Lol what? These aren’t even comparable levels

Lol exactly

I’ve been both an MBB and Big 4 partner, and the answer is it depends. FAANG PM and SWE aren’t remotely comparable levels.

like

What service line in B4 and MBB and in what order?

This comparison doesn't make sense. For example, Partners and SWE's can end up with the same net worth by the time each is 30 something years old, but the SWE will likely have a much smoother ascent whereas the partner's comp trajectory will be more back-loaded. In most cases, SWE's can get by with doing less work, etc.

MBB partner for sure. Unless said SWE or PM is a very very high up in leadership of their FANNG (eg EVP)

like

Engineering doesn't work like non-technical careers where you need huge scope and manage a large team to justify high comp. More often it's more about expertise and specialization. For example, top ML PhDs with publications at top conferences can get 500k+ new grad TC even though they don't manage anyone.

Would you leave a big 4 to go to smaller company? This is in consulting. At current company on partner track but could be 5-7 years and at smaller company ($1b rev) it would be 1-2 years. Partner comp is similar (top Partner obviously make alot more at big4). 75% raise. Lobe my current company and team. Nervous company is too small and staff may be lesser skilled. Would you move? Nothing is guaranteed of course on Partner track. Would you only leave if it's Partner role not just MD?

Curious to know if anyone who’s moved from EM/PL/AP MBB role is happy? Moved to an S&O role at Meta and I’m struggling to see much benefit other than better WLB/less pressure. S&O in tech feels second-class citizen (lower influence), work isn’t as meaningful, slower and less clear career growth, slower comp trajectory. Feels like the only worthwhile move is to Product but curious to hear if G is better.
