Looking to exit strategy consulting into a more finance focused role. M&A consulting seems to a natural fit. Can anyone provide guidance on firms to target or overall way to go about this? Thanks

I am applying for some in-house roles and wanted to hear from other brand strategists who have made the transition. Thinking about job requirements like “experience developing a marketing plan” which a strategist would understand but not have experience developing...I’m wondering how you spoke about your background and skill set in an interview process to overcome a lack of in-house experience? Thanks for any thoughts

At 25 would you max 401k then focus on saving for a down payment or prioritize the down payment and lower 401k contribution?
Has anyone ever been promoted to ACD only to feel like they were much happier at the Senior CW/AD level? I’m going through that right now and wondering if it will pass with time as I get more experience in the role. Or, if it doesn’t, what do you do about it? Would it look horrible to eventually take a job somewhere else back at the Senior CW level? I’ve always loved being the maker - focusing on writing and concepting. Having a lot of anxiety that this new position isn’t the right path for me.

Do you guys like or dislike this WFH situation? I personally find it pretty nice. Easier to squeeze in a workout, spend time with SO etc.
Any idea what a audit assistant does? I am shocked to see something graduate with a accounting degree get a audit assistance job at big 4.
Am I allowed to say who my clients were on my projects in an interview or do I have to use this “I did an operational transformation for a Fortune 500 company” bullshit?
Anyone working near ORD? I’m on a project here for the next few months and my team is pretty small so an occasional drink/dinner friend would be great.

Looking for ZS referral - very interested in a Decision Analytics Consultant/Growth Marketing position. If anyone at ZS current works in the space would love to connect and hear what the work is like.
Need some advice. I am super burnt out due to work, covid, etc. My firm offers a 3month internal rotation that is very popular - you keep full pay while having predictable hours & no client work. I’ve always been interested in it and the timing seems right. My main Partner is NOT supportive and says I should take medical leave instead or drop to part-time. He doesn’t have a project for me to work on but doesn’t want me doing anything else. Should I take the role at a risk to this relationship?
Does anyone else struggle with being on the bench? It's been 4 weeks and it's starting to take a toll on me. How do you cope? Scared of being fired! Being passed over for analysts with more experience
Very close to making principal with a top tier consulting firm (6-8 months). Have received a good offer from industry in their strategy team. It's definitely a bit of a step down in terms of where I am today and future revenues. I really liked the role and people though. I want a more balanced life (family, social, sports) and know enough that it's not possible in our profession. Is the exit worth it or I should just suck it up and make principal? Any personal experiences in such a situation
Got a quote for term life insurance. 30 years coverage, $1M plan. Healthy in my 30s. Quote is >$4k / year which sounds insane. Is that what term life insurance typically costs in this case?
