Have been wondering how much FAANG product managers get paid vs MBB for a like to like year of experience. Example, 4 years out of mba one would be Principal at BCG vs level 7 PM at Amazon. What does the delta look like at 8 years? 10 years etc?

From the research I’ve done I think for most (who could become partners and succeed) a consulting partnership is the most profitable pathway. Have read that while the RSU / Stock-Incentives at FAANG increase drastically above L7, it’s very hard (improbable) to get there for most.

I don’t think it’s highly likely at all just because you’re willing to put up with all of the BS. It’s still very selective.

I’m dubious of the L7 claim at 4 years post mba, especially in product. But putting the feasibility aside, if specifically talking about Amazon vs BCG, I would guess you’ll be better off at BCG. If FB or Google are in the mix, then I’d lean towards industry. If you haven’t already, check levels.fyi

Amazon L7 != Google L7. Think that is where people are getting tripped up. You join Amazon at l6 after bschool and Google at l4

Principal at BCG>> L7 at Amazon (keep the stock inflation to the side). That was not the target comp. stock has been on a crazy ride

I think 350 is probably right (well that was the offer my wife got)

Converted my summer at a low/mid BB in the ECM team, however now been offered an analyst role at a MM PE firm (~$1bn AUM). Although my team at the BB is far from prestigious I’m just looking to hear some other opinions before I accept the PE offer, one thing catching me off guard is that most of the IP come from non-MBB consulting backgrounds so I’m wondering if this is really a good exit. I’d be taking about a 10% pay cut compared to IB but progression to roles with carry is open.
