Get out of risk ASAP. That will stifle your growth especially if you are interested in strategy. You will be stuck making significantly less than others and have no translatable skills

Do you know where I should apply to? Not sure if T2 or MBB would take me. I could apply to the other Big 4’s but it might be the same thing as EY

Too many people doing risk, so not a very specialized skill to get into as a young professional.

Would a payments niche be more valuable long term? I know that landscape is constantly changing

Get out of risk while you can. Industry might be slower progression but you can always go back to consulting after a year or two as it’ll be much easier getting your foot in the door with strategy experience

Do you think it needs to be strategy consulting firms specifically? Or should it just be strategy anywhere?

Hi, I am hired as senior test engineer for automation testing profile in EY AND WIPRO The reason I am not selecting EY is just because I don't have any practical exposure working in automation testing and I am afraid that it's better to work in Wipro and get practical exposure and then try for big brands like EY.
