  • NASA isn’t as hard as you’d think.

      NASA was the elite in the 60’s and 70’s. Now it’s mostly forced diversity hires doing project management.

      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.

      No thanks.

      I worked at a hedge fund, got very close to 7 figure comp. Thinking of moving to tech now, because there's hard to get a sense of purpose in finance.

      Sandia? A friend of mine in PhD worked there in Summer. It didn’t sound hard to get into.
