Post MBA- would you go MBB or FAANG (including non-faang tech) ?

Not everyone wants to work in tech! Funny how FAANG starts to sound like the be-all end-all industry job in this echo chamber. What about people interested in healthcare? Banking? Oil and gas? Any other industry? Facebook and Google really just exist to sell ads. Sure it looks good on a resume and it’s a great fit for some, but there are more interesting places out there for many of us.

Guys, gals, these questions are getting painfully repetitive. Please include _some_ useful level of detail when asking about complex comparisons.

I’d like to think mbb vs faang is not as ambiguous as beth vs mary. Many of the factors you’ve listed will be unclear/Not guaranteed. I was looking for a general direction of which industry people think is a better move to pursue, all else being equal. But it’s ok

Post MBA went into consulting. Had offer for Facebook but couldn’t bring myself to work for them. Good decision if you ask me. Specially after all the crap it has been revealed about them lately.
