Biz dev will.

BD is more on the sales side.

None will pay better than a top performer at MBB, even SWE. SWE will likely pay better for average performers.

Of course sales has the highest pay ceiling at FAANG, but it’s tough...

Agreed - it gets very hard to beat MBB or even tier 2 strategy consulting pay post manager as a top performer... but that obviously comes with downside.

Biz dev (not sales - no quotas) at AWS does pay on par with top performer comp at MBB / Tier 2 strategy houses.

When being asked “why MBB”, is in-person working a legit reason?
I joined a T2 last fall and have so far worked in-person with team for 3 days in total. I’ve never traveled. I’m positive that this working style will last at least throughout this year
While I like what I do (and I believe I’m decently well at it), I want to get more in-person working and traveling opportunities to connect with my team
