Definitely a sales role with a Quota you’d be expected to hit; not the most common exit opp after consulting due to the heavy sales aspect. Do it if you thrive on sales but it will be less corporate and org focused as opposed to consulting.

My friend works as one. Seems pretty sales-y with not much strategy involved. As part of their job, they go to trade conferences to network and host potential “clients” for full days on site.

It really depends, as the BD group is pretty vast and has a couple of different functions. If the role has a quota, it will generally say so in the JD. There are also BD roles that are focused on partnerships and strategy, depending on the group they roll up into. Do you have the JD or know what group it's related to?

I'm a Microsoft Dynamics and C# Developer at a Big 4 consulting firm. But... working with Dynamics for the last 5 or 6 years is starting to wear on me. The salary is great because there is a shortage of qualified Dynamics developers, but I want to do something else, even if that's just back to being a run of the mill C# Developer. Maybe this is more of a rant or I'm letting off steam, but has anybody on here ever essentially gone from a specialized type of roll to more general role?

I’m in a small-ish office. managing partner of my office & my practice group leader said I could work from home some days per week. Most people seem fine with it except one partner (who has most of the work to give out). Should I stick to my guns and continue to work from home on my days or should I give in to this partners’ passive aggressive side comments generally about people “not actually working” even though I’ve maintained my hours and have gotten every assignment done and done well?
