What jobs does one get with an MFE these days? A long time ago I strongly thought about applying for a program, but decided to go work in consulting for a few years first. Wondering if I missed out on anything.
I have an MFE degree from top school. If you're making 250k+ as a developer stay where you are. Most portfolio managers or quants I know don't make that much until 2-3 years out of the MFE. Some don't ever get to that TC honestly. If you're ok w 140k base plus 80k+ for several years, then I think it's worth the fun. I loved doing it when I did, but I'm done with this career. I'm making more where I am now (not a quant anymore)
