I worked with this superstar consultant (who happened to be black). Once project ended I moved to another very similar project where one more consultant was needed. I recommended the superstar consultant obviously because he would have killed it in that role. Middle aged white manager talked to him and said he wasn’t a good fit. Literally brought on another white consultant who just joined the firm instead. I’m fuming.

I hate the “up or out model”. Why can’t I stay at the sweet, sweet SA position and make $180k in perpetuity, while capitalizing on travel perks? A consultant can wish.

Hi everyone! Clueless young consultant here looking for advice. Been at a Tier 2 strategy firm (mostly PE due diligence but also some Corp strategy projects) for 10 months out of undergrad. Eventual dream job would be F500 corporate strategy role. What would be an intermediate step to exit to in order to move along my ideal career progression?

Has anyone left Big 4 to go independent with current client? My current client offered me a full time role but I want to come in as an independent consultant. I’d save them money and think they’d go for it. I’d use it as my first client and look to try my own consulting business. It’s always been my dream and I don’t see myself going through the ringer to make partner although I respect folks who do a ton. Just not for me. Too much mental health issues already. Can’t add that stress.

Hey folks - reaching out for advice. Fmr LS strategy consultant that moved onto a VC/BD role at a seed fund. Was just recently accepted to a state medical school (nothing special but I received scholarship and won’t have to take out a loan to pay for school), but of course it is the opportunity to train as a physician. Given the current economic outlook, what would you do if you were in my shoes? If you didn’t go to medical school, what would you try to do?

I'm considering becoming a change management consultant (2 YOE), a few questions I'd love help with: What exit ops beyond HR does this give me? What core skills are most valuable? Would you recommend this path to someone who wants to stay in consulting for at least 10 years? Thank you so much!
