Slightly different - I left BigLaw for a MidSize then went back to BigLaw. Interview was fine, surprisingly, no one asked about it (I switched practice groups so they were more interested about that). My spin for going back to BigLaw (based on my experience): better resources and training, access to more exciting clients/work, and this firm happens to have a well-marketed Diversity Committee that I’m interested in joining

See above. + what I didn’t say: better exit opportunities, more money, & my old firm doesn’t have the practice group I switched into

Say that you live in country A. You apply to a job in company X in country B (connecting with a director through LinkedIn). 4/5 days after a recruiter talks to you for a position in company X but in country A. You strongly prefer country B over A, so you state clearly to HR that you're willing to be part of the process only if you can also interview in B. You do not bring this up again and are in last round for X in country A. You have not heard back yet from B but prefer it. WWYD?

I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?
