Currently Technology Risk Staff 2 at EY. Have been here for 1.5 years and all i do is IT audit and SOC reporting.
Now I absolutely do not like IT Audit but also risk consulting is not at all consulting. Have always wanted to move to more technical space since i have technical skills.
I recently got an offer from Big Tech as a Senior Analyst in their Security GRC practice which also involves SOC reporting. But also risk around Cloud computing as well as cloud migration etc. It is not a fully technical role but it is in Big Tech with huge presence in Silicon Valley and Seattle.
Now im not sure if this is worth it? The role is still in Risk but specifically around GRC and Information security. The money is wayyy better too (100K plus) whereas staff 2 is paid peanuts. Should i take the offer and hope to move to more technical role in big tech?
Or just try for more technical roles and kiss this GRC security role goodbye? Or should i just stay lol?
