5 years in consulting, promoted every 1.5 years, recognized top performer in my firm. Specialized in life sciences consulting (background in psychology + MBA) and wondering if there’s anything else I can do other than work for big Pharma or biotech? Feeling very limited in exit opps as recruiters seem to want to hire for LS consulting or Pharma only.

You can try switching industries and applying to roles you’re interested in/contact recruiters outside of LS but might have to take a demotion due to lack of demonstrated industry expertise.

What are you interested in doing?

Hey! I've always wanted to get into IB (prestige, money, you name it), however now that I'm in a more laid back environment (better WLB, "easier work") it doesn't seem as attractive as before and the pay is quite good for an analyst level (I think the pay is competitive even comparing with IB's pay in my country) . I wanted to know if anyone had the same experience and what were your thoughts (pursue an MBA and leave your comfort zone and "good pay" or just stick with it). TIA!

Maybe this is more of a rant or I'm letting off steam, but has anybody on here ever essentially gone from a specialized type of roll to more general role?
