FAANG Exit to MBB? 3.5 YOE, Non-technical, 150k TC Been at Alphabet my entire career post-undergrad. Undergrad was a pretty general liberal arts degree and haven’t pursued grad school yet. What would it look like (from a TC + long term career standpoint) to switch over to consulting for a year or two then go back to my non-tech tech lifestyle?

This isn’t really specific enough. If you already know you want to go back to what you are doing now, what are you hoping to gain by leaving? Just money? Why not look for an internal position that will stretch you or at graduate school in whatever area you are interested in? You might find better answers starting with where you want to go and working back through what will help you get there, vs just adding a name to your resume to boomerang back.
