I'm about to graduate and have an offer from a major global IT consulting firm and possibly also an offer from a large global bank (also in IT). Both are located in NYC.
Disregarding compensation, which one do you guys think is the better choice career-wise?
I'm leaning toward consulting because my assumption is that I'll gain a lot more experience and have a larger network industry wide.
On the other hand, if things work well at the bank I may have more options within the bank to move to where I want to be and/or be on a faster track to get promoted. I am also very interested in moving to an international destination (probably Asia) in a few years so I figure it might be easier to move internationally within a firm than from consulting to industry in another country.
Appreciate in advance for any help!
