FP&A looks lame. Im chasing money and a position that doesn't make me want to shoot myself

like

It varies. 'Financial Analyst' is one of those broad job titles that don't actually tell you much, and won't be the same from one to the next -- even within the same company. To find out job specifics, career progression, areas of expertise, etc, you'll have to assess that for the individual positions you're looking at.

U can go into FP&A..

Well in that case just save yourself time and shoot yourself now. Nothing like that exists in this world.

Hi all! I’m talking to someone tomorrow on the team for a role I’m super keen on.

Need ethics/moral help from my fellow 🐟 I got laid off from ACN earlier this year. I accepted an offer and started at a boutique consulting firm exactly one month ago today. This morning, I got an email from Deloitte recruiting for the same position I’m in now, which is where I want to develop my career. Part of me wants a break from the big consulting firms, but at the same time, going to a Big 4 would feel more at home to me. Is it worth entertaining the offer, or should I just stay away?
