Any advice going from a tech/implementation role to a S&O role at another firm?

Can we switch? I liked implementation SOOOO much more than this S&O stuff and now I can’t switch for a year

Your best bet is to switch internally. Network with higher ups (the higher the better, think Practice Lead) and state your interest. Offer to work on BD. Even if you get fed up and leave you can always tap that network to return into a Strategy role. I’ve found it’s difficult to make a switch to another firm doing anything other than exactly what you were doing in your previous firm

Good luck pain in the ass

Honestly you gotta know people. Play politics and get on projects that have some strategy. Offer to do anything to help and slowly try to do it within your firm. If not no firm will touch you because they don’t want to take a chance while they are climbing the later

One route is the MBA route, which is what I took. An expensive one though. If you already have an MBA, try applying to jobs you like

That’s always an option for sure. Just have to see if the amount of debt I’d be in is worth it

Should I switch to another consulting firm to get more exposure to other industries or should I directly exit to industry, and if so, which one?

Any thoughts on ESPPs? I finished a final round with a startup who was acquired by a well known corporate company in late 2020. The startup used to offer stock but now employees can only buy stock through the parent’s ESPP at a 15% decrease of market rate (currently $300/share). Base would be $140K, 10% bonus. Do you think negotiating for more base because there’s no stock in TC would be a good idea? And any experience with ESPPs?
