Leaving while in MD pipeline for a VP Role? Smaller client, but executive role at a public ally traded company, but in an industry I wouldn’t want long-term. Not planning on being in consulting for life, but have looked at SMs who left our firm and seems like those who leave at MD go much further in careers (realize some is talent aspect).

It’s like watching my MD reject my factual data/story, tell the client whatever they want to hear and then exit conference room left. I go back to the client daily reality. The execs rejoice.
