I would need inputs to decide between a Lead BA in a Insurance product firm and advisory Manager role with Big 4 Insurance practice team. What do the fishes suggest and why?

I'd say PM. BA work could be anything from documentation to functional testin or even software development..PM has its merits with the stakeholder mgmt, leadership, and project tracking capabilities that come with the role.

Salary, growth outlook, WLB, and next steps. These are the criteria I would explore.

WLB is getting worse across industry! Salary is same but bonus is higher in Big 4 Travel is 20% with product firm and possibly way higher with big 4 in non corona world

I think if you are ready to put in the work, product manager seems a lucrative exit everyone wants to exit to. If you are getting a straight path to that, spending time in Big4 won’t be too advantageous. I know product BAs work across the firm, from marketing, business inputs, customer insights to technology teams. It is an impactful role if you make it such and that will open doors for you to move to product manager. My 2 cents will be to negotiate a little on RSUs, joining bonus and base to sweeten the deal and give up the brand name of a B4.

I’ve had countless interviews at a few agencies, all with 4-5 interviews taking months at a time to continue to receive the email “we went with another candidate but everyone loved your experience and thought you’d be great”. I feel so down right now, and I keep thinking it’s me. How do you stop feeling so discouraged? I’m still at my current company/role, I’m just not happy at all so looking to find something/someplace new.

A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?
