Deloitte Consulting Back Office vs Client Facing at Boutique

I have a return offer from Deloitte Consulting. It is essentially a revenue management role, assisting engagement partners in understanding their revenue positions, billings, etc. I found the job boring and the money isn't great, but I have a return offer.

Should I accept the offer for the Deloitte brand name and try to move into a true client facing consulting role after about a year? Or should I recruit for a better salary/more interesting role at a random boutique firm or do FPA in F500?

Should I go for $10k salary increase with (maybe) more interesting work at a random company or stick it out at Deloitte for a year for the brand name?

Thanks for the advice.
