Highly relative to your goals. Career progression drops off tremendously in tech (at least google) as promotions can take 3-4 (sometimes more) years between levels.

So if you’re ready to hit cruise control and are comfortable with the TC and role being offered then yes sure. If you want to keep on track with fast promo & comp then stay. It’s an $/hr equation but comp will progress much faster at MBB.

AAG, maybe if the total package was getting close to partner level (3-5years away). F, N and G have hiring freezes in place!

Not really possible to answer w/o more info on your goals. If you care about WLB and predictability, FAANG is probably better. Not staying you can’t get by at McK with good WLB if you solve for it but it’s certainly not the norm. If you know you want to work in tech, FAANG is probably better to get more direct experience and network

I worked 8 years as a product manager before joining the firm. If you are interested in tech and product development, product management is a great role for someone with a broad interest in business. Obviously the FAANGs are some of the best places to do product both in terms of impact and compensation.

Curious as to why you made the switch and if you’re liking it?

Currently a Wealth Advisor for Citi but I honestly hate it here with a passion it’s the worst company I’ve ever worked for in my life and I’ve been in Wealth Management in the banking channel for over a decade. Series 7, Series 63, Life, CFP, ChFC, and soon to have my MBA with a focus in Mergers & Acquisitions. I’m look to enter another area of Finance at this point instead of starting over somewhere else from scratch, but not sure what direction to go. Interested in Investment Banking or M&A.

Currently working as a Relationship Banker. Haven’t had no complaints with how Chase has handled the pandemic from the consumer banking side. Recently I was asked if I was interested in a Financial solutions advisor role at Bank of America. Things have slowly began to pick up at our branch and while I would like to continue my career at Chase. The bump in base salary increases as well as the earning potential. Any advice on how to make a decision? Things to consider besides pay?

Hey everyone, after 4 tries at the H-1B lottery, I was not selected. This was my last attempt. At this time I’m looking into alternatives. Firm is not supportive of relocating me so day 1-cpt it is. My questions is, my F1 expires in May, my STEM OPT expires mid July. If I do end up pursuing a CPT, how does F1 renewal work? Can my F1 overlap overlap with my STEM OPT? What would be the best term to start the course while maintaining legal status - summer term, fall? Thanks in advance!
