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.

if you have permanent job in CTS don't join contract job untill unless you have major issues/concerns in current job. They can throw you out 1-6 months anytime. Don't fall consultancy trap.

Well, this is under direct Deloitte IN payroll, but contractual.

Still don't consider contract job else use that offer to resign and search for better opportunity.

Looking for career advice. I’ve been offered the controller role at a relatively small company with a 30% salary bump than my current comp. Alternative is to stay at Big4 as a manager. I don’t have long term goal to make partner, but the technology available at Big4 is lightyears ahead of most small companies. Is having “controller” on my resume going to open more doors down the road than putting in another few years as manager at Big4?
