I started working as a consultant with EY 8 months ago. Even though I'm content and learning a lot there, I think there are places where I might easily earn more money. I received a job offer last week from Alvarez & Marsal to work as a consultant at the Transaction Advisory Department (financial due diligence team), where I will be paid more fairly (salary & bonus). Should I accept it? Or would leaving EY that early not be wise?

A&M is always gonna be among the most competitive in comp. Almost certainly more than EYP.

Imo there’s almost no such thing as leaving early in consulting. It’s very similar work everywhere, the skills are highly transferable, and the work and industry are mercenarial by nature. If you have a better offer it’s the firm’s job to keep you.

Had a recruiter call me about a job I was being considered for, but didn’t know the salary range, the bonus figure, or the PTO. Basically none of the information a perspective candidate needs to know to form an opinion of whether or not this might be a good fit for them. This isn’t the first time I’ve dealt with this kind of nonsense either.
