Hey all - I wanted some help assessing my chances at a consulting firm. Out of college, I worked with a consulting firm performing roles in analytics sales and delivery. I did that for 2 yrs before moving to a startup where I was a part of an enterprise wide data migration and reorg project. I worked with the CSuite on the delivery of that one. 1.5 years later I am working as an internal healthcare analytics consultant. Do you think my profile is okay enough to be an analytics consultant?

Are there benefits to staying at a consulting firm for more than a year if the exit opportunities offer more? Analytics consultant here, looking to be earning about 90k next year. I think I could make 120k in industry, but I could probably exit closer to 160 in about 5 years. Am I foolish for thinking it’d be better to stay given the learning opportunities?

Can anyone talk to me about their experience with Slalom Consulting? Years ago, I interviewed with them and it didn’t work out. Their benefits were okay-ish and during the interview for data analytics consultant position, I found it strange that they wanted to quiz me on simple SQL and Tableau features rather than how I used different tools to solve problems. I was looking to help a friend look for opportunities in the area and I found out that everyone who interviewed me left already

He said that most young guys who are now Senior Managers and Directors have No Clue what is going to happen if we go to another recession, he doubts they even have been through one. What are yours thoughts? 14years of growth
