Advice needed: My previous MD recommended me to another project, to which I said yes yesterday. However, I just got offered a 10 month local role today which I really want to take (contd below)

Why do you idiots always want local projects?!? You're doing this all wrong!

Tell your MD that this opportunity better aligns with your career goals, and keeps you billable for 10 months. If the other engagement isn't starting any time soon, then they have time to backfill. Now if that project bid you key, and they are starting soon, it'd be bad form to rescind.

as its a more interesting industry, client, longer term project and local. Would it appear had to go back on my word to the first project?

Leaving soon for brand management role in CPG which I’m really excited about but curious if this will close the door to opportunities (product marketing, non technical product manager) in tech in the future. Really interested in the brand management role but if I end up not liking it the comp trajectory is not nearly as good as tech and wanted to know if that door will still be open. 2YOE, if I make a switch would likely be at 4-5YOE assuming I don’t go MBA route

Someone in my group just jumped from Accenture as a senior analyst to Deloitte as a SC. I’m currently a C at Accenture but really tempted to make the jump and reach for SC or M. I know I’ll get paid more and do the same shit. Currently at 120k and I spoke to a SC at Deloitte that has the same position and they make 160k. I like the people here and the culture here though. But at the same time I want my next move to be out of consulting. Still worth it to make the move?
