2YoE at Tier 2 FS practice, considering a switch to commercial law. Any thoughts on the long-term TC trajectory at MBB/Tier 2 consulting vs Magic circle law? Also on the stability of the respective careers? I have this perception that even if I don’t survive Commercial law, at least I can move to Swindon or Milton Keynes and retrain as a high street solicitor doing divorce filings making £50k for the rest of my career. Exit opportunity for consultants seems to be pretty bleak in UK.

Exit opportunities here aren’t great but they’re better than 50k.

uplifting

I think exit opportunities to FS are a different story than non-FS. For example, I’ve got some friends who have exited consulting into FS at an early manager level and are earning over £100k.

helpful

What on earth makes you want to be a random divorce solicitor vs take any normal consulting exit?!

I’ve been working in cyber risk in the federal sector for a few years and I’m finding I enjoy “advise” projects much more than operate/implement (I’m guessing on the implement piece since I’ve done pursuits for it and seen the technical sections, but I haven’t done the work). If I wanted to pivot into a strategy firm and stay federal (or government in general), what firms would be ideal? I’m not basing it off prestige (MBB vs non MBB).

Looking for some good vibes, I guess 🦚 🍄🍀☀️Having long lived the “happy life” aka a successful career and a loving relationship, I suddenly find myself unemployed, struggling to find a new role, and in constant fights with my partner following our engagement. Uff. I know, it’ll all be ok eventually, but there are these moments when it’s tough to see the silver lining. How do you keep your chin up on days like these? 🌈
