Which position considered to be more prestigious or better from Data Scientist, SWE with ML specialty, ML engineer, Research Scientist, or Product Manager?

I have a technical background with many years of experience in ML/AI field. Also, I have an MBA from top school. Which position considered to be in the top food chain in Facebook for someone like me? Which position has more visibility to executives?

    If you have to ask then you will be put at the bottom of the prestige stack.

    There are so many posts on prestige, it should have its own topic, instead of just Career. That way I can opt out.

      Data scientist might be lower. Hard to say.

      ML engineer ~ SWE. The rest you're right about.

    Any job with the word "data" in the title is crap, and adding cool sounding words like "scientist" or "engineer" doesn't make it less crappy.

      crap as in tc, or the job function itself? For any product with enough scope, you would think you have people dedicated to analyzing the data

    What I meant by prestige was the impact on the business. Internally, which role is closest to the decision makers.

    We are all silicon valley who**s!!

    However, on a serious note, I believe that in startups you can get the kind of prestige what u are seeking for.
