What do you want to do with your life? What are your ambitions? What will make you happy. Do you know what you will be working on at the FAANG? What about at MBB—is there a specific practice area? Mostly I try to figure out: 1) Which job will I enjoy the the work most 2) which job will help me achieve my goals and 3) which job will I find most fulfilling Could be either, but nobody here knows enough about you to tell you.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I am quiet happy about the tech stack at FAANG, but the peer group is not that great. Monetary aspect is not a high priority for me at this point as I am 28. It’s the peer groups vs technology stack that’s giving me night mares. I might really enjoy working with MBB folks working with a wide variety of client base but it hurts my learning experience in terms of tech exposure. I might be completely wrong though. It’s same service areas within the data engineering teams

Listen to ur heart. Choose money.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
