Would you choose an opportunity that is much more strategic, good growth opp, but literally the most mundane industry ever, or a more BD focused role in a growth and interesting industry

Depends
Are you planning for long term? If so, go for the growth and interesting industry, roles change, but industries tend to stick around if you’re not in a consulting role.

Can you picture yourself working 5+ years in a mundane industry? If so, may be worthwhile to pursue the role with better growth opp and aligned with the type of work we do.

That being said, BD sounds interesting too. I get why it’s hard to make a decision.

Also depends on the growth industry and your view of it. For example, cannabis seems more promising than scooter shares. At least to me.

How do you deal with a manager who is annoyingly relentless? Who would set very high unrealistic expectations without even understanding themselves the time and effort it would take? So for example, instead of manually fixing an isolated issue that affects a tiny population and move on, they would ask you dig deep to find the systematic reason of what’s causing it. Understood the motive, but in the interest of time, other engagements, and practicality, sometimes it’s best to just move on
