I have been with my firm for about 8 months now and I hate it. I do like my industry focus but I have a very technical background and my role as a consultant is not playing to my strengths. (contd)

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?

Need honest opinion from 🐠. Background: previously a big four consultant in tech consulting. Didn’t like the tech implementation work at all and needed to pivot. After obtaining my masters in data science, I landed a good role that actually uses what I’ve learned. However, this role also made me realize that data science (at least in this organization) has a very low ceiling, and is also highly on the technical side. I see myself eventually wanting to move to leadership/management positions.

Currently a consultant making ~104k base. Will likely be promoted to manager this year (assuming that’s ~130k base). Have the opp to move to a startup company paying ~115k with no bonus - the role is much more aligned to what I am interested in/industry I want to be in long term. My job at ACN is fine & I work with great people & am learning a lot, but I am not at all passionate about the work/industry I’m in. Is this job worth the jump if I’m 95% sure of promo, or do I wait until promo to look?

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.
