I’ve worked at EY for 1 year as an auditor making $53k. I just got a job offer for a consulting position that would pay me $85k. Would I be crazy not to take it?

More info- I’ve enjoyed my time at EY but don’t see myself lasting past senior as I hate busy season passionately. This new job would also pay a yearly bonus around 7% and would be in a higher COL region.

If you hate busy seasons which us a few months of the year, all the best with consulting and busy seasons all year round!

Honestly, the benefit of staying within EY is that (if they are doing the same as pwc) digital and tech are probably a huge focus now and there are tremendous opportunities to build consulting skills within that realm without the scrutiny of being a “consultant”. You might lose some money in the short term but I can attest that I’ve been able to gain a tremendous amount of skills and bring value far beyond what I was capable of if I had switched to consulting vs taking advantage of digital and the firms current investment in it.

I literally JUST did this - moved from 58K to 83K, to a higher COL, but still like the decision

Cyber: EY vs Accenture - which do you think will give me better exit ops when up for Manager (2-3yrs)?

These are just gut feelings tho, would like input from people in the know.
