If anyone at your old firm is upset enough to be considered a "burned bridge" by your leaving after a year, then that person would probably be upset no matter when you left, be it after 1, 2, 3, 4, or more years. Do what's best for you.

Go for it.

Question for job hunters: I’m hiring for an open position on my team right now, but I’m also planning a lateral move to another dept within the same medium-sized company.

My new role would interface occasionally with my current team.

Does D tech strat do more strat work vs implementation/pmo? Similarly for S&? 2. Is it sensible to forgo 20% for S& prestige /exit ops? Big thanks! Deloitte Strategy&
