Need job opportunity feedback.

Current gig - FDD M2 - will get promoted this year. In a really good group with great people and partner. Pay sucks.

Potential opps:
-ACN M&A strat - Manager - base is at market and substantial pay raise (50+%) with nice sign on bonus. Perf Bonus is likely 10-13%. Currently have offer

-A&M PEPI CFO Services - way smaller base than ACN but crazy TC upside with utilization bonus. Still in interview process. WLB will take a big hit.

What would you choose?

Seeking advice! I received a job offer today and definitely want to accept but have 4 weeks of FTO on my calendar mid June through mid July. My current firm has an 80% utilization target and I’m in the 90s and booked the time towards the end of our fiscal year (july31st) to make sure it wouldn’t affect my utilization. How do I go about not missing out on this time off? I’m exhausted and need a break but it looks like the new firm would like to staff me immediately if possible.

I feel I’m penalized for being efficient. They asked me to help prep TRs even though I’m utilized 100%+ while the others who claimed being busy are at less than 90%.

Does Accenture really “not have utilization?” This seems unlikely or like a half truth, what is the catch?
