@KPMG1 Internship focused on Software Development (Front End). Which is more aligned to where I want to continue as opposed to random tech projects. It is a little bit of a step down with a small decrease in pay but I'm not sure if that'll pay off later.

Development is a different ball game. Lower ceiling IMHO but if you hate consulting then take it and don't look back. Companies often doubt the technical abilities of former consultants so this could be a great opportunity

Thanks for the feedback folks. EY1 you've summarized my thinking process as to leaving.

We can't get enough FE people at DD, try and switch into a studio roll perhaps?
