Tech consultant in what? Someone in Cloud consulting would make more than a SAP consultant. SWE at where? There is a big difference in SWE salaries based on company.

Typically though, SWE have higher salaries straight out of undergrad and top SWE roles pay more out of undergrad than tech consulting roles pay people with 6-8 YOE.

Salary growth is better in tech consulting than SWE typically, but that growth is usually from taking sales and management responsibilities at some point.

Well you don’t have to be. But your salary will top out at like 200K - 250K if you don’t get involved in sales in some capacity.

The job of partners at most consulting firms is to sell. You typically don’t make partner if you don’t sell.
