I am currently a Manager in a non-MBB consulting company.
I got an offer to join a PE-backed tech company to join them a Head of Strategy. The company is growing fast and aiming to become a unicorn in a few years' time, they have a really strong reputation in their domain.
The salary package is double what I receive now + expected bonuses are much higher + they offer participation in equity.
My main concern for accepting this offer is that once I move to a start-up/ smaller tech company I may no longer be perceived as an interesting candidate to work for blue chips or big consulting. Is it the correct way of thinking?
