Consulting bowl I need your advice tonight. 5 YOE in corp finance (industry). Just got an offer for different finance (still industry) role - 50% raise to $165K TC plus two additional direct reports to me. However, I got my MBA to transition to consulting and am in beginning stages of two top consulting firms. I need to give an answer on the offer by tomorrow afternoon. What do I do? If I expedite the consulting firms processes they may (likely will) say no. Thanks

Honestly $165k with 5 yoe is quite good (of course fishbowl will disagree because everyone here claims to be making 5x that in year 1 lol)

Accept the offer and still interview. You’re in my exact situation. I’m in finance for industry companies (healthcare) and a top consulting firm reached out to me 3 months after I have been working a new role at 170k tc. I went through the process and got the job at firm. I will be putting in my notice next week and it sucks but they will find someone else to replace me.

Accept and keep interviewing. Get the 50% increase now.

You never know if the others will continue, how fast they will so, or if one or both will go on hold.
