Senior Consultant data scientist at D here (typically 4-6 YOE at this third level). What titles should I be considering as a lateral or level up at Microsoft, AWS, and etc.? "Senior data scientist" for a lateral? Principal for a level up? And any chance of getting into people management roles? I don't have experience with product management. Any other nuances I should be considering?

Working at D will not get you that kind of respect at AWS or Microsoft. The consulting world is a big step below the techie world in technical skill sets. I have worked in both. Tone down your expectations, people at AWS & Microsoft will not be considering you for principal at all and Jr is pretty likely. I’m not trying to be rude or snarky here at all. The level of technical detail is not there in consulting as a place making widely used enterprise software platforms. You might use PyTorch and Spark, etc, but at places like AWS and Microsoft, they create them. It takes a totally different kind of culture. For the most part, a place like D - they don’t reward extreme technical diligence as much as salesmanship or polish. Yes there are exceptions but it’s not the norm. The culture at D though - coding is for pawns. At AWS the people doing the coding could be paid the most. That being said, all that matters is the interview. So if you prep for the interview enough, maybe you can fool some people

What’s type of work have you performed?

Machine learning research with classical algorithms (no deep learning) and package development

What are you proficient in - sql, tableau, excel, spss, powerBi, etc?

OP: You are right in saying full ownership. The nature of projects are extremely complex with it being measure on large scale characteristics of data pipeline, caching, database characteristics, deployment architecture and configurations etc usually ending in full fledged microservice/application.

Lol but snark isn't that funny or helpful here. This attitude is extremely tiresome kid.
