Partners or seasoned consultants, I could use some advice here. I am interested in returning to consulting and I have two choices really. Boomerang to my old firm or go to a new firm. My old firm comp is 15% lower than the other opportunity but I think I have a better shot at partnership since I know the people / process (still 3-5 years away). What do you guys think? Any other reasons to go to new place instead of going back. It would be 2 years since I left.
