On a serious note, yes. Easiest way is probably through MBA but I’ve seen colleagues network into interviews at MBB despite having a “subpar” background by producing great work and being knowledgeable in their field.

Unless your job at Amazon isn’t something you want long term, I’d think twice about that move. Two trends - most MBB generalists try to switch in MBB digital consulting track, and most MBB digital consultants try to exit to FAANG tracks, so trust my yellow patches exist on every green field.

So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
