I work in Qatar as a market researcher in a public sector organisation. I have been in this role for the past year before which I was engaged in Academics in London. I have been offered a position in a Big4 Corp Fin Advising division. I know as a career progression I want to progress into consulting and in places like UK or Europe taking up a role in Corp Fin Advisory would most definetely lead on to that. But does the same apply to Big4 in the Middle East? I read a thread about Consulting in the ME and people adivising that its different from Europe. Another imp factor is this would mean an almost 20% paycut. Is Big4 consulting experience worth such a paycut?
