Got an offer from Capgemini Invent at Managing Consultant and met the leads a few times, and everyone is really keen for me to join and there is a solid skills fitment. They are looking to double in growth so there is light at the end of the tunnel to Director in 12 to 24 months tops. This morning had a screening call with Alix Partners who want to give me an accelerated interview process and considering me for VP/SVP Problem is I am unsure what to do, should I defer my joining with Cap for the Alix Partners opportunity (which I might not even get}? From a career perspective I feel the AP role would be significantly lower but the renumeration they have offered is same funnily. Keen to hear thoughts from others. Thanks! P. S. all of this is in London, UK.

I'd be candid with Cap - something like "I'm excited about this fit, but there is an opportunity I wouldn't feel right not exploring. Can we defer my decision for X weeks?"

OP. I met with the leadership at Cap in the UK. They wanted me to come in as industry lead in consulting and I was genuinely interested - they were writing up an offer. I asked to have a casual meet over coffee with some of the people that would be my peers. Industry or service leads- After 40 mins of coffee I phoned the headhunter and said I was no longer interested. The quality of the people was shocking. Mediocrity in extremis. This was 2 years ago so it may have changed but I strongly recommend you do your due diligence

The jobs don’t jump across companies as far as I know. I work for Cap, through a director I was referred to an invent job. Apply for it. You can try Sogeti and Liquid Hub too. Similar purchases by Cap.

Can you tell me your career goals? If you do that I can help you on if Alix is a good fit.

What's your current role at D? Cap's Director maybe on par with Alix's SVP depending on the practice. Maybe share the practice as well?

Work longer hours for more money or with dumb people and shorter hours for less money.

Wait to give Capgemini an answer, focus on Alix
