I dunno - our knowledge specialists folks are really far removed from client work. I would think it better to try the transition to a better brand of TC

Good advice. I am also looking at that.

I wouldn’t leave consulting arm of big 4 to join our knowledge group. If it’s expert consulting then I would.

You have all the information you need, OP. Don't do it

Well it depends on what you value more. Sounds like you want to be client facing role though. Do you think you will be happy with non client facing role? (But yea I’d take the offer. You can always come back)

like

If I get an offer that's more than I make now, I should take it right? Even if my client facing time is low to none? Would this still look good since it has the MBB brand?

I am Pre MBA if I got my MBA (At a top 20 school) would I likely have enough interaction with partners to network into the firm once I get an MBA? Or is that not something they do?

I don't think that would give you as much of an edge as you anticipate. They don't know you from a consulting standpoint, only from knowledge management, which is back office

Told it's a client facing team with 40 to 70% travel in startup mode. Only 2 members so far. It falls under Vector.

If you get an offer, DM me. Happy to get another perspective from some friends who work internally.

I just found out that the most senior SEO specialist at my company ( technically SEO Manager title ) is making barely 6 figures. Am I crazy or is that unbelievably low?

Looking for Deloitte referral to S&O. 3 Years Industry as a Senior in Supply Chain Manufacturing, Ops, Distribution. APICS Certified, 6 Months in Big 4, dislike current service line placement/options.

8 months ago I opted out of a longer term gig with my company because it isn’t what I truly enjoy doing. Since then, I’ve kept my current role and have interviewed extensively, confidently turning down some roles, getting rejected from others I would’ve killed for. I’ve taken most of it in stride but was just told by my current job I have two weeks before they need my seat. The idea of being unemployed (25M) terrifies me but I don’t want to settle for a role I’m not ecstatic about.
