Am leaning towards the SOC role cos Iíve heard horror stories about the Big 4 culture. Not sure if itís the right path. And yup the SOC role pays better but pay isnít really an issue for me now hahaha more towards progression

Consulting will always have better exit options. SOC doesn't make you stand out nor give you the breadth of experience that consulting does.

Been reading posts from other threads saying how Big 4 isn't as prestigious as it used to be/not the best place to be at for fresh grads etc.....

How true is this in the cybersecurity space? is it the best place to be at to start a career in cybersecurity?

i think it is eziler to get in to big4 freshgrad as some of the hiring manager hire base on your attitude.

Some of the other consulting firm will be harder to get in as they expect you to already have some basic hand on cert or you can break some of the VM boxes which they prepare for you during the tech test

easier to get in but do note that stuff which require certifications, you would not be able to do.
