Strategy roles in tech, as close to the product as possible (higher comp)

Pharma/biotech still pays quite well (besides tech which was mentioned by SA1)

If you are pre-MBA, private equity. Will be a lot harder if you were a post-MBA hire

Will offer that some Financial Institution roles pay pretty well. For example, Morgan Stanley’s corporate strat/Dev team (called firm strategy & execution)
