I have 2 offers / anticipated offers in hand. The first, a corporate FP&A position within a F50. It is my understanding that the this is a high-level consolidation role that provides reporting and commentary to senior management. My biggest concerns are that is on the "expense-only" side which really narrows the scope, and that it might not be too analytical / data driven, given that it is a consolidation role.
The other offer is not so surely in hand, but I feel confident that I can lock it up. It is within the Treasury at another F50 working on daily / monthly forecasting for risk. It's not your typical risk role but encompasses a business-wide view, and does a lot of modeling and forecasting.
My long-term goal is to work within strategic analytics. Whether that be corp strategy or corp dev, I'm not sure, but it really interests me to be a part of the overall decision making. Do you think I would get good enough exposure to the analytical / data side with the FP&A role to make it down this route? Or should I pass up that offer and take my chances with the Treasury role?
