I have the following two choices for my next career move:
1) Business Analyst - Strategy at Deloitte (not a lot of things to explain here). Global brand and #4 Consulting company in the world.
2) Business Analyst - Pricing at Blueground (https://www.theblueground.com/). This is a fast growing startup, founded and run by ex-McKinsey consultants. The exposure to them is high, the responsibilities of the role a lot more than that of Deloitte and the salary is +50% of what Deloitte offers. The pricing department is very vital in the business model of this startup and it is a part of the Strategy Department. The career advancement in terms of getting to more senior roles is faster here too.
At the same time, I am waiting for a final decision from McKinsey by the end of the week, but I have to communicate an initial decision to the previous two as soon as possible and, of course, decide between one of them in case I will not have positive news from the Firm. My career plan is to pursue an MBA in 2-3 years from a top EU university and generally, Strategy Consulting is what I would like to pursue and work on.
Which of the two options would you suggest to me?
Any opinion from people with professional consulting experience will be very helpful.
