Especially if it's a top corporate experience vs a tier 3 consulting(B4/Accenture).
I've heard a few people on here say 2 years consulting is basically equivalent 4-5 years in a corporate role. Obviously, this will depend a lot but I just wanted to get people's honest opinion on if there's any truth to this.
Been looking at consulting and as alternatives, business analysis or CF FLDPs within a F500. What I'm really looking for down the road is a good pay, interesting work, and a good work life balance, like 5 years down the road. I'm down to grind it for the first few years though if it will help me grow/learn a lot more.
What I'm trying to answer is if Consulting is worth it to forgo something like a top FLDP because I will grow more from it? I'd most likely break into a tier 3 consulting like MC at Accenture or Big4(at a non-target state uni) or a boutique. MBB or other top tier are probably a reach.
The way I'm seeing it right now is an FLDP will give me some of the benefits of Consulting: exposure to higher level management(mentorship), diverse experiences via rotations, potential access to strategic/big-picture work via some rotations while also positioning myself pretty well for the future, developing a specific valuable skill set and decent work-life balance.
I'm just starting to get internships in these areas, so would really appreciate any input from more experienced people.
