I have to be honest. i did what you’re considering doing from industry to a MBB firm. The experience has been a net negative and I don’t think the exit ops I’m seeing right now are good. As a whole, the brand, network, quality of exit ops enabled by the brand, etc aren’t worth it. If it was a significant comp bump or you really want to be a partner, i might consider it, but otherwise I’d say no. These firms are notoriously bad at integrating lateral hires and the WLB is awful.

Very helpful, can you share your journey and background a bit more

What do you mean by “industry circles”? As in you have a strong branch within a niche industry - but nothing broader? If the above is true, sounds like a key question is whether you want to stay in that industry or expand.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people.

Thoughts?
