Here, you have to decide between WLB or the type of work. As you already have 11 years of experience, you have to prioritise one among the two as I am guessing money won't be a problem here. If you feel like the work can get better at JP Morgan, I'd suggest you to stay as good WLB with an interesting role is always great. Very naive suggestion but that is what I feel.

Is it GDS?

No EY India

You will have target in EY because you would be going at M/SM level. Targets are not in JP Morgan and it is 100% true that WLB is also there. But money is also important so better to join EY and if you won't be happy after 1 yr then switch to some other company

Left Booz last year to work for one of the beltway bandits. Culturally this is not a fit and I'm looking to quit. While I don't plan to go back to Booz or a Big 4, I'm considering a non technical role with a tech company in the DC or Reston area, preferably in partnership, BD or sales. How bad does a gap on my resume appear to recruiters and hiring managers? Any advice is appreciated.

I got a verbal offer from one of big 4 and the 💰 is decent. Here is my hesitation : I want to go truly because I want to grow to be a leader. I am a Sr. DS, specialize in financial risk analytics. I want to join Big4 ( as SA -DS) so I can learn what's new in the industry and see if I can contribute to white papers. Am I too naive? 🤔 I just read so many negative comments about Big4 and really got me thinking....
