I'm in the position of two verbal offers, one from EY and one from Deloitte. Both in the same sector and same location. I got the EY offer first at Senior Consultant level at a package I'm happy with. Then Deloitte matched the package but at Consultant level. They're reasoning is they aren't sure I'm quite there yet in terms of being a Senior vs a Consultant but want to hire me so are happy to match the EY Senior Consultant package but not the grade level.
I'd be coming in as an experienced hire with approx. 3 years experience but in a totally different sector than the one I'd be moving to. I can't decide if it makes more sense to come in lower at the same salary/package (Deloitte) or if it makes more sense to come in higher (EY) as I am an experience hire and is it a snub on the work I've done previously.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
