Hi, I just graduated from a pretty good masters in finance program and I have a few job offers that I would like to get some input on. My previous experience has only been as an intern but this would be my first real job and would appreciate any advice.
Company: Federal Reserve
Reports to: Sr. Economist who reports to Principal Economist
Type of work: international economics department, so would deal with things like forecasting, econometrics, briefings and supporting the Sr.Economist for whatever studies he is conducting
Company: fortune 500 company, oil and gas --- think Shell
Role: Strategy Advisor
Reports to: VP - Carbon Policy & Technologies who reports to Executive VP
Type of work: identification development and evaluation of opportunities and technologies to reduce emissions from oil&gas investments, long-term strategy related to this, economic analysis and business development of strategies taken
Company: a big and well known consulting firm
Role: Management Consultant
Reports to: Associate who reports to Manager
Type of work: consultant stuff, lots of travel, client meetings, analysis for whatever project I would be working on

Which one is the best option for an ambitious young professional? Can someone give me what they think the pros/cons are? What would be the best for a fast career progression? Also, for the second offer, what type of role is that considered...corporate development or corporate strategy or none?
