Consulting Exit Opportunities

I’m a first year analyst and just got offered a strategy associate role at a software company with a 30% increase in base pay. Is there any reason not to take it?

OP, going to be dependent on company. Typically, growth is slower in industry, but still very dependent on the company. Consulting tends to have a clear cut progression to the director level, whereas industry is less clear

I was just talking to a younger friend who goes to Cal and It seems like the kids these days hate FAANG or at least Amazon and Facebook are not desired at all. I personally don’t see too many issues working at either Amazon or Facebook because I work at Deloitte where I’m sure we have many questionable clients and worked in financial services before. Curious on whether people are thinking about the ethics of their exit company when deciding to move?
