Pondering all 3. Currently at MBB, and these 2 seem like the next possible steps but I’m not sure which one is better or if staying where I am is the move. I have excluded other options because I have ruled them out.

How technical are you? For me the choice was between MBB and PE. I don’t have the tech knowledge or experience for a FAANG PM role. Amazon is the only Big Tech to hire non-tech PMs but the WLB / comp isn’t the same as the other players and the PM role is not a typical PM role based on what Blind users say. In this case, it was much easier to differentiate between the options based on comp and interests.

Very different roles but I interviewed for both LMM PE and FAANG and would take FAANG time and time again.

Pays much more at the pre-Partner level and WLB is infinitely better

Does the LMM PE fund pay much more than FAANG PM? If not, makes no sense to take that offer. At most PE funds, you're giving up a protected weekend and your weekdays are also a lot busier

These three careers are very different roles, cultures, WLB, and skillsets. Candidly, unless you are in your first year of college you should be able to give more direction to yourself, and it sounds like you are just listing prestigious positions. I’d recommend doing some soul searching on what you really want in a career. Do you live for work or want more balance? What type of work environment suits you? What type of work are you passionate about. Then re-make a list from scratch based on its affinity to your goals.

Going from Big4 to MBB soon. Currently on a long term project with a 2 person team (we're part of larger project team on client side). What's the best way to tell my internal account leadership I want to roll off the the project without telling them I am leaving the firm? I want them to begin search for replacement so we can do proper knowledge transfer and get client comfortable with a new face but don't want to tell them I'm going to another consulting firm yet.

They didn’t like being censored on Twitter or FB so they created their own safe space, Parler, and migrated there.
