About to join FAANG from MBB. Since I haven’t started yet it’s hard to say, but most of the team I’ll be joining is ex-MBB, so level of talent is probably similar

Worked at BCG and Google. Talent is pretty similar but I find Google's business folks to be more laid back and chill; people aren't as gung-ho, which is expected. When it comes to technical talent (what FAANG prides themselves on), there's no comparison obviously.

In my second year at BCG (associate). Have largely enjoyed my time and done well at the firm so far; however, have recently been frustrated with project work (more interested in true transformational work and haven’t done much of that) and grueling hours on things that provide little to no value (tons of backup slides, etc). In that light, a firm like Alix Partners comes across as quite interesting. If I’m able to make the move @ the 2 year mark, should I consider joining as a Vice President?
