I am 31 and I am planning to switch jobs. I have done consulting for 4 years, moved to industry for 3 years and now I am planning to go back to consulting to chase the partner dream. In a dilemma if its a good career move or not. How long does it take to make partner at MBB or big 4?. Is it worth the grind or should just stay in industry? Appreciate any insight.

With so many people reportedly leaving consulting, I’m wondering how common is it to leave for less TC? MBB comp $200k+ at 27. Do most people get increases above that or just go to jobs sitting at $150k but that “have better WLB”? *Not looking to include those that switch to industries with intentional disregard about comp (eg public sector, charity, teaching etc).

I’d love to hear from any colleagues who currently work in Big4/MBB/Capgemini et similia in Italy. I have been working in PwC UK for two years and I am progressing very fast in my career (PMO) though every time I apply for jobs in Italy at the above companies, I just get rejected straight away. I understand there’s a lot of elements to consider, but for context: 1. Yes I do have experience in the roles i’m applying for 2. my CV works perfectly fine in the UK Thoughts? Thank you!

Need advice- How do I make my LinkedIn profile more attractive to recruiters from FAANG or MBB apart from listing the relevant experience? It seems like all recruiters that are reaching out lately, are from small firms and for jobs with lower compensation than my current position.
