Went from industry to consulting. Major difference is the ability of folks in consulting to find work rather than admit that they have nothing to do. PMO'ing the hell out of everything with excruciating detail takes a lot of focus...consultants can do it. Industry folks will say fuck off and go home 😂

Yeah that wasn't English. I went from government engineer to big 4 consultant. Haha you can imagine what a slap in the face that was. People are so much more motivated and efficient. Work a lot more but make a lot more. I miss doing engineering design but I'm happy with my choice.

Went into industry to consulting. I honestly didn't do much in industry and had a lot of down time. You barely use your brain. But in industry your always staying busy either with client work or PRD. Constantly learning. In o@ you never use your brain in the other you go brain dead with all the work

interesting, thanks, I've only been in consulting (2 years) and can't imagine the time of day dictating when you're done working like oh it's 530 why are you still here? my friends don't get it at all

Industry to Consulting: More Travel, More working hours (40 hrs <> 40 billable hrs), more accountability over work, less interesting work (same 'problem solving' over and over), don't usually see the payoff of projects you spend months on, better vacations (when you can schedule it)

Laughed because they closed the case immediately. Cont.
