Choosing job offer - MBB vs. in-house
Interested in knowing whether you would go for (a) brand name and optionality or (b) industry interest (and pay) if you had to make this choice?
I have two entry-level FT offers in consulting. One from anand one from an in-house consulting firm.
I figure most would go with MBB, but the in-house seems like more fun IMO. Below are the pros I see with the in-house but would be interesting to hear your thoughts on how much optionality I would lose and how you'd value this optionality.
High quality and is at a very large company (but not too well known outside the industry)
In the industry that I am currently most interested in (but I am a youngster - this could change)
Total comp is c. 10% higher than the MBB
Work hours are slightly better and stress levels are fair to assume lower with closer relations to the clients
I am quite open-minded regarding long-term ambitions, but my dream is to pursue entrepreneurship or work on the, with a current preference for the industry/adjacent industries that the in-house role is in.
Most grateful for any $ .02 on this!
