Looking to exit from consulting to product management. Assuming an offer of equal value from WarnerMedia (Digital Advertisement Team) and CapitalOne (Commercial Banking Team), which would you recommend as a stepping stone into the product space? Long-term goal would be product management at FAANG.

Depends on what type of product you'd like to manage at FAANG. Personally, I see more value in Warner Media if you want to do product management for content services at FAANG.

As someone who's done the same, albeit more on the technical implementation side, I'd still say go for warner in that case.

I feel like product management folks from finance are a dime a dozen and the product experience you're going to get won't be as varied (don't get me wrong, I'm sure you'll get valuable experience, but I think you'll get more that'll set you apart at warner).

Fwiw, I work in a fintech rn and most of our product management folks come from non fin backgrounds, so if you ever want to pursue cap one down the line, shouldn't be an issue

I’m trying to get a good idea on whether or not to leave my current firm. I have 10 YOE in the military (similar field) and departed active duty last year. I was offered 95k to start where I’ve been for the past year, but have already been offered much more for an industry position. I’ve done the PMP and CSM thing, am getting my TS/SCI now, and am about halfway through my MPA. Is it fair to tell my company I would only stay for at least $127k? Or am I just a complete noob?
