Entertain. Have the 20 minute recruiter call. See how comp and level looks. Then decide. This way, you never have to wonder "what if" later.

If a big-4 sized player entered the game without a partnership structure where attrition wasn’t a part of the strategy, would they be more competitive and profitable?

Can anyone help me evaluate whether I should take an exit opportunity. Currently in big 4 (fsrm) and have the opportunity to join a f250 payments firms internal strategy division. They report directly to the c-suite and said they mainly focus on strategy or M&A and don’t do implementation. The team seems really nice but I’m just worried about leaving consulting and leaving the accelerated progression. Would love some insights as I’m fairly lost on what to decide. Thanks!

I went back to my old job when I lost my job. This was probably more an emotional decision. My old manager and team welcomed me back with open arms.

Am I horrible for wanting to leave even though they asked me that I was planning to stick around for more than a few months. Any advice appreciated!
