Anyone have insight into the kind of WL balance and salary to expect for the corporate strategy analyst positions I see a lot of people jump to after a couple years?

Recently made the jump and the work life balance improvement is incredible - later start times and more reasonable hours overall by ALOT. The only think I miss from consulting is my unlimited PTO

I left for a Corp Strat manager role (hired when a SC but waited til M promotion was official to put in two weeks notice). Got ~$50k total comp bump and decreased my work hours by 40-50%. Best decision I ever made.

For your future self: write out things rather than substituting with an acronym that nobody will immediately understand when you're asking a group of random people a question.

@kpmg 1, is “WL balance" really that hard to work out via context clues on a consulting forum? Would honestly be surprised if anybody on here couldn’t figure that out in less than 3 seconds.

@D1 6 years consulting experience then? Would you recommend waiting to make the jump until manager level, or getting in earlier?

2.5 years as BA, then did GSAP MBA, then 2 more years before I moved. The company I went to doesn’t have analyst level Corp Strat people so I don’t know how attractive those opportunities are... but leaving post-MBA (and after getting it paid for) made a whole lot of sense for me financially.

Past:

• Join the new company.

Now:

• Get an offer.
• Apply notice period.
• Apply to more companies now with "on Notice Period" while applying.
• Collect as many competing offer letters as possible. (Amazon is a must)
• Invite all the recruiters to a zoom call and conduct an auction.
• Pick the best and ditch rest of the companies.
• Ditch the auction winner also two days before the join
