Curious what a FAANG strategy-esque non-PM role would be? Whatever it is, it sounds like it would not be generating 7 figures of value for the company every year, so yeah, probably not.

I mean knowing someone who actually knows the groups so they can point you in the right direction. A referral would be ideal

350 for l6 stratops in tier 2 city for total c. L7 can get to 450-500. L8 likely 600+. How much more do you really need?

General guidance is look one level Below for non-tech ranges. I’m brand new to google know very little outside of what I’ve been told

Up to and before equity partner (<500-600k) its definitely doable though trajectory may be slower/easier to stall at <400k vs MBB if you only get to middle management. Really tricky when it becomes 1mm+ equity partner comp on a consistent basis (outside of massive stock appreciation and payout). Strategy roles are not revenue generating so you’d likely have to be overseeing a larger number of ppl to get there and there are only so many roles up there. Remember MBB partners in some sense are high powered salespeople.

All partners are just high powered sales people.

No

Agree w BCG1 - leaving consulting you loose quite a bit of exposure to that higher upside obtained at partner level (essentially comp >600). It’s still doable in FAANG if you look at Sr. Director / VP, but your % likelihood of getting there goes down a bit compared to Partner (and it takes longer).
