Anyone have thoughts on whether it’s a good idea to leave cyber consulting for cyber intel analysis? In terms of comp, future job market, or any other factors.

I made that switch. It's a specialized skillet that is probably less in demand and could have a greater supply because of an influx of ex-mil and intel/poli sci grads. I think it's worth it if you have interest and work for an intel shop like Mandiant or Crowdstrike, but I don't think it would be the best choice in a corporation if the primary goal is growth and $$.

I work for an intel shop and got my name on some public high profile analyses, so I think I could easily pivot again and maybe jump one rung of the ladder. But then I'd be in a new cyber security role all over again.

If I stay in intel it's hard to say, the leadership and senior managerial positions are pretty sparse in number. But they already pay me a lot as an analyst and there are plenty of career progression opportunities even at the individual contributor level.

More and more organizations we assess are moving in the direction of creating a dedicated threat Intel and threat hunting functions. Lots of opportunities for growth and skills gained in this space can easily translate in other security domains.
