Very different and also not that different from audit. Exit opps make you better fit for FP&A and Corp dev. Still an accountant and have to work to shake that perception if you don’t want to do financial reporting. Pay is a bit better. Hours and stress are worse

It would not be that much at the associate or senior associate level. More like 10-15% higher at B4 although I am sure there are exceptions

I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.

When did you feel like you were successful? People around me think it’s impressive that I work at Deloitte; however, I’m miserable and hate the work I’m doing.

I just don’t feel like I’m good enough, will be happy, or be in a position where I feel like I’m successful as others.

Is it normal for a Jr Strategist to be the only Strategist on a project? I’m on a small team strapped for time/resources and 8 times out of 10 in this position, most of the time without any strategic oversight (unless I express needing help/support). I pull a lot of weight and my work gets great feedback from the Account team/clients - I can’t help but think that maybe I’m being taken advantage of by being paid a Jr salary
