I looked into that and it seems Gamma is more tailored to Data Science backgrounds. Is that correct?

Why MBB?

Why not?...The same reason anyone would say trying to get into MBB strategy consulting.

The quality of sharpness drops dramatically in implementation at MBB. Most of their generalist consultants and partners (who will lead and shape engagements day to day and whom you will report to) will have minimal understanding of the intricacies and details of implementation. You will negotiate with them to avoid making slides when you need to be doing real work. Your Platinion or Bain/McK digital folks with implementation experience will be high quality, but they’re not going to be the ones leading the work. If that sounds palatable to you @OP, come aboard, but go in eyes open. MBB rates are far too high to go toe to toe with Big 4/Accn unless they are selling a full suite of work to a client (end-to-end, multi year). The people here are brilliant strategic thinkers and operations people, but they lag far behind seasoned folks who can do implementation at the highest levels.

This is prob a question for the recruiters at your school - I’d talk to them about tech implementation specific roles

Just lateraled to a bigger law firm. The team I am on is much larger now and split between 4 offices. My prior firm was great at rationing the workload amongst associates. At my nee firm, it feels like a free for all. I want to make myself known as a hardworking associate but also don’t know how to say no to new work politely. It seems like every conversation I have when I meet a new team member consists of them telling me how much they need my help and putting me on a new project

I posted in the Healthcare bowl but didn’t get quality responses. PE is notorious for being difficult to break into unless you’re IB. However, there are success stories of consultants making it. Healthcare consulting is lucrative because it requires a very niche knowledge base that is honestly rather difficult to acquire. I’m wondering if that niche knowledge base would make it easier to exit to a healthcare-focused PE firm. Thoughts? Also, general tips for moving to PE would be helpful!
