Ez just swap places with the MBB who wants the sweet FAANG exit

Lol, they should have incubators who do that, but again slots would be limited, implying competition, implying the same scenario. Lol

It's highly possible but there just isn't a lot of interest. For junior folks they'd take a pay cut with worse WLB. For senior folks many don't like the idea of selling.

This is right. I was an analyst, then hopped to tech and work half as much but make more than a senior consultant now. Most people I interact with are running away from consulting, not the other direction

Wanna trade?

Nope - from FAANG to mba should be doable. I had opportunity with Bain and McKinsey. Bain was for either general or analytics consulting track. McKinsey was digital track. Both were consulting. Focus on those groups - you’ll get in if you have a good role at FAANG.

But again VERY different character traits to be successful in both. Very few people are good at hardcore tech work and strategic / structured thinking. Tying those things together isn’t easy no matter how cocky the guy on either side is.

The real question is: how to get into mbb or faang if you are an accountant

Quite a lot of people intern in FAANG (albeit generally SWE) then goto MBB full time
