I am a bit skeptical with this Contractor thing. Can someone guide me please? They say I don't have prior Big 4 consulting experience and hence this role.

Agreed. Looks shady to me.

Calling BS on it. I've hired CBC senior consultants and managers in S&O. Talent at Deloitte always tries to push you against the wall. I was at Deloitte for 9 years and left as a SM so I know the cheap tricks talent uses.

So what do you suggest, should I at all consider this option?

Are you sure you are in touch with Deloitte recruitment ? Feels like you could be in touch with some external company and they are offering role with Deloitte on third party payroll .

I need opinions on this. Just started a new PM role (at an IPG agency) last month but I recently got hit up by a recruiter from another agency (WPP agency) for a pretty enticing PM role on a 360 AOR account. Further context: The PM role I'm in currently is my first PM role ever (I came from an entry level AE/Producer backgrund) I know jumping ship for the other PM role would look terrible but tell me why you would OR would not jump ship?
