Consulting

Would you choose a data analyst role (more SQL/BI) at an AirBNB/Lyft/Uber level company or a data scientist role (machine learning, modeling) at a F500 group with a newer engineering department?

Really? They are just starting to build out a data science team. They poached a bunch of graduate degrees and have built infrastructure over past few years, but I’m worried the tech company would be well better at tech even though it’s a lower level role

I’d do the latter. You’d learn more in the second position and I would think it’s more interesting.

oh crap I misread your post! thought you were deciding between SQL/BI at F500 and ML at tech... ooops lol. Your dilemma is one tough cookie. I do people the culture at tech firms are typically better/more intellectual oriented than finance-focused companies

First one sets you up for FAANG later which pays more then other industry roles

They pay similar...the point of my comment is if you go to f500 industry it’s hard to get into FAANG later if that’s your goal and they generally pay more as you go up. Pay may be similar at lower levels but many sr manager and above make $400k plus which is not true at most fortune 500s

My own perspective would be both are great but choose what type of work you want to do. First time will be more BI more business data focused other will be more dev focused. If you’re interested in building more dev skills than latter more business insights and consulting esque role then first. Choose whatever type of work you want to do

I think that’s something you need to figure out, i can’t answer both are great opportunities and will set you up in 5 years
