Prophet Consulting Engagement Manager or Uber Product Marketing Manager?

For context Iv been in consulting for 6 years at Big4 and a boutique straight out of undergrad. Going into this process I told myself I need to exit consulting and broaden my work history, but felt the strong urge to apply to Prophet since they were at one time my “dream consultancy”

Got comprable offers from both…anyone have any advice or thoughts on how to chose or have a strong feeling on one?

What was the reason why prophet is/was a dream consultancy and do you think that experience will give you the experience vs Uber PMM?

Kinda depends what you’re looking to do. Uber will have better wlb but if you wanna stay in consulting and do digital/product prophet is a good gig

Prophet is sweet and should give you some good experience, but agree it depends on your long term goals and short term trajectory goals. I think it’s longer to get promo after manager at Uber vs prophet you’ve got EM->SEM->AP in the same amount of time. But I hear the longer you go in consulting the harder it is to exit

It is harder to exit, because consulting only often seen as less credible in many companies the more senior you go.

Go client side - will make you a better consultant, even if you only do it for 6 months. Prophet will most likely hire you again if you choose to go back to consulting. Feel free to DM me.

Congratulations!

What was the salary offered from prophet? Curious how it compares to other consulting firms

Thanks!

I am a newly promoted supervisor who has been with my company for 3 years. The promotion came with a salary increase & I was happy about that.

Maybe it was my bad for not asking for not negotiating my pay raise, but I am wondering what you would do in this situation?
