Strategy& Healthcare vs. McKinsey Implementation

Hi everyone - long time lurker, first time poster. Wondering what you guys think about this situation. I know this forum is very prestige / brand / "tier" driven so I already know what many of you are going to say. What would you guys choose if you were faced with offers from the mentioned groups? This would be for an experienced, non-manager role.  

I've done a lot of implementation / execution consulting and working for the same client for upwards of 12 months can get stale. I think the opportunity with S& might be better from a professional growth standpoint as strategy engagements are typically much shorter and you get exposure to more clients. Comp seems to be pretty comparable across both roles. 

On a related note, are exit opportunities really going to be that different?

I wouldn't say "time to time". It's "whenever you can convince them you have the skillset needed, which is pretty often".
