Joined consulting post-MBA, mostly worked in Bain PEG, including a few value creation projects, mostly growth stage. I love this and want to do it as a job all the time. Currently plan to stay in PEG forever, but sometimes I think I might like to be an operating partner in a smallish growth fund (no interest in deal team). Are lateral options down the track (don't want to start as assoc again) possible, and if so how? Am female if relevant - pre-MBA hard technical & middle-mgmt exp in software

Former MBB consultant - 8 YOE (5 pre-MBA tech consulting, 3 YOE post). Left after 2 years at MBB to Microsoft Corp Strategy. I am now interviewing for a role within Google for S&O L5 and have an offer call with the recruiter. My current TC is 285K and based on what I have researched in this group the max I can expect for L5 is early 300s. Is this even something I should try to negotiate? For me to move from Seattle to SF, I would certainly need a significant pay bump to even consider. Thank you!

<2B: Growth (C+) “Late Stage”
2B+: “Megafund”
