miseries of MBB hours just to get to FAANG ;) if I get to MBB, I would rather make PPMD in MBB

The one you want to do for a living? This is a very subjective. What are you trying to optimize for?

Main goal is just make 700k-1MM range into perpetuity and chill after early 30s

MBB. You are too young for FAANG life. Do it later. MBB will accelerate your learning and capabilities + open doors.

@LEK1 it’s doable, but super hard and yes you’d be coming at post-MBA or just slightly above (L4/L5 at Google or L6 at Amazon), typically comp is a step up even if level is same as mbas come in on the lower end. It’s almost always an IC role.

Depends on who you are. Are you the Type A, grind away type? But prefer structure over self study? MBB Someone who cares about adequate hobby, family, free time and doesn't need to be CEO to be wealthy and happy? FAANG Second the opinions that ppl go MBB to get into FAANG. And that MBB when young will teach you a lot. But don't forget that there are a lot of terminal levels. L5 at Google is a rest & vest level. Less than 30% of the company is > L5, so if you need that L6+ title to be happy, then MBB -> FAANG makes more sense.

Wow! Do most companies have that same ratio of terminal levels vs others?!

OP mind sharing what service line you did at Big 4? Is it strategy?
