We have the big strat part as well as , op model, org design etc. I don't know that we are doing the reward program integration, if we are status strips for all other consulting firms for anyone be,ow SM seems about right

I have full trust in our team there. I know the guys on the ground and they're working hard to do this the right way.

I have two offers - same comp: Big4 A - I used to work there so I have some network and connections. But it’s a specialized group in niche industry (good balance of provision and compliance) Big4 B - never worked there. It’s a provision only group specialized in tax accounting but no specific industries (probably will see everything) I value my network especially in the middle of the pandemic but I don’t really want to be confined in a niche industry. Provision > compliance. Any advise? TIA!
