New grad wondering if I should take a full time offer as a plantain business deployment strategist or a Microsoft PM. Both are similar compensation besides the fact that Palantir's stocks are options.
Palantir is in NY Microsoft is in Seattle
Take the BD strategist. The amount and variety of work you will get as a “Echo” as Bd strategists are called in Palantir will let you grow way faster than being a PM at Microsoft.
Echoes do a huge variety of things with in the team. From client relationships to project management to even people management. We have plenty of echos with 1 or 2 years of experience who handle presentations to C-level execs of various Fortune 500 companies, partake in multi million dollar deal negotiations and jump start multi billion dollar projects.
As a entry level Microsoft PM you will spend most of your time sorting tickets and managing squabbling between you dev team and it’s dependencies. Not the most fulfilling job I say.
