Interviewing at SM level at Big4 in Risk Advisory. Some say that going into the role without consulting experience or a solid network is career suicide.
Should I quit while I am ahead and withdraw prior to the partner interview?

Can only speak from analyst experience but risk advisory (assuming it’s not technical like cyber or analytics) is pretty simple conceptually. Depends upon team requirements but it’s definitely not suicide to do it, banks will literally take anyone in big4 risk if it doesn’t work out for you

You be fine in Risk Advisory. More of an issue in Consulting - coming in at that level without consulting experience or firm network makes it a steep curve.
