Consulting

2 years out of college and working as a strategy consultant. Is it unrealistic of me to feel like an entry-level analyst/associate role at a boutique firm is beneath me?

“Beneath me” is an interesting way to put it But if you’re truly in ACN Strat, idk why you would move to a boutique entry level role unless they’re paying you a metric ass ton of money.

They do more growth/innovation strategy work and it's in the city I want to move to.

Yes. It is unrealistic and an absolute turn off.

😂😂 Yeah, it’s pretty unrealistic unless you’ve done two years of the type of work you’re going to be doing at the new firm. If that’s the case, argue your past exp should provide you a better role. Otherwise they see you (rightly) as an entry level hire since you’ve never done the work you’re being hired for...

Only way to not "do the time" is to start your own thing. If you want a quick promo internally, you'll need to be an "intrapraneur" and start several big projects yourself. Don't expect to jump too many ranks, but if you can pull a few clients and pipe them in through the same right person, they might stick their neck out to fast track you a level or two up

At my firm it goes Analyst—>Assoc—->Sr. Assoc and you don’t get to sr assoc w/o 5 to 6 years experience. I wouldn’t ever join as an analyst, but “associate” at a lot of firms is pretty std in that 3-5 year experience margin. Titles aren’t everything as long as the money and responsibilities are in line with what you’d expect

SO has issues keeping it up. I’ve asked what I can do to make it easier/more enjoyable/etc. but he just has to be in a very specific mood. Understandable but disappointed as I have a higher drive
