In your opinion, what would be the optimal career path?
Im BI analyst living in midwest low CoL place. I desperately want to gtfo from here as ive been here my whole life. i also want to pivot to SWE. would it be better for me to eat shit here and work on SWE related projects and then eventually try to move out to the bay area(or anywhere else really) or try to jump to a bigger company (FAANG etc.) as an analyst and pivot then?
