2.5yrs at BCG. Bachelor’s in engineering at HYP, two prior tech/engineering internships. Active TS/SCI with poly. Any point in sticking around longer if I want to exit for tech?

Don’t see a future here, and fear that waiting longer will reduce the value of my technical background

Depends on tech role. SWE or PM you’re burning valuable time

Depends where you want to go. I doubt you’re looking for a career in govt and career progression is much slower in industry than consulting. Id stay, boost your earning potential for a few years but make sure you leave well before your clearance expires

What do you wanna do in tech

Yes start recruiting soon to have something locked in by 3 YOE. No need to wait longer — you have the MBB toolkit already.
