I’m conflicted, I have been at a Big 4 Deal Advisory team for some 9 months now, short while into my tenure, I’ve the boss that played a big part for me joining move to become a partner at another Big 4.
Following that, my team has had some drama and for what matters to me, I’ve been on the bench for essentially 9 months. So I’m obviously not so happy. And I’m confident it’s not me that’s the problem (Let’s assume at least, can neve r be sure technically).
Ive had enough to be honest but I’m not sure how to time the move and what firm to move to.
Should, I attempt a move laterally to my former boss‘ (who hired me), I like them and they’re the only person I’d move laterally.
Should I attempt an “upgrade“ MBB, or other Advisory.
Or should I just wait while the market is down and keep the stability, as it’s probably the quickest way for me to get a promotion.
noting that my goal in 5 years time is to start doing my own thing, and if I we’re to be promoted where I’m at I would move instantly
