Hi, I was wondering I could get some advice - I have an offer from Oliver Wyman in Asia and a middle market bank for an S&T position in NYC. The middle market bank is quite strong in S&T and the OW office is relatively smaller + has a different culture compared to OW NYC.

Not much we can help you here.

Do you want to work in Asia or NYC?
Do you want to do S&T or Consulting?

You've got to make those decisions.

^ This.

Other questions that could help your (OP's) thought process:

  • What are your long-term aspirations (if not S&T or consulting)? Which of the two roles will better set you up for those goals?
  • Do you want to take this opportunity (early in your career) to experience living in a different continent? If you want to be in US long term, does OW have a good internal mobility program to allow for movement back to US (or other countries)?
  • Which of the two roles interests you more? And is something you would be more naturally adept at?
