Choosing between two very different post-MBA offers (non-Finance), help wanted!

Hi all! I'm new here, and not a finance person per se, but hoping to get some outside perspectives... I'm in my second year of my MBA and have two similar offers from very, very different companies:

Anheuser-Busch
Bank of America (Consumer)

Does anyone here have any perspectives on these companies or programs and what kind of career progression I can expect from either? Any red flags? Has anyone lived in Charlotte or Saint Louis and
can give honest opinions on that as well?

Hi all! I'm new here, and not a finance person per se, but hoping to get some outside perspectives... I'm in my second year of my MBA at a top-40 school (think Penn State, UT-Dallas, UF Hough) and have two similar offers from very, very different companies:

Procurement/Sourcing Manager, Anheuser-Busch
Product & Strategy LDP, Bank of America (Consumer)

The offers are similar in nearly every way, and I'd be happy with either choice from a monetary perspective, but the company cultures and specific job responsibilities are very different. I get the feeling that I'd have more flexibility in my future if I went with BoA, but my background is in Product Management and Marketing in Tech, so the idea of doing something totally different is somewhat appealing.

I'd say BofA Charlotte, but it seems like a limited amount of information.

Which pays more? Is one significantly more than the other?

Nope. They're basically the same w/r/t salary and signing bonus/relocation; I'm leaning BoA just because of the exposure I'd get, but just hoping for feedback on the cities and how the two programs are regarded within their respective companies.
