I know this switch will be really hard but I'm preparing really hard to get this offer. TS happened quite accidentally. I've interviewed with them some time ago and they've just made their minds.... 2 years 9 months

I've said that: "There were no offers in management consulting (at BIG 4) when I was applying." I may have a chance at big 4 NOW but that's not my target. I need time for 2nd tier or MBB. 2 years 9 months

I can't be audit senior because I don't have 2 years of audit experience. My possition in accounting / controlling will be downgraded because probably I will stop my CPA My exit opportunities will be... 2 years 9 months

What I have to add is that TS job will give me 17% less money and I will be some kind downgraded -> in audit I will be a senior next year, in TS I will be 2 year consultant or something. I'm a little bit skeptical... 2 years 9 months
