PwC Advisory or EY Parthenon?

So, I've received an offer from both PwC Advisory (Deals Strategy) and EYP (Restructuring and Turnaround).

I've interned at PwC before and like the manager there. But EYP offers better compensation and likely more interesting work. 

Which should I choose to go to?

I'd lean EY Parthenon here since we're talking PwC Advisory. Strategy& would be a more apt comparison as the other notable B4 strategy arm

Unfortunately, Strategy& isn't hiring where I'm at, neither are they currently hiring in the neighbouring country (unless I'm willing to be an intern in technology strategy).

I was told PWC S&, EY Parthenon, and Deloitte S&O are in the upper echelon of B4 Consulting, while PWC/EY/KPMG/Deloitte Advisory is a tier below.

Deloitte S&O doesn't even exist anymore, most certainly at least in terms of a differentiated pay scale that is competitive with T2s

Also Deloitte Advisory =/= Deloitte consulting sans strategy, it's more of a risk advisory (i.e. accounting) type group

On comp/prestige etc. probably eyp.

But do you like restructuring/turnaround work? It is very different than deal strategy and what you'll do day in and out. Some people get more energy out of it and some don't so worth you pondering considering it will be your day to day life. If you are excited enough about deal strat work over restructuring then may be worth pressure testing the eyp offer and considering pwc. Good luck with the decision and nice work!
