I know there’s a lot of buzz for Product Management from B4-type consulting work. Is MBB to PM also a common route? Does it make sense to go after MBB if PM is the goal?

Not really - it’s different type of work you might as well try for PM straight out of B4/ACN/T2

Consulting to PM is more common at the pre-MBA levels (especially for folks with CS background)—it’s far less common at the post-MBA levels I wouldn’t say that overall it’s quite common, it’s doable but going to be harder than going to your standard biz ops/strategy role. If you can snag a decent PM role now (maybe it’s not Airbnb/google type now but somewhere reputable) would highly recommend that vs. MBB. Know multiple people who did the former from big4 early career and now are quite far along in their PM pathway. Certainly do not need the detour into MBB.

Does anyone have any experience with the relocation clawback provision recently? I took the payout option and have been preparing to move, but just found out I was approved for permanent remote work. I am grateful for the option, but still plan on eventually moving to the Bay area and if given the choice not until after a year or more. For employees who eventually did not end up moving within the year (but were still with Google) did the clawback provision still get exercised?
