Hi, I just left as an SBA. Tech is the way to go to maximize pay and WLB. Tech strat, bizops/bizdev, and PM roles (usually only if you have a CS degree already and get a bit lucky). TC can range anywhere from 160k on the low end to almost 300k on the top end if you’re lucky enough. Most non-technical SBAs can likely expect something like 180k (130-140k base, rest is stock and bonuses) in Big Tech, I think (based on my friends’ experiences). Most technical BAs should be able to safely clear 200k TC for semi-technical roles (e.g., PM)

Received MBB offer, which I’m very grateful for. I have a medical degree with some work experience. I want to stay in healthcare. I like pharma/biotech, provider systems but also early stage healthcare investing. Certainly open to consulting long term. Few Qs: is the promotion pipeline any different for advanced degree folks? What sort of exit opps would be available to someone like me post MBB? Would my skill set/knowledge base be uniquely sought after, or not really? Thank you for your help!

The senior partner sees the sense in this a mile off. Now the question: did the senior partner include the junior in order to get him to ask these sorts of questions?
