Which is better a “senior consultant” at EY or “Project Manager” at a local large organization?
I’m currently a business analyst and recently k was offered a promotion to Project Manager.
Meanwhile, I got another offer from EY as a Senior Consultant
My current company are willing to match EY offer and they want me to stay.
Part of me wants to join EY as it’s a big name on the resume and I can learn a lot from it BUT another part of me wants the PM and comfort zone in my current job.
Thanks

Went to a wedding last weekend and was just told the entire wedding party tested positive for Covid. The wedding was super small, 100% outdoors, and we were told everyone was vaccinated.

My g-ma wanted to meet my baby and bc she has cancer, we agreed. She wasn’t (and still isn’t) worried. I, however, am sick to my stomach with worry for her.

Just heard of a firm that's reopening - for those who want to go back to the office - and the procedures are insane. Each attorney's office is sealed when they leave, valet needs to clean steering wheels when giving cars back to people, masks are enforced, eating is prohibited unless alone, there's a specific place to get Uber Eats orders, etc. This is simply impossible to maintain in the long term and must cost a fortune. I don't think we'll be going back to the office before 2021.
