Thrive in T2 or restart at MBB
A philosophical one.
I am at what many would call a good T2, along the lines of OW or S& in London.
I joined as an associate equivalent with a PhD from a HYS (engineering) last year and been thriving since. Got early promotion to Senior. My team loves me and I love them back. However I am concerned that my exits ops may be limited if I want to go into big tech given. I missed my chance to apply to two of them and turned down an offer for ops consulting at in Madrid as the projects sounded dull.
Going to mbb may be possible as I got approached by one of them. I would retain my SA role but loose my network and reputation that has so far fast tracked me. Are exit opps significantly better at mbb vs a good T2?
