It’s awesome

Most people from MBB do not have tech as their exit op - you’re starting from a wrong premise. It’s one of many things that people do including startup, finance, corporate, and other exits

*most of to people from MBB I know

Trying to make this move right now, it’s not easy even coming from mck to go into PM.. you’re better off getting your Mba and getting any relevant pm experience at a tech startup.. all the work at MBB won’t do squat to go to FAANG pm..

Yup agreed with above - hard to get the good PM roles with just consulting experience.

More direct, is it not suggested to go from Product Management to MBB? No MBA
