2 offers on the table: Audit manager at Big 4, and compliance manager at a regional bank. Pay and benefits are better at bank, but afraid it will limit my future to only banking. Need advice

Hey- not only will it limit you into only banking but will also make you specialized within compliance. If you are already at a pretty decent firm I do not see the need to make a move to the big 4 for just money or the brand name. I would only take something if you generally are interested and if it can benefit you short and long term. Best of luck !

Consultant vs specialist track - I’m considering jumping to the specialist track since I enjoy the technical work much more. However, it seems like it’s perceived as a step back. But what are the tangible differences? Lower pay and benefits? I’ve asked my cc but she doesn’t seem to have much to offer. Also, is the culture different? ….I really dislike working with hyper competitive people, most in consulting are great to work with, but there seems to be a solid 30% that are bad humans
