I'm 24 and starting a VP role at Citi today. I've always been interested in consulting, and had a few final rounds at MBB, but I've accepted offers at banks and now I'm making 130k and relocating to NYC.

I want to be in the sustainability space long-term, so would you recommend that I pivot to consulting after this role and lateral to the field that interests me, or go to grad-school/MBA and pivot to the field I want.

In other words, is consulting still worth it for me as an early career move?

Stick with Citi - you can find many other opportunities at Citi after this role. Don't start thinking about moving just when you started this. You will never make kind of bonuses you will make in finance in consulting.
