What would you choose? MBB (Digital practice) or Amazon PMT?

Background: T15 MBA student, 7YoE as Mech engineer, long term goal is to climb ladder in Tech, married and have a baby

Situation: I have a MBB and Amazon PMT offer for summer internship that I need to choose. MBB comes with FT offer, Amazon PMT will most likely result in return offer. If I go with MBB, I plan to exit to big Tech in 2-3 years. Y1 TC for both will be quite similar (around 230k).

Thank you in advance!

PMT and don’t look back unless you want to become a partner. If you want to exit to tech then skip consulting and take amazon directly. Amazon will also give you Good exits if it doesn’t work out. The whole do consulting for two years and the exit to tech worked in 2014. Today it will hurt you.

You bet OP. Happy to help. I just made the transition from big 4 to BizOps and it was hard. Personal connections got me into the door.

I graduated 5 years ago from b school. Back then everyone who went to amazon for their MBA internship tried again for MBB and all got rejected during first round interviews. They were upset / disappointed. Today a lot of them
Say that’s the best thing that happened to them career and financially (most have ~1m in equity alone)

Amazon for sure. Here's what you get to learn - Learn how to find an opportunity, frame it, pitch it ,execute on it, learn how and where you faltered ...incredible mobility too within Amazon.

MBB digital practice....I am assuming you will end up being more a Program/Project Manager where one of the higher ups or a client has figured out the problem to solve and you just collaborate with designers/engineers to ship whatever it is that they need. Such roles are plenty in the industry and often, folks are just wasting their time there lending a helping hand to Engineers and Designers. The skill gap here is that they have never figured out how to find a problem to solve, how to develop product strategy and how to figure out whether a problem is worth solving. The problem has already been "discovered". Folks in such roles usually spend time in "solution discovery + implementation".

Amazon - especially if your goal is to grow in tech. You can leave after a year or two for any other MAANG company or startup.

Seconded

I haven’t heard the greatest from Amazon, MBB won’t be a walk in the park either. I’d say think which would give ur greater exit opps

Do Amazon

I would say Amazon. It aligns with your career goals and like everyone said it’s easier to get into tech from other tech companies. More junior than you but have tried to get into tech for 6+ months and haven’t got an offer yet. All that to say the competition is pretty high for tech. Also it would probably be better for WLB and financially to take Amazon for your family.

The technic pm at Amazon is a hard life with poor work life balance. The salary can also be neat many places. The reason to take that role is you get to play in spaces with mass scale and it looks good on a CV

I’d say if you’re still figuring it out go for MBB, I think it’ll carry more weight on your resume.

But if you’re 100% sure you wanna be in tech than do amazon. As someone who came from consulting I can say it’s a lot easier to go from one big tech firm to another than go from consulting to big tech.

In tech I think amazon will more than make up for it.

When I spoke to the client she had no idea why the recruiter added angular react as it was just a Java developer position, Completely wasted so much time
