What are the Exit opps in bay area for a non tech background (mech engg) and mba with 5 years industry exp and 2 yrs m&a consulting? Zero coding skills.

I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
