I know a lot of people who worked in investment analyst type roles at big insurers then did B school and are now in banking and big 3 consulting. It’s not a bad gig if it’s truly on the investment side. Cyber is a nice buzzword but I haven’t been impressed with the teams I’ve met in big 4

Good point PwC 1. But if I want to go into finance, wouldn’t an investment analyst role be a better option...even insurance?

My apologies I didn’t specify enough...I guess I was going towards exit opps for both roles. Manager1 hit the nail right on the head.
