You know you just sound like someone who lost out on a job to a minority and use "diversity hires" as an excuse for not getting the job. I just left there and there was literally 1 black male in my entire 4 story building. 90% of the staff on center was white males over 40.
Avg tech talent with an MBA make 200k straight out of bschool. Potential to earn 500k-1M after a decade or so (director/GM). After 1M I think I’d call any additional financial gains diminishing. I’d start to concentrate more on culture, type of work, wlb, flexibility etc. Tech is famous for all those things, finance/PE is not. It’s a never ending death march to the elusive 7 figure salary which will eventually end up in a lawyer’s bank account after your wife/husband divorces you due to the crippling corporate lifestyle you’re expected to endure.
