I join a firm next week, another recruiter reached out to me today for a similar role but paying 10% extra. This new process will take at least a month. Should I cancel my interview or go for it ? Both firms have an equal standing in terms of the brand !

Depends on the companies. If it’s a minor player that you’re currently joining I would explore the other. If it’s 2 big 4s I’d be hesitant to burn a bridge for 10%.

Both are equally big in their own sectors.

That other role will probably be there is a year if you are still interested.

Ya that’s what I was thinking…. Will call up & say no… no point wasting everyone’s time !

Have the recruiter call to make yourself seem like a promising candidate, but don't move forward with formal interviews. This way, you turn the recruiter into a warm connection for later if desired.

Feels like the only worthwhile move is to Product but curious to hear if G is better.

I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA.

I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
