Google PM vs Mckinsey BTO
I recently graduated with a PhD (in EE) and I was fortunate to get two wonderful job offers. I am currently torn between taking a position as a Product Manager at Google or an Associate at McKinsey Business Technology.
I would eventually like to start my own company. I am not sure in which field, maybe high tech. However, I also know that plans can change, as evident by my PhD :) . I was wondering which job would best prepare me for running my own business and also provide me with the best future opportunities.
I would imagine that google would kind of pigeon-hole me into the software business, while McKinsey gives me the most breath but little operational experience. How easy/likely would it be for me to go to Mckinsey first and then to Google?
Thanks in advance for you feedback and insight.
