I'm interested in opinions on an exit opportunity. Would you leave BCG at the Consultant level for a promotion to a middle/back office VP role at JPMorgan? Similar TC for both, but much better wlb at JPM. What are the downsides?

Could be dead end job at JPM, depending on what you are doing in back office. Are you looking for a long term job to settle into?

I think so. I'm losing interest in consulting and the go go go mentality. I make enough to be happy where I'm at now.

Would you enjoy your work at JPM?

Yes, definitely. The only real concern is on career progression.

You could always do it, go back to consulting if you get bored and sell your experience as an expert in back office processes for financial services.

What part of the bank? Downside is raises will be minuscule if you’re not revenue generating/front office. Culture is also very hit or miss.

I think one of the underrated reasons the market is trading is algorithms and sentiment analysis.

I want to understand why was Arthur Anderson kicked out of the audit business. I know they played a major part in the Enron scandal. But still these days we are seeing scandals happening. Someday we see EY name popping (Wirecard) KPMG or some other Big 4 but we still hold a strong position in the market. Then why didn't Arthur Anderson in accounting and audit business especially what I have learnt that it was largest among the big 5 at that time?
