Rare PIP success story. Props OP

Oh yeah. Congrats. How did you get into PIP anyway?

Congrats OP. I'm in the same boat as K1...How did you get on a PIP?

Combination of an overly professional counselor, mediocre performance on client projects, and little to no involvement in BD work.

I just got laid off from a strategy consulting boutique in the UK that primarily works with PE funds doing CDD/VDD. It goes without saying that the market is terrible. I suspect no strategy firms are hiring and it will need to be an in-house move or if I could stretch it PE/VC. What are people’s thoughts and does anyone have any advice?
