I was recently laid off as a first year analyst. Looking for new consulting opportunities, but currently in a limbo stage of my career where I'm not an entry level campus hire, but also don't have 2-3+ years of experience to be considered an experienced hire. Open roles I've seen at various consulting companies have business analyst/entry level positions for 2021 graduates only...any advice/insights on how I should approach this stage of my career or companies hiring non campus, entry level roles?

So I’m a second year consultant. Like most, I was disappointed with compensation this year and am pretty bearish on my future earning potential here. I’m currently interviewing with a big tech company (not FAANG but close) for a position with substantially higher pay as a business analyst. I really wanted to stay til SC/M but the money is too good to pass up. I guess my question is: are there any major downsides to exiting to industry “too early?” Has anyone done it and regretted it?

My current role is a Business Analyst. I am very comfortable interacting with people and also Ambiguity. Recently, I developed quite a lot of interest in Product management and I want to make a transition into this stream. I am completely aware that Business Analysis is different from Product Management. I started taking courses on Udemy to understand more about Product Management and also started reading books. I would love to get handson with the concepts that I am learning, but not sure (TBC)

Not even a year into my role as a Business Analyst. I get positive feedback from project team and the client. Leads and leadership tell me that they see my role starting to pick up more high level, client facing tasks but also picking up tasks where I’m starting to work on and practice leadership skills within the project but some days it feels like I’m more of a PMO than a BA. I’m happy to have A JOB in general but am I being told what I want to hear or am I just not seeing the big picture?

I'm a recent graduate and previously was very close to going to Wall Street. Even though mgmt consulting and banks attract a lot of similar people, I've noticed a HUGE difference in the culture of online communities for the two. Banking (WSO, Insta IB meme pages, etc) are all about money and prestige with a "fuck you" frat bro vibe, whereas consulting ones have a friendlier tone, less money/prestige focus and more liberal political beliefs. I just find this all interesting, any thoughts on it?
