FAANG is not an official list of companies. It was coined by medial yo show up and coming companies in the early 2000. Better list of companies should be SP 500. That is an official list and would try to get a job in one of those companies.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

For "senior" roles at FAANG, does the title correlate well between the companies? Unlike the discrepancies we see between consulting firms?
