After how many years of experience is it best/most lucrative to exit consulting to industry?

Why so?

1 YOE, immediately after undergrad. Enough time to become an SME in whatever domain you’re in, so industry clients should be banging on your door to join them.

Any extra time spent in consulting and you’re looked at as damaged goods.

Probably personal bias, but I have a strong preference for hiring people that were promoted in their last role.

I've seen too many mediocre people get promoted primarily by jumping without picking up the requisite skillsets.

Depends on each individual's circumstances and goals.

But it's true. E.g. Someone who started off in consulting right after undergrad would and is in their 20s may have a diff exit criteria than someone who entered consulting mid-life and has a family etc.

It'll vary a bit depending on the type of consulting you do and the actual skills you pick up, but generally SC level is the sweet spot for an exit, with M a bit behind.

Earlier than that and many industry firms view you as not having picked up enough to differentiate yourself, later than that and you're generally expected to have deeper expertise in XYZ area than consultants tend to have.

I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.

To all my Canadian 🐠 in Consulting, I need your help please :) I am a management consulting analyst at Accenture, it’s been 1.5 years and I have an interview at KPMG coming up. When I spoke to the recruiter, she said she would consider me for a Consultant role (which is the same level as my current level at Accenture, at KPMG they start at consultant, at Accenture we start as analyst). Is it fair to ask to be considered for a senior consultant role at KPMG? details to follow
