FS OW vs FS EY

 
#1 FS OW vs FS EY

Hi!

I've got some doubts in my head, pls help to address it.

I was working for one of Big 4 firms advisory services practice for last three years and decided to specialize in financial services industry. Last Summer I obtained and accepted EY offer to their FS practice (what was relatively easy). In parallel I passed through 6 interviews within Oliver Wyman Financial Services and they had remained silence until yesterday. So now I'm in a quite interesting position - I've got two months experience in EY and an offer from OW to join them starting mid Nov. Position that OW offered me is the same what I have in EY, region - Europe. So the questions basically are:

1. Is it worth to accept OW offer now and how it will look in my CV in the future?

2. Unofficially (on everybody's mouth) - OW is clearly the leader in FS advisory, but according to rankings that I've found in the internet (eg - vault) - EY is above OW both within career opportunities and overall ratings. Can anybody say something about it?

3. What are the pros and cons on staying in EY vs joining OWFS and what are the exit opps of both?

I need to decide till the end of next week so your help would be very appreciated!

Thanks!

What motivates you? Money? Prestige? The work? The clients? The coffee machine?

This is what I would think about....which may say too much about me...

1. Money - same? Better? Worse? If better....how much better? If worse, is it really worth the sacrifice? Don't go on 'promises' of quick promotion - you can only evaluate an offer given it's tangible attributes, whilst taking into account future prospects...but that is the FUTURE not now.

2. Setting up - you will have to set your network up again at OW...and essentially lose the last 6 months you've had. If you have done a sh1t job then this point is moot...move on.

3. With a short spell somewhere (someone will back me up I'm sure!) for the cv you've got to stay longer at the next place. No one likes a hopper! This will be something you'll have to explain when you move from OW....and giving the prestige reason will unlikely wash, as you'll be giving that line to the next people!

Unrelated point - just because they interviewed you 6 times doesn't mean they are better...and equally true of getting a job 'easily'.

From your post it is clear you are concerned about prestige and rankings. Lots of people don't have a job...remember how lucky you are!!
