I recently received an offer from Mastercard Advisors as an Associate Consultant. I was told that the teams only deal with external clients such as banks, governments, and merchants. Everything i heard otherwise about in-house consulting. I'm a little bit puzzled by the nature of this company, and i need clarification because I want to sort out the career progression as well as exit opportunity for Mastercard Advisors. As i heard, in-house consulting has slower progression and the exit opportunity is narrower, and the work/brand is less valuable comparing to other external consulting firms.
Truly appreciate if anyone can shed some light on this!
