So I've received two offers. The first is from Allstate to be an entry-level financial analyst, $60K base but no FDLP. Also got an offer from UL for an FDLP for $63K base. For me the pros and cons go:
- Experience with F100 with opportunity to lateral out to other F500 in IL
-While not a FDLP per se, seem to rotate entry-levels around early on. I've requested to start in a proper FP&A role to get that experience
- Much more "recognized" company, brand value on resume moving forward
- Seems to pay around 10-15% better at FA/SFA levels
- FDLP program would expose me to audit and controllership reporting, which I haven't had a chance to do yet
- Might not carry cache outside of manufacturing/industrial sectors
I'm pretty undecided at this point. I'd love any input.
