I need some help in a decision: should I stay at my current small employer and hope for the BCG offer or accept an offer from a better known company and a better role (but still far not as good as MBB)?
Im a recent graduate, soon to have 1 year of full time experience. I’m currently working in a small company - 6 months as a full-time after 6 months being an intern.
I always aimed for consulting and believe I may be good enough for MBB - my current job is due to the little choice I had during worse times of COVID.
I have applied to a number of corporate strategy and consulting positions earlier this summer. Currently, I hold an offer from one company while waiting for the exact date invitation from BCG (since already 4 weeks from the time I was invited to the first round). BCG would be Middle Eastern office, current job + offer are in Europe.
Ultimately, I have 3 choices:
- stay at current company, perform at best during BCG rounds & hope for the best;
- accept the new offer, forget about BCG for next X years;
- accept the new offer, quit the job shortly after the start in case of BCG offer.
Not an easy choice given BCG would be in a potentially less exciting location and given I do not want to be an asshole (quitting already 2nd job so fast).
