Has anyone submitted grad school applications while working in tech sales? Or have any managers here managed employees who’ve gone through this process?

Honest opinion—will my desire to go to grad school disincentivize my employer to invest in me?

Have two offers and unsure which to take. Ex Big 4 and have done software startups since. Option 1: Director role back in Big 4. Good package. Good fit with my area of expertise, focusing on tech solutions and partnering with startups. Working across all industries and clients. Option 2: Big Tech/GAFAM (level = L6 google/e6 FB/65 Microsoft, which I’m told is Director equivalent) Even better package. Account Technology Strategist. Less client diversity but using breadth of their tech.
