I did it. Used consulting to grab a higher salary in industry. Did industry corporate strategy for a few years. Was fun. Got really mundane as I got into the minutiae of smaller company. Exited back to consulting at a higher level, 30% pay bump. Definitely happier with my second consulting gig, but it’s starting to get old again Now 4 more years of consulting, and I’m circling back towards another industry exit. Onward and upward friends


Same. I just get bored and after a nice break from travel and crazy hours, I can do it for a few years ago.

I did it. Went to industry because I thought we were permanently relocating to S.C. My hubby retired and decided he’d like to do 6 months in OH/6 months in S.C. so it was back to Consulting. Although the frequent travel gets to me, it’s a means to an end. Plus I have grandkids in TX and S.C. so the free miles and tagging on weekends between client trips helps a lot.

I did industry - consulting - industry. Loved (?) the consulting experience I had because as much as I hated it, I get it now and can relate to our external consultants pretty well, and can whip out a pretty damn good PPT. Industry can get boring but I like the consistency rather than flying by the seat of my pants. It’s kind of about the role you’re in too. Potato tomato

Does anyone know/have resources to learn how to help elderly parents deal with fraud/scams? My elderly father (almost 80) has been looped into this historical bond scam. He hasn’t given money (yet), but I’m confident that will be coming. I tried to talk to him; but he is dismissive as “he knows better.” I’ve researched it and it is a known scam. He is on fixed income and can’t drain his money, but I’m afraid he’ll do something stupid like take out a loan against his home or something.
