if you want to be a data scientist, don't go into consulting frankly or get out after a couple years. a lot of the best talent is in tech

Best way to grow as a data scientist is to pick up some relevant skills in the 1-3 years you're in the firm and jump ship from consulting. You won't develop fast enough or be compensated enough for Data Science skills in consulting.

Does D, or any of these firms, actually do data science though? Or is it just configuring existing solutions to that specific need? True Data science is really more of a research role, the title has sort of been bastardized and expanded to anyone that uses some kind of model to do semi-complicated analysis. I remember seeing an article recently that said that pwc hired 13,000 data scientist last year, I can tell you for certain that we probably don't have more than 13 true data scientists... more like "data engineers"

We do a lot of cutting edge data science! If you are interested in being a tech/data science specialized consultant, salary and progression is the same as in strategy (i.e. total comp>$100k out of undergrad). We also have data science specialists (not client facing).

Would second PwC2's comment. Consulting applies tried and true methods, we don't typically have anything all that "cutting edge" for specialties like data science. Hitup Google, amazon, and the likes for that

like

Think D is a good starting point for Data Science in terms of learning fundamentals and how to function in a structured, corporate world. It's also a good resume builder if you can't get into a tech firm right away. Chances are, unless you're brilliant, you're not getting Google without some prior work experience under your belt

I got a good thing going on at work. I’m getting book work all the time but I am ready for a promotion. Here’s the thing, I feel like they don’t give promotions out unless you have an offer. My thing is, I don’t like to play that game. If I have an offer somewhere else I’m going to take it. Another dilemma is, it’s seems like everyone is hiring right now and they are all good opportunities. If I wait around, let’s say 6 months, I’m afraid no one will be hiring at that point. What would you do?

Boomers are often considered selfish, right? Consider the following: People over the age of 75 comprise 54% of COVID deaths. At that age, the actuarial tables aren’t exactly favorable to begin with.

Throwing the world into a state of absolute chaos (thereby sticking younger generations with the long-term consequences) is next level.
