Currently not happy with my service line (risk). Have an offer for Big 4 FDD which I am interested in. Long term goal is to get into more management consulting roles. I have recently gained interest in restructuring and like how it can have more of a consulting aspect. Would it be wise to take the FDD offer? I don’t have a restructuring offer and haven’t even tried recruiting for it. Also it’s not the easiest to get an offer in FDD out of my current service line so I don’t want to waste it…

Why did you pick Consulting as a career choice? Was it only the prestige or really the dynamic environment, travelling, or money? I just exited with a much better offer. I will be making 30% more money, 40hrs/week contract, BMW car plus unlimited and free gas card.
However, some colleagues are looking down on me while I will be earning more and having a better WLB. Im very confused since we all had a miserable life (>70hrs/weeks) and I don’t get why they are still so „pro Consulting“.
