Currently working in product management for a SaaS firm, and want to break into finance- preferably within wealth management (investment related role, preferable not as a quant or middle office). What pathway could I take, give me both options, including and excluding B-School.

What I’ve considered:
1) transition to consulting and from there to IB
2) B-school to desired industry
3) go all guns out trying to get into IM directly

Would you take a job that pays well ($100k more) but not very interesting to meet your FIRE goal? It may even be a step down in your career but well… it pays well.

Or would you take another job that you are excited for, mentally challenging, definitely going to be more stressful but it is going to push you toward a more fulfilling work (at least to my ego 🤣). It pays a lot less.

How do you make sure you find an industry job that comes with the raise you want (within reason) without having to work more than 45 hours a week? One of my clients emails me at 10pm somewhat regularly. Another never leaves/logs off before 9pm for 5 weeks between quarter end and release of the 10-Q. I’d rather stay at B4 with our 6 weeks of time off per year (PTO + summer and winter breaks) rather than go to an industry job with regular long hours and half the PTO. Thoughts?
