Tenured career leaders - I would appreciate your advice. If you were in your late 20s and considering a MBA (likely applying at age 31) would you recommend going to a well known, large consulting firm or a very small, unknown assessment management firm that would have a steep learning curve? The prior provides a brand but the latter may be more interesting. The latter would also be a career switch. Any feedback and thoughts appreciated. Always open to career advice :)
