Contd a way to use it as leverage to get a better raise

Probably not. It's in a different market so the firm won't view it as a comparable offer. As you mentioned it's in a way higher COL market and doesn't amount to a net raise.

I guess it's not a massively higher COL (high COL by EY standards in the US to London). But yah that's what I was thinking. Should I continue pursuing the opportunity to see what they offer?

Any insight into Mastercard Advisors? Have a new grad opportunity there. My start date at a B4 strat got postponed so decided to interview around. I'm interested in data + analytics and would want to go into industry eventually, but conflicted because unlike BA programs at CapOne or Visa, you're still working for an external client. Feel like there will be a broader variety of projects in B4 and while I'm casually interested in fintech, I don't want to get pigeonholed in FS so early on
