Any thoughts on what might be a better choice, I've been offered two positions one as an associate with a venture capital firm, the other a consultant with a big strategy house.
Both are interesting and involve a lot of similar kinds of work in terms of due dilligence, financial analysis and modelling, business models etc etc etc. The path to a partner level position at the VC firm may however take a lot longer (and according to my potential employer may require a return to business school for an MBA, I already have a masters and PhD so am not so keen on that right now). The consulting position doesn't seem to 'require' this as I already have an advanced degree and significant industry experience in the UK and US. I'm not sure what the salary difference might be both now in the short term, and longer at higher levels.
Thoughts and insights would be graciously received.
