Got an offer at a top bank. Pay is better, but flexibility and hours will suck. 2.5 years in Advisory and this new job is way sexier. I actually like my current work, but weekly travel is killer.

If it really is a dream job for you then you have to go for it. Don't want to regret later


You'll still have your consultant fishbowl friends :)


That's what I'm thinking. I always dreamed of leaving big4 for a "great opportunity" and now that I have one im panicking ill miss my DT friends and the millions of vacation days. But... On to new things!


You are young and need to take risks! Remember that you can always be a boomerang and come back to Deloitte or any other big 4 if you wish! Life is too short to wonder what could have been!


Complacency is bad. Take the leap and good luck


How much better is the pay?


What will roles/responsibilities be at the new gig?


That sounds like my dream job. I'll switch with you and you can stay in my advisory position and I'll go there haha


Question is - do I just take it cuz it's a "dream job" and suck it up? If it sucks go back to consulting

Base is just 16k higher. In advisory so going from 81->97 base. Small new group so not sure how great bonus will be. Nervous about being committed to 1 kind of work for what could be years - no new projects :/

Working on a new operational risk model for tech. Rolling out a new program for the whole bank. It's a new role. No boring audit or compliance work - plus I get the bulge bracket name on my resume

Honestly it sounds like interesting work, and something that would stand out on a resume

Greed is good. Take it.

You can always come back
