Did anyone make a transition from being an MBB data scientist to a FAANG data scientist? 1. How did you differentiate your value proposition?

How good is your firm at helping you to acquire new technical skills and business knowledge? I am at a big four, and there is 0 appropriate technical training. I have to pick up stuff on the go and honestly feel like an amateur, just pulling solutions out of my ass..I hate to look back and realize how I could’ve produced better quality work.

For those Tier 2 folks that left for MBB, what has been the difference so far? Will you advise others to do it, especially if doing great at T2? If your goal isn't "partner", does this change the DMP?
